As of early November 2017, 19 pedestrians were fatally injured in Nashville, making it the deadliest year on record for pedestrian accidents in Music City. In response, Walk Bike Nashville partnered with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to help make streets, sidewalks, and crosswalks safer for pedestrians throughout the city.

While Nashville pedestrian accidents have claimed 19 lives this year so far, 280 people have been struck by vehicles in Davidson County in 2017. The THSO says the large number of pedestrian accidents can be partially attributed to the increase in population. Many pedestrian accidents in Nashville occur on busy roads, including Gallatin Road, where 10 fatal pedestrian accidents occurred between 2012 and 2016.

At Ponce Law, we want to help keep those in our community safe. You can reduce your risks of being involved in a pedestrian accident by:

Drivers also must do their part to avoid accidents, but they don’t always err on the side of caution. If you or someone you love was hurt by a negligent driver while walking in Middle Tennessee, we want to help you.

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.
