The Journal of Patient Safety reports that medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Health care providers have a duty to maintain certain standards of treatment when caring for patients. If your loved one passed away due to care that fell below these medical standards, our Madison malpractice attorneys will investigate diligently and build an effective case on your family’s behalf.
Negligence at any step in the process of treating an illness or injury can have dire consequences, from misdiagnosis of a serious condition to the development of an infection after surgery. Depending on the nature of your case, the following parties could be held liable in a medical malpractice claim:
In addition to individual providers, hospitals can also be held liable either for their employees’ negligence (known as vicarious liability) or for endangering patients via poor hiring practices, not keeping accurate medical records, or failing to maintain a safe and sanitary environment, to name a few examples of malpractice.
If sub par medical treatment resulted in the death of someone you care about, our lawyers can launch a wrongful death action to hold the responsible parties accountable.

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.
