Doctors avoid medical malpractice through dishonesty?

In Elkhorn and throughout Wisconsin, having a relationship with your doctor requires a certain amount of trust. After all, they are privy to confidential and sometimes embarrassing medical information about all of their patients. But what if your doctor was not completely honest with you or withheld important misdiagnosis information to avoid doling out a hard truth or to avoid a lawsuit? A recent study found that doctors sometimes avoid telling their patients the truth, sometimes to avoid medical malpractice suits.

Car accident haunts Elkhorn mother

An Elkhorn, Wisconsin mother is trying to pick up the pieces after being injured in a drunk driving car accident that occurred on Jan. 25 on North Washington Street. A 50-year-old man previously convicted of drunk driving on multiple occasions is accused of striking the woman's 2002 Dodge Intrepid after he was released from a local jail on another drunk driving charge. He is a felon who was just arrested on Jan. 23 for his fifth DWI offense. Freed on $1,500 cash bail within 24 hours, he was again arrested for causing the collision on Jan. 25.

That is why officials and family members of victims are trying to shine a light on the importance of concentrating on the road while driving.
