Family Awarded $29M in Lawsuit Against Hospital in Massachusetts

Salem Hospital has been ordered to pay a local family $29 million, most of it over the next 28 years, after the father died from an undiagnosed and untreated aortic aneurysm and dissection at Salem Hospital in 2018.

Boston-based medical malpractice law firm Lubin & Meyer recently obtained the eight-figure award against a pair of Salem Hospital doctors following a two-week trial in Essex Superior Court in Newburyport.

At the center of the case is an aortic aneurysm that doctors failed to diagnose when Joseph Brown visited the hospital’s emergency room on Jan. 13, 2018. The suit was brought by Kristin Eckhardt, Brown’s partner acting on behalf of his estate, and most of the award goes to his two daughters, who were 12 and 18 at the time of his death.
