Not all hospital deaths qualify as medical malpractice; however, medical malpractice is the leading cause of wrongful death in Wisconsin.
To file a Wisconsin medical malpractice claim, you must show that a medical professional or medical facility made a mistake or acted negligently and that your mother’s death was caused by that mistake or act. The best way to determine if you have a Wisconsin medical malpractice claim is to discuss your case with a Wisconsin injury lawyer with experience in medical malpractice claims. The attorney will be able to tell you if you qualify to file a Wisconsin medical malpractice lawsuit and if you qualify to receive compensation for your family’s loss.
Common types of medical malpractice claims in Wisconsin include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Misdiagnosis or wrong diagnosis
- Failure to treat
- Improper or unconventional treatment
- Failure to refer to a specialist
- Medication or pharmacy errors
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical mistakes and wrong side surgery
- Untreated infections
- Nursing home neglect
- Dental malpractice
- Chiropractic malpractice
- Physical or sexual abuse by a medical professional
