Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner in Middle Tennessee, and that means it’s almost time for daylight saving time. But before you set your clock forward, the Goodlettsville car accident lawyers at Ponce Law point out that the time shift may put you at an increased risk of a motor vehicle crash.
A report from WKRN 2 News says that in the past, daylight saving time has been listed as a contributing factor in numerous auto collisions and workplace accidents. So, here are a few tips to help keep you safe when the time shifts at 2 a.m. on March 8:
Get Plenty of Rest– Daylight saving time means we will lose an hour of sleep on Sunday night. Drowsy driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents during this time of year, so be sure to go to bed extra early on Sunday to ensure you aren’t tired when driving on Monday.
Be Visible– Many people may be adjusting to new light and dark schedules. That’s why it’s crucial that you use the headlights on your vehicle between dawn and dusk, and also during conditions with low visibility.
Give Yourself Time To Adjust– Experts say your circadian rhythms may be off and it can take time to let your body acclimate to your new schedule. So, be sure you allow yourself some extra time to complete tasks on Monday.
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

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.
