One of the hardest aspects in the investigation of a motor vehicle collision is determining the contributing factors and who should be held responsible for causing the crash. The Nashville Car Accident Lawyers with Ponce Law explain these questions are still being answered in the case of a fatal crash that occurred in Columbia, Tennessee, last week.
Reports from The Daily Herald explain the incident occurred on the afternoon of Jan. 27, near the crossing of the Nashville Highway and Imperial Road. The 22-year-old driver of a 2000 Mazda Protégé sedan was driving her vehicle north toward Spring Hill when she says her cellphone rang. She said she looked down at the phone and dropped it in the passenger seat moments before she almost plowed into the rear end of the vehicle in front of her.
The driver of the Mazda swerved to avoid the collision, but veered into the oncoming lane of traffic, where she then struck a 2006 Pontiac minivan being driven by a 49-year-old woman. The impact of the collision killed the driver of the van.
Investigators believe distracted driving was to blame, but are also looking into alcohol consumption and a possible defective roadway as factors, considering this was the fourth crash and second fatality at the site within three years.
The attorneys with Michael D. Ponce & Associates know how difficult it can be to lose a loved one to an accident caused by another person’s negligence and the firm would like to send their condolences to the family of the victim.

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!

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.
