If you can throw a stone across the Ohio River, you can hit Louisville from New Albany, IN. New Albany is actually considered part of the Louisville Metropolitan Statistical Area. Some people call the area “Kentuckyiana.” The city has an estimated population of nearly 37,000, and it’s the county seat of Floyd County.

Along with smaller state highways like Indiana 111 and 150, New Albany is just a few minutes from Interstate Highways 64 and 265, and those roadways will take you anywhere in the continental United States that you want to travel to.

Don’t Let Them Devalue Your Claim
It doesn’t matter if your accident and injuries arose in Indiana, Kentucky or anywhere else. The company that insures the person who caused your accident only wants to pay out as little as possible on your injury claim. It’s going to try to use every legal tactic to try to devalue your claim. That’s how insurance companies keep the money that people pay them for premiums. They take as much cash as possible in, and then they pay out as little as possible.

Always be aware of the fact that they have highly trained claims representatives and defense attorneys who work for them. Our goal is to maximize any proceeds that you might receive as compensation for your injuries.
