Wisconsin Bad Drug Lawsuits & Wisconsin Defective Medical Device Cases

Wisconsin Bad Drug Lawsuits & Wisconsin Defective Medical Device Cases

Most patients rely on their doctor’s recommendation to use medical devices or take prescription medications to help in the treatment of injury, serious disease or ongoing medical condition. In addition, the patient relies on the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to approve only the medications and medical devices that have been deemed safe through clinical trials. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers rush their products to market in the hopes of generating profits before the product’s clinical trials have been fully assessed, which is often to the detriment of the patient.

Surviving family members and victims who have suffered serious injury usually have no other choice than to file a Wisconsin defective medical device case, medical malpractice claim, wrongful death suit, or Wisconsin bad drug lawsuit to seek the financial recovery they deserve. However, these personal injury cases are complex and often require a comprehensive understanding of state tort law. The links to resources below can help the victim and surviving family members take the first step in filing a claim for compensation.

State of Wisconsin Statute of Limitations

Wisconsin Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Provisions (Section 893.55)

Patients or surviving family member can file a claim against every party at fault for causing injury or premature death. These cases typically involve negligence, personal injury, product liability, intentional tort, medical malpractice and wrongful death. Potential plaintiffs attempting to file a lawsuit after the Wisconsin statute of limitations has expired have already forfeited their legal right to pursue compensation. Because of that, it is crucial to hire an attorney to ensure all necessary documentation is filed in the appropriate Wisconsin courthouse on time.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 3 Years “with Discovery Rule (1 year after discovery, whichever is later) but never more than 5 years. Minors must sue for personal injury from health care providers within 3 years of date of injury or 1 year from discovery or by age 10. Non-economic damages capped at $750,000.”
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
