Kay Van Wey
Van Wey, Presby & Williams, PLLC
I’m Kay Van Wey, a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer and Patient Safety Advocate. My clients are everyday people who have been seriously injured by a healthcare provider, medical device, or prescription drug or involved in a life altering accident.
I am passionate about helping my clients. My team and I take a personalized, hands-on approach to helping our clients navigate the legal system and ultimately achieve the justice and compensation they deserve. I understand just how confusing the legal landscape is and how when you are injured or grieving it is difficult to understand the complexities and navigate through the legal maze.
In experiencing my own personal family tragedy in my late 30’s, I understand first-hand what it feels like to be a victim and go through the difficult process of healing and the road to justice. This is one of the primary reasons that I do this work.
My patient safety advocacy comes from my passion 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.
You may know me as one of the lawyers that prosecuted multiple civil cases against “Dr. Death.” I had the privilege of representing many of his victims. As I have always said and believed, most doctors are good doctors — and good people. But the system for how we identify, report, and stop bad doctors is failing patients. The tragedy of the Christopher Duntsch story is that so many patients were harmed before he could be stopped. This is just incomprehensible and unacceptable.
