The United States Constitution guarantees you the right to represent yourself in a legal dispute. It is no secret that insurance companies and their lawyers prefer it when injured people try to represent themselves.
People who are unfamiliar with the law often do not understand the actual value of their claims and fail to get fairly compensated when they negotiate directly with insurance companies or represent themselves in court.
Choosing a Madison injury lawyer, however, can be a bewildering experience. The law is becoming increasingly specialized and having the right Wisconsin personal injury lawyer can make a big difference in how your case is handled and how you feel at the end of your case.
Here is a list of basic questions that you should ask any accident lawyer that you are thinking about hiring. If you have an injury claim, call us and ask these and any other questions you have. You will find Boller & Vaughan has the right lawyers for anyone who has been injured.
- What is your experience in this field of law?
- Have you handled matters similar to mine?
- What are the possible outcomes of my case?
- What are my alternatives in resolving the matter?
- Are you willing and able to take my case to trial if necessary?
- Approximately how long will it take to resolve?
- What do you charge, and how are fees and expenses billed?
- Will you keep me informed of the progress of my case?
- Will there be people besides a lawyer working on my case?
The injury lawyers of Boller & Vaughan have over 15 years of experience representing personal injury victims in Wisconsin.
In Wisconsin, as with the rest of the country, at least 95 percent of all personal injury cases settle before trial. We also settle most of our cases out of court, but we prepare thoroughly for each case and we choose our cases carefully after evaluating their merits.
We have the resources and ability to fight the insurance company as long as it takes to get the results that you need and deserve. Where many injury lawyers are intimidated by the idea of taking a case to trial we are always willing and able to do so.
Our Madison injury lawyers take the time to get to know you personally in a comfortable setting, either in our office or in your home or hospital room if needed. By getting to know you and how your injuries have affected you and your family, we can present a stronger case to the jury.
As your case progresses, we will call you at least once a month, just to check in and make sure you are up-to-date on the progress of your case.
If you wish to read more about the settlement process, we would refer you to the article “Settlement Strategy” by Barbara J. Gilbert, Esquire.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, please contact the Madison injury lawyers of Boller & Vaughan at (608) 268-0268 or submit an online questionnaire. Your initial consultation with our attorneys is free of charge and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds.
