If you feel uncomfortable driving at night, there’s a good reason for it. Nighttime driving is more dangerous than daytime driving. When you drive at night, there are multiple factors that can increase your risk of a crash:
Visibility is significantly reduced, and you and other drivers are dependent on each other’s headlights, taillights, brake lights, and turn signals to see each other.
You may be drowsier, and thus more likely to make mistakes, especially if you’re driving very late at night or very early in the morning. That also applies to other drivers.
You’re more likely to encounter drunk or impaired drivers at night than during the day.
To reduce your risk of a crash while driving at night, you should:
Ensure you can see as clearly as possible. Keep your windshield cleaner reservoir topped off and your wipers in good condition, and if you need glasses or contacts, always wear them when driving—especially at night.
Check your vehicle’s headlights and taillights regularly and replace any burned out bulbs.
Don’t drive if you’re drowsy, and if you become sleepy behind the wheel, pull over to a safe location to get a quick nap.
Drive cautiously and defensively, especially around erratic drivers. These drivers may be intoxicated. If you suspect another driver is drunk, call 911 or the Tennessee Highway Patrol and report them.
These tips can reduce your risk of a crash, but there’s always a risk that you’ll cross paths with a negligent driver. If that happens and you’re hurt in a crash, Ponce Law is here to help.

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.
