Bankruptcy and Car Accidents Go Hand-in-Hand

by Staff Blogger | November 25th, 2016

Dorothy once said, “There’s no place like home.” It’s true. There is no place like home, and home is more than a building. It’s a place where you and your loved ones build a life. At Ponce Law, we work with Tennesseans to help them get the compensation they deserve—so they can protect the home they have worked so hard for. You might not think a car accident could threaten that home, but you’d be wrong.

The leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. today is medical bills. Many times, those medical bills are related to injuries sustained in a car accident. If the injured doesn’t call a lawyer to help with their injury claim, chances are they will accept too little money from the insurance company. The money will quickly ran out, but the bills will keep coming in. Pretty soon, they’re in a financial crisis that ends in bankruptcy court.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. Studies show that those who hire a lawyer to handle their injury claim on average get more money than those who go it alone. That’s more money for the medical treatment you’re going to need, the lost wages from not being able to work, and the pain and suffering you endured along the way. Don’t put your family’s financial future at risk. Call our experienced Nashville car accident attorneys today for a free consultation.
