Personal Injury

Each year, millions of people in the United States are injured in motor vehicle crashes. Many of these accidents are unfortunately caused by the preventable carelessness or even malicious intent of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting from negligence or intentional harm, you may be entitled to receive just compensation for your physical and psychological injuries.

To protect your rights and make certain that you are taking all of the necessary actions in the recovery process, you should contact a qualified personal injury lawyer. Our law firm handles all personal injury cases including:

We will take the time to learn every aspect of your case. We have the foresight and skill to look at the road ahead and consider future damages which may harm you for years to come including pain, emotional trauma and subsequent injuries. With this knowledge, we can properly evaluate the full extent of your damages.

We will aggressively pursue damages against the individuals or companies that caused the harm.

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury.  Even though many auto accidents are minor fender-benders, they nonetheless result in a shocking number of severe injuries and deaths.  In addition to disability, victims often experience substantial pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, medical expenses and property damage. Very often, car accident victims are unaware of the full value of their claims. 

The insurance company wants to settle your case as soon as possible – and for as little money as possible. After an accident, you need time to determine just how serious your injury is, what medical treatment or physical therapy you need, and how much your lost wages will be. Therefore, it is crucial to retain a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible to achieve maximum compensation.

Never talk to the insurance company prior to obtaining legal representation.

We can help you:

  • Establish liability by preserving evidence and interviewing witnesses

  • Help you understand the law, including statutes of limitations

  • Collect the necessary medical records and help you document your injuries properly so that you receive full compensation

  • Ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled

  • Negotiate a settlement that takes into account all future medical and financial needs.

  • Litigate your loss should settlement negotiations fail. 

We handle car crashes on a regular basis, but we understand this is not an everyday experience for you. We will guide you through every step in the process.

DWUI Defense

In a concerted effort to reduce drunk driving, all states have imposed strict laws against driving while under the influence (DWUI). If you are arrested and charged with drunk or drugged driving the consequences can be severe; you may lose your driver’s license, pay heavy fines, have your vehicle impounded and even receive a jail sentence. If you receive four (4) DWUI's convictions within a ten year period, you could potentially be looking at prison time. DWUI convictions remain on your permanent criminal record and as a result, may interfere with your livelihood, causing you to lose your job or hinder future employment opportunities. With such high stakes, it is crucial that you contact The Nick Carter Law Firm as soon as you are arrested for driving while intoxicated.
The Nick Carter Law Firm. P.C. understands the anxiety and fear one feels after being arrested for drunk driving, and we will diligently represent you to ensure the best possible resolution for your case. We have a thorough understanding of standard field sobriety tests and law enforcement protocol which can be part of an effective and comprehensive defense against DWUI charges. During our initial consultation with you, we will begin the process to determine if there was police error, field sobriety test errors or inaccuracies, failure to follow proper protocol or administrative errors which may prove your innocence or lead to the dismissal of charges by the prosecution.
DWUI cases are complex and the laws which govern them vary dramatically depending upon the state or municipality in which the charges are filed. We are well versed in all local and state-wide DWUI regulations and have experience interacting with police departments, prosecutors and the Wyoming Department of Transportation. If you’ve been arrested for DWI, DWUI or DUI, contact our law firm today to speak with one of our knowledgeable attorneys who will fight on your behalf to ensure your DWI arrest does not turn into a conviction.

Wrongful Death

Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. Unfortunately, many wrongful deaths occur as a result of negligence.  If you’ve lost someone due to negligence, you may be able to recover damages through a wrongful death suit.
A wrongful death action arises when a person is killed as the result of negligence, on the part of another person. Negligence might occur in a situation like an automobile or airplane accident, an accident in the workplace, or medical malpractice. Intentional violence or criminal conduct that causes death can also be covered by a wrongful death lawsuit. In that situation, the person or persons responsible may also be prosecuted under criminal law. Close family members may be able to sue to recover damages that result from a wrongful death. 
Families of the victim often worry that pursing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Some families do not immediately realize the impact a wrongful death can have on their lives, so contacting an experienced attorney is always a good idea. We understand the delicacy of wrongful death suits and will try to resolve the wrongful death lawsuit as quickly as possible in a sensitive manner.
Wrongful death suits can recover the expenses associated with the wrongful death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that will increase the burden on the family already suffering the loss of a loved one. Since all wrongful death suits differ greatly, we can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the wrongful death victim and the individual survivor.
Our firm has the resources and knowledge necessary to successfully litigate a wrongful death suit. While no amount of money can bring back your loved one, your family need not suffer financial losses because of someone else's negligence.

Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

A misdemeanor charge is one that, in general, carries a maximum jail sentence of one year. A misdemeanor conviction may also result in fines and penalties, as well as the risk of losing professional licensure or difficultly obtaining employment in the future. As part of your misdemeanor defense, your criminal defense attorney may advocate for alternative sentencing measures, including probation, or community service. Your attorney will also fight to keep the conviction off of your official criminal history; this is particularly important if you need a clean record to maintain or obtain employment in your particular field.

Misdemeanor crimes are less serious in nature than felonies and generally do not involve extreme violence or extensive property damage. First, second or third DUI charges, simple assault, petty theft (e.g., shoplifting) or disorderly conduct are all examples of misdemeanor crimes. However, multiple and repeated charges for the same misdemeanor crime could eventually result in a felony charge and possible lengthy jail time or hefty fines (such as Domestic Violence). A theft crime may be classified as a felony if the value of the stolen item is in excess of $1,000.00.  

Those charged with a misdemeanor offense are often eligible for representation by a public defender or may be tempted to try and defend the charges pro se. This is unwise for a number of reasons and could result in an unnecessary conviction when an ample defense may have been available. When you first meet with The Nick Carter Law firm we will discuss the facts surrounding your arrest and charge, including the events leading up to the incident and any mis-characterizations that were likely made by the arresting officers. Preparation for your misdemeanor trial may include any of the following:

  • Interviewing witnesses and preparing witnesses to testify;

  • Reviewing lab reports or the details of a field sobriety test;

  • Speaking with arresting officers and examining the details contained in the arrest report;

  • Negotiating with the prosecutor to obtain a dismissal or reduction in charges;

  • Offering an alternative sentencing arrangement to include rehabilitative treatment, or;

  • Arguing for the suppression of certain evidence obtained in violation of your constitutional rights.

If you were recently arrested or charged with a misdemeanor, contact The Nick Carter Law Firm as soon as possible so that we can formulate an effective defense strategy to protect your rights and livelihood.
