Pedestrian Struck by Motorist in Tennessee Accident
The TN pedestrian accident took place around 4:10 pm on August 2, during the afternoon rush hour as motorists were returning home from work. According to officers with the Corbin Police Department, Brooke Mitchell of Corbin was driving her Infinity four-door sedan on Master Street, heading towards downtown, when Dugger stepped out in front of her vehicle. Mitchell told police that she slammed on the brakes before striking Dugger, but Dugger was hit, rolled up onto the hood and then fell in front of the Infinity. Dugger told the investigating officer, Lt. Glenn Taylor, that she didn’t see Mitchell’s car when she stepped out into the road. Far too often, serious and even fatal pedestrian accidents take place in Tennessee and throughout the country because motorists fail to keep a lookout for pedestrians on the roadway.

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
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.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
