Is your dream car the best option for you?

By Ken Gibson on September 15, 2020

Have you ever debated between buying the car of your dreams and getting the most affordable option instead? Have you given up your goal of off-roading adventures in a jeep and bought a pickup for work?   Or did you choose the SUV to keep up with your growing family, instead of the Mustang you really wanted?

Well, beyond the obvious pros and cons of these choices, each of these vehicles also brings its own safety risks and rewards if you are ever in an accident. But how do know what those safety risks are so that you can make an even more informed decision?

Can a car wreck affect my hearing?

By John Singleton on September 1, 2020

Hearing loss is an often-ignored injury that can occur in a car accident. That’s why it’s important to know that even minor damage to your hearing can develop into a lasting medical condition.

By Ken Gibson on August 18, 2020

We all know that a hospital visit requires a ton of paperwork, and this can be annoying if you were just in an auto accident.

How a personal injury attorney can help with your own insurance company after an accident

By Ken Gibson on July 14, 2020

When we pay car insurance premiums, we expect our insurance company to have our backs if we are ever in an accident, especially if the other driver was at fault. But the truth is that car insurance companies are not charitable organizations; instead, they are focused on profits. To them, if they pay out every claim at maximum, they will experience lower profits that year. So, to keep their profits high and costs low, insurance companies will often devalue a claim, or outright reject it, even if a customer has a clear case for compensation.

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.

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.
