CarCrash11A 54-year-old Tennessee man was killed and three of his grandchildren sustained injuries recently when another driver forced their vehicle into a ditch, in what TN police are investigating as a road rage incident. According to authorities, the Tennessee man was driving his pickup truck around 6:45 a.m., when another driver ran his car off the road and then left the scene of the accident. The victim, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt because of a medical condition, was thrown from the vehicle while his grandchildren, ages 7, 8 and 14, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. If you have sustained injuries in a Tennessee accident, or lost a loved one in such an accident, contact our experienced car accident attorneys at Michael D. Ponce & Associates to discuss your legal options. With the help of Michael D. Ponce and his team of qualified personal injury attorneys, you can ensure that your legal rights are protected and pursue the compensation you are entitled to.

Long-Term Consequences of TN Car Accidents

Although the grandchildren of the Tennessee man killed in the crash were not seriously hurt, they were transported to a hospital for treatment. In some cases of TN car accidents, the resulting injuries can be long-lasting and the cost of medical treatment and long-term care can put a significant financial burden on the victim and his or her family. Tennessee car accidents that result in fatality are especially devastating, particularly when the at-fault driver flees the scene of the accident and cannot be located. While the police continue to investigate this Tennessee road rage accident, the family of the deceased man and his grandchildren are left to wonder if the driver who caused the accident will ever be held accountable for his or her actions. A spokesperson for the police department investigating the crime has reported that the driver of the other vehicle could face “some type of homicide charge” due to the fact that there is a criminal element involved in the incident.

Contact Our Car Accident Attorneys for Legal Help

Victims injured in Tennessee hit-and-run accidents or crashes such as this fatal accident caused by road rage, in which the other driver flees the scene, are in a unique situation, since the at-fault driver may never be located. If the driver who caused the accident is arrested by law enforcement, the family of the man who was killed and the children who were injured may have grounds to file a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit, in order to hold the driver accountable for the injuries and fatality resulting from the accident. If the driver isn’t located however, or if the driver is uninsured, the accident victims may be able to pursue compensation through the uninsured motorist clause of their car insurance policy. If you have suffered injuries in a Tennessee car accident, contact our experienced car accident attorneys at Michael D. Ponce & Associates today. With our skilled personal injury attorneys on your side, you can seek fair and timely reimbursement for your injuries and protect yourself from further harm.

    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!

    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.
