There are many different injuries that can occur as a result of a motor vehicle accident, but one of the most serious and lasing injuries can be a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Since the brain is one of the body’s most complex and essential organs, it is particularly susceptible to injury. A TBI can occur either when a person’s head strikes an object, such as a car window, or when a person’s head is suddenly jerked back and forth, such as in a whiplash injury. TBIs can range from a mild concussion to severe and permanent brain damage. Car accidents are the third largest source of severe TBI.
Getting immediate and thorough treatment is essential to recovering from a TBI. In some cases, the full extent of the damage from a concussion or TBI is unknown until days or even months following a motor vehicle accident. In some cases, the damage permanently affects the brain’s ability to properly function. Potential symptoms arising from a TBI may include memory loss, lack of concentration, vision loss, light sensitivity, balance difficulties, depression, anxiety, and aggressiveness. There is some research findings that TBIs may lead to epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease. While the effects of a TBI are not always immediately apparent, they are very real and can significantly impair an individual’s ability to function as he or she did prior to the accident.

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.
