hwyaccidentWith the influx of motorists expected to hit Tennessee this summer, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) is reminding drivers to slow down and drive attentively in work zones. Motorists in Tennessee admit that construction zones are a driving distraction that makes them nervous when on Tennessee roadways. If you have been injured in a car accident in Tennessee, consult our skilled car accident lawyers at Atkins & Markoff to discuss your legal options. You may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person found at-fault in the accident, in order to pursue financial compensation for your injuries and medical bills. Our law firm is located in Nashville, and our attorneys can help you seek fair and timely reimbursement and protect yourself from further harm.

Tennessee Car Accidents in Construction Zones

It’s only the beginning of June, and already this week there have been three accidents along I-240 near construction zones in Tennessee. Late Friday morning, a cleanup was still in effect for an accident that took place before rush hour along 240 and Walnut Grove. According to the accident report, a vehicle swerved to miss a car stalled in the roadway and caused the driver of a tractor trailer to swerve and hit a concrete median. The accident happened in a work zone and slowed the flow of traffic for hours. Although the accident wasn’t caused by the work being done to widen 240, it’s the third major accident this week along the same stretch of interstate. Tuesday, the driver of an 18-wheeler was killed when his big rig left I-240 and hit a tree.

A Tennessee Car Accident Attorney Can Help

TDOT tries to limit road work to weekends and at night when there is less traffic, but is warning drivers in Tennessee to pay attention to what’s going on around them on TN roadways. “Watch out for everybody. Don’t be distracted playing with the radio or being on the phone,” said Rick Knoll with TDOT. Unfortunately, the road work along I-240 in Tennessee isn’t expected to be finished until sometime next year. To reduce the risk of TN work zone accidents and the injury and loss of life caused by car accidents in Tennessee, TDOT is asking drivers to be patient, saying it only takes a few second to get through a work zone.

    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!

    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.
