Orthopedic Malpractice

Philadelphia Orthopedic Negligence Lawyer

Malpractice & Errors in Orthopedics

Orthopedics is the branch of medicine dealing with correcting and preventing deformities, injuries, or disorders affecting the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. We may seek treatment from an orthopedic specialist after sustaining broken bones in an accident, to correct a deformity, or to address a sport- or fall-related soft tissue injury.

If you recently underwent orthopedic surgery or sought treatment from an orthopedic doctor for any reason, and you believe that you were injured because of their failure to provide proper care, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. We at The Villari Firm, PLLC can talk to you about what happened and can help you explore your options, the value of your potential claim, and how to pursue compensation to cover new medical expenses, ongoing treatment, lost earnings, and possibly much more.

Our Philadelphia orthopedic malpractice attorney takes on cases involving:

  • Failure to diagnose a bone fracture
  • Improper treatment of a fracture
  • Improper setting of a broken bone
  • Misreading an X-ray, MIR, or CT scan
  • Failure to diagnose nerve impingement/damage
  • Improper fracture repair
  • Compartment syndrome caused by a too-tight cast
  • Improper placement of orthopedic hardware
  • Orthopedic surgery errors
  • Local or general anesthesia mistakes
  • Post-operative infection

Consequences of Orthopedic Malpractice

Errors and negligence on the part of an orthopedic doctor or surgeon can have disastrous or even deadly results. Fatal blood clots, permanent nerve or muscle damage, spinal cord injury, hip or joint problems, infection, and decreased mobility are all potential consequences of orthopedic malpractice. When such injuries occur, patients have the right to seek justice in civil court.

Proving orthopedic malpractice is a technical matter. It is also challenging, but involving medical experts and meticulously investigating the procedure from every angle will help to expose any failure to provide proper care. Philadelphia orthopedic negligence lawyer Heidi G. Villari has over 20 years of legal experience and knows what indicators to look for in these cases. Once she has found proof, she fights to make sure any and all at-fault parties are held accountable. This determination has led to over $125 million in recoveries, and it may lead to the recovery of maximum compensation in your case.
