Fisher Stark is a trial law firm that focuses on fully representing the injured in court. “If a lawyer is not capable of going to court, their clients rarely get the best recovery," said Brad Stark. With professionalism, compassion and a combined courtroom experience of more than 40 years, we help our clients maximize their recoveries in the court. Our practice areas include wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, personal injury, trucking accidents, arbitration, catastrophic injuries, condemnation, car accidents, product liability, pedestrian/cyclist litigation, 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 are able to walk away restored from whatever position left you in need of an attorney.
At Fisher Stark, we act with honesty and integrity. We understand the need to work with quality experts and caregivers to help our clients receive justice. Unfortunately, we are unable to take every case. Our discerning approach to the cases we take allows us to give our full attention and to allot plenty of time to the cases that we do pursue. Because of this selective approach, we are able to devote the time and resources needed to show the jury the true merits of the events at issue. Not every juror wants to listen to all of the facts and evidence but we work hard to present the evidence they need to reach their verdict.
Timeline of a Personal Injury Case WHAT TO EXPECT
Every personal case is a little different. The purpose of this is to give you a brief overview on what to expect, when events occur in relationship to the overall resolution of a personal injury claim. Personal injury lawsuits are to recover what was unnaturally taken from someone through the fault or negligence of someone else.
OUR AREAS OF PRACTICE
Our attorneys serve the people of North Carolina in the following practice areas:
Personal injury can occur through involvement in an automobile accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle or pedestrian accident, trucking accident or an accident on a construction site, workplace, or any other location. Personal Injury Law also includes injuries that result from medical malpractice or product liability, as well as wrongful death, nursing home abuse and premises liability. The term “personal injury” includes physical, as well as psychological injury.
A warranty is a means to ensure that companies stand by the quality of their product. Many of the products consumers purchase, as well as services they use, also come with express warranties. If the satisfaction that was guaranteed by the express warranty is not provided, some people will pursue lawsuits. North Carolina consumer protection laws are important to the safety and well-being of the community. Additionally, North Carolina law imposes certain warranties on the sale or lease of products and on the modification or repair of products. These are known as implied warranties.
Condemnation law is the area of the law that deals with eminent domain, the power of the government to take private property for a public purpose. Although the government has the right to take your property for public purpose, you are entitled to recover the full fair market value of the property taken, including the damages to the remainder of the property.
Construction law is an area of the law that regulates acts of improvement or alteration of residential or commercial structures. This area of the law touches everything from labor, taxes and real estate to city planning and commercial transportation; it can apply to the most basic or complex of construction processes. Most folks get their first experience with construction law when they remodel their home or build a residence or second home.
Product liability law dictates the liability of manufacturers for injuries that result from defective and unreasonably dangerous products. This area of the law covers a broad range of products including automobiles, building materials, industrial machinery and equipment, pharmaceutical and medical devices, food, beverages, tobacco, and other consumer goods. We use products every day.
Victims of brain injury and their families face unique, life-altering issues, making this an incredibly complex area of medicine and law. These clients need timely and effective advice that not only addresses the complex medical and legal issues involved, but also the significant human elements.
Arbitration is a dispute resolution process where one or more impartial persons (the “arbitrators”) decide a controversy after the parties have had an opportunity to present their facts and views. Unlike mediation, where the neutral is a facilitator whose job it is to assist the parties in understanding the issues and to guide the parties into making their own decision, an arbitrator has the duty, much like a judge or jury, of making a decision for the parties when they are unable to do so.
Business torts occur with the intentional, negligent, or improper interference with the business interests of another. This can include cases involving fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, partnership disputes, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair business practices and competition, and breach of contracts.
Business law deals with a broad range of legal issues affecting businesses, partnerships, and corporations. In today’s complex business world the corporate attorney is an integral part of a successful business team.
