No malpractice lawyer will take Wisconsin baby death case

Harper Streblow died 10 days after she was born following an emergency Caesarean section — a procedure that was performed about 30 minutes after serious medical problems were detected by hospital nurses.

Her parents have questions about what went wrong. But they will never know if any negligence or malpractice was involved. The Wisconsin court system is effectively closed to them.

Three lawyers rejected their case. One said he simply will not take infant death cases in Wisconsin because a state law capping damages at $500,000 makes it financially unfeasible for him to do so. The two others said the cap affected their decision to reject it, noting other questions about the case and whether they could win.
