They handled my case great and they are very reliable and dependable. I am forever thankful for them.Michael CogliandroMichael Cogliandro ★★★★★ After 27 years of driving, I was in my first ever accident and it was 1000% the other guys fault. I hired Mullen & Mullen after an uninsured driver blew a stop sign and we collided. Both cars were totaled. I got the medical care I needed and they were even able to get the full policy amount from the insurance of the other cars owner, even though the driver himself was not covered and should not have been driving the car. Not sure how they did that, but that is why you hire Mullen & Mullen to work some magic.Thank you very much.Nothing personal towards Mullen & Mullen, I am very happy with the results, but I hope I never see you again! Haha (Because I hope I am never in an accident again)Gina WestGina West ★★★★★ These are professional people who really do care. I called them for the first time on yesterday about my vehicle accident and Josh represented the firm with compassion. He listened, explained that someone would be contacting me today and minutes later Matt called me. I was given the option of an appointment the same day or early the next morning at my home. Matt provided me with his direct contact phone number and his email address. It's with 27 years of serving, training and experience in the United States Air Force that I give this law firm the highest recommendation. Grateful indeed, Gina W.Marvinette MonroeMarvinette Monroe ★★★★★ I can’t say enough about Josh and the team at Mullen & Mullen with assisting with my motor vehicle accident in Dallas, TX. They’re consistently courteous, professional, and provide exceptional service. I will recommend their team for any motor vehicle accidents and slip & falls.Amber BurnettAmber Burnett ★★★★★ Mullen & Mullen assisted my husband when he was injured in a motor vehicle collision on Main Street. They are absolutely wonderful Frisco personal injury lawyers. They assisted him in getting the medical attention he needed following the wreck. When it came time to negotiate with the insurance companies, they wouldn't take no for an answer. Our attorneys kept the heat on until they finally had to do the right thing. I feel like a lot of firms would have given up and recommended a lawsuit right away but Mullen & Mullen attorneys are super ethical and determined. They were eventually able to help my husband get almost the full available policy limits without the stress and time associated with a lawsuit. If you need a Frisco car accident attorney these are the injury lawyers you should call. Highly recommended!Chad BurnettChad Burnett ★★★★★ I hired Mullen & Mullen following a motor vehicle collision. I could not be more pleased with the Dallas personal injury lawyers I selected. They are the real deal! I was always kept in the loop on case developments. My attorneys sent the at-fault liability carrier multiple demands to make them agree to pay the policy limits. My lawyers also sent my own insurance company several demands to get them to offer me nearly the policy limits. A lot of attorneys would have given up and just recommended filing a lawsuit but Mullen & Mullen kept pounding the insurance companies until they did the right thing. This saved me a tremendous amount of money and time. I'm so very grateful that I found ethical, tenacious, and skilled attorneys to represent me. Mullen & Mullen gets my highest recommendation if you need a Dallas car accident attorney.C.

I have yet to see or hear anything that contradicts her statements! Everyone on the Mullen and Mullen team has been super helpful and kind to me by explaining everything that had and needs to be done to get the case in the right direction.

He provided me with solid advice and the right information to make educated decisions in the process of recovery. He was also extremely responsive and forthcoming whenever I had any questions. I had very little experience in legal matters so everything was new to me.

I am more than pleased with the outcome and would recommend both him and this firm to anyone!Rudy SanchezRudy Sanchez ★★★★★ This was the 1st accident I was involved in.

Always there to listen and showed compassion for my injuries and the situation this accident caused in our lives. Will always recommend.A AA A ★★★★★ It Honestly baffles me to see ANY negative or low reviews on this law firm. My case is far from over, however, I have never known a lawyer or law firm to not only give you their personal cell phone number but to also respond within 15 minutes. Never a complaint on the 10 plus text messages asking questions or the 2-3 paragraph e-mails. Never telling you it's to late or they are off the clock. They are NEVER off the clock. This firm has two or three lawyers dealing with numerous clients and STILL manage to do all they can to make you feel you are the only one. Try to remember they are human. They truly do everything to put you and your recovery first. The process is long but not something they have any control over. They don't control the Dr. Appointments or your recovery. They will help you find amazing Dr.s then it's up to you to be proactive in your recovery and keeping your appointments. It's been over a year and a half since my injury and my amazing, patient, and hardworking Attorney Joe has been here with me every step of the way. Hundreds of 5 star reviews. 3 or 4 low ones. You do the math.otis jarrettotis jarrett ★★★★★ I just want to say my experience with this Law Firm has always been perfect they friendly and respond quick Josh was my paralegal and he does a great job they are people friendly and I will fight hard for you number one Law Firm Mullen and Mullen💪💪 Thanks for the loveEpphanie milesEpphanie miles ★★★★★ Josh was amazing!

