After a crash, you need compensation, and it’s clear the other driver was at fault for the accident. After all, the police report, witnesses, and even the other driver all agree on that fact. At that point, it’s safe to cut out the “middle man” and pursue compensation on your own, right? Why call an attorney when you can go it alone after a crash?

Actually, it’s not that simple, and you run serious risks if you forgo legal representation. While it’s true that you may get compensation from the other driver’s insurance company, it’s unlikely to be nearly enough to cover all your medical bills and lost wages, not to mention your future expenses and pain and suffering. In addition, insurance companies are well known for making promises to victims, only to give them the runaround and let the statute of limitations expire.

Don’t Go It Alone After a Crash

Remember, Tennessee’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is just one year. Insurance companies are well aware of that fact, and they use it to their advantage. They’ll be more than happy to delay the process to close your window of opportunity.

In addition, your injuries may prevent you from working, and you may be in serious pain. The last thing you need is to deal with daily calls from the insurance company or play phone tag with an uncooperative adjuster while you’re trying to get better.

When you don’t have an experienced attorney handling your case, you run risk of getting less compensation than you deserve. People often accept the first offer insurers make, simply because they think they have to. It’s vital to understand that you aren’t obligated to accept the first offer you receive.

    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.
