Technology has impacted every aspect of daily life, including vehicles. And while many car buyers are initially most impressed by things like huge touchscreen displays, ambient lighting, and Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, the most important technological advances involve those that reduce their risk of crashes.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, and since it was founded, auto manufacturers have worked hard to obtain 5-star safety ratings. In recent years, numerous advances have made drivers and passengers safer both on the road and during crashes, including:
Airbags—Modern vehicles are equipped with multiple airbags that protect occupants from all angles during crashes.
Electronic stability control (ESC)—Whether it’s due to slick roads or taking a corner too fast, losing control of your vehicle is terrifying. ESC helps drivers remain in control in otherwise dangerous situations.
Backup cameras—Handy in parking lots, backup cameras were made mandatory in all new vehicles beginning May 1, 2018, due to backover accidents that seriously injure or kill many people, including children, every year.
Blind spot detection—Mirrors don’t show you everything when you’re preparing to turn or change lanes, and turning your head means taking your eyes off the road. Blind spot detection means you’ll know if someone is in your blind spot without ever turning your head.
Crash-avoidance systems—Some vehicles are capable of taking over in an instant and avoiding crashes on their own. Distractions are always dangerous but sometimes unavoidable, and these high-tech systems apply automatic braking just before impact.

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.
