About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Born in St. Petersburg, FL, and raised in Tampa, FL, David Carter has made it his life’s work to seek justice for those who have been wronged or injured. After graduating from Jesuit High School in Tampa, FL, David attended the University of Florida on a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship and graduated from the highly-regarded Honors Program. As a fifth-generation attorney, Mr. Carter knew early on that he wanted to litigate cases and assist his clients in obtaining justice against powerful, corporate interests. To that end, David attended Florida State University College of Law, graduating with Honors.

After graduation, David immediately went to work in the personal injury field at one of the larger firms. While he gained great satisfaction from helping his clients and achieving favorable results in their cases, he knew he would be happier at a smaller firm that was focused on building relationships with its clients and providing its client's personalized support throughout their entire case. Thus, in 2016, David accepted a position at a boutique firm where he gained experience in building client relationships and litigating larger cases. However, David eventually left to start Carter Injury Law, PA. Carter Injury Law, PA is a firm dedicated to the needs of its clients and the community. Local, trusted and experienced.

We got Justice from damage in our apartment.
After me and my wife lost a lot of our belongings because of a contractor negligence, in few months our Lawyer David J. Carter settled with the Insurance. We are Very Satisfied how tenacious and fast he was dealing with the insurance. And by the way, he always kept us posted of each step until Justice was done. God Bless David J. Carter !

If You Were Injured Don't Face It Alone!
It's always going to be life shattering for anyone who has been injured in a car accident. So many questions runs through your mind about what to do next and who to call. Flashes of worry of what may come blasts through your head about loss of work, legal/insurance cases, and future medical bills. I wouldn't wish anyone to have to go through that alone which is why I recommend to call Attorney David Carter if you have been injured and in a car crash or have any questions regarding traffic law and your rights. You never have to face what happened to you alone. McCulloch & Carter Law is my go to when it comes to traffic accidents and citations. After being rear-ended by a violent driver here in Brandon, FL, I called the cops and my significant other then I immediately called McCulloch & Carter Law firm. And I am so glad I did! All of my confusion and lack of direction was all addressed by Attorney David Carter. He helped me to resolve not only the losses I incurred from the accident from this uninsured driver, but also he helped me maximize benefits from my PIP and Bodily Injury coverage for my medical emergency. The things I didn't even know were available to help me he made sure I got it all. Never face traffic situations alone because you don't have to! Over the 6 months that I have been seeing doctors and recovering from my injuries Attorney David Carter was there to navigate me every step of the way. Now today all my medical bills have been covered and I don't owe a thing. And like the cherry on top of the sundae I even received funds to replace my damaged car and funds for any future medical needs. I couldn't have done any of this on my own. Thank you so much David for all your dedication and assistance!

Would definitely use Mr. Carter if ever need legal issues..

Amazing attorney
David Carter is an amazing attorney. I was injured in a car accident and he was able to get me compensation for my injuries. Hopefully I will never be in a motor vehicle again but just in case I do, I will know who to call.

Very professional and helpful
David Carter helped us with a pretty bad car accident that my son was in. He was injured after being rear ended by 2 vehicles. There was a lot of resistance from one of the insurance companies, so we hired David to help us through what was a painful process at that point. Once David took over handling everything, things went as smooth as could be. He was so extremely helpful. He always answered right away when we called or emailed him. He walked us through the entire process explaining everything as it progressed. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney.

From treatment to settlement day!!
David Carter and his team truly made this process easier than I expected. I was involved in an auto accident in which David Carter assisted me with getting all the required medical attention needed while fighting for my case. He kept in touch with every new and important update. David was very open and honest of process and timing. He always checked in to see how treatment was coming along and to overall check on his client. Fast forward to the day of my call from David, congrats we’ve settled. I can’t thank David and his team enough for getting me not just the financial help (cherry on top) but also the medical attention and future therapies needed.

Amazing
David Carter is amazing to work with. My husband was in a car accident and we first called to ask him some questions and he happily answered all of them with no pressure to use him and offered his advice. After things progressed we hired him and he came to our home and is always available. Its not often an attorney gives you his cell phone number but David does. You feel like part of the family with him and I know we are in good hands!

Amazing Lawyer that gets results!
I hired Attorney Carter to take over my personal injury case that was languishing with another firm. Attorney Carter met with me and hit the ground running. He clearly communicated with me throughout each step of the process. His experience made all the difference because he was able to utilize a legal strategy that forced a better result than I could have hoped for. I couldn't be happier with Attorney Carter and his handling of my case. I would highly recommend him!

When you were in an accident the last thing you want is to worry more then you already are. Get the peace of mind you deserve when you work with David. The fact that I could call David on his Cell phone which is something rare in their industry.

He will take care of you the first time the right way. Now I keep his magnet on my fridge and you should too!

Helped my mother in law with accident claim
David is an amazing resource for accident claims. He works one on one with his clients and gives them a higher level of service compared to the big attorney firms. David wants to win claims for his clients and not just to compensate himself. He is the person you need in your corner if you or your family have an accident.

Excellent care with someone you can trust
David Carter took excellent care of me and my case. It could have been a very scary time for me after my car accident. But David Carter handled everything in a professional, timely manner. The procedures after being in a car accident left me in unknown territory, as I had never hired an attorney. But he handled everything so that I never had to worry about what to do. I could call or text him personally and he would advise me when I had questions, and handled everything with care. Every step of the way, from start to finish, was handled by David personally. I trusted him completely. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants a professional who will take care of you personally.
