It’s easy to feel overwhelmed after a crash. You’re already in pain due to your injuries, and you may be in shock due to the trauma of the crash and the ensuing adrenaline release. All you want to do is make sure you, your passengers, and everyone else was involved is okay.
But the crash itself may be just the beginning of the crisis for you and your loved ones. That’s because many crash victims either don’t realize the severity of their injuries or even that they are injured at all until hours or days later, causing them to make serious mistakes that can hurt their chances of getting compensation. Those mistakes include:
Not getting immediate medical treatment—The longer you wait to get treated, the worse your injuries may get. In addition, the insurance company may be skeptical about what caused your injuries.
Not reporting the crash to your insurance company—Even if you don’t think you were at fault, you’re still required to report the crash. Failure to do so can make you ineligible for compensation, especially if you have supplemental protection on your policy.
Not calling a lawyer—Consider yourself “lucky” if the insurance company offers you a lowball settlement without a lawyer on your side after a crash. Many car accident victims are given the silent treatment. But with a lawyer helping you, you can pursue the money you’re owed.
In summary: go to the doctor and make two quick phone calls. That’s it!
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

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!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
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.
