Report says Zimmerman had broken nose, black eyes, gashes on head after shooting Martin

SANFORD, Fla. - There's new evidence regarding the extent of George Zimmerman's injuries from the February night he shot Trayvon Martin.

For the first time a medical report exclusively obtained by ABC News reveals the full extent of George Zimmerman's injuries after the deadly confrontation with Trayvon Martin.

The report reveals a broken nose, two black eyes, and gashes on the back of his head.

This comes from the doctor who treated Zimmerman the morning after the shooting of Martin.

Zimmerman claims Martin attacked him that night and that he only shot the unarmed 17-year-old because he feared for his own life as martin bashed his head into the concrete.

The report also reveals Zimmerman told his doctor he suffered from nausea when thinking about the shooting.

He said it was imperative that Zimmerman see a psychologist.

An attorney for the Martin family has reacted to the news.

"What we do know is that on February 26th the person there didn't believe his injuries were significant enough for him to go to the hospital," said Ben Crump. "They didn't even put a band-aid on his head.  Let's not forget that Trayvon Martin was fighting a man with a 9 millimeter gun."

Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder.

He has pleaded not guilty saying he acted in self defense.
