If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, you likely have many questions about what to do next to protect your rights. We have compiled a list of 5 commonly asked questions following car accidents, but that doesn't even touch the iceburg of the many questions you will have after a car accident. At Doane Law Office, LLC, in Jeffersonville, Indiana, we can provide you with additional answers to your unique questions and concerns during your free consultation.
I have the at-fault driver's insurance information: Do I submit my claim to that company?
No. You need to file your claim with your own insurance provider. Your insurance company will want the other driver's insurance information.
The other insurance company is asking for my medical records: What do I do?
Insurance adjusters and claims representatives are trained to gather information to protect the insurance companies' interests. The adjusters are looking for information to reduce or deny your claim. If the other insurance company is asking you to provide a statement or your medical records, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney for guidance and advice. When you work with Doane Law Office, LLC, we will deal with the insurance companies on your behalf.
I did not get medical attention after the accident, but today I am feeling pain: What do I do now?
You need to take care of your health and well-being. In the immediate aftermath of an accident, the effects of the accident may not always be apparent. Many people who have been injured in a car accident wake up the next morning, or days later, feeling pain for the first time. Symptoms of a car accident injury may start after a delay. You need to seek medical attention to begin your road to physical recovery.

- Your lost wages
- The impact your injuries may have on your future income
- The impact on personal activities that you are no longer able to enjoy
- The pain and suffering you have experienced
