Motor Vehicle Crashes: Be Sure to Keep the “Exchange of Information” Form from a Non-Reportable Accident

R. Clayton Allen, Mechanicsville, VA Personal Injury Lawyer

Author: R. Clayton Allen, Mechanicsville, VA Personal Injury Lawyer

In Virginia, a law enforcement officer is required to complete a Police Crash Report (Form FR300P)[1] only if there is a complaint of injury, or if the total property damage exceeds $1,500.00.[2] The officer is required to file a copy of their report with the Virginia DMV within 24 hours of completing his or her investigation.[3] When you are involved in a relatively minor automobile accident with property damage to the vehicles estimated at less than $1,500 and there are no injuries reported at the scene, the officer will most likely designate your accident as “non reportable”. When that happens, rather than complete the Police Crash…

I Won My Jury Trial, But My Case Has Been Appealed! Now What?

By: Malcolm P. McConnell, III

In Virginia, virtually any judgment from a jury trial can be appealed to our Supreme Court. But the Supreme Court does not agree to hear every case that is appealed. So, if your personal injury verdict and judgment are appealed, what can you expect?

The purpose of most appeals is to persuade the Supreme Court of Virginia that the trial court did something wrong – i.e., made a decision before, during or after the trial which was legally incorrect and that the wrong decision resulted in the wrong outcome of the case. The person complaining of the mistake asks the Supreme Court to reverse that incorrect decision. Sometimes that reversal may mean the end of a case, or…

Motor Vehicle Insurance - What is a "Claims Reserve" and why is it important?

By: Kathleen Smith (Llewelyn-Duncan) - Fredericksburg Personal Injury Attorney

Many of us begin the new year with a resolution to save money, and a logical first step to achieving this goal is to create (and stick to) a budget.   Insurance companies use a similar approach to estimate what claims will cost for the year.  Throughout the year they collect premiums, but for planning purposes they need to estimate how much of that they will pay out for claims.  The “reserve” is an estimate of what an individual claim will cost, and that amount of money is set aside (or reserved) in order to pay that claim.  By adding all the reserves together for all of the individual claims, the company can estimate what they…

Blog-PCG.jpg

Author: P. Christopher Guedri - Richmond, VA Personal Injury Lawyer

Driving requires the simultaneous use of multiple skills: focus and attention, coordination, as well as split-second decision making. When any one of those skills is compromised due to distractions behind the wheel, the driver immediately becomes more likely to be involved in a car accident. Distracted driving is extremely dangerous and causes thousands of accidents annuallyon our nation's roads and highways.

New Research on Sports Related Concussions in Children & Young Adults

Author: Courtney Van Winkle, Brain Injury Attorney

Recent news reports about a Pop Warner football game in which five children suffered concussions have brought attention to a longstanding and under-appreciated problem in youth contact sports.   In a game played on September 5, 2012, five boys aged 10 to 12 years old were so severely injured that they missed various amounts of school, despite substantial rule changes designed to prevent such injuries instituted only months before by the Pop Warner Football League.[1]   The league officers in attendance and the referees did not enforce the new protective rules; therefore, they received sanctions which included suspensions.

Football has attracted…
