Getting an experienced Nashville auto accident lawyer on your side after a crash is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to protecting your rights to compensation. But there are a few steps you can take—and some you should avoid—before you even call our office that can help maximize your opportunity to get money for your medical bills and lost wages.
After the crash, you should:
Get contact information from witnesses and the other driver(s). Being able to contact other people who were involved in the crash or who saw it happen is a vital step in the auto accident claim process.
Get medical attention. Even if you don’t think you need immediate medical attention, it’s important to see a doctor or visit a hospital. You may have internal injuries, and your visit will create a medical record of your injuries—which is valuable evidence for your claim.
After the crash, you shouldn’t:
Admit fault for the accident. Even if you think you may have partially contributed to the accident, you shouldn’t say that to the other driver, the police, or the insurance company before knowing your rights. Evidence may prove the crash was entirely someone else’s fault, but admitting fault prematurely can jeopardize your claim.
Wait too long to contact a lawyer. In addition to the statute of limitations running out, waiting too long to contact an attorney means that evidence can disappear, making it more difficult to prove the other driver was at fault.

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!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to 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.
