Understanding Medical Malpractice in Wisconsin

Medical professionals are responsible for keeping patients healthy and safe. Although most of them try to do their utmost, some are reckless to the point of harming patients. Malpractice victims also contend with life-threatening injuries that can lead to death. In addition to the physical toll, victims may also experience financial and emotional distress. Those who have been injured by a medical practitioner can file a claim for medical malpractice in Wisconsin. Types of medical malpractice claims include surgical complications, misdiagnosis, incorrect medical prescriptions, or something else that is detrimental to the patient due to negligence on the part of the health care provider/practitioner.

Under Wisconsin law, you will be entitled to take legal action to recover damages from any treatment, procedure, or error of details by a healthcare professional that results in injury. It is important to remember that these claims can only result from malpractice on the part of medical personnel.

Victims of medical malpractice can bring claims against medical physicians and healthcare facilities. This includes the following:

  • Doctors
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Nurses
  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • Nursing homes 

We recognize that as a malpractice victim, you may have a lot of questions about your future case, including its importance. Although it may be difficult to answer the following question, our legal team will help find the answers.

Deadline to file a Medical Malpractice case in Wisconsin

The statute of limitations generally provides that victims of medical malpractice must file a claim within 3 years of the problem that led to the injury. The state, however, has a rule of discovery in place. This rule expands the period to sue in situations where the accident was not instantly discovered.

Dealing with the insurance companies

Many people blindly trust insurance providers to provide fair compensation. Insurance providers benefit from the coverage of victims of injuries. They're going to try to take benefit of you to get the lowest possible settlement. Your only defense is to avoid making any comments until you have an experienced Milwaukee personal injury attorney on your side. A successful personal injury attorney will discuss your case with an insurance company and, if appropriate, take your case to court.
