Failing to plan for long-term care can have disastrous results. If you unexpectedly need long-term care, you may have to exhaust all of your available resources and then rely on government assistance to pay for it. The costs of long-term care are not cheap. Not only could you lose all of the assets that you have worked so hard for throughout your life, but you may have no inheritance to leave your children following your death. If you prepare well in advance of your need for long-term care, however, you may be able to safeguard some or all of your assets and provide for a spouse who remains at home, if necessary.
Long-term care financial planning is very different from one case to the other, and depends entirely of the facts and circumstances involved in your situation. It is crucial that you get the advice of an experienced long-term care planning attorney who actively practices in the state of Wisconsin and can help you strategize and implement a plan that is best designed to meet your goals and needs. We are here to meet with you and outline your objectives in a manner that will allow you to become aware of all of your options and make informed decisions that are in your best interests.
Aside from planning for the costs of long-term care, you also need to be aware of the potential abuse and neglect of seniors that may exist in various senior living facilities nationwide. If your loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at the hands of a caretaker, whether in a home health care setting, nursing home, or other healthcare facility, you may have a valid personal injury claim. This type of situation makes it essential to contact an experienced Wisconsin neglect and abuse attorney in order to protect your rights and obtain the financial relief that you deserve. Certain individuals have an obligation under the law to report suspected abuse or neglect of an elderly individual or nursing home or other facility resident. Those who fail to do so must face the consequences of their actions. Hold negligent Wisconsin care providers responsible for their actions.

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
