Accidents that result in injuries are an unfortunate part of life. No matter what precautions we may take to safeguard ourselves, sometimes there’s just nothing we can do to avoid personal injury in our professional or personal lives.

Personal injury accidents are caused by the negligence of another party and cover a wide spectrum of cases. Road traffic accidents make-up the majority of personal injury claims. This doesn’t only include vehicular accidents, but also those involving pedestrians. If you were a driver or passenger in an auto accident, or if you were hit crossing the street by a vehicle; you have suffered a personal injury. Another type of personal injury accident involves premises liability cases. These injuries may be caused by: slipping or falling on a wet floor, defective and unsafe building conditions, inadequate maintenance that cause an unsafe environment, or inadequate security that lacks proper lighting or defense against possible criminal activity. The McPherson Personal Injury Attorneys at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley also handle product liability claims, which are the result of consumers being injured by defective products. The last major type of personal injury involves “intentional torts,” which is another way of saying “assault and battery.”
