What Should You Do If You Get Hurt in a Crash Caused by Someone You Know?

When people are injured in auto accidents that were caused by strangers, they’re rarely hesitant to file compensation claims if it means getting money for their medical bills and lost wages. But when the responsible parties are people they know, including family members and friends, they may be less likely to take the same actions.

It’s important to remember that filing a compensation claim after an auto accident isn’t the same as suing someone personally. Most auto accident claims are paid through liable drivers’ insurance policies—not out of their own pockets.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident lawyers believe that victims should always seek the compensation they deserve after injury-causing crashes, regardless of who was at fault. Insurance policies are designed to cover injury-related expenses and to protect both liable parties and victims from experiencing severe financial hardship.

If you were hurt in a crash caused by someone you know, we’re here to help. We know that these types of claims are often sensitive matters, and we’re ready to handle yours with the utmost respect for everyone involved. Contact us today for a free consultation to find out how we may be able to put our years of experience to work for you.
