Car Accident FAQs

What should I do if I’m in a car accident?

Auto accident injuries often require expensive medical treatment and may leave you unable to work. If you’ve been in a car accident, knowing what to do in the days and the weeks that follow can help you get the compensation you need to get your life back.

Visit our car accidents page for 3 steps to take after a car accident that can help protect your health and strengthen your car accident claim.

I feel fine. Should I still see a doctor after my car accident?

On screen: “What if I do not feel hurt at the scene but experience pain afterwards?”

Michael: You should always seek medical care as soon as possible. Car accidents are violent and traumatic, and they can cause serious external and internal injuries. But not all injuries seem serious at first.

If you are experiencing symptoms, don’t try to “tough it out.” Your injuries may be more severe than you think. It’s important to see a doctor so that you can understand the cause and treatment needed to get you back to 100%.

If you have questions or need help getting treatment, contact Ponce Law anytime. We’ve helped thousands of accident victims get the medical care they need, including people without health insurance.

Should I notify my insurance company of the accident?

Yes. Notifying your insurance company about your accident may seem intimidating, but failure to do so can result in loss of coverage under your policy. Don’t wait to take this step—most insurance companies expect policyholders to notify them of accidents within a very short period of time. If you need assistance, Ponce Law wants to help.

Our Nashville car accident lawyers can communicate with your insurance company on your behalf, so you can focus on getting better. Call us 24/7 at 615-244-4325 or complete our free initial consultation form to get the legal representation you need.

How soon after the accident should I get a lawyer?

As soon as you get the medical treatment you need, your next priority should be getting a skilled car accident attorney to help you with your claim. At Ponce Law, we’re here to investigate your accident, gather evidence that can help prove your claim, and ensure your legal paperwork is completed accurately and on time. The sooner you contact us about your case, the sooner we can begin fighting for the compensation you deserve.

Can I still make a claim if I’m a passenger in the car whose driver is at-fault?

Yes. You have the right to file an injury claim after an accident that wasn’t your fault, regardless of the vehicle you were riding in. If your friend or family member was driving and caused the accident that injured you, it’s important to remember that you’re seeking compensation from their auto insurance policy, not their personal finances. This protects them from having to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses out of pocket.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
