    Frequently Asked Questions

    It can take a lot of consideration to decide whether or not to pursue compensation for your injuries. We understand how stressful it may be to realize what you could be signing up for. We’re here to help alleviate any concerns you may have and to be transparent about what you can expect throughout this process. To help you get started thinking about your claim, we’ve answered several questions below that many of our clients have had.

    Do I have to file a lawsuit?

    You don’t have to file a lawsuit, but you may need to, depending on one of two things: how you were injured and whether you want to pursue full compensation for your injuries. Typically, if you were injured in an auto accident, you’ll need to file a personal injury claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. (You might also need to do this if you were injured in a slip and fall accident and the owner of the property was insured.)

    This will trigger an investigation by the insurance company, which will look to find ways that they can reduce the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive. This saves them money, which is their primary objective. A good personal injury attorney, like ours at Custy Law Firm | Accident & Injury Lawyers, will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf for you to be fully compensated for your losses. If the insurance company doesn’t offer you the compensation that you and your attorney believe is fair, you can then choose to have us file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

    If you were the victim of medical malpractice or are seeking compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one, you’ll need to file a personal injury lawsuit from the outset.

    If part of the accident was my fault, can I still be compensated for my injuries?

    Even if you were partly responsible for the accident or event that caused your injuries, you could still pursue compensation. Indiana tort law takes a modified comparative negligence approach to personal injury lawsuits and claims. This means that you might still be entitled to compensation for your injuries if you were partly at fault for how you sustained them, but your compensation will be reduced. The percentage of fault that you have for the accident is the same percentage by which your eligible compensation will be reduced.

    For example, if you’re entitled to $100,000 in compensation and you were 30 percent at fault for the accident, you would instead receive $70,000 in compensation.

    However, according to Indiana’s modified comparative fault law, if you were more than 50% at fault for your injuries, you won’t be entitled to any compensation at all.

    What should I do if I’m contacted by an insurance company after the accident?

    The last thing you want to do after an accident is to speak to any representatives from an insurance company.

    It’s common for insurance companies to contact accident victims quickly after the accident. When the insurance company contacts you, they’re not doing so to help you when you need it most, as they may claim. They want to speak to you to try to understand what happened to cause the accident. Specifically, they want to get you to say something about the accident that can be used to indicate fault on your part. If they can get you to make a statement that they can use to show that you were partly or fully to blame, they can reduce or eliminate your eligibility for compensation.

    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.

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.

    - Yolonda M

    Brian and his team were extremely helpful to us in resolving our case (related to personal injury from a traffic accident).  Brian listened to what our goals were for the case and focused on delivering those (vs. trying to maximize his own fees).  He was extremely professional in all of our interactions and responsive to our numerous questions.  We got a very positive outcome, without any significant hassle.  I highly recommend Custy Law Firm!

    - Saroj S.

    As a medical professional, I would like to testify that Mr. Brian Custy is the best attorney I met in Indiana. I trust his knowledge, experience, and professionalism. The firm is a very friendly one to work with. You will have no regret to use his service as needed.
