Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents are a part of American society, and they can be extremely frustrating, especially when the accident caused you property damage and potentially serious injuries. Even worse, you are not likely to have the opportunity to hold the driver responsible for your losses if police are unable to identify and apprehend the driver who caused your accident. As a result, it is essential that you contact law enforcement authorities and make a report following a hit-and-run accident if you have any hopes of finding the driver responsible for the accident. You also should file a crash report with the Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
In hit-and-run accidents, you may have some recourse under your own motor vehicle insurance policy. All Wisconsin drivers, and drivers in most states, are required to carry at a minimum level of uninsured motorist coverage. The minimum amount of coverage is $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident for bodily injury only, and $10,000 for property damage. In most cases, the uninsured motorist provisions in your insurance policy will cover your damages, including both medical expenses and lost income resulting from your injuries and property damages to repair or replace your vehicle. There are limited on uninsured motorist insurance policies, however, so it is possible that your damages may exceed your policy limits, such as when you are involved in a very serious accident.
Whether you have suffered injuries in a hit-and-run accident or another type of motor vehicle accident, we are here to help you through the process of finding the responsible party and holding him or her liable for your damages, or filing an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company. We are the Wisconsin vehicle accident lawyers to whom you always can turn if you or your loved one suffers serious injuries in a crash, whether it involves drunk driving, distracted driving, or another issue. No matter how complex or difficult your situation may be, the Madison injury attorneys of Boller & Vaughan are here to advocate on behalf of you and your family and hold negligent drivers responsible for any injuries that have occurred.

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.
