How Our Attorneys Can Assist You with Your Personal Injury Claim

Learn Why You Should Not Go It Alone. Here’s How a Mullen & Mullen Attorney Can Assist You with Your Personal Injury Claim.
Don’t Go It Alone
We previously discussed the importance of not providing a recorded statement to insurance companies without the assistance of legal counsel. An injury attorney can help make sure you are asked fair questions, prepare you for the questions you are likely to face, and instruct you not to answer “gotcha” questions designed to allow the adjuster to delay, deny, or devalue your claim.

We are sometimes asked to assist someone after they have already attempted to negotiate a settlement on their own. These are good people who are usually absolutely shocked when the insurance adjuster – who had been acting like a trusted friend – suddenly offers them pennies on the dollar. In fact, adjusters routinely offer unrepresented injured victims less than their incurred medical bills alone… […]

4 Ways to Avoid Damaging Your Personal Injury Case

Here are four ways to avoid damaging your personal injury case brought to you by the attorneys at Mullen & Mullen Law Firm.

1. Don’t Provide a Recorded Statement Without Counsel
We previously discussed the importance of minimizing gaps in treatment to avoid damaging your case. A lengthy delay in seeking medical care and/or sporadic treatment can lead to a significant decline in case value.

Often clients retain us after they have already provided a recorded statement of the accident to the insurance company and that’s okay. We should still be able to assist with the case. Sometimes accidents are straight forward – as in a rear-end collision. Sometimes an independent witness is available to provide an unbiased account. Sometimes you get a fair adjuster who asks fair questions. Here’s the thing – sometimes you don’t.

So here’s some straight talk: Insurance adjusters often try to deny as many claims as they can. After […]

2019 Accident & Injury Scholarship Winner

We are pleased to announce the winner for our 2019 Regis L. Mullen Accident & Injury Scholarship: Makynsie Bancroft. Below is her compelling story and winning essay.
It was my mom’s birthday, September 20, 2009, when we were on our way home from visiting my dad for the weekend. I was sick that night, throwing up into an orange plastic cup. At about 8:45, as “Party in the USA” played on the radio, a sixteen year old girl who was texting and driving crossed the defined yellow lines and hit our car head on.

As I try to comprehend what just took place, I looked down to see the orange plastic cup shattered in my hand, with the pieces all over the floorboard. I then looked to my right to see my three year old brother screaming, and although the left side of my body was broken in four places, I used […]

African-American Children 4-7 Account for a Massive 47% of Pedestrian Fatalities

Why do all racial minorities’ children, including African-Americans, account for a disproportionately larger share of car-pedestrian fatalities? Find out what the research says and what you can do about it.
A study published at the National Institute of Mental Health found that in the 4-7 age group, 47% of all car-pedestrian fatalities happened to African-American children.

They also accounted for 37% of pedestrian fatalities in the 8-15 year-old group.

Out of all races, that’s by far the highest rate.

And that same study found children of all non-Caucasian races are more likely to be involved in fatal car-pedestrian accidents than Caucasian children.
Why Do Racial Minorities Get Involved in Fatal Pedestrian Accidents More Frequently?
So, the first question that comes to mind is, “Why does this happen?”

Because when you understand the why, then you can work on what to do about it.

Unfortunately, the study humble acknowledged it did not know exactly why. But it did come […]

Shane V. Mullen Named a Top Three Personal Injury Lawyer in Dallas by Three Best Rated®

Three Best Rated®, an online service with more than 1.7 million monthly customers, named Shane V. Mullen one of its three best personal injury lawyers in Dallas, TX for 2019. He also received this award for 2018. The distinction came following his passing of a rigorous 50-point analysis.
“I always aim to get personal injury clients the biggest settlement possible, while also providing compassionate service.

For example, we employ a private investigator rather than contracting one. This saves client’s money on top of the reduced contingency fee we offer which is below the industry average. We also have relationships with medical professionals and institutions who delay billing until completion of their claim, which saves them a ton of stress. We intentionally keep our firm small, so each case gets attention, […]

Insist on an Investigation & Gather Evidence at the Accident Scene

Avoid Damaging Your Personal Injury Case Part 3
In part two we discussed the importance of not having gaps in your medical treatment to avoid damaging your personal injury case. Insurance adjusters use a gap in your medical care to suggest that your injuries were not serious or that you may have sustained a subsequent injury unrelated to the accident at issue. Complying with your doctor’s treatment plan and making scheduled appointments is critical to your recovery and greatly impacts the value of your case.
Insist on an Investigation & Gather Evidence at the Accident Scene
Failing to gather evidence at the scene of a car wreck or other type of accident is another way you can seriously damage your case. Let’s say you are in stop-and-go traffic on the Dallas North Tollway during your morning commute. You’re minding your own business when an inattentive driver – furiously texting away – doesn’t realize traffic is […]
