Injuries resulting from accidents are an unfortunate reality in life.

The negligence of another party causes personal injury accidents, and they cover a wide range of cases. The majority of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, which include both vehicular accidents and those involving pedestrians. So if you were a driver or passenger in an automobile, or if you were struck crossing the street while on foot, you have suffered a personal injury. Premises liability cases are another type of personal injury accident. The accidents involving premises liability include: Falling or slipping on a wet floor, inadequate maintenance that cause an unsafe environment, defective and unsafe building conditions, or inadequate security that lacks proper lighting or other factors that discourage possible criminal activity. The Lawrence and Manhattan Personal Injury Attorneys at Mann, Wyatt & Rice also deal extensively with product liability claims. This is caused when defective products injure a consumer. The last major type of personal injury is assault and battery, which is a violent attack also known as “intentional torts.”
