Teens tend to be involved in a disproportionate number of motor vehicle crashes. Data indicates a total of 357 teens between ages 15-19 were killed in Tennessee car accidents between 2010-2014. Drunk and distracted driving was also found to play a role in a large number of these crashes.
To help raise awareness about teen drunk driving accidents, as well as the dangerous distractions using handheld electronic devices can cause, a program will be held this Saturday, Nov. 7, at Monroe Carrel Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Performances by local and regional recording artists
More importantly though, the event will focus on eliminating distractions and driving sober through a crash simulation. A mock crash scene will be set up with actors portraying the victims and real emergency crews responding to the scene. The simulation will end with a landing and takeoff of a LifeFlight helicopter. The hope is that those who witness the event will think twice about their actions behind the wheel.
There will also be several workshops taking place that discuss the risks of drinking and distracted driving.

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!

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.
