When you’re driving and trying to get to work, home, or a vacation destination, the last thing you want to do is stop if you don’t have to. You’re focused on getting to your destination as quickly as possible, and that means you may try to push through potentially dangerous situations.

The next time you experience the following, it’s important to pull over to a safe location rather than continuing to drive:

  1. Falling asleep behind the wheel—Drowsy driving is a dangerous epidemic in the U.S. Around 35% of Americans report being sleep deprived, and that can affect their ability to drive safely. If you’re struggling to stay focused and awake, pull over to a safe location to take a quick nap.
  2. Driving in torrential rain/snow or heavy fog—Modern vehicles are equipped to handle inclement weather, but not extreme weather. When rain or snow are absolutely pouring down, your wipers won’t be able to keep up and you may not be able to see in front of you. Extreme fog can also reduce visibility to just a few feet in front of your vehicle.
  3. Needing to make an important phone call—You should never use a handheld phone while driving. But even using a hands-free function to make or take a call can be dangerously distracting, especially when it’s an important call. For these calls, always pull over to a safe location first.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident lawyers know that not all drivers follow these safety guidelines. When they don’t, they put themselves and others at risk. If you are injured by a negligent driver, we’re here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    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.
