Ken dishes on “settlement mills” – what they are and how you can avoid them

By Beth Gibson on February 9, 2019

Lawyers are everywhere. They’re on TV, promising you money—fast! They advertise all over the Internet, telling you to call toll-free numbers like “SU4-CASH, CAR-HURT, WIN-CASH, WIN-4YOU, 1RU-HURT, UIN-PAIN,” and more. But how legitimate are these law firms?

What Virginia’s “contributory negligence” laws mean to you

By John Singleton on December 26, 2018

“Negligence” is a word lawyers use a lot. But what does it mean?

How medpay can help you after a car crash

By Ken Gibson on December 17, 2018

Medical bills are the No. 1 cause of bankruptcy in the United States, according to many experts. After all, few people plan on having sky-high medical bills, and no one expects to get seriously injured.

Fortunately, Virginia has a type of insurance that may help if you or your family member are injured in an accident. This coverage may already be on your auto insurance policy under the name “medical payments coverage,” or “medpay.”

Drowsy driving is more dangerous than you think

By John Singleton on November 5, 2018

Why GibsonSingleton hopes you’ll observe Drowsy Driving Prevention Week

Sixty percent of Americans have driven while sleepy in the past year, while 37 percent admitted having fallen asleep behind the wheel, according to the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep in America poll.