I took advice from a friend who insisted that I contact another law firm who's name I was very familiar with, from constantly hearing there commercial on the radio. When I called the other law firm they set me up an appointment to come in an speak to someone. I went and was very impressed with how nice there office was, however I was not impressed with how much there fees where. Let's just say that I could see why the decor was so nice after I learned what they would charge me for representation. I politely declined and limped right out of there office. I then went home and started doing my own research online going from one firm to another, reading review after review and came across Mullen & Mullen. I called the office explained my situation just as I had done with the other law firm and the first thing that the lady asked me from Mullen & Mullen was would I like to come in? or Would I like for someone to come out to my home to talk with me? They sent someone out, he answered all of my questoins. He was very thorough and professional so I was only a little impressed at this time, until he explained to me what there fee would be. And that's when I became even more impressed. I was told that a Mr. Josh Banks would be contacting me and would be handling my case. Mr Banks always kept me informed with what was going on and would check to see if I was satisfied with the services that I was receiving. He also got me the maximum amount that I could receive without charging me an arm and a leg, the process didn't take long and I didn't have to go into some fancy smancy office. Over all my experience with Mullen & Mullen has been great! Keep up the good work Mullen & Mullen!Debbie WilsonDebbie Wilson ★★★★★ Truly great firm!

Mullen & Mullen took care of us from the very beginning making everything extremely easy to get the help we needed. It was our first time having to go through something like this and Joseph took care of us the whole way. We also had a recent bankruptcy due to loss of job, and Joseph was able to work with the trustee to get us even more than the court's exception would allow in our particular circumstances.My husband also wants to shout out to "Mike", the original representative we met with after our accident, he was extremely knowledgeable and made everything feel right when signing on with Mullen & Mullen, and gave us the confidence we had nothing to worry about.We were referred by my brother Carlos L. who went to school with Mr. Mullen's son and are glad we took his advice!Stacey LawrenceStacey Lawrence ★★★★★ I cannot say enough about Mullen & Mullen...

You will rest a lot easier knowing they have you back .Allie FarooqAllie Farooq ★★★★★ We were hit by a drunk driver in Mesquite Texas, and immediately went to google search to find an attorney at the scene. We were very apprehensive because we had never been in this type of situation, and never had hired an attorney for a car wreck. We solely chose Mullen and Mullen based on their 5 star review. We are so glad we made this decision! We were both hurt bad and had to see doctors and go through physical therapy. Joseph Morrison handled our case and was so extremely caring and understood our pain, he took his time with our case. Every time I called, he answered, and spent so much time on the phone answering each question. He made sure we got all the treatment necessary before closing our case. We were extremely pleased with the end and will always call if we ever need him. My husband told me it's so easy and they are so nice it makes me nervous. We learned it really was just easy! They really did have our best interest at heart. Our neighbor had a similar wreck and we told them to call and they didn't. They lost so much and the wife still has pain to this day. She always says to me we should have called.Brittany PuckettBrittany Puckett ★★★★★ I want to thank Joseph with Mullen & Mullen for being the best attorney anyone could have asked for. He worked very hard in getting the medical help I needed after my auto accident. He made me feel like I was his only client.

Shane and Mullen & Mullen did a great job for me and I couldn't be more pleased.Razieh ShoorabRazieh Shoorab ★★★★★ As a future chiropractor who also works for a successful chiropractic office, I deal with many personal injury cases as well as different lawyers. Hands down Mullen & Mullen has been the best. They really do take their business to a personal level. After a screening call from one of his assistance, it was the next day that Shane Mullen called me. I will never forget our first conversation and one thing in particular that he said to me. I said, “This is the first time I am talking with you but I trust you so much” and he replied: “I Fully Trust Myself Too.” That was what I wanted to hear. I wanted to make sure that my lawyer is confident and my case is in good hands and with that settlement he proved his confidence and competence. As an experienced client I suggest that if you ever involve in an accident and need an attorney, do yourself a favor and call Shane Mullen. He will represent you with a passion for justice. Thank you Shane, you are amazing!Razieh ShoorabRazieh Shoorab ★★★★★ There is no way I can express my gratitude towards Mullen & Mullen law firm.

