Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide poisoning incidents are rarely “accidents.” They are often caused by careless installation or inadequate maintenance of indoor heaters, furnaces, stoves, grills, and fireplaces. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless gas making it difficult for an individual that is being poisoned to know and understand what is happening to them and results in about 400 carbon monoxide deaths per year on average in the United States.
Our firm represents families that have lost a loved one due to preventable carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide poisoning can also cause an individual to suffer severe and irreversible brain damage, forever changing their lives. If you or someone you know has suffered the loss of a loved one or has been injured as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning we have the resources to fully investigate the situation, determine the cause and to hold those responsible fully accountable.
How Can Our Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawyers Help You?
Individuals who have been affected by incidents involving carbon monoxide poisoning typically have many unanswered questions. How could this have occurred? Why were there no detectors or alarms? Who is responsible? The first thing we will do is to listen carefully to your story. We will then gather the available facts, and answer your questions as accurately as possible based on the available information. Next, we will begin our own investigation with a team of experts who have the knowledge and experience to accurately determine the failures that allowed the carbon monoxide poisoning to occur.
Has Your Firm Handled Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Cases Previously?
Yes. Founding partner, Charles Monnett, and other members of our firm have been involved in high profile cases against hotels and motels, the hospitality and other industries. We have the experience to successfully handle these cases through settlement or trial.
If carbon monoxide poisoning occurs at a business or hotel, the business’ insurance company will likely have a team of lawyers and investigators who deploy within hours to the scene and may attempt to shift the blame or discard evidence to protect their corporate clients– not you.

I was involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, so I contacted the attorney that I had used in a previous case. I explained to them the situation and they advised me that there was no way that I would be able to recover anything so they would not take my case. I then contacted Charles Monnett & Associates and they accepted my case and I am happy to say that their expert staff was able to settle my case with the insurance companies for $128,000.
In October 2010, my pregnant wife and I were in a horrendous accident in Charlotte, NC, caused by a drunk driver. We were struck head on by the driver traveling at nearly 100mph and sustained many life threatening injuries. We lost our unborn baby and were fighting to stay alive ourselves. This is not a time we could even think about an attorney, but fortunately, people we care about found Mr. Monnett! This incredible man visited us in the hospital at our request and made everything so easy for us during such a trying time. There's not another person on earth with whom I would trust such an important endeavor. His experience and knowledge overshadowed the defense by leaps and bounds. Mr. Monnett remained steadfast and confident throughout the process, while ultimately prevailing, it was amazing. I offer my highest recommendation to this great man and his top notch firm.
Charles Monnett was very helpful and lead me through the whole legality of my case. Charles was always available and informative on this process.
