Getting a citation for driving under the influence (DUI) can be life-changing. It results in mandatory jail time, a big fine, and even loss of driving privileges. Because of the consequences of a DUI—and the fact that police are always looking for drunk drivers—it’s common to believe that drunk drivers are rare or are quickly caught and punished.
But that couldn’t be further from the case. Studies show that drunk drivers get behind the wheel while impaired as many as 80 times before they’re pulled over and arrested! There are around 1.15 million DUI arrests per year in the U.S., so that means the number of actual arrests barely scratches the surface of how many people are driving drunk nationwide and in Tennessee at any given time.
So, what can you do with this knowledge? First, be sure to never drive while impaired. There are enough drunk drivers on TN’s roadways already, and the last thing they, you, and your loved ones need is yet another reckless and negligent driver. Second, do everything you can to increase your safety. That means avoiding distractions, not speeding, always wearing a seat belt, and driving as defensively as possible.
If you’re ever injured in a crash involving a drunk driver, there’s a good chance you’ll suffer serious injuries that result in big medical bills. Our Nashville auto accident lawyers want to help you get compensation for your losses. Contact us today for a free consultation. We’ll prove the other driver was drunk, and we’ll work hard to get you paid in full.

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!

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.
