Balancing the Scales in a Personal Injury Case
In court rooms across America you will often find a picture or statute of the Lady of Justice, a blindfolded woman holding a sword and balance scales.
The blindfold represents the impartiality and objectivity of the law. The law does not let outside factors, such as fame, wealth or politics, influence its decisions.
The sword symbolizes the enforcement of justice. The sword is bare and visible as a sign that justice is transparent and is not a tool of fear. The sword is used to enforce the ruling of the Court as well as protect or defend an innocent party.
The balanced scales represent the obligation of the law to weigh the evidence presented to the court. Each side of a legal case is evaluated in order to have justice. Therefore, it is important for both sides to be equally represented.
Sadly, this is not always the case.
In a personal injury case, insurance companies will have an experienced representative fighting to give out as little as possible. At Fisher Stark, P.A., we strive to ensure the scales are balanced.
Fisher Stark is a trial law firm that focuses on fully representing the injured in court. Fisher Stark invests time and resources to understand how injuries may impact your daily life, and we will help a jury see how valuable what was taken from you truly is.
Some of our practice areas include personal injury, wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, trucking accidents, arbitration, catastrophic injuries, condemnation, car accidents, product liability, pedestrian/cyclist litigation and product liability law.
Our staff is dedicated to making sure your case proceeds smoothly from the moment you come into our office for a consultation to the moment a resolution is reached. We view each client relationship as a long-term relationship.
We care deeply about our clients and know that some legal processes can be emotionally and financially taxing. We work hard to make sure that your experience is as painless as possible and that you can walk away restored from whatever position left you in need of an attorney.
Fisher Stark offers free consultations for personal injury and condemnation matters. We will review your case and let you know if we can help.
The law in North Carolina calls for fair compensation for all the harms, including past and future medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. In certain situations, you may also be able to recover punitive damages.
At Fisher Stark, our role is to guide you through the claims process from dealing insurance adjusters to filing a lawsuit, all the way through a jury trial.
Helping you recover physically, emotionally and financially are our goals. We hope to take the burden of dealing with insurance companies or corporate defendants off your plate so you can focus on a full recovery.
While we may be able to settle your claim without going to court, we are experienced and prepared to take your personal injury lawsuit to trial to achieve a fair and reasonable result. Anyone can simply accept what the insurance company offers, but the true value, a fair value, is often determined by a jury.
