A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden force jars or impacts the brain—such as a blow to the head or an object penetrating the skull—and disrupts normal brain function.
TBIs are often life-changing injuries that require long-term care, and they are frequently fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 30 percent of all injury deaths in the United States are the result of TBIs.
The Madison personal injury lawyers at Boller & Vaughan understand the physical, emotional and financial hardships associated with traumatic brain injuries. That’s why we fight hard to recover the money Wisconsin TBI victims and their families need to move forward with their lives.

TBIs are also a frequent byproduct of physical violence. Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to the effects of traumatic brain injuries.
In comparatively “mild” brain injuries, such as concussions, full recovery may be possible. But TBIs often result in long-term or permanent complications, which may include but are not limited to:
Severe brain injuries may result in a vegetative state or death.

Common signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:
If you or a loved one suffered trauma to the head, it’s advisable to seek medical attention as soon as possible even if symptoms are not instantly apparent.
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.
TBIs can be financially devastating to victims and their families. The lifetime costs of TBI treatment often run upward of $1 million, according to data from the CDC.
