Got travel plans for Thanksgiving? If so, you’re probably like most Americans and are skipping the airport and packing up the car instead due to COVID-19 concerns. Traffic has been down throughout much of 2020 due to the pandemic, and while experts recommend limiting in-person get-togethers, there will still likely be heavy traffic on Tennessee’s roads in a few weeks.
Holiday weekends are always among the most dangerous times for drivers in America due to more people on the road than usual. In addition, drivers are often flustered, stressed, and trying to get to their destinations as quickly as possible. All of that combines to create a potentially dangerous environment for you and your loved ones.
You can reduce your risks this holiday season by:
Avoiding distractions—Appoint someone else to be in charge of text messages, phone calls, and looking up directions.
Not speeding—Leave early to give yourself plenty of time to make it to your family get-together.
Checking your vehicle before you go—The last thing you want to deal with on your holiday road trip is a dead battery, a flat tire, broken windshield wiper, or burned out headlight!
Mapping your route in advance—Road work is often canceled or minimized during holiday travel, but road closures and lane shut downs often persist. Map your route in advance to avoid slowdowns, bottlenecks, and dangerous areas.
Packing supplies—Thanksgiving weather is usually mild in TN, but if you’re traveling north, you could hit snow and ice. Pack your vehicle with blankets, food, and water in case you get stranded.
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

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.
