Our Firm

Helping Families in North Carolina for More than 30 Years

"Mere access to the courthouse doors does not by itself assure a proper functioning of the adversary process."
Thurgood Marshall
United States Supreme Court Justice

It's easy to think that all lawyers are created equally. But experience is always a factor, as is a law firm's abilities in a courtroom when you need an advocate who has won a case like yours.

If you or someone you know has suffered from a serious injury, you may have realized that the victim's life is often changed forever. Whether it be a physical injury requiring extensive surgery or the emotional trauma of the incident, hundreds of our clients have often come to us with a lot of unanswered questions.

We can help you with answers to those questions. We want to hear what happened, how you are feeling and to understand your situation. This understanding will help us provide answers ourselves or find the answers on your behalf.

Many people like to research as many different law firms as they can. However, if you are ready to speak with a lawyer, you may reach us directly at (704) 376-1911 -- today. We will either schedule an in-person appointment in our offices or if you are unable to travel, we will come to you.

We serve clients throughout North and South Carolina, but have also been involved in cases outside of the Carolinas.

Our reputation for tenaciously representing our clients is upheld by a core value of excellency that each lawyer at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates possesses. This is why our track record of success during our 30+ years of practice includes record setting verdicts and decades of consistent successful outcomes.

The secret of our success is our background, experience, knowledge, resources, and genuine care for our clients and their families.

More Than 60 Years of Combined Trial Experience

We have fought on behalf of accident and medical malpractice victims to obtain full, fair, and just compensation for over 30 years. Our practice is exclusively devoted to injury claims, and we are intimately familiar with the medicines and treatment of catastrophic injuries, including brain injury and closed head wounds.

Attorney Charles G. Monnett III belongs to a number of organizations devoted to dealing with brain injury. In 2004, he was appointed to the Governor's Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Advisory Council, which includes advising state government on a variety of issues involving TBI such as delivery of services and prevention. He has also served over 10 years on the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Brain Injury Association. Mr. Monnett has attended numerous seminars and lectures on various topics dealing with brain injury and other catastrophic injuries. Some seminars attended include neuro-radiology and neuro-imaging.

Our attorneys have published numerous works and are frequent lecturers on topics involving brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other catastrophic injury. We educate fellow attorneys as well as other legal professionals and medical professionals. We also take a team approach to your case, and you experience the benefit of a knowledgeable team of attorneys working together for your best interest.

Our background and experience allow us to properly evaluate your case and value your claim to seek the proper compensation for your injuries.

Our Resources

Our firm has the financial, personnel, and networking resources to effectively pursue your claim. Claims involving catastrophic injury are often expensive propositions, requiring substantial financial resources from the law firm representing you. The last thing you need is an attorney who runs out of money, and may have a conflict of interest between seeking full and fair compensation and prematurely settling your claim.

At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, our extensive experience and financial resources properly bring and -- if necessary -- litigate your claim.

We also employ a full time legal nurse consultant (LNC) for your benefit. Over the course of more than 30 years, we have taken the time to build an extensive network of medical professionals and experts to call upon, including neuropsychologists, accident reconstructionists, and other medical and financial experts.

We Care for You and Your Family

We realize families are priority, and understand how a brain injury or other catastrophic injury impacts the entire family, not only the victim. We go the extra mile to help you understand the law, process, and your options when it comes to juridical matters regarding injuries like this.

While our expertise in such injuries brings clients to our door, it is our sincere concern, courtesy and respect that continues to lead them to refer their friends and family to us. We understand the obstacles and challenges you face -- both now and in the future.

You will also benefit from our case management system, which assigns a full time paralegal to your case to constantly and proactively update you on your case's progress. Your paralegal will also answer questions and act as a liaison between you and your attorney for the moments when your attorneys are in court or unable to respond immediately. Your paralegal will be intimately familiar with the facts of your case and readily available if you need to talk or have questions.

Community Involvement

For the past five years, our firm has been a statewide sponsor of the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina.  The mission of the Brain Injury Association of NC is to offer help, hope, and a voice for people with brain injury and their families.  Learn more about the BIA and their library of stories providing guidance and hope for those suffering from brain injury.

Our firm's involvement in the local school system through the Hometown Hero Award has been recognized throughout the state as a platform to recognized outstanding educators who dedicate their lives to our children's education. You can learn more about our Hometown Heros program by clicking here.

Compensation & Fees

We handle all personal injury and catastrophic injury claims on a contingent fee basis, which means you pay us nothing unless we obtain compensation for you. It also means that you pay the same amount regardless of how many attorneys or experts we put on your case, which ensures the most qualified attorney will handle your claim.
