Skylar is in her senior year at high school and has everything to look forward to in life. A bright, popular student and the leader of the school marching band, she wins a weekend holiday at an exclusive beach resort. Then tragedy strikes. Diving into the hotel pool she hits the bottom and breaks her neck, paralyzing her, and confining her to a wheel chair for the rest of her life. Her distraught parents seek a personal injury lawyer and turn to Albert Stark for help. At first Stark, an experienced and dedicated defender, doubts that a case can be made for negligence on the part of the hotel. But as he carefully gathers evidence he becomes convinced that the depth markings were confusing, that the "3" feet marker could be mis-read as "8" feet; and that Skylar had, as she stated, genuinely believed she was diving into the deep-end of that pool and that it was, indeed, eight feet deep. With further investigation Stark was able show that there were no depth markings on the pool deck. On this basis he was able to make a strong case for negligence against the hotel. He then steered the family through a difficult mediation process, which ended with a settlement of $17,000,000 dollars, and further advised Skylar and her parents on appropriate investments to provide for her lifetime needs and opportunities.

In Insider Secrets to Winning Your Personal Injury Battle Albert Stark, a seasoned trial lawyer, presents eight painful cases of personal injury, each in its way as moving as that of Skylar, showing that to win cases legal defenders have to be committed, caring, tenacious, and tough. But Stark does much more than show how cases are won.

Imagine a nationally recognized award-winning trial lawyer making the above statement and meaning it, and you'll begin to know Albert Stark, the smart, successful, and unusually empathetic personal injury attorney who wrote this book "to help seriously injured people survive the heat and drama of the courtroom [as well as]life beyond the verdict." This is a fascinating and immensely readable account of Stark's work, one which goes far beyond the usual lawyerly fare. Each of Stark's cases, brought to the reader in narratives reminiscent more of short stories than legal summaries, is as much about his own personal process, his coming-of-age as a trial lawyer representing people with grievous neurological injuries, as it is about the individual patient/client, his family, and most important -- Stark's relationship with them after the trial is over and the settlement reached. In fact, Stark's clients are reminiscent of returning Iraq war veterans whose physical injuries are but the tip of the iceberg. It's what comes afterward that recommends Stark's book to all of us ... the havoc these traumatic injuries wreak with the patient's emotional life, not to mention the lives of his family and friends. Stark is one of a kind, a lawyer with a huge heart and for whom no case is ever over. This is what it's really like to advocate for the seriously injured, Stark writes, and so it is. In Insider Secrets, Stark reminds us that we are all human, that without warning horrific damage can be done to us or to those we love, and that even if our voices are silenced, our lives, like those of Stark's clients, demand compassion and understanding. A must-read read for professionals and lay-people alike.
