Frequently Asked Questions

Types of Wrongful Death Cases

We handle many types of wrongful death cases that are caused by negligence, such as:

  • Car Accidents
    Being a safe driver requires remaining attentive, focused, and safety-conscious from the moment you start your vehicle until the moment you put it into park at your destination. However, many drivers aren’t committed to safety when they get behind the wheel. Intoxicated, distracted, or reckless drivers can be held liable if they cause accidents that result in other people’s deaths.
  • Bus Accidents
    Bus drivers are held to high safety standards for their conduct, as buses may carry dozens of passengers. When bus drivers violate traffic laws or engage in unsafe practices, such as texting while driving, driving while impaired, or speeding, they can put innocent people in danger and cause potentially fatal crashes. When that happens, we hold them or their employers accountable.
  • Motorcycle Accidents
    Motorcyclists face certain risks that aren’t always present for those traveling on four wheels. However, motorcyclists shouldn’t need to face additional unnecessary dangers caused by negligent drivers. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to take extra precautions around motorcyclists by turning left in front of them, running them off the road, or following them too closely. Motorcycle accidents are often fatal, and it’s our goal to help families get compensation after deadly crashes.
  • Railroad Accidents
    Many railroads pass through residential and urban areas. Although drivers, pedestrians, and other people on the road are supposed to be protected from trains by crossing guards, barriers, alarms, and other equipment, many people die in railroad accidents every year. If your loved one was killed while walking, driving, or riding near a train, you may be eligible for compensation.
  • Trucking Accidents
    Truck drivers, truck manufacturers, and trucking companies may be careless during the operation, design, and maintenance of trucks. If their negligence leads to fatal accidents, they may be responsible for paying for the victim and families’ expenses.
  • Pedestrian Accidents
    All motorists must remain alert to avoid pedestrians—especially when driving near crosswalks. When drivers are distracted or driving too fast, pedestrians can suffer fatal consequences. These negligent drivers can be held liable for the victims’ medical bills and funeral costs.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents
    Pools can be great places to spend summer days, but they can also be deadly—especially for children. When pools aren’t properly fenced in or swimmers aren’t properly supervised, serious injuries and even death can occur. Our legal team fights for the rights of families who lost loved ones because of unsafe conditions in or around swimming pools.
  • Dog Bite Accidents
    Most dogs pose no threat to people, but some can bite without warning or a previous history of aggression. Dogs have long, sharp teeth, and some breeds are capable of causing significant damage and injuries to victims. People who are bitten by dogs face complications such as profuse bleeding and infection—both of which can be fatal. At Ponce Law, we hold negligent dog owners accountable when their pets injure or kill.

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.
