Though many doctors in the U.S. are skilled and caring, others don’t always put their patients’ needs first. Some physicians have used broken equipment, misdiagnosed patients, or made surgical errors. Unfortunately, these types of mistakes often turn out to be fatal.

For more than a quarter-century, Weitz & Luxenberg has been winning complicated medical cases. Since its inception, our medical malpractice team has worked on 1,000-plus lawsuits for wrongful death, injury, and misdiagnosis, recovering $7 million for our clients in one year alone.*
