The value of your personal injury claim will vary dramatically based on the circumstances surrounding your case and the severity and duration of the injuries that you received. Simply put, not all cases are the same. The amount that a jury may award in one case is not always consistent with what a jury may award in another case. As a result, it is impossible for any personal injury attorney to do anything other than roughly estimate what your personal injury claim may be worth.
Another major factor that directly impacts the value of a personal injury claim is the strength of the evidence in your case. There is rarely a clear-cut personal injury claim; there is often a question about the extent of the negligence of the person who caused the accident, whether more than one individual bears any fault for the accident, and even if the person is responsible for the accident at all. With so many details and factors that can diminish the value of a personal injury claim, it is essential that you obtain the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney to help you determine the best avenue of relief in your case.
When any type of accident occurs as a result of someone’s negligence, and injuries result, the injured individual may have a claim for damages against the negligent person under Wisconsin law. The value of your claim, however, can vary substantially from one case to the next. The reality is that a multimillion dollar settlement of a personal injury case is rather rare, and constitutes only a tiny fraction of the many personal injury settlements that occur each year. Plus, very high personal injury settlements tend to be limited to cases with extremely severe and permanent injuries. In any case, you always should keep in mind that there are strict time limits on personal injury claims in the state of Wisconsin, and you can lose your right to compensation if you do not consult an experienced lawyer and take action prior to those time limits. You should never delay in contacting the Madison personal injury attorneys of Boller & Vaughan, and set up your free consultation today.

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.
