Every summer, safety organizations and the media remind parents of the dangers of leaving children and pets inside their cars while they run errands. The temperatures inside cars can quickly soar to dangerous and even fatal levels in a matter of minutes, even on relatively cool days. And while having a system for making sure your children are never left behind in your vehicle is extremely important, it’s not the only hot car danger you might face as a parent.
Another danger children face is being locked inside your vehicle when it’s parked at your home. Even young children are often familiar with how to get inside vehicles, including trunks or cargo areas. But when they’re inside, they may be unable to exit or call for help. Despite the fact that your vehicle may be parked in your own driveway or inside your garage, it can still be dangerous and even fatal for your children, especially on hot summer days.
You can prevent such a tragedy by always locking your vehicle when it’s not in use and by keeping your keys locked up or otherwise out of reach of your children. Never allow your children to play in your vehicle at home, and make sure your child exit your vehicle when you arrive home, even if they’ve fallen asleep during the drive.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys know that hot car deaths are just another risk factor that vehicles pose to innocent people like you and their loved ones. If you or someone you love was hurt in a car accident caused by someone else, we want to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

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!

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.
