Lawsuit accuses doctor of medical malpractice

There are a variety of different reasons for a person in Wisconsin to undergo surgery. Regardless of the reason, each patient deserves to receive an acceptable standard of care. However, one out-of-state woman claims that her doctor failed to meet this standard in a recently filed medical malpractice lawsuit. His oversight, she claims, could have resulted in her death.

When can a hospital be held liable for medical malpractice?

No one is perfect and all humans make mistakes. While some mistakes, such as turning left instead of right, are seemingly innocuous, others can have serious consequences. For example, even the slightest misjudgment made by a medical care provider can have devastating consequences for a patient. While many people in Wisconsin know that they can file medical malpractice lawsuits against negligent medical care providers, many people are unaware that the hospitals employing the providers could also be held liable.

Woman claims medical malpractice led to additional surgery

There are hundreds of issues that might lead to the need to have a surgery. Those in Wisconsin who undergo such treatment are made aware of the potential risks of the procedures. While there are known risks with every surgery, a patient should feel safe from additional harm created by medical errors. One out-of-state woman, however, claims that medical malpractice caused her to require additional treatment.

1 killed, 1 injured in Wisconsin car accident

Unfortunately, police believe speed may have been a factor in a recent Wisconsin accident that killed one man and injured another.
