Congratulations to our 2023 “Texts=Wrecks” scholarship winner!
At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we have been awarding our annual $1,000 “Text=Wrecks” scholarship to an outstanding college-bound student every year since 2018. We love recognizing aspiring scholars while also emphasizing the need to stop texting while driving.
We spent a lot of time reading this year’s essays. Our entrants deserve so much credit for their valuable suggestions about preventing texting while driving and also for their work to make our Virginia communities safer for everyone.
We’re excited to announce our 2023 “Texts=Wrecks” scholarship finalists
At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we’re thrilled by the response we received to this year’s “Texts=Wrecks” college scholarship. Hundreds of students from across Virginia submitted essays explaining how they try to save lives and build a brighter future for everyone by making wise decisions.
Keep your family safe this July 4th!
We Virginians are patriotic, and we love to celebrate Independence Day. It’s a great time to get together with friends and family and enjoy outdoor activities, like picnics, swimming, parades, and fireworks.
Celebrating Independence Day is fun, but it’s also one of the most dangerous holidays of the year. The combination of drinking, driving, water sports, and fireworks leads to hundreds of fatalities and thousands of emergency room visits annually.

The NTSB is investigating a major Virginia truck accident in Yorktown: Here’s what you need to know
A tragic collision along Interstate 64 in York County is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The NTSB mainly investigates airline crashes, but sometimes will investigate accidents involving other types of transportation.
An NTSB investigation of a non-airline crash generally occurs when there were unusual circumstances or when the crash has implications for transportation policy.
Yes, tractors and farming vehicles have the right away in Virginia. How can you stay safe on the road with them?
Virginia has changed a lot over the last 20 years. Our population has grown by more than 1.5 million, and our economy continues to diversify and expand. But agriculture is still the largest industry in the Commonwealth. What does that mean for drivers?
More people means more traffic, and more traffic increases the chances of cars coming into contact with farming equipment on Virginia roads, especially in rural areas.
Should I share my dashcam footage after an accident in Virginia?
Security cameras are becoming more prevalent in our world today. Many businesses have cameras that record what’s happening in and around their premises 24/7, while video surveillance systems do the same at many homes.
Some may find it alarming that our daily activities are constantly being recorded, but security cameras can offer some benefits. Bad actors are less likely to commit a crime when they know they’re being watched.
Make sure you have these important phone numbers at your fingertips
