FAQ: How do I Enforce My Rights if I’ve Been in a Trucking Accident in Topeka, Kansas?


The capital city of the state of Kansas, Topeka is a hub for freight-carrying trucks. With as much trucking activity as our city sees, it’s important for Topeka residents to know how to enforce their rights if they’ve been injured in a trucking accident.

Alarmingly, when a semi-truck is involved in an accident, the other driver and their passengers are the most likely to suffer serious injuries. Fortunately, under Kansas laws, those injured in trucking accidents have the legal right to bring a personal injury claim against the trucking company and driver.

“If you’ve been involved in a serious accident, the best way to enforce your rights is to contact an attorney who regularly handles these types of claims,” said attorney Scott Mann, founding partner of the Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys.

The Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys team has Topeka injury attorneys who specialize in trucking accidents. The team communicates with insurance companies and trucking companies on behalf of our clients. We share information related to liability of the claim (comparative fault) and establishing our clients’ damages.

According to Mann, “If that information is not provided, you will not be compensated for your injuries. Ultimately, if we’re unable to arrive at a settlement with the insurance company— which can happen— we’ll then file a lawsuit for you with the goal of getting you the best recovery.”
