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.”

Coat drive on track to help more people this year

By Beth Gibson on December 6, 2018

Thanks to our generous community, our 2018 coat drive has already received and distributed 402 coats!

Just last week, members of First Morning Star Baptist Church in Bena, VA, donated 45 coats. Church member Edward Washington brought them in, and asked that as many as possible go to the Gloucester United Emergency Shelter Team (GUEST). Mr. Washington’s timing was perfect because GUEST had some immediate needs, including a family of eight planning to enter the shelter shortly.

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.

We hear a lot about the dangers of drunk driving, drugged driving, speeding, and distracted driving, but not much about fatigued driving. The truth is that drowsy driving can be every bit as dangerous.

Remember your seat belt…

By John Singleton on October 24, 2018

It can save you and those you love

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Traffic accidents resulted in more than 37,461 fatalities and 2.2 million injuries in 2016 alone. That’s about 102 people killed each day in car crashes—or one person every 14 minutes!

Yet a simple, highly effective measure you can take to prevent injury and death on America’s roads is using your safety belt. Safety belts have been required in all new vehicles sold in the U.S. since 1968, and most states require all vehicle occupants to wear them.