A Letter From Our Managing Partner

Shane V. Mullen, Managing Partner, Mullen & Mullen Law FirmMullen & Mullen has skillfully and successfully represented hundreds of injured and/or deceased motorcycle victim clients.

We know all too well that motorcyclists rarely get the benefit of the doubt when involved in a collision. That’s because we’ve all seen the occasional motorcycle operator speeding by in a blur or weaving in and out of traffic with reckless abandon. This creates the unfair stereotype that such practices are normal when, in fact, most motorcyclists are extremely responsible and do everything they can to properly monitor their surroundings given the increased risk of serious injury or death they face.

Awarded Texas Top 10 Personal Injury Settlements 2020 by Top VerdictAt Mullen & Mullen, we always take the time to hear the motorcyclist’s side of the story and we give them the benefit of the doubt they deserve. I recall a recent case where our client was seriously injured when a motorist failed to yield the right of way turning left and collided with his motorcycle. He was violently knocked off his bike and slid through the intersection. He’s, frankly, lucky to be alive.

Common Texas Motorcycle Accident FAQs & AnswersWe received the Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report associated with the incident. We were shocked to learn that – due to conflicting statements – the investigating officer assigned fault to both our client and the operator of the small SUV that collided with him. The investigating officer indicated there were no witnesses to the accident. We believed our client, however, and utilized our in-house investigators to locate two independent witnesses. The witnesses confirmed the motorist did not have a green arrow and had, in fact, failed to yield the right of way.

Top 10 Texas MVA Settlements in 2021We didn’t get the police report back, throw up our arms, and give up. We gave our client the benefit of the doubt and developed the evidence necessary to show the other motorist had not been truthful in her statements to the investigating officer – preventing an absolute injustice.

Three Best Rated: Best Business of 2023We got to know and like this client. Even though he didn’t have health insurance, we helped him get the high-quality medical attention he needed and deserved. His medical providers delayed billing him so he could focus on recovering from his serious injuries. We were eventually able to recover the full insurance policy limits from the at-fault motorist’s insurance company.

Medical Diagnostics & Treatment with Deferred Billing

What Types of Car Accident Injuries Get Misdiagnosed? When it comes to medical diagnostics and treatment, Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has you covered with state-of-the-art resources and a vast network of trusted doctors, chiropractors, and surgeons throughout Dallas and across Texas. Our recommended providers specialize in caring for individuals who have suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents of all kinds. What sets them apart is their willingness to postpone billing until your case is resolved and their willingness to testify about your injuries if necessary.

It’s essential to recognize that not all healthcare providers have the expertise to effectively assess and identify the full extent of injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents. Professionals who do not regularly treat accident victims may unintentionally overlook significant injuries simply because they lack specialized knowledge in this area. Fortunately, we know medical care providers who routinely treat accident victims and have the experience and expertise to comprehensively evaluate accident-related injuries. These providers know precisely what signs to look for and are dedicated to ensuring that no injury goes unnoticed or untreated. They also know how to properly document injuries and medical causation in the context of a personal injury case.

Insurance Negotiations

The insurance adjuster is not your friend. They do not exist to help you recover compensation or to pay you a fair amount of money for your injuries. Their sole purpose is to make money for their company, shareholders, and executives. They strive to delay, reduce, or outright deny your motorcycle accident claim.

Our founder, Attorney Regis Mullen, was once a litigation supervisor for Allstate, and we have former insurance adjusters who now work for us. Our experienced legal team has inside knowledge of all the tactics insurers use to deny and reduce settlements. This allows our Dallas lawyers to provide the best legal strategies available for maximizing motorcycle accident settlements.

Common Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to injuries due to the lack of protective barriers and the relative exposure to the environment. When involved in accidents, motorcyclists can sustain various types of injuries, ranging from minor to severe.

Here are some typical injuries motorcyclists may experience:

Road Rash

Road rash refers to abrasions and skin injuries that occur when a motorcyclist’s body slides across the pavement. It can range from mild scrapes to deep wounds. Road rash can be painful and may result in infections if not properly treated.

