EDWARDSVILLE — A couple's lawsuit against a doctor alleges negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

Mary Berger and Phil Berger filed a complaint on May 24 in Madison County Circuit Court against Patrick Masching, M.D. alleging that the physician failed to provide proper medical care to Mary Berger.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that, on June 21, 2014, Masching failed to take steps that would have led to a proper diagnosis of a lung disorder. Phil Berger claims loss of consortium.

The plaintiffs seek judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $50,000 plus court costs. They are represented by John J. Hopkins of John J. Hopkins & Associates, P.C. in Alton.
