Wisconsin medical malpractice attorney professionals help clients with medical malpractice claims that are often defined as the failure of a medical professional to follow the accepted standards of practice in his or her profession, resulting in harm to the patient. Proof of failure to comply with accepted standards of medical practice often requires the testimony of someone with expertise in the area of medical treatment and healthcare services. The Milwaukee medical malpractice lawyers professionals at Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are experienced with the medical expectations and professional standards of care as recognized by the state of Wisconsin.
Standards of care in Wisconsin are usually established by expert testimony on how similarly qualified medical practitioners would have managed the patient's care under the same or similar circumstances.
