Virginia Personal Injury Blog
It’s June 13, 2019, and you know what that means… it’s time for our law firm to announce who won the Texts=Wrecks Scholarship 2019!
We asked for solutions to combat dangerous, drunk, and distracted driving in our lives. Since motor vehicle crashes are still the leading cause of death for teenagers in the U.S., this issue is as important now as it was decades ago. But we’re glad to say young drivers are also leading the charge to change things at the local level! Just take a look at our finalists.
Distracted driving claimed the lives of at least 6,227 pedestrians last year across the United States, and that’s not counting the number of people who were in cars. The worst part is, most of these accidents were likely due to a smartphone, which means they were 100 percent preventable!
When you become a lawyer, you hear a lot of lawyer jokes. In fact, “attorney” is probably one of the least popular professions in America. Only 18 percent of Americans feel that lawyers contribute to society, according to a Pew Research Center poll. That was down from 2009, when 23 percent did. But we’d bet that none of the people surveyed worked with GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys.
Virginia is a “fault” state after a car crash, which means the person at-fault for the accident needs to pay for the costs of the accident. In a car accident claim, you’re usually going to be seeking compensation from the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company.
In this interview, John Singleton, partner at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, explains how an insurance company decides whether to fight a claim, and how hard they are willing to fight.
GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys has a “no-fee guarantee,” meaning that if you’re injured in an accident and want us to represent you, you pay nothing upfront to file a personal injury claim. During a recent interview, partner Ken Gibson explained:
If you were injured in an accident and want to file a personal injury lawsuit, you’re probably wondering how long it will take to get the compensation you deserve. In a recent interview, Ken Gibson and John Singleton tackled that question.
GibsonSingleton says: “Say no to distracted driving, say yes to safer driving, and win our scholarship!”
It’s that time of year again! We at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys are kicking off prom and graduation season a little early with our Texts=Wrecks Scholarship 2019.
The prize is $1,000 for college expenses, and the scholarship is open to any 3.0-GPA-or-above student in the United States. Whether you were born and grew up here, are a legal permanent resident, or are a DACA recipient, you are welcome to apply. The deadline is May 16, 2019, and we’ll announce our winner on June 13.
Lawyers are everywhere. They’re on TV, promising you money—fast! They advertise all over the Internet, telling you to call toll-free numbers like “SU4-CASH, CAR-HURT, WIN-CASH, WIN-4YOU, 1RU-HURT, UIN-PAIN,” and more. But how legitimate are these law firms? Can they make good on their promises? Or are they what’s known as “settlement mills”?
In a recent interview, Ken Gibson of GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys spoke about settlement mills and why people should avoid them.
When people come to GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys for help, most think they’re “covered” by their auto insurance company. But are they? Here’s what personal injury lawyers Ken Gibson and John Singleton had to say:
Our annual Coat Drive collected more than 640 coats from generous donors this fall.
We then gave many of the coats to the Salvation Army of Gloucester, the Gloucester United for Emergency Shelter Team (GUEST), and the Hampton Veterans Administration Medical Center, which serves many homeless veterans. This year, we also gave coats to LINK of Hampton Roads, which helps men, women, and children in crisis or with basic unmet needs.
