Charlotte Amputation Lawsuit
North Carolina Loss of Limb Settlement
The loss of a limb or other body part is one of the most devastating types of injuries that an individual can sustain. Not only does this affect someone physically, but also mentally, emotionally and often, financially. After the loss, you may not be able to go back to the same job that you were working and your life may need numerous accommodations in order for you to thrive.

Issues Amputees Face
Individuals who have had a body part amputated often face more issues than just how to cope with the medical treatment of the amputation. Amputees often must deal with:
- Retraining (in order to work)
- Wound care
- Home modification
- Vehicle modification
All of these issues require time and money. While an individual may have the time, he or she may be struggling with the money, as lost wages from the inability to work and medical bills may be impacting the victim. Our firm understands these issues and aggressively pursues compensation on your behalf so you can get the assistance you need and support you deserve.
Take Action Now
There are time constraints that limit how long you have after an accident to file a lawsuit in order to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. When meeting with a lawyer at our office, we can discuss any statute of limitation issues and advise you of your rights.

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.
