Who doesn’t love seeing a car-riding dog enjoying the fresh air with the window rolled down? While it’s a cute sight and fun for dog owners and other motorists alike, it’s not exactly safe. Letting dogs roam freely inside your vehicle is just as, if not more dangerous, than letting your children roam in your vehicle unbuckled.

The safest way to transport your dog is inside a crate. Crates not only help keep dogs safer during crashes, but they also prevent them from hurting you or putting you and others on the road at risk.

Imagine this scenario: you’re driving at 70 mph on the interstate and your dog jumps into your lap. Shooing them away means taking your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, and your mind off the tasking of driving. This scenario is common and extremely dangerous.

Small dogs can be particularly dangerous in vehicles. They can get in the floorboard and make it difficult for you to press the gas or brake. Their small size can also allow them to get stuck, which can also be distracting.

Finally, don’t leave your dog in your vehicle, especially on hot days. Hot car deaths affect more than just small children and babies. They can also affect pets who are left behind, too.

If you or someone you love gets injured in a crash caused by a negligent driver, including one who failed to crate their pet, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact the Nashville auto accident lawyers at Ponce Law today for a free consultation.

    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.

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.
