Gray Ritter Graham is here to help
If someone in your family suffered a serious head injury in a motorcycle crash, construction accident or bicycle-auto collision, your personal injury litigation team should investigate and assess the liability of every potential defendant in the case. Head injuries suffered while wearing a helmet might be the fault of the helmet manufacturer, as well as that of a negligent driver or property owner. The attorneys representing you should be just as capable of handling a product liability lawsuit as they are of handling a negligence claim against a driver or property owner.