Fractures and Bone Injuries

Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to fractures and broken bones due to the direct impact or the forceful contact with the ground or other vehicles. Common fractures include broken limbs (arms, legs), collarbones, ribs, and facial bones. Severe fractures may require surgery, and the recovery process can be lengthy.

Head Injuries

Head injuries are a significant concern for motorcyclists, even if they are wearing helmets. These injuries can range from concussions to more severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). TBIs can have long-term consequences, affecting cognitive abilities, memory, coordination, and overall brain function.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can result in spinal cord injuries, which can cause partial or complete paralysis. Damage to the spinal cord may lead to loss of sensation, motor control, and bodily functions below the site of injury. Spinal cord injuries often require lifelong medical care, rehabilitation, and adaptive equipment.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries include damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Whiplash, sprains, strains, and torn ligaments are common in motorcycle accidents. These injuries can cause pain, swelling, limited mobility, and may require physical therapy or extensive pain management.

Internal Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can cause internal injuries, such as internal bleeding, organ damage, or damage to the lungs, liver, or kidneys. Internal injuries may not be immediately apparent and require swift medical attention to prevent further complications.

Emotional and Psychological Trauma

In addition to physical injuries, motorcyclists involved in accidents often experience emotional and psychological trauma. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions can develop following an accident. Psychological support and counseling may be necessary for healing and recovery.

The potential long-term consequences of motorcycle accident injuries can be extensive. They may include chronic pain, permanent disability, loss of income and earning capacity, diminished quality of life, and the need for ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and assistive devices. It is crucial for injured motorcyclists to seek comprehensive medical care and consult with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to pursue appropriate compensation for their injuries and associated long-term consequences.


Texas Motorcycle Accident Law FAQ

Do motorcycle accident claims resemble car accident claims?

Yes, they are very similar. The majority of insurance coverage and available damages remain consistent. The liability carrier may be more likely to provider representing contend that you also share the blame for the collision. They may allege excessive speed or absence of a helmet as contributing factors. Hence, establishing strong liability on the part of the at-fault party becomes exceedingly crucial. This aspect alone underscores the necessity of engaging a proficient personal injury attorney.

Are witnesses important to your claim?

Absolutely. This is especially crucial when the insurance company tries to deny liability or suggests that you bear more than 50% of the fault for the accident. It’s essential to identify witnesses and obtain all necessary contact information from them.

To ensure we gather all necessary evidence, our accident investigators will actively search for witnesses to the motorcycle wreck, even if they were not included in the police report. Our investigators have extensive experience thoroughly canvassing accident locations to uncover potential witnesses.

On the other hand, it’s important to note that the insurance company will not simply assume that you were injured. They will demand proof of your injuries. Therefore, it is imperative that you promptly seek medical care as soon as you experience any symptoms related to the motorcycle wreck, no matter how minor they may seem.

Remember: If you delay seeking medical treatment for your injuries after an accident, the insurance company is likely to argue or suggest that your claim involves a “gap in treatment,” indicating a period during which you received no medical care. They often use this gap in treatment to insinuate that your injuries are not genuine.

Who’s at fault in these common types of motorcycle collisions?

Falling down while heading into a curve

The responsibility for this type of accident could lie with you, or it could be attributed to the government entity responsible for maintaining the road. If the road was adequately maintained, the blame will fall on you. If there was a special defect on the road, however, ta government entity or contractor could be held accountable.

A car turns in front of you

This is the most prevalent type of motorcycle accident. Motorists sometimes fail to register the presence of a motorcycle in their mind, likely due to their familiarity with cars, which makes them inattentive to your smaller vehicle. Fault should lie with the driver, although winning your claim is not automatically guaranteed.

Getting hurt while lane-splitting

Lane-splitting is neither explicitly permitted nor outlawed by Texas law. However, many jurors could determine negligence should be apportioned between both parties.

Not wearing a helmet

In this scenario, your fault is likely to increase. Texas follows a “comparative negligence” approach, which means you can recover compensation if you are 50% or less responsible for your injuries. However, if you were not wearing a helmet and it could have reduced or prevented your injuries, your ability to recover a significant amount of compensation could certainly be impacted.

Can I still recover damages for my injuries if the police can’t figure out who was responsible for my motorcycle wreck?

Yes, you can. A jury could deem your account of the accident is more credible, and additional witnesses who are currently unknown might later be discovered. Moreover, an accident reconstructionist could establish liability on the at-fault party by utilizing various calculations, measurements, or data downloaded from the involved vehicles.

