April 3, 2013 – Identify the relevant types of damages and learn how they apply in your case with the State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® The Law of Damages in Wisconsin.
Written by a diverse group of Wisconsin attorneys, the book covers the full range of potential damages, including:
- Compensatory and punitive damages
- Damages for bodily and personal injuries
- Damages for injuries to property and contractual rights
- Third-party damages
The book also offers practical guidance on such topics as:
- Meeting evidentiary burdens

- Planning for taxation of damages awards

- Protecting your client’s interests in cases involving subrogation
- Petitions for supervisory relief
- Postdecision motions
The law is constantly evolving when it comes to issues like the made-whole doctrine, the collateral-source rule, and subrogation. The Wisconsin Supreme Court has addressed the interplay between these rules in several recent cases, identifying when the collateral-source rule allows a plaintiff to recover written-off medical expenses and when an agreement to arbitrate a subrogation claim can trump the operation of the made-whole rule. The January 2013 supplement to The Law of Damages in Wisconsin includes helpful analysis of these decisions, as well as discussions of other recent developments relating to damages awards.
