Anyone who has ever undergone surgery knows how nerve-wracking it can be. You put your trust in your surgeon to be the right person for the job. What if the surgeon is distracted or does not make your health and safety their top priority?

The Dangers Of 'Never Events'

Surgical errors are among the most dangerous ways a doctor can commit medical malpractice. The Weitz Firm, LLC, advocates on behalf of surgical error victims in Philadelphia, across Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and across the United States. We are prepared to represent clients after any surgical mistake, such as:

  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Leaving surgical instruments or other equipment inside the patient's body
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Failure to take appropriate action if complications occur
  • Not addressing post-procedure complications timely and appropriately

Fixing Surgical Errors

A serious error can force you to undergo revision surgery to undo the mistake. In some cases, revision surgery and other treatments may not be able to reverse what happened to you, and you must live with permanent disability. In the worst cases, families lose a member because of surgical negligence.

Attorney Eric H. Weitz is committed to putting negligent surgeons on trial. He has secured multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. His work as a trial lawyer has helped expose poor health care practices and improve the standard of medical care.
