Middle Tennessee has gotten it’s share of snow and ice this week, and that means it’s time to go sledding. The Nashville personal injury lawyers with Ponce Law would like to remind you that although sledding can be a fun way to pass the time, the activity also comes with some risks.
A combination of downhill speed and the inability to stop on slick surfaces can make sledding especially dangerous. Some of the injuries associated with sledding include broken bones, neck and spinal cord injuries, lacerations, and brain injuries.
To put into perspective just how common sledding injuries can be, WKRN 2 News reports that more than 28 children in Middle Tennessee were transported to the emergency room over the past few days due to sledding injuries.
Sledding accidents have also prompted premises liability concerns in the past. In Tennessee, if a person suffers an injury while sledding on your property and you fail to warn them of the risks they may face, you can be held responsible for covering the costs of their care and damages.
In order to avoid sledding injuries, children are encouraged to wear helmets when sliding downhill. You should also choose the location where you sled carefully. Stay in the park or yard and avoid sliding down asphalt that may be iced over.
We hope these tips help to keep you and your loved ones safe during the winter blast of 2015!

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.
