When physicians, doctors and surgeons perform surgical procedures, we expect them to be on top of their game, not to be distracted, fatigued or undertrained for the situation at hand.

For more than 30 years, the law firm of Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, has committed its time, energy and experience to working with individuals and families who have suffered injuries or wrongful death because of a surgical mistake.

Injuries and Wrongful Death at Out-Patient Facilities
Out-patient facilities, while they may look nice, tend not to have the same safety nets found at a hospital. They may lack the proper staff, training or equipment necessary to respond to an emergency, which can lead to catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
