Serious car crashes often result in significant injuries to the drivers and passengers of those vehicles, as well as to pedestrians and bicyclists in some cases. One of the more severe injuries that can result from a vehicle accident is a spinal cord injury. In fact, the number one cause of spinal cord injuries is vehicle crashes; 39% of all spinal cord injuries result from motor vehicle accidents.
Spinal cords run from the neck to the waist and are contained within the spinal columns. There are three levels to the spine: the cervical, the thoracic, and the lumbar. All spinal cord injuries involve damage to one or more of those three levels of the spine. Some individuals with spinal cord injuries are quadriplegic, which means that they are unable to move their arms and legs. Other individuals are paraplegic, which means that they cannot move their legs, but they can move their arms. Obviously, injuries such as these can have a devastating effect on an individual, and are likely to result in ongoing medical bills and treatment costs for duration of his or her life.
Due to the severity of a spinal cord injury, it is essential that you enlist the assistance of a personal injury attorney who has experience in handling these types of serious cases. You want someone who has specialized knowledge of spinal cord injuries and how they affect your everyday life. This will allow you to obtain the maximum amount of compensation available for your losses, which is important, given the fact that both your life and your family’s life are likely to be profoundly changed by 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.
