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. Burnett

I’m only 22 and this was the first case I’ve ever had, I got recommended Mullen and Mullen by a friend who has used them plenty of times and said nothing but good things about them. 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. Greg especially has been very helpful by keeping me updated and answering any questions I might have about the situation, he’s been an amazing help and I’m glad I was able to get him assigned to help me get what I deserve from my car accident. Very professional and fast responses, If you are ever injured in a car accident I 100% recommend this team to fight for you, ask for Greg!

Joe Morrison with Mullen and Mullen was fantastic representing me for an injury on someone's property. He kept me updated through the entire 2 year process. If I had any questions, Joe took the time to personally take my call and provide answers. Joe negotiated a settlement very quickly and ensured I received a fair settlement. I highly recommend Mullen and Mullen and would hire them again if I need help in the future. Best experience with any lawyer I have ever had!!

I was involved in a car accident in Dallas texas off mockingbird. I was T bone by someone who had ran a red light. Me being a young female, I felt lost and taken advantage of by the other parties insurance.I chose Mullen Mullen because they were the only law firm who physically wanted to meet me and hear my side. They helped me with all on the medical assistance that I needed . Although it was a lot of therapy, I was really happy with the doctors they sent me to. Josh was very welcoming and I honest in the process. Every time I felt so at ease after speaking with him. I am so happy I had him on my case. Very hands on. Highly recommend!!!

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.

What Your Attorney Says

“Mullen & Mullen attorneys are skilled at countering any suggestion of comparative negligence.”

In this age of distracted driving our firm has seen an unfortunate uptick in the number of pedestrians we represent. Many of these pedestrians are injured in parking lots and/or crosswalks due to inattentive drivers looking at their cell phones instead of focusing on the road and their surroundings.

We’ve all heard about the need to drive defensively. These days it’s even more critical to walk defensively. Pedestrians are completely exposed, and as a result, they often suffer severe injuries. You are not surrounded by tons of steel and don’t have access to safety features like seatbelts, crumple zones and airbags.

We recently represented a senior citizen who was injured while walking to her car at NorthPark Mall. She walked from the curb and was roughly 6 feet into a roundabout when she was struck by an inattentive motorist. Given how far she had made it into the roundabout, we were able to quickly strike down any suggestion of comparative negligence by the liability carrier.

Liability insurance carriers routinely attempt to assign some percentage of fault to the injured pedestrian by suggesting the pedestrian also failed to keep a proper lookout. Believe it or not, they can do so even in cases where the at-fault motorist clearly failed to yield the right of way as required by law. This allows carriers to minimize damages or even potentially deny claims altogether based on the percentage of fault assigned. Luckily, Mullen & Mullen attorneys are skilled at countering any suggestion of comparative negligence.

Our client broke her ankle when she was knocked down to the concrete. She was transported by ambulance to the hospital, and she underwent surgery just a few days later. Her medical bills were only $28,000.00 but we were able to settle her case for over $280,000.00 without having to file a lawsuit.

Our client – who was in her late 70s – was relieved to have such a great recovery without having to go through years of stressful litigation at higher attorney fees. Obtaining such a favorable outcome as quickly as possible allowed her to get back to focusing on enjoying her golden years. This was a wonderful result for a fantastic – and very deserving – client.

You receive the quality medical attention you need from local providers near where you live or work. These providers specialize in treating people hurt in accidents of all kinds and they know how to properly document injuries to meet the legal burden of proof in your personal injury case. These providers are also willing to delay billing collections until after your case is resolved so you can focus on recovering without additional stress. Physicians that don’t routinely treat accident victims as part of their practice usually turn away patients over fear of being involved in the legal process or fear of health insurance companies refusing to pay accident-related healthcare bills. Please call us at 214-747-5240 for a free consultation and some advice.

Even if you don’t have health insurance or can’t afford your deductible, Mullen & Mullen will secure you the quality healthcare and state-of-the art diagnostics you deserve with no upfront out of pocket costs.

