Life in Williamsburg, Virginia
Williamsburg, Virginia, is a beautiful community with lots of fun things to do. With more than 15,000 residents, this scenic community is a great place to raise a family.
Williamsburg was Capitol of the Virginia Colony from 1705 to 1799, and history really comes alive here. In fact, Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s largest living history museum where trained actors recreate America’s early days.
If you enjoy art and architecture, you won’t be disappointed in Williamsburg. The town has striking historical buildings, including the Governor’s Palace, the George Wythe House, and the Bruton Parish Episcopal Church. Founded in 1715, this is where Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Patrick Henry all worshipped. And the church bell is the same one that rang out at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Visiting the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Gallery and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Art Museum are “musts” for art lovers. And you’ll never get bored in Williamsburg because of so many fun things to do. Your family can enjoy a world-class theme park at Busch Gardens, or cool off at Water Country.
Tons of fun outdoor activities are in Williamsburg, including lots of great hiking and biking trails. If you’re looking for a world class golf-course, the Golden Horseshoe offers 45 holes.
When you need a personal injury attorney
An accident that seriously harms you or a loved one can turn your world upside down. It’s important to have compassionate people who work with the highest level of excellence on your side. The insurance agent may act like your friend, but their job is to pay out as little in claims as they can get away with.
Anything you say to an insurance company agent may be used to hurt your claim. And they’re not going to offer a fair claim to someone who isn’t represented by an experienced personal injury attorney.
At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we know how to deal with stingy insurance companies, and we’ve seen all their tricks. Our team will investigate your accident to find out whose negligence caused your injuries. Then we’ll calculate the true cost of your injuries, so we can file an accurate claim with their insurance company.
Your claim will cover the following types of expenses, including the long-term consequences of an accident:
- Emergency room treatment
- Ambulance costs
- Doctor’s office visits
- Reconstructive treatment
- Time missed from work
- Lost earning potential
- In-home care
- Physical therapy
- Home modifications
The types of accidents we handle
At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we’ve handled several types of accidents. And we’re always ready to help if you need help with your accident claim. Some of our more frequent cases include:
- Car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury. More than 65,000 people were injured in car crashes in the United States in a recent year. Careless driver behavior including speeding, driving under the influence, tailgating, and reckless driving often lead to serious injuries. Whiplash, spinal cord injuries, loss of limb, bone fractures, internal injuries, and wrongful death are some of the consequences of auto accidents.
- Truck accidents. A fully loaded big rig truck weighs up to 80,000 pounds. The stopping distance for a truck is much longer than a car, and when a truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the injuries can be devastating. Many truck companies will try to save money by neglecting regular maintenance, overworking their employees, or hiring unqualified drivers. This can have tragic consequences for accident victims.
- Dog bites. More than 800,000 people seek medical assistance for dog bites every year. It often requires extensive treatment to care for a dog bite and remove scarring. Sadly, children are the most likely demographic to be attacked by a dog. Virginia has complicated dog bite laws, but dog owners have an obligation to protect others from vicious dogs, and they must obey local leash laws.
- Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, even when riders are being cautious and obeying the law. Many drivers simply fail to look out for motorcycles, especially at intersections or when they’re merging or changing lanes. Victims of motorcycle accidents often require a great deal of medical care to resume their normal lives; and in some cases, they never completely recover.
- Boating accidents. Boat owners and operators are responsible for protecting the safety of their passengers. That means always having the right safety equipment and providing enough life jackets for everyone on board. Only qualified people should pilot a boat, and nobody who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol should ever attempt it.
