Valparaiso is the county seat of Porter County, Indiana.  The population was 32,841 at the 2011 census, making it the second-largest city in Porter County. The site of Valparaiso was included in the purchase of land from the Potawatomi Indians by the U.S. Government in October 1832.


This land was located a mile east of the current Courthouse along the Sauk Trail, and it existed from at or before 1830 until after 1832.  The location is just north of the railroad crossing on State Route 2 and County Road 400 North.


 Located on the old Indian trail from Rock Island to Detroit, Michigan, Valparaiso had its first log cabin in 1834. Established in 1836 as Portersville, county seat of Porter County, it was renamed to Valparaiso in 1837 after Valparaíso, Chile, near which the county's namesake David Porter battled in the Battle of Valparaiso during the War of 1812.


The city once was called the "City of Churches" because of the large number of churches located there at the end of the 19th Century.

    #1.  Get immediate medical care The extent of your  injuries or of others is very hard to diagnose at the time of your incident.  Serious injuries  may or may not result in immediate pain or discomfort. Call 911 or emergency  services after any serious accident or injury.

  • Do not make any conclusive statements

    #2.  At the time or your accident  or injury it is common try to  analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of  their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.

  • Cooperate with emergency authorities

    #3.  Cooperate with  medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information.  Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).

  • Contact an attorney to review your injury case

    #4.  Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney.  Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.

  • Be Patient - Follow medical care directives

    #5.  Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose. One painful  injury can mask a completely different and more serious injury.  If you experience any medical issues after your incident contact a medical professional immediately. Keep all incident and medical records for your attorney's review.
