  3. Determine if the accident resulted in any injuries. If anyone was injured call an ambulance. Some minor accidents may result in injuries. However, when in doubt call an ambulance. This can be accomplished by calling 911.
  4. When possible you should avoid moving the vehicles and accident debris until the police arrive.  The position of the vehicles and accident debris can be crucial in the police officers investigation.
  5. If you are injured, make sure that you tell the police officer.

    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.
