Ross Feller Casey recently filed a major wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a man who alleges that his wife died as the result of medical malpractice.

The suit, filed in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, alleges among other things that Abington Medical Center and several doctors failed to properly diagnose and treat Anne
Springfield, 62, of Willow Grove, in late August and September 2016.

Anne Springfield initially went to the emergency room complaining of lightheadedness, generalized aches and fever. Doctors prescribed and administered Heparin. The next day, she was found unresponsive as a result of a subarachnoid hemorrhage. She died on Sept. 10.

Despite obvious warning signs, doctors continued to administer Heparin, a blood thinner, which caused a brain aneurysm and irreversible injuries, according to the lawsuit filed by Ross Feller Casey founding partner Robert Ross on behalf of Anne Springfield’s husband, James Springfield.

The Pennsylvania Record, an online law journal, reported on the lawsuit.
