Every personal injury case is different and involves a variety of facts and circumstances. Therefore, it is hard to make a generalized statement about how much a particular case is worth. A number of different factors impact the value of a personal injury claim. These factors include the following:
In addition to these types of damages, which generally are referred as to compensatory damages, an accident victim also may have personal injuries that result in damages. These injuries include things like pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Again, the nature and duration of your injuries will determine the amount of personal damages to which you are entitled. A permanent disability clearly will merit a higher damages amount than a temporary injury or inability to work.
Settlement amounts in a personal injury claim also may decrease if there is problem with the evidence or legalities in the case, which makes the case likely to be less successful if it would proceed to trial. Furthermore, if the injured victim is at fault to any degree for the accident that led to his or her own injuries, then his or her damages award will be reduced accordingly.

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.
