Facebook Pixel Code 3 Common Mistakes That Can Hurt Auto Accident Claims - Ponce Law
CALL 24/7 (615) 244-4325
by Staff Blogger | June 4, 2018

Car crashes are often extremely costly for victims. In addition to dealing with totaled vehicles that require thousands of dollars in repairs, victims also may be facing expensive medical bills and weeks or even months where they’re too hurt to go back to work—and that means no paychecks that they and their loved ones depend on.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys know how important it is for victims and their families to get back on track after crashes. It’s our goal to help our clients get maximum compensation, but we also know that claims are subject to many factors, including mistakes made by victims themselves.

You can avoid making a costly mistake by being aware of these common missteps:

  1. Saying too much to the insurance adjuster—Insurance adjusters have one primary responsibility: reducing or denying claim payments to victims like you. Leave the communication with the insurance company up to your attorney instead.
  2. Lying about your injuries—Never exaggerate or downplay your injuries. Being dishonest about the severity or origin of your injuries can disqualify you from receiving compensation for your auto accident.
  3. Waiting too long to get help—Car accident claims are subject to statutes of limitations, but an even more pressing issue is the availability of evidence. Important evidence can and often does quickly disappear after crashes, and that’s why time is of the essence when it comes to starting an investigation.

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
