The attorneys at Grossman & Moore have extensive experience representing individuals who have sustained brain injuries. Most of these individuals sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of a car or truck wreck. Others sustain a brain injury resulting from a motorcycle wreck or bicycle accident. Often cars do not see motorcyclists or bicyclists and the cyclists are thrown from their motorcycle or bicycle. We understand that brain injuries affect people differently. Some of our clients have difficulty in social situations whereas others cannot function in their jobs anymore and depend upon others to take care of their personal needs. We strive to make sure they are compensated for their severe loss. Please contact us today for your free consultation.
