If you’re still struggling to adjust to the recent time change, you aren’t alone. Studies show that the roads become more dangerous in the days after time changes—especially in the spring. Losing one hour of sleep might not seem like a big deal, but for many people, it can disrupt their sleep schedules for weeks to come.

The beginning of Daylight-Saving Time isn’t the only cause of drowsiness in drivers across Tennessee, however. People are getting less and less sleep every year due to increased demands of their time and schedules—not to mention the growing usage of electronic devices before bedtime and in bed. Combine that with health problems that can interfere with sleep, including sleep apnea, and drowsy driving is becoming an epidemic in America.

It’s important to think of drowsy driving the same way you think of drunk driving. Buzzed drivers face many of the same risks as drunk drivers, even though they may feel more in control and alert. Drowsy drivers also may feel more in control that drivers who are falling asleep at the wheel, but they’re experiencing many dangerous symptoms of sleep deprivation, including reduced reaction times, impaired judgment, blurred vision, and more.

No matter how many steps you take to be a safe driver, you’re missing one of the most crucial preventive measures if you aren’t getting at least seven to eight hours of sleep per night. At Ponce Law, we recognize that sleep-deprived drivers everywhere in Tennessee, and when they cause crashes due to negligence, our Nashville auto accident lawyers work hard to hold them liable and get their victims maximum compensation.

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

    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.
