Temple University Hospital Malpractice Lawyer

Patients who entered Temple University Hospital in better condition than they exited, patients who relied on life-saving emergency care, and patients who wound up with delayed diagnosis and delayed treatment are all likely candidates of medical malpractice. Here at The Villari Firm, PLLC, our Temple University Hospital malpractice lawyers represent patients, and their surviving loved ones, in all types of medical malpractice claims. We can help get you the compensation you need and deserve, despite what your healthcare providers and Temple University claim.

Common Types of Temple University Hospital Medical Malpractice Cases We Have Handled

  • Delayed Diagnosis—No injury or illness can be treated properly unless it is detected. A delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or failure to diagnose can all lead to a worsening of symptoms, a more complicated treatment plan, and a worse outcome.
  • Cancer Misdiagnosis—Cancer can metastasize rapidly. With some types of cancer, the difference between catching it six months earlier can make all the difference in the patient’s treatment options and their long-term outcome.
  • Heart Attack Misdiagnosis—Chest pain is one of the most common symptoms patients visit the ER. Doctors and other healthcare providers have a duty to recognize signs of heart attack, as early treatment is vital to save the patient’s heart from further damage, and their
  • Hospital Infections—Despite being one of the most sterile places in society, hospitals are also filled with viruses, bacteria, and even fungal infections. Infections can spread when the patient’s wounds are not properly attended to, staff do not use personal protective equipment, and immobilized patients are not rotated (leading to bedsores).
  • Sepsis and Septic Shock—Sepsis is the body’s overreaction to an infection (usually bacterial but also viral and fungal), in which the immune system dumps toxic chemicals into the bloodstream. This can lead to septic shock—a rapid drop in blood pressure—and organ damage and death.
  • Medication Errors—Doctors may prescribe a medication in too large of a dose, nurses may forget to update the patient’s chart (causing an overdose), and pharmacists might fail to notice a conflict between two medications a patient is taking.
  • Birth Injuries—A birth should be a time for celebration, yet far too many families face devastation during delivery. Hypoxia, uncontrollable bleeding, and injuries caused by improper forceps use are just a few examples of doctor negligence during delivery.
  • Surgery Errors—Surgical errors include leaving behind surgical tools and other foreign objects inside a patient’s body, nicking nerves or veins, causing preventable damage to soft tissue or bone, anesthesia errors, and even operating on the wrong body part.
