Josh Vick grew up in the small town of Camden, Alabama, where he learned from an early age that there is no substitute for hard work, dedication to a cause, and doing what you love. For Josh, the practice of law is the perfect opportunity to apply those principles on a daily basis.
Josh’s practice is entirely devoted to civil litigation, with an emphasis on catastrophic injuries, medical malpractice, product liability, and commercial litigation. In his first jury trial with Goldasich, Vick & Fulk, Josh helped the firm obtain a $3,500,000 verdict in a medical malpractice action filed on behalf of an individual who was paralyzed as a result of negligent medical treatment. The verdict was the largest for a medical malpractice claim in the history of Walker County, Alabama and was subsequently affirmed by the Supreme Court of Alabama on appeal.
More recently, Josh participated in a medical malpractice trial that set records for both the length of the trial and the verdict awarded. In that case, Goldasich, Vick & Fulk represented a young boy who had suffered a catastrophic brain injury as the result of a physician’s failure to diagnose and treat his bacterial meningitis. The trial lasted five weeks and resulted in a $10,000,000 verdict for the plaintiff. Over the course of his career, Josh has helped his clients secure more than $21,000,000 in verdicts and settlements.
In 2014, Josh Vick was accepted as a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership in this group is limited to attorneys who have obtained multi-million dollar verdicts, and less than 1% of attorneys in the United States are members.
In 2016, he was named to the Mid-South Super Lawyers list of “Rising Stars” in the legal profession. Attorneys under the age of 40 are independently evaluated and chosen for the Rising Stars list based upon peer recognition and professional achievement.
Josh attended Auburn University, where he studied public relations and business. After graduating from Auburn, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he worked in the United States Senate. He later returned to Alabama to pursue a Juris Doctor degree from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and joined Goldasich, Vick & Fulk in 2011.
