After an auto accident, there are three essential steps that everyone should take: calling 911, getting medical treatment, and contacting an experienced Nashville auto accident lawyer.
But those aren’t the only important steps that may help victims maximize their chances of receiving full compensation. Additional steps that are often overlooked but are extremely important include:
Reporting the accident to your own insurance company—Although most car crash victims get compensation from the insurance companies of the drivers who caused their accidents, it’s still mandatory to report your accident to your own insurer. In fact, this step must be completed within a short period of time—often a matter of just a day or two after the crash occurred. It’s especially vital to call your insurer if you have personal injury protection, as that policy may play into your recovery.
Writing down what happened—It’s easy to forget important details about the accident in the hours, days, or weeks after it happened. But those details are vital for your claim and for your lawyer to build your case. Write down as much information about the accident as you can remember as soon as you’re able to, including what lane you were in, how fast you were going, and everything leading up to the moment of impact.
At Ponce Law, it’s our goal to help victims like you get maximum compensation for their auto accidents. In addition to working for your financial recovery, we also strive to assist with your physical recovery by taking the burden of the accident off your shoulders. Relax and focus on getting better while we work on your behalf. Call today for a free consultation.

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!

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.
