How should you plan for long-term care?

If you are an older Wisconsin resident, you may be thinking about health care options for yourself and/or your partner. If you sustain an injury from an accident or end up with a cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer's disease, you may end up needing long-term care. Even if you never end up requiring this type of health care, planning for it may provide you and your loved ones with peace of mind.

How to have a safe boating season

Boating is a favorite pastime for Wisconsin residents. With the snow melting and temperatures rising, boats will soon be filling our lakes again. After all, what’s better than spending a beautiful afternoon with friends and family on the water? While these days make for great memories, tragedy can strike if you don’t take proper care before heading out.

Is there a cap on medical malpractice damages?

If you have suffered harm due to the negligence of a health care provider, you have the right to seek monetary damages as compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. In Wisconsin, economic damages receive unlimited coverage from the malpractice compensation fund. However, according to the Washington Post, there is a $750,000 cap on payouts for noneconomic damages. Wisconsin is one of 31 states to have such a cap.
