Medical malpractice suit claims injection led to paralysis

There are many people in Wisconsin who suffer from neck and shoulder pain. As a result, they seek treatments in order to receive some degree of relief.  However, one out-of-state woman claims in a medical malpractice lawsuit that her treatment actually worsened her condition.

Charges filed after alleged drunk driving accident in Wisconsin

Most people are aware of the potential consequences of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, people in Wisconsin still make the risky decision to drink and drive. For example, police believe that alcohol was a factor in a recent accident that injured nine people.

Driver in custody after Wisconsin drunk driving car accident

The vast majority of people in Wisconsin likely cannot fathom intentionally causing harm to another human being. If accidental harm were caused, the idea of leaving a person to suffer without providing aid would seem cruel and heartless.

Wisconsin Tree Stand Accidents: Are Landowners Liable?

Wisconsin's deer hunting season begins this Saturday. This means that thousands of Wisconsin hunters will be climbing into tree stands in hopes of getting their next big buck. Although hunting season is meant to be a time to enjoy nature and the company of one's hunting buddies, accidents can and do occur. Last year, a 71-year-old hunter died in Vernon County after falling from his tree stand. Tree stand accidents like this are not uncommon. According to a Wisconsin DNR report, "[o]ne in every three hunters who hunt from a tree stand will fall at some point in their hunting career."

The role of misdiagnoses in medical malpractice

Not long ago, people in Wisconsin and across the world were engrossed with the Ebola virus -- an issue that came very close to home for Americans who watched on the news as several people within their borders began to suffer from the virus. Perhaps most strikingly is the story of the man who sought treatment for the virus at an emergency room, but was sent home with antibiotics as a result of a misdiagnosis. Unfortunately, this form of medical malpractice happens frequently, but some say that it often does not receive the attention that it deserves. A study set to publish soon in the U.S. Institute of Medicine could hopefully provide some insight into this prevalent issue.
