We’re Here for Injured Pedestrians in Nashville

Nashville is one of the most pedestrian-heavy cities in the South. Broadway, Second Avenue, Riverfront Park, 12 South, the Gulch, and Hillsboro Village are just a few areas of our great city that welcome and accommodate pedestrians. And while walking is a great way to get exercise and enjoy the sights and sounds of Music City, it isn’t always safe.

Even when you stick to sidewalks and crosswalks, you may still be at risk of serious accidents. When drivers speed or aren’t paying attention to the road, they’re much more likely to strike pedestrians. Even the smallest vehicles can seriously injure or even kill pedestrians during collisions, making it imperative for both pedestrians and drivers to stay alert, cautious, and aware of their surroundings.

Despite the fact that pedestrians are virtually helpless against vehicles, they are often blamed for accidents. Drivers can claim that a pedestrian “came out of nowhere” and their defense often works—especially if the crash occurred in an area where sidewalks and crosswalks aren’t installed. This results in pedestrians being on the hook for their own huge medical bills and years of lost wages.

At Ponce Law, we recognize how important it is for cities like ours to be pedestrian-friendly. When pedestrians are injured and denied compensation, it hurts our entire community. Our Nashville pedestrian accident lawyers work hard to help injured pedestrians get maximum compensation, and can help you, too. Contact us today for a free consultation if you were struck by a vehicle while walking in Middle Tennessee.
