Common auto accident injuries include whiplash, head and brain injury, paralysis, and joint, bone, and muscle injuries. Auto accident victims should seek medical attention as soon as possible if they believe they are injured. Auto accident claims for damages resulting from injuries usually depend on medical records linking the auto accident to the injuries received-the more time elapses between the auto accident and the treatment, the more difficult it is to prove a connection.
Typically, auto accidents are handled through each party's insurance are settled quickly if no one is hurt. In some cases, auto accidents resulting in personal injury or extensive property loss lead to lawsuits. Damages sought after auto accidents can include cost of medical treatment, physical and mental anguish, pain and suffering, property damage, loss of use (car rental) and loss of wages. If you have been in an auto accident, and need legal advice or assistance, it is best to contact an auto accident attorney familiar with auto accident laws in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
These are known as premises liability claims.
If you are in a store, parking lot or just simply walking on a sidewalk and are injured due to a premises defect, you should consult an attorney. One thing you have to prove is that the defect is an unreasonably dangerous condition. Your status as either a trespasser, licensee or invitee (you are shopping in a store such as Wal-Mart) is relevant as to what duty the premises owner owes you.
The premises owner may have violated building codes, their own rules or simply violated a city, state or federal law.
Take pictures, get statements of witnesses, employees and get a copy of any incident report the premises owner takes if he or she will give you one. Look around for cameras and take pictures of where the cameras are. Tell the store owner you want a copy of the video and if they will not give you a copy, tell them to not destroy it. Do not be threatening or make statements like “I am going to call my lawyer.” Be calm and collective as possible.

If you are involved in an auto accident, call the police immediately - even if no one was injured and file an accident report. If there is under $1,000.00 in property damage and no one is hurt, the police officer might give you a blue form to make a formal report. Auto accident reports for insurance purposes may determine fault, but they are not dispositive since the police officer most likely did not see the accident. He or she can only take statements from the involved parties and look at the damage to the vehicles to determine fault. You should verify that the report is thorough.
