Nobody can plan for an accident. Injuries resulting from a serious accident are an unfortunate part of life that we can’t escape. No matter what precautions we may take to protect ourselves, sometimes there’s nothing we can do to avoid personal injury in our personal or professional lives.

Personal injury accidents cover a wide spectrum of cases. However, they are all the result of negligence by another party. Premises liability cases are a common type of personal injury which encompass: slipping or falling on a wet floor, defective and unsafe building conditions, insufficient maintenance that cause a hazardous environment, or inadequate security that lacks proper measures to defend against possible criminal activity (i.e. lack of proper lighting, cameras, visible security guards). The bulk of personal injury claims are related to road traffic accidents. This includes both injuries caused by vehicular accidents, as well as those involving pedestrians. You have suffered a possible personal injury whether you were a driver, passenger, or if you were hit crossing the street on foot. The professional Great Bend Personal Injury Attorneys at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley have decades of experience fighting product liability claims. This is a case when defective products injure consumers and the company who produced them is charged with negligence. A particularly violent type of personal injury is “intentional torts.” These are more commonly known as “assault and battery.”
