Racine and Kenosha Medical Negligence Attorneys
Doctors, dentists, nurses, nursing home workers and other health care providers are obligated by law and professional ethics to provide care according to accepted standards. That is all that is required of them: living up to accepted standards of care. When those standards are not met and an injury or death results, they can and should be held liable for damages.
The media falsely claim that frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits result in reducing the quality of care and driving honest, hard-working doctors and medical professionals out of the state and out of the medical business. This is absolutely untrue. The image of unscrupulous personal injury attorneys looking for a quick buck has been entirely manufactured by the public relations efforts of insurance companies seeking to minimize their financial exposure and maintain their profitability for shareholders.
The hard truth is that medical mistakes happen every day. Injured people have not only the legal right but also the urgent need to collect compensation. The solution politicians propose to deal with these contrived factors is legislation limiting damages - preventing those injured by bad doctors from getting just and fair compensation.
