After a crash, you probably have a lot on your mind. You and your loved ones may need medical care for serious injuries, which can include everything from prolonged stays in the hospital and even surgery to weeks or months of rehabilitation. In addition, you may be worried about when you’ll recover enough to go back to work and once again start earning the paychecks you and your family depend on.
Lost in the midst of those concerns may be filing a compensation claim for your accident-related expenses. For many people, the full brunt of the costs associated with car crashes isn’t felt for many months. That can result in a delay when it comes to pursuing a settlement from the insurance company. However, waiting too long to file a claim can mean losing your chance to file one at all. When the statute of limitations for injury claims expires, you can no longer pursue compensation.
To further complicate matters, Tennessee’s statute of limitations is one year after the date of your accident. That means unless your claim has been filed with the insurance company by the one-year anniversary of the crash, you can’t get compensation. It’s important to remember that claims aren’t automatically submitted once you begin the process or even when you hire a lawyer, as preliminary steps must be taken. That’s why it’s vital to contact a lawyer right away.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident attorneys want to help you get the money you deserve. However, we also need time to collect evidence and prepare your claim to the best of our ability—and that’s why calling us in the hours or days after the crash is important. Don’t wait to get the help you need—contact us now for a free consultation.

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!

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.
