Indiana Injury Attorney | Robert J. Boughter

Robert J. Boughter dedicates his life to the representation of people seriously injured or killed in accidents and on the job. He is known as “The Fighter” because of his aggressive and straightforward approach to representing his clients in and out of court. Mr. Boughter prides himself on being honest, tenacious, and loyal. He has a vast range of experience, having prosecuted almost every type of injury or death case imaginable—from vehicular accidents to chemical explosions. 

Mr. Boughter earned his undergraduate degrees in criminology and Spanish from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. While in undergraduate school, Mr. Boughter studied abroad in Valladolid, Spain at the Universidad de Valladolid, as well as in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico where he studied at El Centro Bilingue. Mr. Boughter is fluent in Spanish. Upon graduation, he was selected to serve as an agent with the Office of Inspector General for the State of Pennsylvania, where he investigated fraud in governmental agencies. During his tenure at the Office of Inspector General, Mr. Boughter had a 100% conviction rate for the cases he investigated. 

Mr. Boughter graduated from Indiana University Mauer School of Law, where he attended on partial scholarship. After earning his law degree, Mr. Boughter secured employment at a prominent Northwest Indiana insurance defense firm where he focused his practice on defending injury claims, insurance companies, trucking companies, Fortune 500 companies, at-fault drivers, businesses, municipalities, and police officers. As a former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Boughter knows all the tricks of the trade the insurance companies use to deny, delay, and defend claims. 


As a successful Indiana injury attorney, Mr. Boughter fights for his clients and has recovered millions on their behalf. In one particular case, he helped secure a 3 million dollar settlement for a seriously injured young man who was told by two other prominent Indianapolis injury firms that there was nothing they could do for him because his claims were likely barred by the exclusivity provision of the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act.    

Mr. Boughter practices before all Indiana state courts and before the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana. He is recognized by The National Trial Lawyers as a Top 100 Lawyer in the State of Indiana and is a member by invitation only of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum for having secured recoveries exceeding one million dollars in multiple cases. In addition, he has been recognized by Super Lawyers for the State of Indiana and has been named part of the Best Lawyers in America by Rue Ratings.

It is a privilege to fight for the injured. Your case is important—don’t settle for less.
