You’re probably wondering what to do now. Within days of your collision, medical bills arrive in the mail. An insurance adjuster will call, asking questions about the collision and your injuries. You may be asked to provide a recorded statement. There are different kinds of insurance coverages that will need to be examined. It can be a confusing and intimidating process.
CALL US BEFORE YOU TALK TO THE OTHER DRIVER'S INSURANCE COMPANY.
Charles G. Monnett III & Associates has been litigating cases since 1983. The firm’s attorneys have over 60 years of combined experience in many areas of personal injury law.

Over the years, we have helped many of our clients and their families recover from the devastating impact that a personal injury or death has on their lives. We handle all serious personal injury cases, including:
- Head trauma, such as concussions or other traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
TRACTOR TRAILER COLLISIONS
Collisions involving tractor trailers, or “18 wheelers,” and other commercial trucks require attorneys who are familiar with the important legal and technical issues these cases involve. For example, there are special federal regulations that govern the safety of tractor trailers, including the number of hours a commercial truck driver is allowed to be out on the road and the minimum amount of insurance each truck should have. Additionally, cases involving tractor trailers will often depend on the interpretation of technical information kept by a data recorder or “black box.” Let us put our years of experience handling tractor trailer cases to work for you.
CAR, TRUCK, & MOTORCYCLE CRASHES ARE NOT "ACCIDENTS"
Car crashes are not “accidents” – they are preventable. When each of us gets behind the wheel, we have a duty to keep our eyes on the road and to operate our vehicle safely at all times. Unfortunately, car crashes continue to be too frequent. Some common causes of motor vehicle collisions include:
- Driving too fast for the weather or road conditions
- Talking or texting on a cell phone (distracted driving)
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving when tired
Each of these causes involves unsafe decisions that put lives at risk.
YOU DON'T CALL IT A "PLANE ACCIDENT," WHY CALL IT A "CAR ACCIDENT"?
WE UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION OF A CAR WRECK.
Representing thousands of clients in similar situations as yours helps us identify whether or not you'll need help with your claim, because not every vehicle crash justifies the services of an attorney. In fact, most vehicle motor crashes can be handled by yourself, which would save you that much needed money to help with matters like new car expenses. Simply put: the more serious your injuries, the better off you will be to hire a lawyer.
If you're unsure, that's ok. Call us for a free case consultation to discuss your claim and help you sort out whether you'll need our services or not.
