What Compensation Can You Get After a Crash that Wasn’t Your Fault?

by Staff Blogger | December 9th, 2019

If you were recently hurt in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have one thing on your mind: getting better. But as time goes on, a second priority will emerge: finding a way to keep yourself and your loved one’s financially afloat. That’s because the aftermath of auto accidents is often extremely expensive, and your injuries may prevent you from working and earning a paycheck.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident attorneys have helped many people just like you recover compensation after crashes that weren’t their fault. Three common types of compensation you may be eligible for include:

  1. Medical bills—Auto accident-related medical bills start racking up as soon as you call an ambulance or enter the emergency room. From there, they can spiral out of control, especially if your injuries are serious. Our team will fight to get you paid for your bills.
  2. Lost wages—When you’re injured, you may be physically or psychologically unable to work for weeks, months, or even years. That means no paychecks and a derailed career. Our attorneys know how devastating disabling injuries can be, and we’ll work hard to get you compensation.
  3. Pain and suffering—It’s common for car accident victims to develop psychological symptoms, including depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder after crashes. These symptoms can interfere with quality of life, and we believe they deserve compensation.

You’ve gone through enough already. The last thing you need is for your family to experience financial hardship because of a crash that wasn’t your fault. Call us today for a free consultation.
