Catastrophic Injuries & Wrongful Death
Truck accident

After a catastrophic injury or fatality has affected the lives of victims and their families anywhere in the greater Peoria and Illinois area, what is needed is good advice and help in trying to find a remedy for all the harm.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, whether brain injury, spinal injury, amputation of a limb, paralysis or death, turn to the experienced legal team at Carter Law Offices. We have more than 35 years of experience handling a wide range of personal injury and medical malpractice matters that involve such catastrophic results. Whether the victim is an adult or an infant in childbirth, our firm is committed to helping clients understand their legal options and holding the negligent party responsible for the harms caused by their needless, unsafe behaviour.


Carter Law Offices will defend your rights if you or a loved one has suffered from:

Paramedics tending to the first aid of an injured woman on a stretcher at the scene of a car crash, whilst a police woman is escorting a bystander towards the cordon tape, being filmed by a camera man
Brain Injury/Spinal Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not be immediately apparent. It may be hours, days or even weeks before the victim or family members begin to notice subtle symptoms that indicate a problem. Our experienced legal team is committed to helping you understand your legal options and holding the negligent party responsible.


Though a burn may not have the same connotation that a brain injury or spinal cord injury does, they are just as traumatic. A burn injury can last a lifetime, causing severe pain and requiring extensive medical care. We serve individuals who have suffered severe burns and other injuries caused by electrical shocks in a work site accident, medical malpractice incident, or motor vehicle accident. We can assist you in seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and any lost wages you may have incurred.

Spinal Cord Injury

Depending on the level of the injury and extent of nerve damage, a damaged spinal cord may cause total or partial paralysis. If you have sustained paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia after a car accident, personal injury incident, or medical mistake, turn to our qualified legal team to seek compensation for your suffering.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one in a personal injury accident can be devastating. We provide family members and loved ones with the compassionate and committed representation they need during these difficult situations.

Amputation/Loss of a Limb

Careless behavior, whether driving a vehicle or prescribing medication, can result in severe injury resulting in a limb being amputated. This office has the track record of assisting such victims.


Serious injuries can leave a victim unable to function or take care of themselves. Lifetime, around-the-clock medical care may be required. Their life, and the lives of their loved ones, may be forever changed. James Carter and our legal team can help you pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
