DAVE CLOUTIER

Personal Injury Attorney

Helping Injured People in the Michiana area for over 30 Years!


Dave Cloutier is revered by many other legal professionals as the Best or certainly one of the top and Personal Injury Attorneys in Indiana.  Dave Cloutier is a well-respected personal injury attorney in the Michiana area. He has invested many years as a Michiana lawyer (virtually 100% of that time as a personal injury attorney). Cloutier has helped hundreds of people who have been injured by working diligently and fighting for settlements that they rightfully deserve. He has also helped families of those who have been killed, due to the negligence of others, by guiding them and battling for compensation for their losses.

 

One of Cloutier's strong suits is his in-depth knowledge of the law. He knows what is reasonable, what is possible, and often, what is the most likely outcome of a case. In addition, Dave is simply an honest, down-to-earth guy, that just happens to be a NO BS lawyer. His compassion for people, combined with his vast experience and knowledge make him a force to reckon with as opposing counsel. In other words, other attorneys don't like to go up against this guy. Combine all of that with the fact that Cloutier is somewhat of a brainiac. He's very intelligent and knows how to play his cards. This is instrumental in a personal injury case when you're fighting a mega insurance firm with huge financial resources and lots of time.

"Two different attorneys told me there was no way my case was worth what I was asking.

I ended up hiring Dave Cloutier who fought very hard for me. 

By the time it settled, he actually got me more than I asked for."

C Moyer, Elkhart, Indiana

 

Dave has assisted people throughout northern Indiana and southern Michigan by providing them good counsel, advice, and direction. He has also fought diligently for his client's rights to ensure that they receive the very best representation and settlements for their damages and injuries. Dave's goal is to protect his clients and attempt to deliver them the highest settlements possible for their cases.

"I was told my case wasn't worth much because of my age. Dave told me that he was going to fight for me anyway and he certainly did. He settled my case for much more than what I was told I could possibly get. He cared about me as a person and fought for me as if I were his grandmother."

Dave Cloutier also schedules consultations for injured people. He knows that this is a time in people's lives when they more than likely need help the most... and may not be in the best financial situation due to their circumstances (medical bills, loss of work, loss of transportation, etc.) where they can afford exceptional legal counsel.

"When my son was injured in an auto accident I wasn't certain where I could go and get proper representation. I was even working for an attorney at the time. I was advised to call Dave Cloutier. All I can say is... I'm so happy we went to him. He treated my family amazingly and kept us informed throughout the process.
Bottom line is, we got a very nice settlement!

Personal Injury CASES

Types Of Injury Cases That Dave Cloutier Specializes In


Cloutier Law Offices handles many types of personal injury law, including auto accidents, slips and falls, wrongful death, and medical malpractice. They also represent people who have been bitten by animals, assaulted, raped, or injured due to neglect. Below you will find a little more depth about the types of cases that they handle. 

AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEY


Dave Cloutier has vast experience as an auto accident attorney and is considered by many as one of the very best auto accident personal injury attorneys in the state. When it comes to auto accident injuries Dave is well-versed and well-prepared to go to battle for you. He understands the subtleties of auto accident cases and he knows how to handle them from the beginning until the case is complete... and you get the best, most reasonable recovery possible.

 

WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEY

At Cloutier Law Office we have invested many years fighting for the rights of families who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death situation. These cases are not only heart-breaking, they need very special attention. Although wrongful death lawsuits are similar to personal injury cases in many ways, they are also significantly different in other ways. First, a wrongful death lawsuit can be more difficult to fight because the potential for damages can be much higher. Needless to say, “the other side” often fights much harder in an attempt not to pay out a large settlement or heavy verdict. However, when a wrongful death case is handled properly, by the right lawyer (one experienced and knowledgeable, and willing to prepare and fight hard) the outcome can be very positive.

 

Furthermore, wrongful death lawsuits are typically more tragic than a typical personal injury lawsuit, therefore juries tend to award much higher damages… again if you have the right attorney trying the case. That’s where Dave Cloutier and his firm’s experience with wrongful death cases make all of the difference.

 

Dave Cloutier and his team have won many wrongful death cases over the years and delivered millions of dollars to the victim's families. When there is a wrongful death case, Dave has a reputation for battling hard and relentlessly, defending the rights of the people he represents. As one of his clients stated, "No attorney, not one, fights harder than Dave CLoutier."

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEY


If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident then Dave Cloutier should be your first consideration for representation. Dave has handled, tried, and or settled many accidents involving motorcycle personal injuries. Motorcycle accidents can be quite different than car accidents and often need to be handled differently. Cloutier Law Offices have experience and an in-depth understanding of motorcycle accident injuries which enables them to help you in many ways.

One of the most traumatizing experiences in life can be being attacked by an animal. While most pets are a loving part of people's families, some are far from it. Being attacked by a vicious animal can be emotionally disturbing and physically dangerous. Being bitten or clawed by an animal can leave both physical and emotional scars. Animal bites can be extremely painful. Animal bites can rip and tear, skin while their jaws can break bones. Worse yet, animal bites are dangerous to humans because the bacteria found in an animal's mouth can cause serious infections in human beings.

 

At the offices of Dave Cloutier, they handle many animal attacks on people. Their first focus is to ensure that you are well and then they fight to get you a settlement to take care of Victims who have been bitten by a dog can sue for financial compensation that covers their legal damages. This goes beyond just paying for the victim’s medical care. In some cases, the dog owner’s insurance company will cover the verdict or settlement.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

Medical Malpractice is a very, very unique type of law. Most personal injury attorneys do not have extensive experience in this complex and complicated type of law. They may (or oftentimes may not) win a case related to mistakes made by physicians, clinicians, medical staff, hospitals, or medical centers. The Cloutier Team has handled medical malpractice claims for over three decades. In fact, they are one of the most experienced medical malpractice legal teams in the state.

 

In Medical Malpractice claims, you better know how to maneuver your way through the process. Medical malpractice laws are unique.
