Negligence and negligent driving can cause drivers, passengers, and pedestrians physical, emotional, and financial damages. There are a host of reasons why a driver can be declared as negligent such as the following:
• Texting while driving
• Driving while fatigued
• Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
• Failing to yield the right-of-way
• Driving on the wrong side of the road
Attorney Andrew B. Jones is a trusted, experienced automobile accident attorney who believes no one should be forced to suffer because of another driver’s negligence.

The Most Common Types of Automobile Accident Injuries
• Cuts and bruises
• Fractures and broken bones
• Head and neck injuries
• Knee injuries
• Back injuries
• Spinal cord injuries
• Internal bleeding
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Some of these injuries, such as back or neck injuries, may not be apparent directly after the accident, and may show up days or weeks following the accident. Look out for warning signs that you have an injury due to the accident, such as dizziness, pain and discomfort. These delayed symptoms of injury are the reason that you should seek medical treatment immediately after an automobile accident even if you think you were not injured. Without medical records to back your claim, it will be harder to prove the accident caused the injuries.
What You Should Do After an Automobile Accident in Indiana
If you or a loved one are involved in an automobile accident in Indiana, the first thing to do is remain calm, call 911 and get medical treatment. The police will file a police report, which will serve as critical evidence in your automobile accident claim. If possible, exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver as well as the names and contact information of any witnesses. Take photographs of your injuries, the accident scene, and damage to the vehicles. If you cannot get the necessary information or take pictures, ask someone to help collect the information for you.
All medical treatment related to the accident will help support your accident claim, including medical records of your doctor visits, prescribed medications, radiological tests, procedures, surgeries, and rehabilitation. Make sure you accurately describe your injuries and symptoms to your medical providers. Be careful to follow all of your doctor’s recommendations for treatment and therapy.
An insurance claims adjuster from the other driver’s insurance company will be in contact with you very shortly after the accident. The claims adjuster has the responsibility to investigate the accident and negotiate the claim. Do not speak with the adjuster or anyone else from the insurance company without legal representation.
It is important that you notify your insurance company of the automobile accident within 24 hours of the accident. However, do not to sign any documents, discuss liability, or agree to an insurance settlement without a personal injury attorney representing you.
