Through Oct. 29, 2018, 856 people lost their lives in auto accidents in Tennessee. On that same date in 2019, that number increased to 935. And in 2020, it increased again to 980. What’s the cause of this increase—especially considering that traffic volumes have been down due to COVID-19?

Many of the same factors that were at play in 2018 and 2019 were also at play throughout 2020. Namely, speeding, drunk driving, and distracted driving. But 2020 has had another added factor: driver complacency. What does this mean?

Although traffic volumes have been lighter for most of 2020, drivers still face risks, but of a different kind due to not paying as close attention or being as careful behind the wheel. When many drivers look around and see less traffic on their daily commutes, they may be more likely to speed, text while driving, or even drive while impaired. Or they may follow too closely, drift in their lanes, or fail to stop at stop signs.

There’s no excuse for not taking driver safety seriously. Even if you’re the only driver on the road, you still need to be alert, cautious, and keeping your eyes glued to the road ahead. When drivers fail to take their roles and responsibility seriously, they put themselves, their passengers, and others at risk. 2020’s fatal traffic accident statistics support this!

If you or someone you love was hurt or killed in a crash, you need a legal advocate right away. Tennessee’s time limit for filing injury claims is just one year, so you need to act fast. The Nashville auto accident lawyers at Ponce Law are ready to help you get the money you’re owed, so call today.

    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.
