Personal Injury and Accident Attorney in Houston, TX
Why choose Charles J. Argento & Associates?
I think the most important thing is that for my first ten years of practice I represented people who were sued, so I worked with the insurance companies and learned what their thinking was, how they evaluated a case, and what a case was worth. For my first ten years of practice I did that regarding automobile accidents, products liability, medical malpractice, toxic torts, and all various personal injury types of cases. With that experience, I have inside knowledge on what makes them pay, what information they need, and also the things that they’re looking for to prevent you from getting any kind of money. I think that is a unique thing which most people do not have practicing for 26 years, and is just invaluable in trying to get people the maximum money they deserve.
I’ve always been interested in trying to help people. I wanted to learn what it took for insurance companies to pay top money on cases. So I decided to defend personal injury lawsuits for corporations and insurance companies. Now I know exactly what it takes to make them pay the maximum money and benefits my clients deserve.
The first is a $16.5 million product liability case. There were three deaths in this case. The next is a $6 million dollar settlement for an operated back and neck resulting from a truck accident. I also had a $5 million operated neck from a trucking case that we received money on and a $4 million construction accident case where a worker fell off a roof. I had a $3.5 million medical malpractice suit against a doctor where my client lost an arm as a result of negligence. I had a $6 million toxic exposure case. Thousands of people were exposed to toxic fumes. There was a $1 million auto accident case requiring back surgery; a $500,000.00 auto case for an operated back; and a $100,000.00 auto accident case involving numerous injuries.

Compassion for Clients
Dazzling talent in the courtroom and in negotiations with adversaries is but one reason to choose Charles J. Argento Houston Texas. There are other important reasons, and Charles’s compassion towards his clients is paramount among them. Winning for the sake of winning can promote a career, but Charles J. Argento’s core motivation comes from his unwavering concern for those who need his help. He first shows his concern for his clients by making their consultation with an injury attorney risk-free. In addition to the free, no obligation, consultation, Charles works on a contingency basis. This means that clients do not pay upfront for services. There are absolutely no fees or costs until you win your case, and this is the element of legal representation that many clients find so surprising. In fact, Charles J. Argento is so certain of his ability to provide the best representation possible that he risks his payment against his chances of winning. In other words, if you win, Charles gets paid. If you lose, Charles loses with you. But Charles J. Argento does not lose, and neither will you when you chose him as your accident attorney for cases in Houston or all of South Texas.
Aggressive representation against adversaries like giant insurance companies is but one way that Charles exhibits his compassion for clients. Yet another way involves helping clients realize their immediate needs. Often in personal injury cases, medical attention is needed immediately, but the victim lacks medical insurance. In such cases, Mr. Argento is often able to arrange for medical treatment at a facility near the client within Texas with charges deferred until compensation for the injury is received.
When it comes to collecting compensation justly due, one cannot rely on people’s good intentions. We all have good intentions, but when questions of liability arise, we often have different beliefs concerning who is at fault. That is when it becomes necessary to enlist the aid of professional representation. There is no shortage of accident attorneys in Houston TX, but in order to win your case and receive compensation for an injury, you must have the right counsel. The right counsel can ensure that you are treated fairly during the entire legal process. Charles J. Argento, Houston personal injury attorney is the right counsel for three important reasons: he provides must-have representation, he has a proven track record, and he has a deep and genuine concern for his clients.

Personal Injury & Recovery FAQs
Q: What constitutes a personal injury case? Do I have a legitimate claim?
A: The first rule of thumb when it comes to determining a personal injury case is answering whether or not you have actually suffered injury — either to your person or property. Next, was this injury someone else’s fault? Keep in mind when assessing the injury that it does not have to be physical in nature. Invasions of privacy, defamation of character and even emotional distress can constitute a personal injury lawsuit.
Q: If I was injured in an accident how quickly should I file a lawsuit?
A: The statute of limitations varies by state, and the time limit to file can be as little as 12 months. In the state of Texas, the statute to file a personal injury claim is 24 months, or two years. It is important to file within this time frame, so your legal rights can be upheld in a court of law.
Q: When meeting with an injury and accident attorney, what should I bring with me?
A: It is important to bring anything that is relevant to your personal injury case, which can include contact information of witnesses, accident reports and details regarding the conditions of your accident. Any pertinent information including dates, times, individuals present, locations and circumstances are all essential to the outcome of your case. In addition, medical bills, accounting of lost wages or future earnings and any record of damages to property or the insurance coverage involved (whether it is yours or the person’s you are suing). The more information you can provide in the initial consultation, the better.
Q: What if the result of person injured died prior to a claim being filed?
A: If the individual passes away as a result of their injuries from the claim that was going to be filed, the Spouse, Parents and Children can bring what is called a wrongful death suit against the person who caused the personal injury. If an unrelated circumstance caused the death of the individual who was going to file the personal injury claim, it is possible for their estate executor to pursue the case on their behalf.
Q: What is the definition of “Negligence?”
A: Personal injury claims are devised by the actions of a reasonable person, and placing accountability on those who cause injury as a result of non-compliance of these actions. Negligence is the result of a person failing to act as an ordinary, reasonable person. Actions taken by a negligent party are just as important as their inactions and both can be argued in court successfully to prove fault.
Q: What if negligence cannot be proved in court? Is there any other recourse for personal injury recovery?
A: Absolutely. Individuals and companies can be held liable for personal injury under law called “Strict Liability”. Within the law this is defined as liability that does not depend on actual negligence or intent to harm. This area of law is usually pursued for damages in defective and dangerous products cases, and in cases where harm is endured through hazardous materials or a dangerous substance, when injury is the result.
Q: What is the punishment for someone who has caused an injury to another?
A: Punishment, in the traditional sense, is not part of a personal injury case. Civil cases do not include jail time, fines or punishment by the penal system. The courts and juries will decide the financial ramifications and judgment against the person or company who has caused your personal injury, and in some cases punitive damages can be recovered in sizable amounts to discourage this behavior from continuing.
If you have been the victim of an accident through no fault of your own, whether it is an automotive, workplace, or other type of accident, and if you expect just compensation, then you must have adequate representation. But not all attorneys, particularly car accident lawyers, are equal in competence any more than all athletes are equal in skill or all automobiles are equal in speed. Indeed, the quality of car, motorcycle, or truck accident attorneys varies greatly, and when your well-being rests upon receiving compensation for an injury, you do not want to take chances. You want the best. Charles J. Argento is among the best accident attorneys in both Houston and all of Texas. Calling himself the best is not an idle boast when it comes from Charles. He has the credentials to prove it.
