How Fisher Stark Can Help

When hiring a personal injury attorney in Buncombe County, North Carolina, there are key things to remember. And with serious injuries, maximizing any compensation from a verdict or settlement is critical. Because, in any personal injury settlement or verdict, it is the at-fault party’s insurance company which pays. Therefore, the law firm hired deals directly with the insurance company, allowing you to focus on healing. So, seeking maximum compensation for future medical expenses as well as pain and suffering is our focus at Fisher Stark, P.A.

So the reality is, a law firm's reputation matters very much to insurance companies. And in Asheville, the experienced attorneys at Fisher Stark, P.A., have a trusted, well-regarded approach as aggressive trial lawyers. Being willing to take our client's cases to court, if necessary, gives insurance companies a strong incentive to offer a large settlement and avoid the courtroom.

But settlements, though, are just one part of the complex personal injury claim puzzle. Other important injury issues include getting help with medical bills, dealing with the demands of insurance companies, liens on any money you may recover, and organizing all your records and evidence should the case go to court.

Fisher Stark, P.A., has more than 50 years' combined experience providing enormous value to our clients, including more than 1,000 jury and non-jury trials. We are based in Asheville, North Carolina, but also serve surrounding communities including Woodfin, Weaverville, Mars Hill, Black Mountain, Swannanoa, Fairview, Fletcher, Arden, Biltmore Forest, Hendersonville, Candler, Canton, and Waynesville. In addition to Buncombe County, we also help clients surrounding areas including the counties of Madison, Yancey, McDowell, Rutherford, Polk, Henderson, Transylvania, Jackson, and Haywood.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring Fisher Stark

With any personal injury case, victims often have countless questions. So, at Fisher Stark, P.A., we make each case as easy as possible for you and your loved ones. We know it's a very difficult time for you and your family. So, here are some frequently asked questions to common questions:

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

In North Carolina, personal injury attorneys are typically paid on a contingency basis. So, this means that you pay nothing out of your own pocket. Instead, Fisher Stark only gets paid in the event of a successful settlement or verdict. The typical contingency fee for a personal injury case is anywhere from 33 to 40 percent.

SHOULD I WAIT TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY UNTIL I AM BETTER?

The longer that you wait the more likely that important evidence will be lost. Remember, while you are unrepresented, a multi-million dollar insurance company is using its resources to avoid paying you fairly. Hire an attorney to focus on the financial aspects of the case while you focus on the most important part- your health and well-being.

WHAT TYPE OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?

The lawyers at Fisher Stark have more than 50 years' combined trial experience. We handle virtually every type of personal injury court case. And, we've helped clients outside of Asheville, North Carolina too. Our firm has successfully handled cases throughout the country and all across North Carolina.

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL CASE TAKE TO RESOLVE?

The good news is that once a lawsuit heads to trial, a final verdict happens relatively quickly. But, keep in mind that the North Carolina court system proceeds at different speeds depending on the number of cases for trial in that county. And at Fisher Stark, P.A. our experience is that cases typically take between 12-18 months from the time of filing a case to the time that we appear at trial in front of a jury for you.

HOW OFTEN DO CASES ACTUALLY GO TO COURT?

This depends on the type of law firm that you hire. If insurance companies think that they have a valid case, then they may be willing to risk a court verdict. But, if they know that they will be facing a trial law firm like Fisher Stark, they generally try to avoid court and offer a cash settlement. Once a settlement offer is made, you decide if it is acceptable. Until you accept the offer, the attorneys at Fisher Stark P.A., prepare your case for trial. So, while we are preparing to argue your case in front of a trial jury, many times it is possible to reach a cash settlement before a trial.

WHAT TYPES OF SERVICES DOES FISHER STARK PROVIDE

You can think of Fisher Stark, P.A. as a full-service Asheville personal injury law firm. We do more than just navigate the court system for you and argue cases in front of judges and juries. We also help you gather important medical and insurance records, negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies, work to resolve outstanding medical liens, and devote our efforts to obtaining the highest possible compensation for you.

WHAT TYPE OF BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?

In addition, both Perry Fisher and Brad Stark have outstanding individual AV ratings. And both lawyers have extensive service to the Asheville legal community with both having served as president of the local bar. Our firm is a member of the American Association for Justice, the North Carolina Association of Trial Attorneys, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Moreover, we back our reputation up with a first-rate record of successfully winning court cases.

- Robert M

"Upon referral from a family member, I contacted Fisher Stark Cash for help with my custody case. Brad took the time to listen to my story and help me develop the best plan for myself and my child. The firm truly put my mind at ease with how accessible they were. I tried a few other firms to discuss rates and for consultations, but just felt lost in the shuffle! Fisher Stark took care of my case and helped negotiate a great custody agreement that has been good for myself, my daughter and her mother. I would absolutely use them again, but hopefully I never need to!!"

- C.S.

"Perry Fisher and Brad Stark advised us about a mountain lot in WNC, regarding a non-performing real estate developer. Given that we live 14 hours away, we needed a law firm that was familiar with NC laws, had empathy for our situation, and which could guide our escalation of the issue toward a beneficial resolution. Working with Perry, we gained an initial victory with a very satisfactory financial settlement. We're followed his guidance on another aspect of the dispute too. We highly recommend Perry (and Brad) for their excellent legal work on our behalf."

- Wonda F.

I hired Perry to represent me through my first business lawsuit, which involved complex contractual terms for my online business and negotiating with a very challenging opposing party. I was pleased to find that Mr. Fisher not only has a solid understanding of how to remedy online business torts, but he also has superior negotiating skills. Throughout my experience, Perry proved to be an authentic and honest communicator. He gave me individualized attention, listened to my concerns, and effectively unraveled my complex situation. I always walked away from our meetings feeling at ease, empowered, and knowing that my case was in good hands.

- C.R.

"Mr. Fisher responded quickly to my inquiry about navigating a complicated third-party insurance dispute. While he was not personally able to be my advocate in this issue, he did volunteer honest, rational advice on how to proceed. Having his knowledge and insight helped me to be less distressed about the situation. I am grateful for his guidance."

- Emily

"Excellent law firm. The staff is very thorough and competent. I am always confident that my issues are handled professionally and any resolutions are the best outcome that can be expected. I have never been concerned that I was not getting the attention I need and the best advice possible."
