Medical Malpractice Crisis is a Myth
The medical malpractice crisis in Wisconsin is a myth. IN 2020, there were only 122 medical malpractice suits filed which is down from 146 suits filed in 2019. This resulted in a 16.4% decline and is the lowest number of suit filed in a decade.
A patient injured due the negligence of a health care professional faces an uphill climb. Over time, the lobbyists for doctors have helped place many hurdles in the way of injured patients seeking just compensation. One of the recent hurdles put in place was the "I am Sorry" legislation. When recent legislation is also coupled with limitations to recovery, a medical malpractice case can be a daunting task.
