All too often, individuals hesitate to contact an attorney for any reason, out of fear of being unable to pay high fees that are simply beyond their financial means. Some people figure that since they can’t afford to pay several thousand dollars up front as a retainer, then they won’t be able to get assistance from a lawyer. Personal injury cases, however, are different. Most attorneys, including the Madison personal injury lawyers of Boller & Vaughan, take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. Simply put, this means that if you don’t get paid for your personal injury claim, then we don’t get paid attorney’s fees, either.
A contingency fee agreement typically does not require you to pay any attorney’s fees up front in order for the law firm to take on representation of you in your personal injury claim. Rather, a Wisconsin personal injury attorney will agree to represent you in exchange for a certain percentage of the compensation that you receive from your personal injury claim, whether it is through a settlement or a court trial. Therefore, if you do not recover any monetary damages on your claim, your attorney will not receive any attorney’s fees, and you will never have to pay any attorney’s fees.
You should be aware, however, from the beginning of your case, that there are some fees and costs associated with a personal injury case that you may have to pay. However, these costs are relatively low. Some examples of these types of fees are the filing fee that a court charges in order for you to file a personal injury lawsuit (or any other type of lawsuit) and costs from a hospital or medical provider in order to get copies of your medical records that relate to your injuries.

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.
