After an auto accident, you’ll come into contact with several people who can have a big impact on the outcome of your claim. Some of those people will be at the accident scene itself. Provided you’re able to do so, it’s important to speak to the right people before you leave the scene.
Those people include:
The other driver—Always speak with the other driver. Exchanging names, contact information, and insurance details makes it easier to file a compensation claim. When speaking with the other driver, always stick to the facts of what happened and don’t admit fault prematurely.
The responding police officers—Whether you or someone else called 911 after the crash, you can expect police to arrive quickly. When they get to the scene, cooperate with them and answer their questions. Your answers will help them complete their accident report, which can help build your claim.
Anyone who witnessed the crash—It’s always helpful to have an unbiased account of what happened, and bystanders and witnesses can provide that. Witnesses can be difficult to locate after crashes occur, so getting their contact details before you leave the scene of the crash can prove vital when you begin seeking compensation.
After speaking with those parties, you should get medical treatment as soon as possible. Whether you go to the hospital via ambulance or arrange your own transportation, getting evaluated by a doctor can help rule out internal injuries and provide proof that your injuries are accident-related.
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

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.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
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.
