At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident lawyers are here to help people who have been hurt in crashes that weren’t their fault. But even clients who we help win big settlements would prefer to have avoided their crashes in the first place. Auto accidents are painful and traumatic, and it’s every driver’s job to do everything in their power to reduce the risks they pose to themselves and to others to prevent accidents.

To stay safe on the roadways during the rest of 2019 and into 2020, do your best to follow these tips:

  1. Don’t speed—Exceeding the speed limit is dangerous because it makes it easier to lose control of your vehicle, increases the time it takes you to come to a stop, and increases the risk of injuries if you’re involved in an accident. Driving at or below the speed limit improves your safety and means no expensive speeding tickets.
  2. Don’t drive while impaired—Avoiding impaired driving means many things. In addition to never getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, it also means never driving under the influence of certain prescription or over-the-counter medications. In addition, you should also avoid driving if you’re exhausted or sleep deprived.
  3. Don’t become distracted—Distracted driving is a growing safety epidemic in the U.S., with smartphones leading the charge. Since July 1, 2019, it’s illegal to hold your phone while driving in TN. However, any smartphone use can be distracting, even with hands-free devices. If you need to make a call or send a text, pull over.

If you’re involved in a crash that was caused by a negligent driver, we want to help you get the money you deserve. Call 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.
