LEGAL SERVICES

Millions of dollars have been recovered for our Personal Injury clients in 2018 alone!

Attorney Calhoun has been recognized statewide by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys, awarding his firm as one of the 10 Best Law Firms for Exceptional and Outstanding Client Service and satisfaction.

Attorney Daniel J. Calhoun is also a distinguished member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. This forum is one of the most prestigious groups of trial attorneys as fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. This awards and recognition speaks volumes as to Attorney Calhoun’s continuous success and hard work. In just 2018 alone, Calhoun Law has recovered millions for his clients!

We don’t just churn and burn cases, settling them for a fraction of their full value. Every client receives the attention they deserve whether they have a multi-million dollar case or not. We do not push our clients to accept a settlement offer just to get the case settled. We are not afraid to take your case to trial and pursue the maximum recovery possible. We pride ourselves in being accessible to our clients and keeping them informed throughout all the steps of the process.

Car Accidents

Automobile accidents can ultimately be one of the most stressful events you will ever experience. The sound of the crash may be something you never forget. The injuries you sustain can pose a constant reminder of the tragic occurrence. Here at Calhoun Law, we understand that after a severe car accident, your main concern is the safety and well-being of your family. However, while your priority is your family, the insurance company’s priority is to settle your claim for little or no money.

It is important to remember that insurance companies are NOT on your side. Attempting to settle your claim alone is never in your best interest. It is vital for you and your family to have someone who can effectively advocate on your behalf. Attorney Calhoun and his staff are highly experienced and trained to fight insurance companies, resulting in maximum recoveries for our clients.

At Calhoun Law, you are our priority. We take great pride in ensuring all our clients’ cases are handled with the utmost care. If you or a loved one has been involved in an auto accident, we can help. Call our office today to schedule your free consultation and discuss your case.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a term that refers to a preventable death that occurred due to the negligence or misconduct of another. The death of a loved one is already a difficult and emotional time. However, when a loved one passes unexpectedly, families often suffer financial harm from mounting medical bills, funeral expenses, and reduced income.

We understand that no amount of money will make up for the loss of your loved one but penalizing the responsible party may send a strong message that may help prevent a similar accident from happening. Full compensation permitted under Indiana law will help alleviate some of your family’s financial stress, allowing you time to adequately grieve. The spouse and/or children of the victim has the right to bring a claim against the person or company whose negligence caused the wrongful death. Be mindful, you must file the claim within 2 years of the accident.

Attorney Daniel J. Calhoun not only has the legal skill but the compassion and understanding to help families move forward after a devastating loss. If your loved one has passed away due to the negligence of someone else, contact Calhoun Law today for a free case evaluation.

Slip and Fall

Injuries stemming from a slip in fall are governed under premises liability in Indiana. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident at a business, you may be entitled to compensation.

Calhoun Law is experienced in successfully litigating slip and fall cases and earning maximum recoveries for our clients.

  • Slip and falls caused by slippery floors, standing water, ice or snow
  • Slip and falls caused by damaged or uneven walkways, slippery stairs, defective construction site injuries
  • inadequate security resulting in a preventable assault by a third party
  • falling merchandise

In order to have a successful premises liability case, you must prove that the property owner or business owner’s negligence caused the injuries that were sustained in the accident. It is imperative that you retain a legal professional who is experienced with such claims and has access to resources that aid in establishing and proving your claim.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a slip and fall accident, call our office today for a free consultation

Dog Bites

Millions of people are bitten by dogs each year in the U.S. Dog bites often lead to infections or other serious conditions that can be permanent in nature. Your doctor may recommend that you undergo reconstructive surgery. Children bitten by dogs may never fully recover and can have long-lasting psychological problems.

Indiana maintains generous laws as it relates to victims of dog bites. Unless you have provoked a dog to bite you, there is a high likelihood that you are entitled to compensation under Indiana law. Most of the time, a dog owner with homeowner’s insurance will be responsible for paying compensation to the victim.

If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog, please contact our office today. Calhoun Law is experienced in receiving maximum recoveries on behalf of our clients. Call us today to schedule your free consultation.

Truck Accidents

According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, there were 16,748 accidents involving commercial vehicles in 2017. Out of those accidents, 138 people were killed, and 2,058 people were seriously injured. The tremendous force exerted due to the massive weight of semi-trucks produces devastating injuries, often resulting in life-threatening injuries or fatalities.

  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
  • Lack of driver training
  • Lack of driver experience
  • Weather conditions
  • Inefficiently maintained vehicles
  • Defective equipment
  • Roadway conditions
  • Driver fatigue
  • Intoxication
  • Speeding

Navigating and establishing liability in trucking accident cases can be very complex. In an effort to minimize liability, trucking companies often structure their companies in such a way that makes it difficult to ascertain who is responsible. Parties other than the semi-truck driver may be held financially liable for injuries and damages. It is important that you consult with a legal professional prior to filing your claim.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, contact our office today to schedule your free consultation.

Motorcycle Accidents

The increase in technology may benefit drivers with vehicles equipped with advanced safety features but bikers are more vulnerable now than ever before. People are paying more attention to their phone messages and Facebook notifications than the road. As a motorcycle rider himself, Attorney Dan Calhoun knows firsthand the dangers distracted drivers pose to bikers.

Calhoun Law can help you in establishing the underlying cause of the accident and navigate you through the process of prosecuting your claim. Never try to negotiate your case alone. The insurance company will not give you a fraction of the compensation you are owed.

  • Texting
  • Failing to yield
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to leave enough room between vehicles
  • Swerving in front or around a motorcycle
  • Neglecting to pay attention to other drivers on the road

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed while riding a motorcycle, call our office today and schedule your free consultation!

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

To make bicyclists and pedestrians safer throughout Northwest Indiana, towns have begun installing more pedestrian crosswalk signs and reflective markings. Despite that, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 600 cyclists die each year and more than 52,000 people are injured in bicycle vs. vehicle crashes.

Injuries sustained as a result of either bicycle/vehicle or pedestrian/vehicle accidents are significantly more severe and account for a much greater percentage of fatalities than car vs. car accidents. Often, the survivors of these accidents are left with life-long disabilities.

If you know you will be out jogging/walking or bicycling in an area with vehicles, it is important to take safety precautions to help prevent an accident from occurring. Make sure you are visible to vehicles by staying on the right-hand side of the road and wear reflective clothing. Always make sure you have lights on your bike or person when there is a chance you will be out at night.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a vehicle, while on a bicycle or as a pedestrian, call us today for a free consultation.
