Whether it’s a family member, a friend, a coworker, a carpool driver, or anyone else you know, you probably ride with other people regularly. Being a passenger while someone else is driving requires a lot of trust, but it’s something most of us take for granted or at least don’t worry about too much. But sometimes, crashes are caused not by people in other vehicles, but by the people sitting next to us in the driver’s seat!

At Ponce Law, we always recommend that people consult with a lawyer after auto accidents that weren’t their fault to find out their options for getting compensation. Many people are hesitant to do so if the crashes were caused by people they know, especially family members. In fact, they may not even be aware that they can pursue compensation.

It’s important to know that not only can you sue the driver of the vehicle you were riding in after a crash they caused, but you should—especially if the crash caused you to suffer serious injuries. Don’t worry—suing the driver is unlikely to make a dent in their personal finances. Instead, your accident-related expenses will be paid from their auto insurance policy.

You shouldn’t pay out of pocket for a crash that wasn’t your fault if a stranger caused it, and the same is true if the at-fault party is someone you know or are even related to. The Nashville car accident lawyers at Ponce Law know that this situation isn’t always easy, and we’re here to help you get compensation while ensuring your case is handled with care.

    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.
