At Ponce Law, it’s our goal to take some of the stress of car accidents off the victims’ shoulders. But we also know that many victims don’t contact us until hours, days, or even weeks after their crashes. The immediate aftermath of a crash can be a critical time period for victims and their loved ones, and being prepared for the possibility of a crash—and knowing what steps to take after one occurs—can dramatically impact recovery and your chances of receiving compensation.
To better prepare yourself and your family for a crash, be sure to keep these three items in your vehicle and the vehicles of your loved ones:
First aid kit—First responders are highly trained and well equipped to handle medical emergencies, but they may not be able to respond to accidents right away due to traffic or distance. Having a first aid kit can help you manage injuries until professional help arrives.
Important vehicle-related documents—One of the first things you should do after a crash is exchange insurance information with the other driver. Having your insurance card on hand makes that process easier. In addition, you should always carry your vehicle registration and a notepad to write down what happened before you forget or the details become fuzzy.
Roadside emergency kit—Crashes can happen during all types of weather and at all times of day. A roadside emergency kit should contain items like jumper cables, a flashlight, traffic cones, flares, water, food, blankets, and even a change of clothes.
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.
