First off, I am sorry to hear about what happened to your husband. Secondly, you need to be aware of the statute of limitations; this incident happened in November 2014. The statute of limitations in WI for suing for medical malpractice is 3 years from the date of the occurrence. You are quickly closing in on that 3 year time line. Failure to file the lawsuit within the three years will forever bar the claim. The first thing you need to do is gather up all of his medical and hospital records as soon as possible. The rules of lawyers.com do not allow us to make a referral for you or recommend our own services. Check the lawyer guide here. Other good sources are the best lawyers in America or Super Lawyers which ranks the best lawyers nationwide by specialty. Once you have the records together, the lawyer you select will review them and also have them reviewed by an outside medical consultant to determine if you have a viable case. Medical malpractice cases are exceedingly difficult to pursue and win in Wisconsin, so it is not going to be easy for you to locate an attorney who may be willing to pursue the case for you.
