$1.25 Million Awarded In Blood Clot Death

Compiled From Wire Services

Relatives of a man who died after being examined at The Everett Clinic have been awarded $1.25 million by a Snohomish County Superior Court jury.

Final paperwork was filed Wednesday on the decision, which was rendered last month in the case of Brad Hendricks, who died Jan. 15, 1994, of an undiagnosed blood clot in his lung.

Doctors at the clinic should have been able to determine the problem because Hendricks, 33, had gone to the clinic three times in 33 days, complaining of shortness of breath and chest pain, said Maria Diamond, a lawyer for his family.

Rick Cooper, the clinic’s executive director, said a decision on whether to appeal the award would be made within a week. xxxx
