Dealing with medical expenses after an accident—5 steps to guide you

By John Singleton on June 30, 2020

After an accident, most victims worry about the looming medical bills they will have to pay. Most people live paycheck to paycheck, so having to take time off from work severely limits their ability to cover their medical expenses. Often, accident victims will delay treatment—either refusing a trip to the emergency room (ER) or waiting to see their primary care physician—because they do not want to deal with the financial stress they believe will follow.

See the right doctors after your car accident – right away

By Ken Gibson on June 16, 2020

Seeking medical attention is one of the most important steps you can take after a car accident, even if you don’t think you have a serious injury.

What’s the story on wrecks with delivery drivers?

By John Singleton on June 2, 2020

Quick delivery is a mainstay of our culture now, whether it’s from Amazon, FedEx Express, or UPS. These delivery services have become especially important during Virginia’s Stay at Home Order, because we in the Commonwealth need a safe way to order and receive essential goods. In addition, many e-commerce sites, from independent artists to healthy food advocates, rely on delivery services to support their businesses. But as important as fast delivery is, these services should be operated safely to prevent serious accidents.

By John Singleton on May 13, 2020

How can I prevent a boating accident from happening?

By Beth Gibson on April 29, 2020

Boating in Eastern Virginia – whether by river, bay, or ocean – is an epic pastime. Many of us have grown up enjoying the water, learning to swim, fish, and handle boats since childhood. But even the most experienced boater can be in an accident. Maybe another boat is speeding by with a driver who is having a beer, ending in a collision. Or perhaps you get caught in bad weather and run aground. Or maybe one of your passengers unexpectedly falls overboard.

By John Singleton on April 12, 2020

Whether you’ve tripped and fallen down a flight of broken stairs or you were hit by a car while crossing the street, the weight of your injuries is probably pressing down on you.

Safe driving tips for Virginia’s rural roads

By Ken Gibson on April 7, 2020

When you imagine a car accident, you might think of two or more cars, one being drunk or distracted, on a busy highway or at a crowded intersection. While this is a common scenario, car accidents happen just as often on a rural road as in a heavily trafficked urban center. Furthermore, the remote nature of rural roads can make it difficult for emergency services to respond quickly, sometimes resulting in greater loss of life.
