Standing Up For The Rights Of Motorcycle Accident Victims

Few people walk away from a motorcycle crash unharmed. Motorcyclists often get blamed for accidents that were not their fault. Then they are victimized a third time when the insurance company tries to lowball their injury claims.

At Carter & Putnam, LLC, we are strong advocates for people who have been injured on motorcycles by the negligence of others. Tamara Putnam “The Fighter Lawyer” will take your case seriously and fight for your full compensation.

What Caused The Motorcycle Accident?

Drivers often claim that the motorcycle “came out of nowhere” or was “racing like a maniac.” The more likely truth is that the driver failed to see the motorcycle because of their own inattention or careless driving. We have seen many motorcycle accident scenarios in which the driver was at fault. Some of these include:

  • Speeding or tailgating
  • Turning left into the path of a motorcycle
  • Changing lanes abruptly
  • Pulling out into the roadway without looking
  • Running a stop sign or traffic light
  • Talking or texting on a cell phone

We have worked with accident reconstruction experts to prove that our client was not the negligent party. Tamara Putnam is an experienced trial lawyer who will go to bat for you. Insurance companies know that they can negotiate a fair settlement with us or deal with us in court. Either way, we fight for you!

Full Compensation For Serious Injuries

We know that the injuries tend to be severe, permanent or fatal. Carter & Putnam has represented motorcycle riders and passengers who suffered broken bones, spinal injuries, brain trauma and serious “road rash” burns and abrasions. We work with clients, medical professionals and other experts to understand the extent of injury, the prognosis for recovery and the future care needs, and to make sure the personal and financial harm is reflected in your personal injury compensation.

Tamara Putnam is adept at negotiating with insurance companies and the multiple parties involved in a motorcycle injury claim. She also handles subrogation issues and pursues any additional sources of insurance coverage to ensure that our clients receive the comprehensive compensation necessary for physical, mental and economic recovery from the devastating event.

We want to ensure that you receive all the financial compensation that you are entitled to in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident. Call our office at 816-246-8881 for a free consultation.
