Top 7 Reasons to Sue for Medical Malpractice in Wisconsin
Reasons to Sue for Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, can have devastating consequences for patients. From a surgeon leaving a sponge inside a patient to a nurse administering the wrong dosage of medication, medical professionals who are negligent can cause lasting damage and harm to those they are supposed to help. If you choose to sue the doctor for medical malpractice, our personal injury lawyers will gather the evidence needed to get you the greatest possible compensation.
At Warshafsky Law, we’re not afraid to go up against the big opponents to get you the compensation you deserve for any kind of medical malpractice, including:
- Hospital Negligence and Emergency Room Malpractice
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis
- Prescription Medication Errors
- Anesthesia Errors
- Medical Negligence affecting Pregnancy and Childbirth
- Dentist and Orthodontist Malpractice
- Surgical Errors and Malpractice
However, medical malpractice does not include every tiny mistake, every unsuccessful treatment, and every unhappy patient. Since every patient is different, they and their illnesses respond differently to treatments. There is always a risk of complications when it comes to medicine and medical care. Poor results of treatment or surgery – even death – do not always mean medical malpractice occurred. In some cases, a physician can do everything right and still have a poor result.
In order to prove medical malpractice occurred, our personal injury lawyers must be able to prove the doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical professional did not provide the appropriate standard of care, and that negligence caused harm to the patient. An expert witness must testify to what a typically skilled, competent doctor would have done and what the accused doctor did wrong. The physician’s care does not have to be perfect, but it must be reasonably careful and skillful.
