Medical malpractice lawyers in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Medical Malpractice Lawyers

We put a lot of trust in our health care providers, and most of the time it's valid. But doctors and nurses are human too, and sometimes make mistakes. They might give you the wrong medicine or the wrong dose, causing an adverse reaction. They might botch a procedure which causes further injury. Or they might miss a diagnosis, delaying critical treatment.

If you think you or someone you love was the victim of medical malpractice, we encourage you to contact a lawyer. Wisconsin's malpractice laws change often, so it's important to consult with knowledgeable attorneys. Here at Gingras, Cates & Wachs, our experience can help you get the compensation you deserve, including:

  • Past and future income lost
  • Past and future medical and other treatment expenses
  • 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
  • Mileage to and from treatment appointments
  • Compensation for your pain, suffering, disability, and/or disfigurement
  • If your parent or spouse was injured by malpractice, compensation for the loss of the patient's society and companionship.
