Middlesex County Car Accident Lawyers
Local attorneys can help after a crash in Middlesex County
Like most counties along Virginia’s coast, Middlesex County is full of winding roads. We also have unpredictable weather. This combination can lead to car accidents - many resulting in serious injuries or worse.
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a car accident with another vehicle in Middlesex County, you may be entitled to compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
Where are the most crashes in Middlesex?
Our team at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys has seen many crashes on the highways in this area, especially along General Puller Highway, Route 33. U.S. Route 17 to the northwest and State Route 3 leading up to the Rappahannock River also have many crashes. But, you can always have an accident on a backcountry road as well.
What often causes wrecks here?
Despite the known dangers, many drivers speed along these roadways. Many others drive while distracted by mobile devices - a practice our law firm is working within our community to eliminate. Still, people do drive while distracted, and they cause accidents.
How are you covered after a car crash?
Just because another driver hits you doesn’t mean that his insurance company will offer you a fair settlement. In fact, the other drive may not have insurance.
If you’re a visitor to the area, know that Virginia doesn’t require drivers to carry car insurance (if the car owner pays a $500 uninsured motorist fee). So if you’re in an accident with an uninsured driver, you may have to file a lawsuit to get payment for your medical bills, car repairs, lost wages, and more.
In either situation, having an experienced Middlesex County car accident attorney on your side is important. Our team at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys has made it our mission to help our neighbors (and our guests) in Eastern Virginia. Our partner, John Singleton, has worked for big insurance companies, so we know the strategies they can use and how to counter them.

How does my uninsured/underinsured insurance work if I’m in a wreck?
Because the person who hits you may not have any insurance, Virginia requires insured drivers to carry uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. This type of coverage is meant to pay for your vehicle repairs and medical bills if the at-fault driver is uninsured, or the amount of compensation she owes you exceeds her policy limits.
While this sounds like a good deal, there’s no guarantee that your insurance company will pay you a fair amount for your bills either. After all, insurance companies are businesses, and they seek to make a profit. That’s why many insurance companies will offer you a "lowball" estimate first, hoping you just take it.
Our Middlesex County personal injury attorneys know many local insurance adjusters. We often work with them – giving them undeniable evidence and research we’ve gathered in each case – to get accident victims the actual money they need to recover.
