Personal injury cases that stem from a Wisconsin motor vehicle accident can be very complex, involving medical records, police reports, driving records, multiple insurance companies, and more. Choosing an attorney who is trained and experienced in handling personal injury cases can be essential to your ability to get a full recovery in your car accident case. With the number of personal injury attorneys available, however, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right one. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps that you can take in order to choose the personal injury attorney that is best for your case.
First, make a list of the attorneys who advertise that they primarily practice personal injury law. You will want an attorney to represent your interests who handles these types of cases on a daily basis as a major part of his or her practice. Too many attorneys hold themselves out as personal injury attorneys, when they really handle only a few personal injury cases here and there among the other types of cases in their practices. You also should speak with others you might know who have been involved in car accidents that led to personal injury cases. Personal referrals are a good way to determine whether a particular attorney will be suitable for your case.
Next, take the time to interview prospective personal injury attorneys. Different lawyers have different personalities and different ways of doing things, some of which may be more appealing to you than others. Since you will be discussing personal issues and making major decisions with the help of this attorney, you will want to choose someone with whom you are comfortable. If you don’t feel like you can talk to the attorney or are uncomfortable in his or her presence, then he or she is probably not the attorney for you.
If you or a loved one suffers serious or fatal injuries in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the party or parties who are responsible for the accident that led to those injuries. In order to develop your claim for damages, we must determine which party or entity was at fault for the accident, acted in a negligent or reckless manner, or otherwise acted in a manner that caused death or injury to your loved one. At Boller & Vaughan, our Madison personal injury lawyers can help you with this inquiry and carefully guide you through any personal injury or wrongful death claims that you may have against various responsible parties.

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.
