A Man's Death From A Lung Blood Clot.

A jury has awarded the family of a Southwest Side man $3 million in connection with the man's death from a lung blood clot his family claimed should have been prevented by doctors, officials said Tuesday.

The jury of seven men and five women before Judge James S. Quinlan Jr. returned a verdict in favor of the family of John Stone and awarded them $3.049 million after finding against Mercy Hospital and Medical Center on Monday, according to court records.

Stone's Family Filed A Medical Malpractice Suit.

Stone's family filed a medical malpractice suit after Stone, 30, died at Mercy in 1994 due to a blood clot in his lung.

Attorneys representing his family claimed Mercy and three doctors Mohammad Atassi, Amer Husseini and Thomas R. Hill failed to properly treat a blood clot in Stone's leg that led to the large clot in his lungs. Although all three were named as defendants, the jury only found the South Side hospital to be responsible.
