The Nashville Bus Accident Lawyers explain that when a collision occurs involving a large commercial passenger vehicle, faulty equipment is sometimes to blame. This seems to have been the case with a crash that occurred earlier this week in east Tennessee.
According to an article published by The Tennessean, the incident occurred at approximately 2 p.m. along Interstate 40, near mile marker 423. Reports indicate the bus was heading east along the highway when a front tire blew out. This caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle and swerve across the median, into the path of a westbound tractor-trailer and SUV. All three vehicles collided, resulting in eight people being killed and another 14 being seriously injured.
In the wake of the accident, the Red Cross has announced a hotline for assistance to immediate family members of those who were injured or killed in the crash. Also, the North Carolina Highway Patrol has launched an investigation into the incident to determine the exact cause of the accident.
Michael D. Ponce & Associates’ team of Nashville Personal Injury Lawyers are aware of how difficult motor vehicle accidents can be for those involved and their families. That is why the firm would like to send their deepest sympathies to those who knew the victims who were killed. They would also like to wish those who were injured a full recovery.

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.
