Philadelphia Misdiagnosis Lawyer

Fighting for Your Right to Complete Compensation

It may seem unnecessary to mention, but the only way to properly treat a medical condition is for it to be accurately diagnosed. This applies for minor injuries and life-threatening illnesses alike. We rely on doctors to take the right steps to diagnose our illnesses and injuries, and if they are negligent or careless, they could cost us our very lives.

Misdiagnosis is one of the primary grounds for medical malpractice lawsuits in the United States. If you sought medical treatment but received an incorrect diagnosis, were diagnosed too late, or were improperly discharged when you needed medical care, The Villari Firm, PLLC can help. We represent patients in Philadelphia and throughout the surrounding areas who have suffered catastrophic injuries or have lost loved ones as a result of misdiagnoses, failures to diagnose, and delayed diagnoses. We are here to listen and help, and we take an unrelenting approach to misdiagnosis cases, fighting for the complete compensation our clients need and deserve.

Misdiagnosis of a Medical Condition

There are countless types of injuries, disorders, illnesses, infections, diseases, and other medical conditions that a person may experience in his or her lifetime. Some are more common than others, and some are extremely difficult to diagnose because their symptoms mimic those of one or more other conditions. All of these challenges aside, your doctor should take reasonable steps to diagnose your illness or injury. This may include ordering additional tests or referring you to a specialist.

If your doctor misdiagnosed your condition:

  • You may have been given the wrong medicine
  • You may have been subjected to unnecessary and painful procedures or even surgery
  • You may have been wrongfully discharged when you needed medical care

You may have suffered serious injury from a condition that would have been treatable, had it been accurately identified. You may have suffered emotional trauma from believing you had a life-threatening illness, when it was actually treatable. Your physical and emotional injuries may affect every area of your life and our Philadelphia misdiagnosis lawyer is here to help you seek justice for your suffering.

Delayed Diagnosis

A delayed diagnosis can be just as dangerous as a misdiagnosis. Certain conditions, like cancer or a heart attack, are best treated (or may only be treatable) if they are caught early. If your doctor delayed in diagnosing a serious medical condition and this led to a shortened lifespan, permanent injury, or the death of a loved one, The Villari Firm, PLLC may be able to assist you in taking legal action against your doctor or another at-fault party.
