Medical Malpractice cases are nearly impossible to pursue and win in Wisconsin. There is a multitude of reasons for it. I wrote a blog about it at our law firm's web site last year under personal injury issues. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel in 2015 also wrote an excellent essay about spelling out the death of medical malpractice cases in Wisconsin. If you feel strongly that you  there was negligence and you you were harmed as a result, obtain copies of all of your pertinent medical and hospital records and have them reviewed by a malpractice lawyer. If the lawyer thinks you have  viable case, they will hire an outside medical expert to review the records to determine if you have a case. The statute of limitations in Wisconsin for suing for medical malpractice is three years from the date of the occurrence. Failure to file the lawsuit within 3 three from the date of the occurrence will forever bar the claim.

If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries under your state's medical malpractice and personal injury laws. Medical malpractice claims can arise from a doctor's failure to diagnose a health condition, misdiagnosis, medication error, negligent behavior or mistake during childbirth that causes birth defects. Medical malpractice attorneys can review your medical records and help determine whether your have grounds for a lawsuit. If appropriate, your lawyers can file a lawsuit, attempt to negotiate a settlement on your behalf and represent you during trial, if a settlement can't be reached.