Our accident investigators have received specialized training in taking all steps necessary to avoid “swearing match” cases. They swiftly interview witnesses you are aware of and thoroughly canvass nearby businesses or residences for additional witnesses. If the circumstances of your injury claim warrant it, our Dallas motorcycle accident attorneys will engage an expert accident reconstructionist at no up-front cost to you.

Which agencies and/or organizations might hold records related to my collision or the at-fault driver?

Several agencies or organizations could possess relevant documents, depending on the specific details of your motorcycle collision. These include:

  1. Texas Department of Public Safety;
  2. United States Department of Transportation;
  3. Federal Highway Administration;
  4. Texas Department of Transportation; and
  5. Texas Transportation Commission.

At Mullen & Mullen Law Firm, we routinely submit records requests to these government entities, among many others. If you decide to retain our services, we will promptly initiate requests for all available documents pertaining to the motorcycle accident you were involved in. Additionally, we will conduct searches for public records associated with the at-fault driver(s).

Filing Liability & First-Party Injury Claims

What is a liability claim?

You file a liability insurance claim with the carrier for the at-fault party, i.e. the operator of the motor vehicle that hit you.

If the driver of the automobile that hit you did not have a driver’s license you may be able to file a claim against them for negligently entrusting said vehicle to an unlicensed or incompetent driver. In addition, if the at-fault party was in the course and scope of his or her employment you can file a liability claim against that person’s employer under the recognized doctrine of Respondeat Superior.

What First-Party claims are involved in motorcycle accident injuries?

First-party insurance claims refer to claims filed directly with your own insurance company or the insurance company of the vehicle owner. These claims may include:

PIP (“Personal Injury Protection”) Claims

This type of insurance provides “no-fault” coverage for reimbursing medical expenses and lost wages. You are entitled $2,500.00 in PIP coverage if the first-party insurance carrier cannot produce a signed rejection of this coverage.

MedPay Claims

This coverage is similar to PIP coverage, but the insurance carrier is entitled to subrogate to any third-party recovery you obtain i.e. ask for MedPay funds to be reimbursed.

UIM Claims (underinsured motorist claims)

To recover UIM damages, you must first obtain a policy-limits offer (or sometimes a near policy limits offer) from the insurance carrier of the at-fault party. You are entitled to this coverage in the amount of $30,000.00 unless the first-party carrier can produce a signed rejection of said coverage. (Remember: You need permission from your insurance company to accept a policy limits settlement offer from the liability carrier; failing to do so could result in denial of coverage under your own policy.)

UM Claims (underinsured motorist claims)

UM Claims (uninsured motorist claims)
A UM claim, also known as an uninsured motorist claim, comes into play if the person who hit you did not have the required insurance mandated by law. (Note: In the case of a “hit-and-run” situation, it is crucial that the at-fault party made actual physical contact with your motorcycle or person if the at-fault vehicle is unknown or unidentified; otherwise, coverage is likely to be denied. In the context of a liability claim, however, no physical contact is necessary. For example, if a driver veered into your lane and you had to lay your bike down to avoid a collision, you can still pursue damages against the negligent driver.)

What are the minimum liability limits in a Texas motorcycle accident case?

In Texas, motorists must carry at least $30,000 per person / $60,000 per accident bodily injury liability limits. It is not uncommon, however, for the at-fault vehicle to possess significantly higher coverage limits of $250,000 per person / $500,000 per accident or higher.

For instance, if both you and a passenger sustain injuries in the same motorcycle collision and the at-fault driver’s policy limits are $30,000 per person / $60,000 per accident, the insurance policy would only provide a maximum of $30,000 to each individual and a total payout of $60,000 for the liability carrier. This limit applies even if, for example, one of you suffered multiple bone fractures in the accident.

Identifying all available sources of insurance coverage is of utmost importance. To safeguard your legal rights, Mullen & Mullen will promptly file all potential claims (since some first-party policies now have deadlines to notify the carrier) and pursue any additional claims that may be accessible at the onset of your case. Moreover, our firm conducts asset searches on at-fault drivers who possess low liability limits to confirm they do not have assets that could be pursued in addition to the available insurance funds. First-party insurance carriers do their own asset searches before granting permission to accept a liability policy limits offer.


Getting Your Motorcycle Repaired or Replaced in a Timely Manner

Should You Use The Body Shop Recommended By The Insurance Company?

