Ken Testimonial

Frank Crivello | 60 sec

I’m Ken

I had pain and numbness to my leg from bulging disks. Are you a football player or actor? No I was operated on by a seemingly reputable doctor. He operated on the wrong side of my back. While digging around he did substantial nerve damage. I now have permanent pain and numbness in both legs. A big advertising Wisconsin law firm wasn’t interested in my case. I’m Frank Crivello of the Warshafsky Personal Injury Firm. After being rejected Ken turned to us. Doctor and attorney Werner Reis helped to discover the surgeon operated on the wrong side and misrepresented what he did, billing Ken’s health insurance for a procedure that wasn’t actually performed. Utilizing unique resources and skills Warshafsky achieved a 2.9 Million Dollar Settlement by preparing Ken’s case to win at trial and Warshafsky was instrumental in making sure that shameless doctor won’t hurt anyone else. Warshafsky is a great law firm.

Milwaukee Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Getting the Most Money From Negligent Doctors and Their Insurers.

medical malpratice injuryWe all trust our healthcare providers to take care of us and our families. Unfortunately, things sometimes go wrong. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pharmacists, dentists, hospital staff and other healthcare professionals can and do make mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes are minor, sometimes they result in serious injuries, permanent disabilities and even death.

When trust in a healthcare provider is broken, there must be consequences. Victims must be made as whole as possible. Ultimately, money is the only compensation that can assuage even a tiny piece of the suffering caused by a doctor who has injured a patient. Our guarantee to you: Warshafsky WILL get you the largest judgment or settlement possible.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

Our medical malpractice attorneys will put unparalleled skills to work in determining how a medical injury occurred, who is at fault and who is going to pay. We have more than 60 years of experience providing medical malpractice legal services. Our team even boasts an in-house attorney who is also a board-certified physician. Having someone with this level of expertise in the medical field makes Warshafsky Law Firm uniquely qualified to not only assess the validity of a medical malpractice claim but to also anticipate the opposing side’s defense.

We have all heard the stories of a doctor looking at an X-ray upside down and cutting off the wrong limb, or of people who come in for routine surgical treatment and end up with a crippling injury or deadly infection. Or perhaps you’ve read of cases where doctors prescribe medicines that cannot be taken together. As patients, we have little choice but to place our trust in medical professionals. Yet in some cases, doctors will misdiagnose breast cancer when it could have been prevented. Our Racine breast cancer lawyers will not stand for this. When a doctor destroys life through negligence, however, it is time to put your trust in Warshafsky Law Firm.

Establishing Medical Malpractice: The Five Elements of Negligence

A successful claim of medical malpractice will establish all five elements of negligence:

A Legal Duty was Owed

Legal Duty Owed to Patient

By treating or attempting to treat you, doctors and other medical professionals owe you a legal duty.

This Duty was Breached

Medical Malpractice Breach of Duty

Your caregiver did not provide the required treatment, or they treated you improperly.

This Breach Injured You

Injury from Medical Malpractice

This failure to provide proper care is the cause of an injury inflicted on you.

Standards were Violated

Medical Standards Violation

Your doctor or other medical professional caused the injury by ignoring or failing to follow medical standards.

You Were Harmed

These people hurt you.
The Warshafsky Law Firm will make them pay.

The Warshafsky Difference: Looking Out For Your Best Interests

When people choose their Wisconsin personal injury lawyer based on the endorsement of a football player or actor, they risk choosing an attorney who has never won more money in a courtroom. Settlement mills forward your paperwork and take a cut of your damages.

Hundreds of times we have prepared cases like yours beyond the brink of trial. Facing unlimited liability AND an expensive jury trial, insurance companies fess up what your case is worth. They HATE when you choose Warshafsky. Insurance companies know: it IS about the money.

Unlike other Milwaukee personal injury attorneys, Warshafsky Law has a far more expansive understanding of what is involved in bringing a case to conclusion. Where other medical malpractice lawyers treat their clients like assembly-line items, shuffling them towards the fastest and easiest settlements, Warshafsky stands alone in taking a comprehensive approach to building a case that will win in litigation and appeal. Because we do not charge a single penny until either a settlement or judgment is received, our success is tied entirely to yours. It should go without saying, but a good Milwaukee personal injury attorney always acts in the best interests of the client.

How much money will I get for medical malpractice in Wisconsin?

The average out-of-court settlement for a medical malpractice lawsuit is roughly $425,000. The average jury award is now over $1 million. However, in Wisconsin, lawmakers have put a $750,000 cap on medical malpractice awards. The amount of the damages awarded should be enough to make the injured person “whole,” covering any losses suffered. The award is calculated based on economic damages, such as: - medical expenses - lost wages - diminished earning capacity plus non-economic damages, such as: - pain and suffering - emotional trauma - loss of enjoyment and increased anxiety. Punitive damages may be awarded where a medical practitioner acted with reckless disregard in the face of known risks.

Do most medical malpractice cases go to trial?

Most medical malpractice cases do not go to trial. Over 95% of medical malpractice claims end in out-of-court settlements. A settlement gives plaintiffs their award earlier, and there’s no risk of losing at trial. Don’t let this happen to your case. Cases that go to trial almost always result in more compensation for the defendant. Talk to an experienced personal injury attorney to maximize your settlement.

How do you value a medical malpractice claim?

To value a medical malpractice claim, the expected jury verdict is multiplied by the likelihood of the plaintiff winning at trial. The worry of negative publicity and costs of litigation are also factored into the settlement. Publicity concerns are a major factor for hospitals and will help determine the value of a case.
