Brain injuries are some of the most serious and life-altering injuries, affecting not only victims but their loved ones and family members as well. Once-simple tasks, like getting dressed or holding a conversation, can pose significant challenges, and brain injury victims may find that they must learn to cope with the permanent and irreversible effects of their injury.
At Nance Cacciatore, we recognize the unique difficulties traumatic brain injury victims and their families face. Since 1963, we have been fighting for injured individuals throughout Florida and have secured millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients.
We understand the physical, emotional, and financial hardships associated with catastrophic injuries and are here to help you fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
Brain injuries are generally classified as one of two types: closed-head or open-head injuries. A closed-head injury occurs when there is no physical damage to the scalp or skull; an open-head injury involves a wound, fracture, or other damage to the skull, scalp, or head. Both closed- and open-head injuries can lead to serious brain injuries and lasting damage.
Some common types of closed-head brain injuries include:

Victims of traumatic brain injuries, also known as TBIs, may require months, years, or even a lifetime of care. Treatment may involve multiple surgeries, cognitive rehabilitation, medication, and more.
