If you have been injured through someone else’s negligence, how much your case is worth will depend on several factors. There’s no such thing as a “personal injury loss calculator” — every case is different.
If you were involved in a crash and your airbags did not deploy, you may be wondering why they didn’t. Airbags are not designed to deploy in every collision – only in certain types of accidents.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has long been a topic of sci-fi films and novels that deal with futuristic societies. You may think we are decades away from computers running the world, but in some cases, computers already do make the decisions. Big insurance companies already use AI and computer software to handle accident claims. In an ideal world, this would make the claims process easier after an accident and help you get your bills paid faster. But the harsh truth is that insurance companies use this software to save themselves money.
Here at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we work to educate our neighbors in Virginia about the dangers of distracted driving through our annual “Texts=Wrecks” Campaign. But there is another danger we should all be aware of, and that’s distracted walking.
A single car accident is enough to bankrupt the average person. You may be left with expensive medical bills, weeks to months out of work, and have to replace your car.
Self-driving cars may sound like science fiction, but in Virginia, they are already a reality. Over the past decade, auto manufacturers and tech companies have moved into the Commonwealth to develop futuristic cars. In fact, Fairfax County has its own self-driving shuttle service, and researchers are testing self-driving technologies every day at Virginia Tech.
Riding a moped can be fun, whether you’re zipping around your neighborhood, running errands, or zooming around a college campus. However, as with any vehicle, you need to know how to keep safe on the road.
Impatience may not immediately come to mind when you think about car wrecks, but an impatient driver can be just as dangerous as a distracted one. Impatience can lead to speeding, tailgating, illegal lane changes, even road rage, all of which cause collisions. How can impatient driving affect you?
Drivers, start using Bluetooth or storing your cell phone out of reach. In just a few weeks, it will be illegal for anyone to hold a cell phone while driving in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This new law, as outlined in House Bill 874, was signed by Governor Ralph Northam in July, and it goes into effect on January 1, 2021.
Although most motorcycle accidents cause serious injuries and trauma, many riders can’t wait to get back on the road again. They may send their bike to a repair shop or decide to scrap it and start over. But often, they will quickly agree to a payment for property damage and injury from the insurance provider.
