As much as we’d like all auto accident claims to be simple and easily solved, few are. Every auto accident is unique, as are the stories and lives of each injured victim. However, at Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys have many years of experience building successful claims for innocent car accident victims, and that experience means we’ve encountered many of the potential snags and pitfalls that victims may face along the way.

Three common roadblocks include:

  1. Pre-existing injuries—Insurance companies love to claim accident-related injuries are pre-existing. And sometimes, victims do have pre-existing injuries that are worsened by crashes. When that happens, we collect and compare medical records from the initial injury and the accident-related injury to prove that it was worsened or aggravated by the crash.
  2. Partial fault—Not all crashes can be pinned exclusively on one driver. In many cases, two or more drivers are at fault, including victims. Tennessee’s modified comparative negligence system means that victims can recover a percentage of settlements, as long as they aren’t 51% or more responsible for their crashes.
  3. Insurance company refuses to pay—Insurance companies don’t like paying settlements to victims, but they also don’t like dragging things out if they don’t think they can avoid paying. That’s why many claims settle out of court. But sometimes, insurance companies refuse to pay for a myriad of reasons, and when that happens, we don’t hesitate to escalate our client’s claims to trial.

As auto accident lawyers, it’s our job to be ready for any and all snags, from the day our clients contact us until the day they get their checks. Trust our experience and track record of success—your claim will be in good hands. Call today for a free consultation.

    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.

    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.
