Personal Injury

One second can change your entire life. Serious injuries from an accident change the course of peoples’ lives every day. An accident that results in serious injury or devastating loss has the potential to change your future forever. Even in moderate motor vehicle accident cases, we have seen victims whose lives are never quite the same again, physically, emotionally or financially. Simple pleasures become chores. Daily routines are disrupted and the last battle an injured person wants to fight during their recovery is with an insurance company. The attorneys at Carter & Putnam fight this battle for you.

The accident attorneys at Carter & Putnam are here to stand up for you when you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. We will guide you through the litigation process, deal with the often combative, always profit motivated insurance companies on your behalf and advise you every step of the way in getting the maximum compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

The personal injury attorneys at Carter & Putnam represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the carelessness or recklessness of others. Our emphasis is on Preparation and Presentation of YOUR case. Whether in the courtroom or the conference room, your interests are paramount.

Our firm provides what clients do not and will not get in a larger sized law firm: Partner-level, dedicated, one-on-one professional attention. When clients call our office they do not get sent to a paralegal and then to a graduated junior associate, who is just “learning the ropes.” Our clients will speak with one of the partners at the very first meeting. They will get their questions answered and their needs met by the advocate managing their case personally. That is the major difference between our firm and larger firms. A distinction that every potential client, whatever their needs, should consider very carefully before selecting an attorney. At our firm, you will always be given partner-level attention and an unfaltering commitment to your case. You will have a personal legal advocate on your side, fighting for you. You will never be “just another file”.

We handle a wide range of personal injury cases, from automobile accidents to slip and fall accidents, to catastrophic injuries, worker’s compensation, nursing home abuse and negligent, medical malpractice and wrongful death. If we accept your case, we will represent you on a contingent fee basis, which means that you will not owe us any money unless we recover a financial settlement for you. You will not be required to pay us any money “up-front” to accept your case. In addition, we offer a free case evaluation. Our firm is specifically structured to handle your case from beginning to end, producing the best financial result possible for you.

If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident resulting in serious injuries or death contact the injury lawyers at Carter & Putnam immediately. Time is of the essence on these matters and it is imperative that you have a strong advocate on your side from the beginning. Call 816.246.8881 to speak with a partner at Carter & Putnam.
