Medical Malpractice cases are practically extinct in Wisconsin. I wrote a blog at our firm's web site on the difficulty of pursuing a medical malpractice case in this state, and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel likewise, did an excellent essay on it in 2015 that you can google and read. The reasons are many faceted. However, if you feel strongly, that you were  medically harmed, you will need to gather all of your hospital and medical records relevant to the treatment and have them reviewed by a malpractice lawyer of your choice. If the attorney feels you have a viable claim, they will hire or consult with an outside medical expert to determine if there is a case. The statute of limitations is 3 years in the state of Wisconsin to sue for medical malpractice. Failure to file a lawsuit within 3 years from the date of the occurrence, will forever bar your claim.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
