Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Without a Lawyer: Not an Easy Task

This Wisconsin opinion barring Plaintiff’s claim on the statute of limitations underscores a pretty obvious point: it is virtually impossible to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit unless you are a medical malpractice lawyer. There are just too many hoops to jump through that you can’t anticipate. This is obvious when it comes to pro se plaintiffs but so many lawyers who have never handled a malpractice claim get what appears to be a good malpractice case and they quickly learn that they cannot handle the case on their own.
