Middlesex County motorcycle accident attorneys
Middlesex County is one of Virginia’s smaller counties, with only about 11,000 permanent residents. It’s a rural, coastal area, and a great place to explore on a motorcycle.
While getting off George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17) and cruising through this section of the Old Dominion on Route 33 is a great experience, the fact remains that motorcycling can be dangerous. In 2017, more than 1,670 motorcycle accidents resulted in injury, and 108 resulted in death in Virginia, according to Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles.
Middlesex alone saw two of those injury accidents. Most motorcyclists are fully aware of the dangers involved in riding, and they exercise extra care on their bikes. Unfortunately, that’s not always enough to keep them safe.
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver or unsafe road conditions, you should contact an experienced Middlesex County accident attorney.
Our legal team at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys takes motorcyclist rights seriously, and we’ll work smarter to get you and your family the financial compensation you need following an accident. Both John Singleton and Ken Gibson have good relationships with our local insurance adjusters, but we also have decades of trial experience to put to good use if a big, nationwide insurer denies your claim.

Because motorcyclists don’t have the outer protection that drivers of other motor vehicles have, their collisions usually result in more serious injuries. As a result, riders often suffer greater financial losses as well. Through our experience handling motorcycle accidents on the Middle Peninsula, we at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys are well aware of this, and we will fight to get you the compensation you need, which may include:
- Current medical bills
- Future medical bills related to the accident
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent injury or disability
- Emotional trauma
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of a limb
- Household and vehicle modifications to accommodate your injury (wheelchair ramps, etc.)
- Lost wages from missed work
- Loss of career or earning potential
If a motorcycle crash caused the death of your loved one, we’ll work to get you wrongful death compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of future income and benefits, loss of marital consortium, and more. We want to make sure you and your family are taken care of.
As mentioned earlier, motorcycle crashes usually result in serious injuries. If you’ve been in a motorcycle wreck, you’re going to be in pain, may have trouble getting around, or possibly still be in the hospital. The last thing you’re going to want to do is conduct a thorough investigation of the accident. Plus, the average person (even the average lawyer!) has no idea how to conduct a proper motorcycle accident investigation.
As experienced motorcycle accident attorneys who actually live here, we will leave no stone unturned in talking to witnesses, accumulating medical and vehicle evidence, examining police reports and talking with the officers, and visiting the site of the accident. If we need to, we’ll consult medical experts and accident reconstruction specialists.
In addition, a motorcycle accident claim will involve dealing with the responsible party’s insurance company. Insurance companies employ teams of lawyers whose job is to deny or diminish claims made against their clients, thus reducing the amount of money they pay out. As experienced accident attorneys, we’ve dealt with insurance companies before. We will not be swayed by their claims that their client wasn’t at fault, or your injuries aren’t that bad.
GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys has successfully resolved numerous accident claims, and we will put our combined knowledge and skills to work on your case. Plus, our work costs you nothing upfront. We only get paid if we win you the compensation you deserve. For a free consultation, call (804) 413-6777 today.
It costs you nothing for our firm to represent you. We only get paid when you do. Learn more
