Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? If you’ve been in a car accident, it may be more than just a feeling. During the injury claim process, you may be investigated by the insurance company in an effort to prove that you’re not as injured as you claim. They may speak with your employer, reach out to your friends, and read your social media feeds to uncover any inconsistencies with your story.
With that amount of money on the line, it makes sense that they would try to find a way to dismiss the claim altogether. But when you’re seriously injured, there are a couple things you can do to help make sure the insurance company can’t unfairly discredit your claim.
Don’t embellish or minimize your injuries in conversations or on social media. The old adage “when in doubt, tell the truth” applies in an injury claim. The fact that we’ve taken on your case means you were significantly injured in the crash. If you have to speak about your injuries to anyone, give them the basic facts, nothing more.
Secondly, stay off social media. We’ve seen a Facebook post taken out of context destroy an injury claim. Simply posting a status that says you’re “feeling great” could be misconstrued as you’ve fully recovered and are no longer injured. Sounds ridiculous, but it happens. The best course of action is to stay off social media until your case is settled.
Personal injury claims take an investment of time and patience, but it’s an investment that could pay off in the long run. Let us focus on getting you paid for your injuries. You just focus on your recovery. And assume the insurance company is watching, because they might be.

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.
