DEMAND JUSTICE

Some accidents are unavoidable. But when negligence and recklessness play a role in a preventable accident that causes personal injuries, the responsible party can be held liable. Negligence is the failure to take appropriate care when performing an action.

How much you can recover will always depend the specific facts of your case. Though, you may be able to seek compensation for:

  • All of your medical expenses

  • Any rehabilitation-related expenses

  • Long-term disability

  • Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity

  • Pain and suffering

  • Mental anguish and emotional distress

  • Disfigurement

YOU NEED TO ACT QUICKLY

If you've been injured in an accident, time is of the essence, and the window for legal recourse is short.  Contact the experts at Mestemaker and Straub to learn more about the time you have to file a personal injury claim after your accident.  DON'T WAIT!

Many injury victims are unable to recover the full compensation that they deserve. This happens because mistakes are made immediately following the accident. By taking the proper steps immediately after suffering injury, you will go a long way towards protecting your rights. If you have suffered a personal injury in Houston, consider the following list of the four things that you need to do as soon as possible:

  • Seek medical attention: There is nothing that should come before your health. After suffering any type of injury, you should get yourself a comprehensive medical evaluation. Often, your injuries will be far more serious than you realize. Injuries like head trauma and back damage are difficult to diagnose and often come with a delayed onset. You need to protect your health. Further, it is also important to get medical attention from a legal perspective. In the event that you choose to take legal action in relation to your injuries, you will need official medical documentation. Without the documentation that you will receive during your medical exams, it will be very difficult to prove the full extent of your injuries. 

  • Report your injury: You must also report your injury to all appropriate authorities. Who needs to know about your injury will depend on the specific circumstances of your case. For example, if you were injured in a Houston car accident, you will need to report your accident to the local authorities and to any insurance companies.

  • Secure evidence: Successful personal injury claims require evidence. After suffering an injury, you need to take proactive steps to preserve any evidence that you can get your hands on. Unfortunately, many types of evidence will quickly begin to disappear. If you fail to secure evidence soon after your accident, you may miss out on your opportunity to do so. For example, if you do not obtain a witness statement immediately after your accident, you may lose track of that witness. Alternatively, their statement may be perceived as less reliable. 

  • Contact an Experience Personal Injury Attorney: Ultimately, the most important thing you can do after an serious accident is to consult with a Houston personal injury attorney. Your attorney can make sure that you do everything the right way so that your legal rights are protected. As one example, your personal injury attorney will ensure that you can gather and secure all forms of evidence that are relevant to your claim.
