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.

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis or wrong diagnosis
