Despite a concerted effort to reduce highway collisions involving commercial tractor-trailers, data indicates the number of injuries and fatalities caused by truck accidents is increasing. In fact, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports that as many as 11 truck accidents happen in the U.S. everyday, causing 100,000 injuries and 4,000 deaths every year.
Failure to Properly Maintain A Vehicle’s Equipment
This leaves many people wondering how trucking companies get away with unsafe operations. The Nashville truck accident lawyers with Michael D. Ponce & Associates explain that loopholes in the law may be part of the answer.
Reports from WRCBTV News explains that trucking companies can avoid penalties for violating safety laws by registering with the Department of Transportation under new names and moving their fleets under new company names.
While the government tries to close this loophole, truck manufacturers are also working to reduce accident rates by improving the safety technology on their vehicles.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville personal injury lawyersrecognize the dangers tractor-trailers pose on the road. That’s why we’re hopeful better safety equipment and stricter laws will help curb the snowballing number of truck accidents in the United States.

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!

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.
