Mullen & Mullen Law Firm Can Also Assist You By:

  • Leveling the Playing Field

The insurance company has an army of lawyers. You need effective and skilled representation to protect your interests. Our Dallas injury law firm has exclusively represented accident victims for nearly four decades. At Mullen & Mullen Law Firm we have an established track record of success representing real victims with real injuries and real damages.

Why does this matter?

Think of your injury case as a cake. You only get one opportunity to bake it and you only get one opportunity to serve it the right way.

If you have been hurt in a car accident, premises liability incident, or work accident your only focus should be on recovering from your injuries. You are not in a position to make sure your case is developed properly. In fact, you are probably unaware of the evidence necessary to meet your burden of proof on various issues or of the impact multiple factors, such as venue, have on arriving at a proper claim value. This should be done by a professional.

  • Developing Your Personal Injury Case

A 5-Star Rating for Mullen & Mullen Law Firm by Joe Marquez

Developing your injury claim is essential to a successful recovery. For example, say you have a 3 mm herniated disc in your back as the result of a car accident. Simply submitting medical records and relaying what the doctor told you during appointments won’t move the dial. If you sustained injuries through no fault of your own, you deserve to have answers about what impact those injuries will have on the rest of your life. A whole-person impairment rating can serve as powerful evidence. In other accident cases a life care plan may be necessary to accurately capture future medical costs and to lend credence to both current and anticipated physical limitations and/or restrictions.

Words matter in a personal injury case. It is not enough for your doctor to say you may need a surgery in the future. Such a statement fails to meet the burden of proof necessary to recover damages. Your doctor must indicate that it is likely – i.e. more likely than not – that you will require surgery in the future. That’s not all of it though. You also have to be certain that causation has been adequately addressed. The need for the surgery must be properly connected to the injuries arising from the incident.

  • Presenting Your Personal Injury Claim

You only get one opportunity to put your best foot forward. Initial impressions absolutely matter. Unrepresented accident victims face an uphill climb. Often times they simply submit medical records with a brief letter asking for money with no explanation for how they arrived at the figure.

Straight Talk: When you are unrepresented, insurance adjusters don’t fear denying your demand because – guess what? – they know there’s nothing you can do about it if they offer you something ridiculous. Unrepresented accident victims are essentially bidding against themselves.

Our Dallas personal injury law firm is able to resolve a large percentage of claims without the necessity of litigation but we never hesitate to go that route if it will result in a better recovery for our client. Insurance adjusters know what Mullen & Mullen will do about it if they make an unfair offer.

We routinely utilizes 3d imaging, surgery illustrations, medical videographers, and other cutting-edge demonstrative aides to present our client’s injury case in the most effective manner. At Mullen & Mullen Law Firm we front these expenses – which can be substantial – to properly present the accident claim and maximize our client’s likelihood of a successful recovery.

How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Get Paid?

Every accident victim can afford the best injury attorney, even if they have no monthly income whatsoever. Here’s why:

  • They Only Get Paid When Your Accident Case Wins

Not every personal injury advocate works this way – more on this in a minute. But the vast majority don’t charge you a penny until your accident settlement check is received. Seems fair – doesn’t it? After all, the other party, not you, is responsible for your injuries.

  • They Only Take on Cases They’re Confident They Can Win in Court

It makes sense because it’s in the lawyers’ material interest to do so. They don’t get paid hourly as your case goes along. They get paid only when they win your accident case. It’s a win-win-win situation: lawyers represent legitimate cases, you don’t have to pay lots of money you don’t have, and the legal system doesn’t get burdened with frivolous lawsuits.

How Much Do Personal Injury Attorneys Charge?

A 5-Star Rating for Mullen & Mullen Law Firm by Ravin Francis on Google

The practice of charging a “contingency fee” actually goes back centuries to England. The standard fee for most personal injury lawyers since then has been 33 1/3% – paid after you win your case. Even though most charge this way, there are a few other differences you’ll bump into as you talk to attorneys.

It’s very important to ask your counsel precisely how they charge. And if you run into any evasive answers, or if you encounter some of the situations below, you should immediately thank them for their time and go about your day. Because in many of these cases, you’ve found a dishonest one, and dishonesty in payment could also mean they’re not going to give your case the full attention it deserves.

So here’s what happens out there in the real world:

  1. Some personal injury advocates charge fees of 40-50%. There’s no reason for them to do this, other than to get more money. You’re not getting anything special. Many, even the best, charge the standard 33 1/3%. If it’s any higher than that, no matter how good they make it sound, do not hire them.
  1. Ask whether their contingency fee includes their fee for services. That 33 1/3% should include the counsel’s fees for providing you with their legal services. With some attorneys, it may not. Ask for clarification. If their fee for services goes above the 33 1/3%, do not hire them.
  1. Some personal injury attorneys have you pay case expenses as they work on the case. For example, they need to assemble some bills and talk to an expert witness. They tell you they’d like you to pay for that now, possibly along with some other expenses. It probably means the law firm doesn’t have a lot of money in the bank. Or, they’re just trying to get what they can. Either way, don’t hire that attorney. The vast majority of experts will pay your case expenses and recoup those expenses when your case is resolved.
  1. Ask if you have to pay any costs if your case is unsuccessful. You shouldn’t have to do this. Most personal injury attorneys, and even the most skilled ones, ask for nothing if they don’t succeed. That’s standard operating procedure. But some do. Ignore them and don’t hire them. They should be willing to simply write these off as a tax-deductible business expense.
  1. Some law firms try to get you to pay interest on your personal injury case – don’t fall for it. Because of the enormous cost involved in some cases, some law firms get loans to pay all the costs along the way. They’ll ask you to pay the interest. But you shouldn’t accept this arrangement. That’s because the interest can easily run up to 30%, just like you’d get hit with on a credit card. Plus, it may mean the law firm isn’t experienced at these cases, or isn’t successful, because they don’t have the money in the bank to do the job.

The Rule Is You Should Only Pay A Set Contingency Fee When Your Case Wins

There’s no sense in taking on any other agreement. It often indicates dishonesty or business weakness.

And even the very best injury attorneys you can get normally charge a standard 33.3% fee after they win.

Mullen & Mullen Law Firm only charges a 29% contingency fee when your case settles out of court (about 90% do). Just mention you found us online when you call 214-747-5240 for your free consultation.
