As a doctor, you know how to keep yourself healthy. You know how to eat right, you exercise regularly, and you get all the recommended medical screening tests. However, your life may still be at risk as you travel to and from work.

Doctors Need to Stay Safe While Commuting

You may be in excellent health; however, your life may still be at risk while you are commuting to and from work if you:

  • Are tired. A recent study from the Mayo Clinic found that 11% of interns report getting into car accidents while training and 43% report near-miss accidents. Fatigue can significantly impact your ability to drive safely and should always be considered before you get behind the wheel.
  • Use your cell phone. You may have doctors, patients, friends, and relatives waiting for return calls from you. It is tempting to use your time in the car to make these calls. However, using a cell phone while driving can result in a serious distracted driving crash.
  • Eat a meal. You are understandably busy, and you may not have had time to eat at work. However, eating a meal can be distracting and result in a serious car accident. Accordingly, it is important to eat before you leave work or when you reach your destination.

You know better than most the serious consequences of a Virginia car accident. Thus, it is important to take all steps possible to prevent such accident injuries.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
