Fighting for the Rights of Injured Patients in Pennsylvania

Whether we go in for routine checkups or seek emergency medical care, we trust that the doctors, surgeons, nurses, and the other healthcare professionals who handle our cases are providing a standard level of care. We often have no choice but to listen to their recommendations so we can make decisions regarding our treatment, which we then hope will be properly carried out. If something goes wrong, most of us do not have the medical know-how to determine whether or not medical malpractice was involved.

At The Villari Firm, PLLC, we can provide the knowledgeable insight you need after a potential instance of medical malpractice or negligence. These are complex matters, but Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyer Heidi G. Villari has over 20 years of legal experience and a solid understanding of common mistakes, errors, and acts of negligence that can lead to a patient’s injury or wrongful death.

If you suspect that you received substandard medical care, call (215) 372-8889 or contact us online. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to review your case.

Grounds for a Medical Malpractice Case in Pennsylvania

Not every poor medical outcome is caused by medical malpractice. Sometimes a physician can make all the right choices and a patient can still suffer harm from their injury or illness.

In order to have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit you must demonstrate the following:

  • Violation of the standard of care: Doctors, nurses, etc, are required to receive similar education and experience to others in the same profession. If your healthcare professional acted in a way that was contrary to this standard, you may be the victim of medical malpractice.
  • Factual cause of harm: If the violation of care can be proven, the patient must then show that the malpractice was the reason they suffered harm.
  • Damages: A medical malpractice claim must be able to show that the patient suffered harm, or damages, and demonstrate what those damages are.
  • Certificate of Merit: In the state of Pennsylvania, the patient must obtain a signed certificate from an expert witness (such as a doctor) that supports the validity of their claim.
Our Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney has been representing victims of personal injury and medical malpractice since 1998, and has recovered over $125 million in settlements and verdicts. Our firm can evaluate your medical malpractice case and help you obtain all necessary documentation to support your claim! Call us at (215) 372-8889!

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

There are different types of medical malpractice. Any one can cause catastrophic injuries, emotional trauma, or even the death of a patient. Our Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyer has experience with all forms of malpractice by healthcare professionals. We work with experts in medicine, economics, and other specialized fields to uncover and prove malpractice when it occurs.

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: When a doctor or other healthcare provider does not properly diagnose your condition, the results can be detrimental to your health. When misdiagnosis happens, you might have to go through unnecessary treatments, take harmful medicine, and waste extra time on the wrong issue.
  • Birth Injuries: A birth injury can happen when a doctor, nurse, or other medical provider is negligent during the birthing process that causes harm to the mother or child. Birth injuries to a child can be severe or mild. Potentially, the child might need long term care due to the severe effects their injury cause, which often results in costly expenses for the child’s life.
  • Medication Errors: This occurs when a medical professional gives you the wrong medication, administers the wrong dosage of medicine, directs you to take a combination of drugs that are known to cause complications, or gives you medication that you are allergic to.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your medical malpractice case, you can count on The Villari Firm's knowledge and experience to provide an accurate assessment of the situation and how we can help.
