Medical malpractice cases are nearly impossible to pursue and win in Wisconsin anymore. There are many reasons for it. I wrote a blog at our law firm's web site on this very topic. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel did  an article as well about a year or so ago that you can google and read. If you feel strongly that you were harmed, gather up all of your medical records and sit down with a medical malpractice lawyer to see if you have a case. If they think you have a viable claim, they will hire an outside medical consultant to review the records to determine if you have a case. The statute of limitations is THREE years in Wisconsin to sue for malpractice from the date of the occurrence. Faillure to file a lawsuit within three years, would forever bar the claim.
