If your daily commute involves any of the interstates or highways in and around Nashville, you know that traffic jams—often major ones—are an almost daily occurrence. And if you’ve noticed the problem has gotten worse in recent years with longer commutes and more accidents, there’s data that proves you’re right.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports that there were 33,681 crashes in Nashville in 2017 and 36,537 in 2018 for an increase of 8.5 percent. However, the city’s population only grew from 667,560 in 2017 to 671,374 in 2018—just a 0.6 percent increase. That means the number of accidents is far outpacing the city’s population growth.
In addition, a study by the U.S. Census Bureau found that mean commuting times for people who work in Davidson County increased from just over 23 minutes in 2012 to 24.5 minutes in 2017, with a sharp increase beginning in 2014. While that may not seem like a lot, it can quickly add up, especially since commute times for 2019 are likely to be even longer than they were in 2017, and the trend is unlikely to slow down anytime soon.

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.

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.
