Your Life May Never Be the Same

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the normal function of the brain is disrupted by a physical blow to the head or a penetrating head injury. Blows to the body that cause the head to move rapidly back and forth can also cause TBI by striking the brain against the skull. In some cases, TBI is difficult to diagnose because the symptoms may not be noticeable until weeks or months after the initial trauma.

If you are seeking compensation for a brain injury from an accident that occurred months ago, you will need a skilled attorney to argue your case. You must be able to connect the injury to the accident, which requires significant medical evidence. The Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello has handled numerous brain injury claims. We know what judges and juries want to see in these cases. For a free consultation with our Nashville brain injuries attorneys, please call 800-391-4525 or contact us online.

The Medical Costs Will Be Enormous

TBI patients often need long-term medical treatment from specialists. This may include therapy and care from speech pathologists, physical therapists and neurologists. To cover the cost of the medical bills as well as lost income, you will need considerable financial compensation.

TBIs are classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the severity of neurological disruption or damage the brain suffers. Even a mild TBI can have a terrible effect on a person's life. People with mild TBI may appear to be unharmed until they begin to suffer mood disorders and personality changes. Additional symptoms may include headaches, confusion, dizziness, sleep disturbances and fatigue.

Moderate TBI can cause problems such as fatigue, persistent headaches, memory loss, dizziness, convulsions or seizures, nausea, impaired vision and loss of consciousness. A moderate TBI may also cause mood disorders and personality changes.

Severe TBI patients may exhibit the symptoms of moderate TBI as well as extremely impaired motor skills and speech. In the worst cases, severe TBI may result in pulmonary dysfunction, a vegetative state, coma or wrongful death.
