Brandon Johnson: Medical Negligence in Milwaukee
Attorneys at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. Holding Guilty Parties Accountable
Our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. had a major injustice on our hands. Brandon Johnson was admitted as a patient into the Milwaukee County Mental Health Complex in October 2012. While at the facility, Brandon Johnson repeatedly informed medical staff his body was immobile, and that he had a feeling that he was paralyzed. Every single cry for help was disregarded as a mental issue. The staff at the complex refused to have him checked for a physical cause to his paralysis.
Brandon Johnson Dies – No Charges Filed
Soon after his cries for help, Brandon Johnson suffered a pulmonary embolism, dying right there at the Milwaukee County Mental Health Complex. He was 25-years-old. No criminal charges were filed. The John Doe investigation held no one accountable.
- Several parties’ involvement should be considered, including:
- The personnel on duty and in the area at the time.
- Any managers or supervisors who were in charge of the areas where Brandon was held and denied help.
- Any government agencies or contractors which may have overseen the facility.
Were Brandon Johnson granted the medical attention he not only requested but was entitled to, he might still be alive.
Pursuing Justice for Brandon
Filing a civil lawsuit in cases such as these is always a legitimate possibility. Our lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. realize that, in this case and cases like it, justice should start at the federal level. Brandon Johnson was at the Milwaukee County Mental health facility in order to receive specific help, not to have his human rights violated.
