Flick Law Firm is hyper-focused on delivering high quality representation to people injured in truck and car crashes. Many injury attorneys handle a range of cases like medical malpractice claims, dangerous premises cases like slips and falls, pharmaceutical product liability, work comp and social security disability. Vehicle crash cases are what do. We have helped people injured in crashes from simple rear end collisions to highway crashes involving multiple semis. We have been doing it since 1993. People from the Kansas City area and hundreds of miles away call us for help. Can we help you?
Truck Crashes- Specialized Knowledge Needed for Best Results
Crashes involving 18 wheelers or other big trucks aren’t just another car accident. They shouldn’t be handled like one. Specialized knowledge, skills and resources can make the difference between a win or a loss, a small settlement or a great result. Knowledge of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, commercial vehicle safety rules and driving practices, truck technology, specialized motor carrier insurance rules and trucking company record keeping rules is just some of the know-how that may be needed in your case.
We have successfully represented people injured in truck crashes since 1995. Truck crashes are more than half of our cases. If you were injured in a big truck crash choose your attorney wisely. See our semi truck accident page for more information about these cases and how we can help you.
Many car accident cases present common and recurring factual, legal and medical issues. A few common scenarios like rear end and intersection collisions account for a high percentage of car crashes. Certain injuries, for example neck and back injuries and broken bones, appear frequently in our cases. We have dealt repeatedly with many of the legal issues typical in car accident claims and major car insurance companies you may know from their TV commercials. Dealing with these factual, medical and legal issues repeatedly has let us develop a depth of skill and experience with them. It also lets us focus on acquiring the resources and training to excel, with the goal of providing you the best representation and results.

Federal Court – Going the Extra Mile for You
You may have heard the old expression “Don’t make a federal case out of it.” It means don’t make a big deal out of it. Do you think insurance companies want your lawyer to make a big deal out of your car or other vehicle accident case? Probably not. Why? It’s obvious- so they can pay you less.
For more than 20 years Flick Law Firm has been “making a federal case out of it”. Federal court is limited to larger cases involving citizens of different states or cases involving a question of federal law, so many personal injury cases don’t qualify to be filed there.
Federal court procedures can be more complex and technically demanding than in state court. It’s not easier. In fact, it’s more work and requires additional knowledge and skill. Not surprisingly, personal injury lawyers often prefer to avoid federal court.
Since 1999 we have represented injured clients in Kansas and Missouri federal courts. We have recovered money for them through both jury trial and settlements. Why do we go to this extra work? Because our experience shows that for some cases, filing your case in federal court can produce better results than pursuing it in the state court system. Going the extra mile and having the know-how to successfully litigate cases in federal court reflects our commitment to high quality work and results for you.
