After your car accident, you’re feeling stressed and in pain. The biggest concern on your mind is getting to the hospital or doctor and making sure that you and your loved ones are okay.
But the immediate aftermath of an auto accident and the days following it are critical for making sure that you’ll remain eligible to get full compensation for your injury-related expenses. Insurance companies are ready to spring into action when they find out about crashes involving their policyholders, and they know plenty of ways to avoid paying full settlements.
One wrong move can jeopardize your compensation. Here are two tips to remember to help protect your rights after an accident:
Don’t admit fault to the other driver, police officer, or insurance adjuster.
Even if you think you might have contributed to the accident, it’s important to avoid admitting fault to anyone involved, whether it’s the other driver, the responding police officer, or any representative from the insurance company. Evidence, including surveillance footage, skid marks, and witness statements could prove that the other driver was at-fault.
Don’t accept the first settlement offer from the insurance company.
Insurance companies know that auto accident victims are in shock, in pain, and worrying about how they’re going to pay their bills. That’s why they may offer settlements right away, long before victims have had a chance to calculate how much they’ll owe for their accident-related expenses.
After you’ve received medical treatment for your injuries, your next priority should be getting a Nashville car accident attorney on your side. We’ll protect your rights by handling communication and negotiation with the insurance company, so that you can focus on getting better.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
