Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

The personal injury attorneys at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates handle a wide range of claim types, including:

Auto Collisions

An auto collision includes rear-end crashes, sideswipes, rollovers, head-on crashes and more. It is highly recommended that you seek medical attention after a motor vehicle collision, even if you do not appear to be injured.

Workers’ Compensation

A workers’ compensation claim occurs when an employee is injured while on the job. Weekly compensation, impairment benefits, medical bills and rehab assistance (depending on the injury sustained) are all covered under workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation does not account for pain and suffering. An experienced attorney can help with this.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can involve a variety of injuries, such as cerebral palsy from birth injuries, failure to diagnose cancer or medication errors. Proving medical malpractice claims can be challenging and carry the burden of proof – evidence that the doctor, medical staff or hospital was negligent. It is highly recommended that you seek legal representation for medical malpractice.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can range from concussions to skull fractures. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can present devastating and long-term effects. Symptoms can include an inability to focus, difficulty with eye and hand coordination and increased aggressive behavior.

Premises Liability

Premises liability occurs when a person is injured from unsafe or defective conditions on someone else’s property. Property owners can be held liable if an injury or damages can be linked to negligence in maintaining their property.

Product Liability

Product liability refers to defective products on the market that have harmed or injured consumers. If a product does not meet standard safety expectations and is later considered dangerous to the public, the manufactures or seller can be held liable for damages.

Abuse/Assault

Sexual assault or abuse occurs with any form of non-consensual or unwanted conduct, including derogatory name calling, threats, rape and more. Not all abuse or assault is sexual and can be acts of violence such as battery or domestic violence.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim can be pursued when a person dies due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct. This type of claim can result from a car accident, medical malpractice, criminal behavior and many other causes stemming from the negligence or carelessness of another.

Hiring a professional advocate with the knowledge and experience to assist you will help ensure a more successful and smooth process.

We will take care of all the details pertaining to your case – from collecting medical records to making phone calls on your behalf. We will help free up your time so you can focus on your healing during this difficult time.

When filing a personal injury claim, remember that time limits apply. In the State of North Carolina, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case gives the injured party three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. An attorney will ensure you meet this deadline.

Most importantly, your attorney can help determine if your injury qualifies for compensation.

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.
