With Nashville being one of the most populated metropolitan areas in the state of Tennessee, it comes as no surprise that many citizens choose to travel by foot. While this can be a healthy and economical choice, it can also put pedestrians at a serious risk of involvement in a collision with a motor vehicle. In fact, records show there are dozens injured as the result of a Nashville pedestrian accident each month.
Most recently, a person was hurt while crossing the street at the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Timmons Street at approximately 9:30 p.m. yesterday evening. According to an article from New Channel 5, the accident was the result of a motorist failing to recognize the pedestrian in the street.
As many are preparing to celebrate the 4th of July holiday downtown this coming weekend, the Nashville personal injury lawyers with Ponce Law would like to remind motorists and pedestrians alike of the importance of awareness when traveling and are offering these tips to help keep everyone safe:
Look Twice– At roadway intersections, both motorists and pedestrians should remember to look in all directions multiple times before attempting to cross in order to ensure no one else is coming.
Obey Traffic Signals– Both cars and pedestrians should be reminded to follow the directions of signage and lights.
Eliminate Distractions– Both drivers and those who are walking should put their phones away to avoid accidents caused by simple distractions.
Limit Alcohol Consumption- While those who are driving should refrain from drinking at all due to safety concerns and laws prohibiting drinking and driving, pedestrians are put at a greater risk of accidental injury when alcohol is involved. So, please, drink responsibly.

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!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to 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.
