An unfortunate aspect of life are accidents that result in injuries. No matter what careful precautions we may take to shelter ourselves, there are times when there’s nothing we can do to prevent personal injury in our professional or personal lives.

The types of personal injury accidents cover a wide spectrum, but they have one thing common — they are caused by negligence of another party. One major type of personal injury accident are “premises liability cases.” These injuries include: defective and unsafe building conditions, slipping or falling on a wet floor, inadequate maintenance that cause an unsafe environment, or insufficient security that fails to discourage possible criminal activity (i.e. lack of proper lighting, cameras, visible security guards). The majority of personal injury claims involve road traffic accidents. This includes vehicular accidents, as well as those involving pedestrians. If you were injured as a driver or passenger, or if you were a pedestrian hurt while crossing the street by a vehicle, you have suffered a personal injury. The Dodge City Personal Injury Attorneys at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksleyare experts at handling product liability claims.

Another major type of personal injury are “intentional torts,” which is legalese for “assault and battery.”
