I am not licensed in CA but what you have described sounds like a failure on the part of the medical providers. After a surgery the providers should be aware that clots can develop. Such a failure can result in damages just as you have described. I would call a local lawyer and allow them to obtain your records and complete an investigation. God bless your mother and it is my great hope that she receives appropriate compensation.
I'm sorry to hear about this. A local malpractice lawyer would need to order her medical records and send them to an expert to review to ascertain whether there was a breach of the standard of care.
You must seek the help of a law firm that specializes in medical malpractice matters. We refer such cases to a medical malpractice law firm where the injured's initial consultation is with a Medical Doctor which will get you a quicker response as to knowing if you have a case or not.
