PITTSBURGH (AP) - The estate of former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Dwight White remains open a year after his widow settled a wrongful death lawsuit against a hospital for $2.5 million.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported (bit.ly/1n61A36) details of the settlement Wednesday.

The settlement stems from a 2010 lawsuit filed by his widow, Karen White. She claimed her husband’s death was the result of UPMC Presbyterian’s failure to diagnose and treat a massive pulmonary embolism just weeks after White had back surgery.

White died on June 6, 2008 at age 58.

The settlement was approved in 2014. Court documents show that his widow and her daughter will share the payment after a 30 percent legal fee and costs of more than $48,000 are paid out.
