- Charles Argento

Our Houston personal injury attorney, Charles J. Argento & Associates, has secured significant car accident settlements for our clients and will continue to seek the maximum financial recovery for each injury victim we represent throughout the State of Texas.

Before we can begin fighting for our clients’ rights to pursue the best outcome available for their unique circumstances, getting the most out of your Houston car accident settlement begins with you.

Here are a few tips to ensure your personal injury case gets off on the right foot.

Use the Resources Made Available After the Traffic Accident Occurred

If you have been injured in an accident and are searching for ways to pursue the negligent party for your damages, chances are, the crash scene is well behind you.

If you could wait until the police arrived before pursuing medical care, you may have had the opportunity to gather a few important resources after the crash occurred, including the:

  • Police report
  • Other driver’s license, registration, and insurance information
  • Images from the crash scene
  • Witness statements

Hang on to each of those details.

Also, do not discard any clothing, contact information, or other evidence from the day of the crash. You never know what could be useful when pursuing your financial recovery.

Your Actions Will Dictate Your Financial Outcome

To pursue financial recovery for your medical care, lost wages, and other expenses, we must be able to prove your injuries were caused in a collision with a negligent driver.

That means you must seek medical care directly after the accident occurs, to fully support your case. Keep copies of all medical records and documents you can from the accident.

Follow All Medical Instructions Fully After the Crash

Each accident with injuries is unique and requires different types and lengths of care to return to the quality of life you previously enjoyed — when that is fully possible.

Your injuries may require long-term care, including in-office follow-up appointments, rehabilitation, and therapy. To help ensure we can build a strong case on your behalf, you must follow all your doctors’ instructions to the letter.

That means never missing an appointment, taking all your medication, and avoiding physical activity or returning to work until you have been released by your physicians.
