Your Attorneys in Salina Protecting Louise and Glendon

children getting on school bus

Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley puts the needs of clients before everything else. In 2004, on September 23, six lives changed instantly when a semi truck T-boned a school bus. The 6 school children inside were seriously injured — Glendon was paralyzed. After the accident, several parties started arguing over money.

“There were 3 different insurance companies involved,” explains Scott Mann. “There was the school, semi truck, and bus driver. One insurance company wouldn’t pay before the other. In the meantime, the victims and their families were not getting the help they needed.”

Louise, Glendon’s mother, knew that her son and the other children needed immediate help. She discovered Scott through a mutual friend, but the prospect of speaking with an attorney was frightening to her. After meeting Scott, these fears were almost immediately put to rest.

Our attorneys in Salina have assisted countless of accident victims reclaim their lives.

“You think of attorneys as ‘uptight’ or distant, but this isn’t the case with Scott,” says Louise. “He is genuinely friendly, honest and down to earth. Scott is easy to talk to and takes away the fear. He is always quick to respond to help.”

Scott took the case of all 6 children and their families, and found them justice. He made the insurance companies uphold their obligations, and found a way for the families to pay their large medical bills. “Scott helped us in all aspects of the case,” Louise explains. “He explained complex legal issues in a way that was easy to understand. He also deciphered the mediator’s explanation of the settlement.”

Although the case was settled successfully a decade ago, Louise and Glendon are still in contact with Scott. His office doors remain open to them — even without an appointment. “He helped us through a terrible time in our lives,” Louise says. “Scott is a friend first and a lawyer second.”
