Experienced Legal Representation for Washington DC, Maryland & Virginia Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

The lasting effects from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating, not only to a brain injury survivor - but to their wife or husband, parent, child, companion or caregiver.  

Even a mild traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, can permanently affect your life, making work or school difficult, damaging your personal relationships, and perhaps requiring long-term care and treatment.

The feeling of despair following a brain injury, and the shock at the loss of your life as you once knew it may be overwhelming.

Memory problems, anxiety, fatigue, headache, depression, sleep disorders, and impaired thinking and judgment are all common following a traumatic brain injury.   

You may be wondering how you are going to pay your medical bills, or how you will support yourself and your family, if you can't return to work. Your family and loved ones may be wondering what is going to happen to the person they know and love. 

Whether you are a survivor of a traumatic brain injury, or a spouse, parent, child, caregiver or guardian of someone who has suffered a head or brain injury, you need to be informed about your rights.

A Team of Experts, Fighting for You

Through his many years of practicing law, Paul Zukerberg has developed the experience, resources and experts needed to get results for his clients. 

Paul consults with physicians and other medical experts who understand brain injury, and are skilled in effectively presenting their findings to a jury. Expert neurologists, psychologists and rehabilitation specialists are involved as the case requires, to ensure that his clients are properly evaluated, and that the extent of their injuries are fully understood by the client, the client's family, and most importantly, the jury. 

You probably didn't know much about brain injuries until you, or someone you love, suffered a TBI. Juries don't either. Not just a trial lawyer, Paul is an teacher, who takes the time to educate judges and juries about the devastating effects a brain injury can have on a person and their family. 

Paul can call upon a national team of private investigators, including former police detectives, internet search investigators, traffic accident reconstuctionists, biomechanical engineers, toxicologists, and educational and learning specialists to properly investigate and develop your case. 

Access to highly skilled specialists, experts, and investigators is crucial to the success of your case. As they say in law, there is a big difference between what you know and what you can prove. If your injury was caused by the negligence of another person, Paul will prove it.

How much does it cost to hire Paul for your case? You pay nothing in legal fees unless Paul wins your case.

If you have suffered a serious brain injury, or other serious personal injury, experienced experts will review your case to determine the type of care and rehabilitation you or your loved one needs, and can create a Life Care Plan that will meet those needs, every day for the rest of your life. Paul wins high settlements and verdicts for his clients.

Juries need to understand that brain injury is not just a one-time event, but a life-long disability, which needs to be carefully managed. Funding a successful Life Care Plan requires a substantial recovery from the people who caused your injury. You need an experienced trial lawyer to assure that you receive the financial recovery you need and deserve.

Through 25 years of advocacy, Paul has worked to increase understanding and awareness of brain injury, and the lasting harm done to individuals and their families. TBI patients can have difficulties in many areas of functioning, including family, interpersonal relations, school or work. Many suffer extreme personality changes.

You are Not Alone

When brain injury strikes, just surviving day-to-day can be an ordeal. Paul's law firm handles every aspect of brain injury litigation, including establishing trusts and guardianships, and securing insurance, disability and social security benefits. He and his staff are focused on meeting the immediate and long term needs of brain injury survivors.

Unfortunately, Paul, like many attorneys, can only accept a small percentage of the cases he is asked to review. But he does personally participate in every case that he does accept, and his office door, and personal telephone line, are always open to his clients and their families.
