The cause of your Madison motorcycle accident is the foundation of your case. Many motorcycle accident victims have no memory of the crash or what led to the crash due to the nature of their injuries. Witnesses, jury members, and others involved have a tendency to assume that bikers are to blame for their accidents because they believe that bikers are reckless in general. The truth is that the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is violation of the biker’s right of way by another driver. Our Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case to determine and prove the true cause of your accident.
Drivers have a responsibility to look for motorcycles, but the all-too-common claim that drivers make after an accident is that they did not see the motorcycle. A very common scenario is a car making a left-hand turn into the bike’s path.
In a study conducted by the University of Southern California and paid for by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) three-fourths of motorcycle accidents were multi-vehicle accidents and two-thirds of those accidents were caused by drivers who violated the motorcyclists’ right of way.
A motorcycle defect can easily lead to a crash. Some defects cause motorcycle accident injuries to be worse. Defects can include defective parts, faulty design, and faulty repairs. Some motorcycles have a defect which causes a front-end wobble at high speeds. Other examples of defects include:
Anyone with the most basic grasp of physics understands that motorcycles are more likely to be affected by seemingly minor roadway defects, such as potholes or sandy patches, than vehicles with four or more wheels. Other types of defects, such as lack of breakaway devices on signs or poles, can cause injuries to be more severe.

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.
