How We Can Help You
When hiring a personal injury attorney in Asheville or anywhere else in Western North Carolina, there are several key things to remember.
As with any serious injury claim, seeking to maximize the compensation from a verdict or settlement is critical. This is because the compensation received can be used to offset medical bills, future therapy costs and lost wages.
With 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 and recovery.
This is why seeking maximum compensation for future medical expenses as well as pain and suffering is our focus here at Fisher Stark, P.A.
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 are just one part of the complex personal injury legal puzzle. Other important issues with a personal injury case include: getting help with medical bills, dealing with the demands of the 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 40 years of combined experience providing enormous value to our clients, including more than 100 jury and non-jury trials. We are based in Asheville NC but we also serve the surrounding communities and counties of Western North Carolina.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
