    Cases We Handle

    Custy Law Firm | Accident & Injury Lawyers handles a variety of personal injury cases including:

    • Car accidents – Car accidents make up the majority of personal injury cases. According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Porter County had the 9th highest number of traffic collisions in Indiana in 2019. This includes 873 non-fatal injuries and seven fatalities. Many of these collisions were caused by drivers who were intoxicated, distracted, speeding, or otherwise negligent.
    • Truck Accidents – Truck accidents can be especially devastating since trucks are significantly larger and heavier than passenger vehicles. Trucking companies and their drivers are bound by strict regulations, and when they fail to follow these regulations, the results can be disastrous.
    • Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcyclists are at an obvious disadvantage in an accident since they don’t have the external protection of a vehicle, a seatbelt, or airbags. For this reason, over 70 percent of motorcyclists who were involved in a collision in Indiana in 2019 were either injured (67%) or killed (4%).
    • Boating accidents – Operating a boat requires skill and good judgment, as any mistakes could be dangerous for passengers on your own boat as well as other boaters. All boaters must exercise caution and take proper steps to avoid accidents.
    • Bicycle accidents – Cars have a responsibility to share the road with bicycles, and when drivers are speeding, intoxicated, or just not paying attention, they can collide with a bicyclist. The bicyclist often suffers injuries that are much more severe than those of the driver of the car.
    • Dog bites – Any dog bite can cause disease or infections, and more severe dog bites can be debilitating. Even dogs that are typically friendly can sometimes behave in unexpected ways. Familiar dogs, such as those owned by your family, friends, or neighbors, actually cause the majority of dog bites, which can create an awkward personal situation. Our attorneys will work hard to secure full compensation from the property owner’s insurance company, so you don’t need to worry about placing a financial burden on your friend or neighbor.
    • Slip and fall injuries – Business and property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe. When owners fail to maintain their property or don’t install safety features such as adequate railings, they can be held liable for any injuries that occur due to their negligence.
    • Nursing home abuse – When you select a nursing home for your loved one, you trust that they will be able to adequately provide for their physical and mental well-being. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are understaffed or face other issues, which can lead to the abuse or neglect of their residents.
    • Wrongful death – If someone else’s negligence caused your loved one’s death, a wrongful death lawsuit can help recover funds needed to cover funeral and burial expenses as well as the loss of your loved one’s income.
    • Medical malpractice – Patients should be able to count on medical providers for a high standard of care. When providers fail to meet these standards, they can cause patients to suffer from severe injury and illness.

    Although these are some of the most common, we also handle other types of injury cases. Even if you feel that your case is too small to involve a lawyer, you could benefit from a free consultation where we will give you an honest assessment of what your case may be worth.

    Testimonials

    Brian Custy helped me at a time I needed someone I could trust.  He was attentive, positive, thorough, knowledgeable, and professional in every exchange.

    - Judy M.

    To some they would think my case as minimal. Custy Law Firm treated me with the most respect and consideration. Thank you CLF.

    - William C.

    I originally tried to use our legal counsel from my union. I was getting lowball offers, and after I refused to accept their offer, I was fired by my very own attorney. I was scared out of my mind not only for myself but my family. I was lucky enough to use Brian Custy, after a hard 3 week trial . . . we ended up winning my case and won well into the six figures. I would highly recommend Brian, and I am now proud to call him my friend.

    - RYAN D.

Thanks guys you have helped me in so many ways.

    - Joel Marquart

    Custy Law Firm has redeemed the reputation lawyers face in the legal field. I’m so grateful for their professionalism, their communication skills as well as their knowledge of the law. My experience seemed overwhelming and the process was intimidated until I spoke with Custy, attorney Brown and Mrs. Dunn from the Valparaiso office. They were vigilant in pursuing a great settlement for my family and I, but most importantly they led me through this most difficult time with patience and sound advice. I’d recommend Custy Law to anyone who need representation.
