Kanas City Truck Accident Case Experience
Being injured in a truck accident can be a life changing event. Due to the speed, weight and force often involved in 18-wheeler accidents and other truck crashes, the potential for serious, permanent, disabling injury and death are all too real. Even though the truck driver may be clearly at fault, the trucking company and their insurance carrier often aren’t looking out for your best interests. To make your situation even more difficult, a common defense tactic is to drag the case out and make you jump to all sorts of hoops to prove the trucking company’s liability and your damages.
Properly representing people injured in a truck accident has sometimes been described like handling a car accident case on steroids. The stakes are potentially much higher for everyone involved-the injured person, as well as the trucking and insurance companies. Trucking companies are typically required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which contain hundreds of pages complex regulations involving concepts like driver qualifications, hours-of-service, logging requirements, to name just a few. And it goes on from there. So it’s easy to see where the “car accident on steroids” comparison comes from and why specialized training and resources can be very valuable in these cases.
At Flick Law Firm, we have specialized truck accident, training, resources and litigation experience. For example, Senior Attorney and Litigation Director Lawrence Flick has successfully completed a specialized Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations training program through the United States Department of Transportation. We have successfully handled truck accident claims since 1995, and have the training, resources and experience needed to successfully handle this type of case and obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

A Lawyer with Medical Training
Personal injury cases usually involve medical issues, yet most law schools and lawyers’ continuing education programs provide little medical background for attorneys. To acquire this invaluable knowledge, Attorney Lawrence Flick studied anatomy, medical history and physical examination, radiology, trauma medicine, pain management, medications, spine problems and other areas of medicine at the University of Kansas Medical School. This training has been instrumental in helping understand and research medical issues in cases, confront common medical defenses raised by insurance companies and question treating physicians and insurance company doctors about medical issues.

Personal Injury Practice Areas
A car accident can be unavoidable—even if you are doing everything right. For example, you are stopped at a red light. The driver behind you is distracted or isn’t paying attention and rear-ends you. The scenario is all too familiar. While a number of things can cause a car accident, a significant percentage of auto accidents stem from the negligence of another person. Common causes of these accidents are driving too fast, following too closely, not yielding the right-of-way, or disobeying traffic signs and signals. The other person may be drunk, driving while distracted or experiencing driver fatigue. Injury severity ranges from relatively minor short-term problems to permanent disabilities and fatalities. These include neck and back sprains/strains, bulging or herniated discs, joint injuries, fractures, broken bones, head injury, concussion, whiplash, brain injury, spinal cord injury and in other cases, death. We can help determine who at fault for the accident and obtain the compensation for your damages.
Commercial vehicles like 18-wheelers operate day and night, in all weather conditions and often transport hazardous materials. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, including the big-rig and cargo. Hitting you at up to highway speed, the risk of catastrophic injury and death is obvious in a semi or other large truck wreck. Injuries that take years to recover from, or may be permanent like brain injury, head and facial injury, back and neck injuries, joint injury, crush injury, burns and multiple injuries/fatalities are not unusual in these crashes. Common causes include inattention, driver fatigue, distracted driving, following too closely, improper lane changes, weather conditions, speeding, not yielding the right-of-way and problems with critical safety equipment.
Motorcyclists and bicyclists may at times be at fault for accidents on the road, though many crashes involving bicycles and motorcycles occur due to the negligence of drivers of other vehicles. Cyclists don’t have protection like seat belts, airbags, or a steel body surrounding them, and are therefore at a major disadvantage when in collisions with larger vehicles. The result can be serious injuries like traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, complex fractures, loss of limbs and other life-changing conditions. Long-term problems and permanent disability are not uncommon and the risk of death is also significantly higher. Studies show that for every mile driven, motorcyclists are four times more likely than automobile occupants to sustain injuries in a motor vehicle accident, and are 21 times more prone to fatality. Though motorcycles comprise less than 2 percent of registered vehicles in the country, motorcyclists account for 8 percent of all traffic fatalities. We can help establish liability, thanks and. Handle complex insurance claims and obtain compensation for your damages.
Each year, there are more than 100,000 pedestrian accidents in the United States with a pedestrian hurt in a motor vehicle accident roughly every 8 minutes and one killed every 113 minutes on average. Pedestrians can do everything right such as walking in the crosswalk with a green light and still be hit by drivers who do not see them. Pedestrian accidents can occur anywhere a person may be walking, such as a school zone, parking lot, sidewalk or residential neighborhood. A negligent driver may be driving while intoxicated, run a red light, take a turn too quickly, driving while on a mobile phone, or drive through a crosswalk without looking out for pedestrians. Very serious injuries and even death can result since the pedestrian has little to no protection against a vehicle’s impact. Common injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents are brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones and amputations.
