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.
