North Carolina Product Liability Lawyers
Injured by a Dangerous or Defective Product?
When someone is injured or killed by a defective product, the manufacturer or seller may be liable the victim for the harm caused under the law of products liability. While there is no traditional “strict liability” for defective products in North Carolina, a manufacturer or seller can still be held responsible for negligence in the design or manufacture of a product, failure to warn, and breach of warranty.
Responsibility of Manufacturers To Warn of Danger
Product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for consumer use before placing the product on the market. Otherwise, manufacturers have a duty to warn the consumer of the inherent dangers of the product. Failure to do so constitutes negligence. When this negligence leads to serious injuries, or fatalities, the manufacturer or seller may be responsible for the harm caused by the product.

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.
