April 14, 2023 — Newburyport, MA — Attorney Robert M. Higgins of well-known Boston medical malpractice law firm, Lubin & Meyer, today obtained a $29 million verdict including interest against a North Shore Medical Center Salem Hospital emergency room physician and hospitalist.
The case involved the death of a 43-year-old disabled man who passed away from an undiagnosed and untreated aortic aneurysm and dissection.
The verdict came less than 4 weeks after Attorney Higgins' $28.8 million verdict in a trial in a case where a man's blood clot was twice misdiagnosed as sciatica by Lowell Genereral Hospital emergency department staff resulting in leg amputation. That verdict was covered by The Boston Globe.
