Headphones and earbuds are one of the most commonly owned pieces of tech gear in the world. Almost everyone has at least one pair, and they’re often bundled with new smartphones. Whether wired or wireless, headphones and earbuds can provide a quick “escape” from your surroundings and allow you to immerse yourself in music, a podcast, or even just relaxing ambient noise.

But that immersion and escape can be extremely dangerous when you need your hearing to avoid accidents and injuries. Driving with headphones on means you may be unable to hear the sounds of nearby vehicles or emergency responders. That means you won’t be able to hear the sound of someone using their horn or the sound of an ambulance’s siren.

Riding a bicycle or walking with earbuds in can be even more dangerous. When you have no safety features to protect you, and you may not be seen by other drivers, you must do everything in your power to protect yourself and avoid a collision. And when you’re listening to music or a podcast, you aren’t getting all of the sensory information you need to be fully aware of your surroundings.

Finally, wearing headphones can be distracting, even if you have the volume low enough to still hear what’s going on around you. When you’re engrossed in a song or podcast, you aren’t giving the task at hand the attention it deserves, whether that’s driving, cycling, or walking safely.

At Ponce Law, we always encourage safe road habits, and we hold people who neglect them and then cause accidents accountable. Contact our Nashville auto accident lawyers today if you were injured by a negligent driver.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    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.
