I have written numerous blogs at our web site and responded to dozens of these type of messages concerning medical malpractice cases in the state of Wisconsin. It is next to impossible to win a medical malpractice case. 9/10 jury verdicts result in a verdict in favor of the doctor or hospital you are suing. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel did an excellent article on the difficulties of proceeding with medical malpractice in Wisconsin a year or so that you can google. If you feel strongly that you were harmed, you should consider getting all your medical records together and have them reviewed by a medical malpractice lawyer. If they feel there may be some substance to the case, they will refer the case to an outside medical consultant to determine if you have a viable 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 years from the date of the occurrrence would forever bar your claim. You mentioned "3 years" in your post, so you very well may already be beyond the time line to legally pursue the case.
