Serious auto accidents often result in internal injuries to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. The most common types of internal injuries include broken ribs, ruptured spleens, ruptures in the abdomen, generalized internal bleeding, and ruptures to other internal organs. The cause of these internal injuries typically is blunt force trauma resulting from the impact of the accident. Blunt force trauma can occur when there is a direct blow or impact to the body with another object, or when a sudden decrease in speed causes a similar impact. Objects also may penetrate the body of an accident victim, which can cause internal bleeding.
These types of injuries can be extremely serious, and it may take months before you can return to work or school. The most serious internal injuries may even be fatal in some cases. Depending on the type of internal injuries involved, surgery may be necessary. There also may be an extensive recovery period that may involve therapy or rehabilitation.
Internal injuries may not appear right away. It may take days before internal injuries come to light, which can be in the form of an obstruction, abscess, or unexplained bleeding. As a result, you should be aware of the possibility for injuries that aren’t apparent immediately following an accident in which you have been involved. Some common symptoms of internal injuries include the following:
· Abdominal pain or tenderness
· Bruising or swelling
· Difficulties with urination or bowel function
· Temperature or blood pressure changes
· Nausea and vomiting

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.
