Medical Malpractice Eau Claire

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Eau Claire

We put our trust in healthcare providers to have our best interest at heart and take care of us when we are sick or hurt. However, sometimes that trust is broken and it can be life altering for those involved. Whether you have been misdiagnosed, given the wrong medicine or have been delayed in proper treatment, as a patient you have rights. If any healthcare provider has failed to meet the "standard of care" when treating you, you may have a medical malpractice case and may be entitled to compensation.

The Wisconsin laws governing malpractice actions change frequently, and exceptions often require a complex analysis of statutes and case law, and even then can be unclear. We encourage anyone injured by malpractice to contact an attorney promptly so your rights can be protected.

At GCW, we bring the fight, passion and dedication to all medical malpractice cases and we are ready for battle. Contact us today for a free consultation.

  • The cost of required medications, including over-the-counter pain relievers such as aspirin, Advil® and Tylenol®
  • The cost of help in your home, including nursing care and help with household chores
