a medical condition is for it to be accurately diagnosed. This applies

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

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
- 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.
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.
