1 killed, 3 injured in Wisconsin car accident

Even in the best of conditions, driving can be complicated. When the weather is perfect and there are no distractions in a vehicle, a car accident could still happen. As a result, it is especially important that when weather conditions are less than ideal, additional attention is paid. Unfortunately, one Wisconsin man recently lost his life in a car accident believed to have been caused by another driver who failed to stop for a stop sign.

Medical malpractice allegedly leads to amputations

Patients in Wisconsin must have a high degree of trust in regard to their medical care providers and medical treatment.

One woman has recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging that negligence on the part of her medical care providers resulted in multiple amputations.

Medical malpractice could lead to birth injury

Thanks to the advances in medicine over the course of the last 50 years, babies are safely born to women in Wisconsin every day.

However, many others in Wisconsin know that a surgery or test that is considered routine can turn into anything but if proper protocols are not followed throughout the procedure. One woman has filed a medical malpractice claim stating that her husband is now in a persistent vegetative state after undergoing what should have been a routine colonoscopy and endoscopy.
