Robert J. Boughter practices exclusively in accident and injury law, including motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, wrongful death, product liability, boating/lake accidents, electrocution/burn injuries, premises liability, dog bites, nursing home negligence, workers’ compensation and other catastrophic injuries and deaths occurring on or off the job.
Mr. Boughter’s keen insight stems from his rich career as a special agent investigating fraud for the Office of Inspector General and later as a litigator with an insurance defense firm in Northwestern Indiana. In both positions, he was highly successful, garnering a 100 percent conviction rate for the governmental fraud cases he investigated and, as an attorney on the other side of the docket, successfully defended Fortune 500 companies, insurance companies, trucking companies, at-fault drivers, municipalities, police officers and other entities against a variety of tort claims.
Mr. Boughter aggressively fights for his clients and has recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. In one particular case, he assisted in obtaining a 3 million dollar settlement for a seriously injured client who had been told by two other prominent personal injury law firms that there was nothing they could do for him.
