Weitz uses his 25 years of litigation experience to deliver superior results for clients who have suffered harm at the hands of a negligent doctor, hospital or other health care professional. Mr. Weitz represents clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and around the country.

Forms Of Medical Malpractice

Doctors and hospitals owe their patients a duty to take reasonable steps to protect them from preventable harm. But the truth is, medical malpractice happens all the time. Common forms of malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose an illness or injury
  • Prescribing or administrating the wrong medication or an inappropriate dosage
  • Surgical errors, such as leaving a tool inside the patient's body
  • Unclean hospital facilities causing disease to spread
  • Sending patients home without first finding out what is wrong with them

Most of the time, especially in emergency situations, patients and loved ones must rely on their doctors' judgment, and medical negligence may not be obvious until after the fact. If a doctor or hospital has negligently harmed you, you could be entitled to full financial compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills and other damages — but you need an experienced and aggressive medical malpractice lawyer's help to get it.

Mr. Weitz is a successful litigator who has won multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients. He understands that the best way to advocate for victims of medical malpractice is to take dangerous hospitals and doctors to court and ensure maximum compensation.
