DO YOU NEED A DEFENSE LAWYER?

EVERY CLIENT HAS A UNIQUE STORY TO TELL.

Every client deserves the focus, attention, care and compassion necessary to resolve his or her case fairly. In over a quarter-century of practicing law in New Hampshire and Vermont, Charlie Buttrey has earned a reputation for energy and compassion, intelligence and empathy. Recovering from a serious injury, or mourning the loss of a loved one, is difficult enough.

Charlie focuses on all of the legal aspects of a case so that his clients can focus on healing.

PRACTICE AREAS WITHIN PERSONAL INJURY

Motor Vehicle Collisions

Charlie is well-known in the legal community and to the insurance companies as someone who works tirelessly on behalf of his clients to insure that they are compensated to the full extent of the law.

Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall cases present unique challenges, but Charlie has represented dozens of clients who have been injured in slap and fall accidents, from young children to active seniors.

Wrongful Death

If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, whether on the roads, at work, on the water or in the care of another person, you will draw solace in knowing that Charlie has decades of experience in representing families such as yours.

Injuries to Children

Charlie has represented dozens of families of children who have been injured in car motor vehicle collisions, by dogs, in falls, and in other accidents.

Nursing Home Negligence

If you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home negligence, you will be comforted to know that Charlie has decades of experience representing families who have been through the same trying experience.

Medical Malpractice

Charlie has represented dozens of families who have been victimized by medical malpractice, working with them to obtain fair compensation for their loss while treating them with dignity and compassion.

Snowmobile Accidents

If you’ve been injured on a snowmobile, don’t do it alone: Charlie has decades of experience in representing snowmobilers who have been injured by others, and has the experience, expertise and energy to insure that you are fully and fairly compensated.

Motorcycle Accidents

If you’ve been injured on a motorcycle because another driver was negligent, you are entitled to compensation for all of your medical expenses, all of your lost wages, and all your pain and suffering.

Dog Attacks

If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog, it is essential that you retain the services of an attorney who has experience in the area. The laws governing dog attacks are different in New Hampshire than they are in Vermont, and Charlie is one of a very few attorneys who has extensive experience representing dog attack victims in both states.

Defective Products

Every year, tens of thousands of people are seriously injured and sometimes killed by products that were poorly designed, improperly tested or defectively manufactured. If you have been injured by a defective product, you are entitled to compensation.

Bicycle Accidents

Every year, hundreds of cyclists are killed on the road and millions are injured. Dogs can run into the road, drivers can be inattentive, pavement can be dangerous. All it takes is a moment, and a cyclist’s life can be turned upside-down. Charlie has represented dozens of cyclists who have been seriously injured.

I would not trade what I went through for ANY amount of money. But I am glad Charlie was there when I needed him.