Never. The liability insurance carrier is recommending their body shop for a simple reason: they generally charge the insurance company less for repairs in exchange for a large volume of business. They also do not typically utilize the best available parts or most qualified mechanics.

Instead, exercise your right to choose the repair facility for your motorcycle. Choose either the dealership where you purchased the motorcycle or a qualified service facility you are comfortable with. Take control of the situation by deciding who repairs your bike.

Do you get a rental car?

Yes, but usually only if your motorcycle can be repaired. If your motorcycle has been totaled, then you will likely not be entitled to a rental vehicle from the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. However, you could have rental coverage on your own policy that would be applicable or entitled to a rental until your motorcycle has been deemed a “total loss” by the liability carrier.

Can Mullen & Mullen assist you in obtaining a rental vehicle?

Yes. Mullen & Mullen is happy to assist clients in obtaining a rental car while the liability carrier for the at-faulty party is determining whether your motorcycle is a “total loss” if any issues arise.

Can you claim your motorcycle has diminished in value because of the accident?

Absolutely, but this usually requires obtaining an expert to establish the amount of diminished value. We routinely advance money to clients to help establish diminished value when warranted.

What if your motorcycle has been totaled?

If your motorcycle is deemed a “total loss” by the at-fault party’s insurance carrier, or your own insurer, you are entitled to recover the fair market value of your vehicle or damages equal to what similar motorcycles are being sold for on the open market. This is not measured by KBB or NADA.


Establishing Non-Economic Damages

Can you recover non-economic damages, like pain and suffering?

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may also be entitled to the following non-economic damages:

  1. Past and future pain and suffering;
  2. Past and future mental anguish;
  3. Past and future physical impairment; and
  4. Other non-economic damages.

The damages listed above are not easily quantifiable. Unlike the calculation of medical bill damages, which is straightforward, it is impossible for any lawyer to definitively state the precise amount a jury would grant for the non-economic damages due to the potential variation caused by any number of factors.

In evaluating cases, Mullen & Mullen actively monitors recent verdicts and gives consideration to the importance of venue i.e. where the lawsuit could be filed. Our law firm possesses a 40+ year track record, enabling us to assess cases by considering previous similar instances with comparable injuries. Our attorneys are dedicated to passionately advocating for non-economic damages and will collaborate with you to establish the central theme of your injury claim.

We often prepare and utilize “day in the life videos.” These videos track a client throughout his or her day, demonstrating how the accident has impacted every aspect of life. Additionally, these videos let the insurance adjuster better understand your claimed injuries and limitations as well as evaluate how you would present to a jury.


Proving-Up Economic Damages

Can you recover damages for lost wages?

Yes. It is imperative, however, that these damages be “proved-up” or established by a preponderance of the evidence. Mullen & Mullen Law Firm can provide you with documents to give to your employer to assist you in establishing your lost wages.

Can you recover damages for future lost wages?

Certainly. Such compensation is commonly known as loss of earning capacity. Mullen & Mullen Law Firm frequently retains economists, vocational rehabilitation consultants, or a combination of both, to assist clients in substantiating past lost earnings or projecting future loss of earning capacity.

Are you potentially entitled to any other economic damages?

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you might also be entitled to these additional economic damages:

  1. Past medical expenses (“Reasonable and Necessary”);
  2. Future medical expenses (“Reasonable and Necessary”);
  3. Motorcycle repair cost;
  4. Replacement motorcycle cost; and
  5. Diminished value to your motorcycle.

Mullen & Mullen’s attorneys utilize certified life care planners on traumatic injury cases when necessary. We front this expense for you to help establish the necessity of life-long accommodations resulting from the injuries you sustained.

Punitive & Exemplary Damages

Exemplary damages, better known as punitive damages, are difficult to obtain but are meant to punish at-fault parties. Punitive damages require a finding of gross negligence or recklessness.

Some situations where punitive damages could be argued and/or awarded include:

  • If the Defendant was drinking and driving and/or intoxicated;
  • If the Defendant hadn’t slept for an extended period of time;
  • If the Defendant was on his cell phone and excessively speeding;
  • If the Defendant was racing another vehicle; or
  • Any other situation in which the Defendant was reckless or grossly negligent.


Negotiating a Settlement for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries

How much is your claim worth?

