Van Wey Law, P.L.L.C.

With over 30 years of experience in medical malpractice law, Kay Van Wey has a passion for patient safety advocacy. She strives to ensure that bad medical practices, doctors, and procedures that lead to unfortunate outcomes that could be avoided are removed or lessened so that no one else suffers. Kay believes that most doctors are good doctors, but the system to identify, report and stop bad doctors continually fails patients.

Kay experienced her own personal family tragedy in her late 30s. It was this first-hand experience of the difficult healing process and the long, difficult road to justice that brought her to this practice.

Kay has been honored for her accomplished practice throughout her career, but many clients and practitioners have come to recognize her name following her work on the prosecution of multiple civil cases against “Dr. Death.”

Kay is the Dallas Medical Malpractice columnist for Attorney at Law Magazine. She regularly contributes content about upcoming issues in the medical malpractice industry. She is also soon to be featured on the cover of the Dallas magazine with her story, “Small But Mighty.” Coming soon.

I became involved with this law firm a little over a year ago. I had a horrible experience with the former Doctors Hospital on Garland and Buckner. Suffice it to say that when the dust settled, I endured a double hip replacement. My husband and family felt that I needed to pursue a medical malpractice suit. Brady Williams and his amazing paralegal, Yeimi (pronounced as Yaymee) Rivera became my legal warriors. Medical malpractice suits move at a glacial pace. I have been told that I was lucky to have it settled in about a year and a half. I kid you not, Brady and Yeimi truly earned their fees. Hell, they put up with my temper tantrums, cursing rants, and finally my tears of gratitude when my case was finally settled. No one wants to be involved in a medical malpractice suit, but if and when you come to that junction, do yourselves a favor and contact Van Wey Law. Let them know that Blanca sent ya!PS - Because of their dedication and work ethic, the law firm has recently expanded the staff and added another partner. Congrats to them!

About Dallas Medical Malpractice Law

A Dallas medical professional should never cause you harm while treating you for an illness or an injury. Unfortunately, medical negligence occurs frequently. Whether you sustained injuries during treatment with a doctor, an osteopath, a dentist or any other medical professional, they or their insurance carriers should pay for the damages they cause.

Physicians rarely acknowledge that they caused an injury and their negligence is often difficult to prove. If a doctor chooses to report an adverse event to their malpractice carrier, the doctor often retains settlement approval rights. Resolving a medical injury claim requires legal knowledge and malpractice experience. It’s important to consult with a Dallas medical malpractice lawyer as soon as you suspect your doctor has committed a negligent act. You should never try to resolve your claim on your own.

Medical Negligence is Common but Under-reported

Negligence, malpractice, and error are often used interchangeably when addressing physician-caused harm. Medical events occur frequently, and they happen under a variety of circumstances.

Surgeons commit errors during surgery and perform unnecessary operations. Physicians misdiagnose or fail to diagnose medical conditions, so they sometimes treat an illness the patient doesn’t have. An obstetrician’s actions or failure to act often cause brain injury when a newborn suffers from oxygen deprivation during delivery. Doctors prescribe the wrong medications and pharmacists improperly dispense the wrong doses. These and many other negligent medical acts cause harm and sometimes death.

A 2016 Johns Hopkins medical error study, explains why medical errors go undetected, undocumented, or unchallenged. When a team of researchers studied death certificates, they found that medical errors occurred frequently but were often undocumented as errors. The Johns Hopkins team determined that 250,000 deaths per year occurred because of a physician’s or a medical professional’s error.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention documents deaths nationwide. The information is inaccurate because the official death certificate submission form doesn’t include a “medical error” classification as a cause of death. The form requires a description of the “immediate illness” and the “underlying illness.” There’s no guidance for documenting deaths caused by medical negligence or inappropriate care. Because of this reporting anomaly, tracking medical errors remains a complicated undertaking.
