Plano, TX Accident and Injury Lawyers That Help You Get Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
Dear personal injury victim –
The saying “America is a litigious society” often comes off as a criticism. Sure, some people and their lawyers certainly misuse the legal system for personal profit.
You hear about Cleanthi Peters suing Universal Studios $15,000 because its haunted house was “too scary” (the case was dismissed). Or, there’s the 1991 case of Richard Overton, who sued Anheuser-Busch for falsely advertising women in bikinis would appear when he drank Bud Light (he wasn’t successful).
But those are only the ridiculous, and extreme, cases that capture media and public attention. It gives you the false perception people only use the legal system to get as much money as they can.
That’s certainly one way you can do it, but it’s not really ethical and courts will call you out on your absurd behavior, labelling your suit “frivolous,” and not giving you any compensation at all.
But should you really pay for your own medical bills and lost time at work when someone else in fact causes your injuries?
Let’s say you were responsibly walking down the aisle at a grocery or fashion store. The company forgot to put a sign up notifying you the floor was wet.
You slip, fall, and end up twisting your ankle to the point where you are unable to work for a week. You contact the store management and report the situation, but they never get back to you. A few contacts later, and you still haven’t made any progress.
You have to go to the doctor to get an evaluation. Fortunately, he says nothing major is needed – just ice your ankle, stay off of it for a week, and you’ll be fine.
Now, you have 5 days of missed work, and a couple of doctor visits to pay for. Not a huge deal, but it certainly wasn’t your fault your ankle got hurt.
Should you be the one taking financial responsibility in that situation?
Or, let’s talk about another. Say you’re driving down a busy city street in Plano. You go slightly above the speed limit, but nothing dangerous.
You hit a red light and stop just like you should. It turns green, and you go just like you’re supposed to. But another careless driver thinks they can quickly sneak through their own red light and they smash into you.
You come to consciousness a bit later, still in your car. It looks like everything’s going to be okay. You’re in a significant amount of pain, but you don’t notice any broken bones.
After a few visits to your family doctor, you find out it’s going to take a few months of physical therapy to get your back and neck feeling good again. And they also say you shouldn’t go to work for the next month.
You weren’t able to get the other person’s contact information because you had to take care of your own injuries. Their insurance company has contacted you a few times, but you’re too afraid to pick up the phone and talk to them.
Should you have to foot the bill for someone else’s careless actions?
Mullen & Mullen, Accident and Injury Lawyers in Plano, Help You Get the Fair Compensation You Deserve!
We’ll be right up front: we’re high-integrity lawyers who pride ourselves in serving you and always doing the right thing. We don’t help you cash in for your big payday and sue for millions – when it’s really only thousands you deserve.
But, we do hold careless and negligent people, and even billion-dollar corporations, accountable for their actions. And we’ll help you get fair compensation for minor injuries, like twisted ankles, to even very severe injuries, like wrongful death.
Unfortunately, there are many people, businesses, and global corporations who don’t want to take responsibility for their actions. And you shouldn’t be the one having to clean up their mess.
That’s why accident and personal injury victims in Plano turn to Regis and Shane Mullen for help. It’s our goal to minimize your legal costs. Mention this website, and you only pay a 28% fee (instead of 33.35) if we settle your case out of court (about 90% of cases settle out of court). While most Plano accident and injury lawyers pass investigator’s fees on to you, we take care of them ourselves.
And at many law firms, especially bigger ones, you speak to the lawyer handling your case once in person and never see them again. At Mullen & Mullen, we meet with you personally before, during, and after your case. And if you need to talk with our investigator, they visit you at home in-person.
We’ve got more than 3 decades pursuing personal injury cases and accidents of all types.
You pay nothing unless you win (called a “contingency” fee).
So you risk nothing by contacting us and learning whether you have a valid personal injury suit or not.
What are you waiting for?
In Texas, you have just 2 years from the date of the injury to pursue your case, otherwise you can never legally pursue it again (called the “statute of limitations”).
All you have to do is call Mullen & Mullen at 800-371-8751 or contact us online today.
