    1. What are common causes of truck accidents?
      At Ponce Law, we have experience handling a variety of truck accident claims, including accidents caused by:

      • Hours of Service (HOS) Violations
        The law requires truckers to take rest breaks after driving for a certain number of hours. Driving too many hours can lead to poor vision, reduced response times, and impaired judgment.
      • Improper Maintenance
        Defective or worn semi truck parts—such as brakes, tires, or hitches—can cause unpredictable handling, longer stopping distances, and other hazards that can cause serious accidents.
      • Unfit Truck Drivers
        Truckers who are intoxicated, unlicensed, or improperly trained put other drivers at risk. Our truck accident lawyers can help hold negligent trucking companies and their drivers responsible for your accident—related expenses.
    2. Who is responsible for my accident?
      Trucks can be owned, maintained, and leased by more than one company, which can make determining who is responsible for an accident complex and confusing. Our experienced legal team can investigate the details of your accident to determine the drivers, trucking companies, and insurance companies responsible for your damages. We’ll fight to help you get the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

      If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, call Ponce Law today. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week—just dial 615-244-4325 or fill out our free initial consultation form.

    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!

    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.
