Medical malpractice lawsuits in Wisconsin

Psychiatric medical malpractice cases are complex and highly regulated. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience and in-depth knowledge of Wisconsin malpractice law to determine if you have a case and, if so, get you the monetary compensation you deserve.

If you’ve suffered due to cancer misdiagnosis, anesthesia errors, prescription mistakes, improper treatment, surgical errors, a missed diagnosis, or have otherwise been injured in a hospital, the responsible physician or medical facility owes you compensation. To prove any type of medical malpractice, our lawyers will show:

  • There was a doctor-patient relationship
  • The doctor was negligent
  • The negligence caused an injury
  • The injury caused specific harm or damages

Damages can include physical pain, psychological or emotional distress, medical expenses, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. In cases involving fatalities caused by negligence, our wrongful death attorneys will fight for the highest possible compensation.