Be wary of injury attorneys who immediately try to guarantee you results or tell you what your case is “worth.” Case value is dictated by several factors, including arguments raised by the insurance adjuster.
Mullen & Mullen Law Firm offers clients a contingent contract with no attorney fees or expenses owed unless we obtain you a recovery. We are on your team and our primary goal is the same: Obtain the highest possible settlement available.

What factors impact claim value?

Many factors can influence the value of a personal injury claim, including:

  • Arguments raised by the insurance adjuster/defense attorney;
  • Any gaps in your medical treatment that cannot be explained;
  • Comparative negligence;
  • Subjective injuries (soft-tissue and sprain/strain) vs. Objective injuries (broken or fractured bones, for example);
  • Amount of medical bills incurred;
  • The amount of future expected medical bills;
  • Liability factors (at-fault motorist was on the phone at the time of the motorcycle wreck, for example);
  • Emotional aspects of your story (if the collision caused you to lose your house, for example); and
  • Venue (where a lawsuit could be filed)

Will the insurance company argue that you were also negligent?

Yes, they could. Unfortunately, insurance companies are aware that some people often hold biases against bikers and unfairly assume they all engage in speeding. To establish comparative negligence, the insurance company will likely make arguments suggesting that you, in some way or another, were also negligent. They may claim that you were speeding, inattentive, or should have exercised more caution when proceeding through an intersection.
If it is determined that you were indeed negligent in the motorcycle accident, the total damages awarded by the jury would be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you. For instance, if a jury awards you $250,000 in damages but determines that you were 40% at fault, the final verdict would be adjusted to $150,000.

Can you recover damages if you are 60% responsible for the motorcycle collision?

No. You can only recover damages if it is argued, or a jury determines, that you were not more than 50% at fault.

Will the insurance company dispute the amount of my medical bills?

What is Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Insurance & Should I Have It?Yes. Insurance companies employ so-called “independent” doctors (who primarily or only work with automobile insurance companies) to conduct “peer reviews”. These hired guns, along with the insurance adjuster, are likely to contend that some portion of your medical treatment was unnecessary or that your medical bills were unreasonable.

Can you still recover damages if the accident exacerbated a pre-existing injury?

Yes. In Texas, the “Eggshell Plaintiff” doctrine is recognized. In essence, it means that you must accept the plaintiff as they are at the time of the wreck. This means that if a person is more susceptible to injury due to a pre-existing injury or condition, you are still liable for any additional damages that may arise. For instance, you may have had degenerative disc disease that was previously asymptomatic but became painful after the accident. Another example could be a prior injury that you had already recovered from but resurfaced after the accident.

Mullen & Mullen’s lawyers are well-versed in the “Eggshell Plaintiff” doctrine and frequently request prior medical records to provide evidence of the aggravation of injuries caused by a motorcycle accident. Our team of injury lawyers often aids clients in preparing witness fact affidavits from friends and family members detailing how the collision subsequently impacted your life.

Should You Settle or File a Lawsuit?

Whether or not you should accept the insurance company’s final offer is dependent on several factors, including the cost of additional attorney fees and case expenses associated with the litigation.
Mullen & Mullen Law Firm will advise you the same way we would a good friend or family member. Our Dallas personal injury attorneys always recommend the best course of action for our clients. The best choice is ultimately the one that will put the highest amount of money in your pocket when factoring risk vs. reward. The final decision, however, is always completely yours to make.

What generally happens if a lawsuit is filed?

When a lawsuit is filed, several things typically occur:

  1. Legal fees experience a significant increase.
  2. Case expenses also undergo a significant increase.
  3. The process usually spans 9-12 months if the case settles before trial but could last years if a trial becomes necessary.
  4. You are generally required to answer written discovery questions, participate in a deposition, and attend a court-ordered mediation.


Bias Against Motorcycle Drivers & Comparative Negligence

Are insurance adjusters or jurors biased against motorcycle drivers?

Absolutely. Some insurance adjusters and jurors may have a natural tendency to associate all bikers with those they have seen flying down the highway. It is important, therefore, to make sure evidence is developed demonstrating you were following the rules of the road and operating your motorcycle in a safe and reasonable manner.

Does it matter if you were wearing a helmet or not?

Yes. Insurance adjusters will argue and/or a jury could determine that you were comparatively negligent for not wearing a helmet. The insurance company will undoubtedly suggest your injuries were made worse because you didn’t follow the law and wear a helmet.
