Dallas Accident and Injury Lawyers
What Should You Do If Someone Else’s Negligent Actions Hurt You?
Something happened and you got hurt. Maybe you slipped and fell while walking on a wet store floor. Maybe another driver ran through a red light or stop sign and hit you.
Maybe you responsibly took a prescription medication and experienced worse illnesses than the medication solves. Or maybe you drove your vehicle and got injured because of a defect the manufacturer failed to disclose.
If you experience any of these situations, you may have a valid personal injury lawsuit. As long as you act responsibly like a reasonable person would, you aren’t at fault for your injuries.
And your injuries could range from the mild:
- A damaged vehicle
- An aching back
- Missing a couple days of work
To the very severe:
- Multiple broken bones
- Permanent damage to your organs
- A permanent inability to do your normal job duties
- Depression because of these dramatic life changes
Unfortunately, when you get hurt, very often the other party has no interest in fairly compensating you for your injuries. They’ll find any way they can to minimize their legal and financial responsibility.
What Should You Do If You Believe You Have a Valid Personal Injury Case?
For starters, if the other party’s insurance company gets involved, don’t speak to them at all. It’s their goal to get you to say or agree to things that minimize their payout.
As soon as you’re able, either you or a loved one should contact our Dallas accident and injury lawyers.
At Mullen and Mullen, you don’t pay unless we win your case. So you risk absolutely nothing by contacting us online or calling 800.371.8751.
Why Choose the Accident and Injury Lawyers at Mullen & Mullen?
After all, you have a number of lawyers to choose from. For starters, we want to minimize your legal fees and maximize your compensation. If you mention you found us on this website, we charge a 28% (instead of 33.3%) fee for the final settlement amount. However, your case must settle outside of court, and about 90% of all cases do.
Another way we cut your costs is by hiring our own private, in-house investigator. Rather than pass the fees on to you, we take care of those fees ourselves.
You also get personal service. At many personal injury law firms, your first meeting with your lawyer is also your last. However, we personally meet with you before, during, and after your case at a time convenient for you. Our investigator also happily meets with you at your home or office for new appointments.
Finally, we have more than 3 decades of legal experience successfully resolving all types of personal injury cases.
We believe it’s a privilege and honor to serve you. It’s our goal to work for you and make sure you get the just legal outcome you deserve.

What Should You Do If You Suffer a Personal Injury?
It depends on the type of accident and injuries you experience, but in general this is what you should do:
- If your injuries aren’t serious promptly report (a several-day delay harms the credibility of your claim) the accident to the property owner or police (if necessary), but do get medical attention immediately
- If your injury happens on public property, report it to the city or town if you can
- When you make your report, be as brief as possible until you have spoken with a lawyer
- If you have serious injuries, get medical attention right away because you don’t want them to get any worse than they are
- As you get treatment, report the exact reason why you need it to medical professionals
- If you get treatment from emergency personnel, get a copy of the accident report as soon as you can
- If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, don’t talk to the owner at all
- If you have the ability, take photos of the exact location of your fall and note the time and conditions surrounding the accident. If you don’t, have a friend or family member visit the scene as soon as possible and take pictures.
- Get witness information if possible
- At home, safely store the clothing and shoes you wore at the scene of the accident
- Before you sign anything or talk to any insurance companies, speak with a personal injury attorney first
If you follow those steps, you will have a strong case. Now, it’s important to get in touch with our accident and injury lawyers in Dallas.
