Negligence lawsuit over undiagnosed blood clot death fails

A negligence lawsuit against three doctors, a physician’s assistant and a health clinic failed. A woman died from blood clots which her husband alleges should have been discovered by doctors. She suffered leg pains for 5 years but her pain was not diagnosed and died of a stroke. She was on hormone replacement drugs during this time. The family was seeking $400,000 in damages.