You are the boss, and we will respond quickly to your requests for case updates and assistance. We guarantee that when you need to speak to your counsel, you will speak directly to your counsel, not to a paralegal or secretary, because that’s the way it should be.

About Pedestrian Accident Claims

Do pedestrians automatically have the right of way?

No. The insurance company for the negligent driver that hit you is likely to argue that you contributed to the incident in some form or fashion. They might attempt to “speed you up” while simultaneously “slowing the at-fault driver down.” The police report could state the at-fault driver was inattentive in a parking lot, but the insurance carrier could still argue you were too. They also love situations where they can say you didn’t look both ways or attempted to cross an area when it was unsafe to do so.

How are pedestrian injury claims unique compared to regular auto accidents?

The vast majority of insurance issues and damages available in a pedestrian accident injury claim are similar to those of a regular auto collision. Please visit our car accident injury claims page for detailed information that should answer most of your questions regarding your potential case. However, some things are unique to pedestrian accidents in Texas, and our attorneys have listed them below.

Who’s responsible in a pedestrian accident?

Some people think that pedestrians always have the right of way. If you’re driving and hit a pedestrian, you’re in big trouble, the thinking goes.
That’s not always the case though. As with any other personal injury case type, a pedestrian can be totally or partially at fault.

Both drivers and pedestrians must exercise “reasonable care.”

Pedestrians have a duty to exercise a reasonable degree of care. So, for example, it would be difficult for a pedestrian to say a motorist was at fault if he or she walked through an intersection because they were looking down at their cell phone while a driver had a green light.

Obviously, drivers also have a duty to exercise reasonable care. If a driver is distracted in any way, was speeding, didn’t yield at a crosswalk, or was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, for example, that would constitute a violation of that duty. When it comes to children, drivers have a higher duty of care because of the often-unpredictable behavior of children. If a driver knows, or should know, that small children play in an area, they have a duty to exercise greater caution while driving in that area.

If the police report puts you BOTH at-fault can you still obtain an injury settlement?

Let’s a motorist is texting while driving and hits a pedestrian that’s doing the same thing while walking through a “Don’t Walk” sign. Both parties are negligent and violated their respective duties of care.

What happens? Well, this is where things get complicated. The final outcome of the case will depend on the skill of your lawyer and the makeup of the jury.

Texas is a “modified comparative fault” state. This means that if you are found by a jury to be 51% responsible for your injuries or more, you cannot recover compensation. If you were the pedestrian above that was hit because of a distracted driver – but also walked through a “Don’t Walk” sign – the jury could determine you were 50% responsible for your injuries. In that scenario the total amount awarded to you would be reduced by 50%. If you were originally awarded $100,000.00 in damages, the jury award would be reduced to $50,000.00 based on your percentage of fault.

Personal injury lawyers offer free consultations to learn the facts of your case. There’s no risk for you to talk to visit with us to learn what the potential legal outcome of your case could be.

What if the Pedestrian Accident Happened at an Intersection?

If you began walking through an intersection when the crosswalk sign directed you to will you automatically win?

Nope. The insurance company could argue you that their insured had control of the intersection or that you failed to check for oncoming vehicles before entering the intersection, amongst other things.

If you began walking through an intersection when the crosswalk sign told you NOT to will you automatically lose?

Not necessarily. You can potentially contend you had control over the intersection prior to the accident. The at-fault driver can be found negligent if it is determined a reasonable and prudent driver would have avoided hitting you.

In the above scenario the insurance company would, of course, argue you were comparatively negligent.

What if the Pedestrian Accident Happened in a Parking Lot?

If you were hit by an automobile in a parking lot, you automatically win right?

No. The insurance carrier for the at-fault driver could argue that you were not paying attention to your surroundings and that a reasonable person would have seen a car or truck backing up.

Does it matter if the collision caused you to fall to the ground or not?

It can. If a collision didn’t knock you down to the ground the insurance company could argue that it would be impossible for a person to be injured in such an accident. In addition, impacts where the victim has been knocked to the ground often involve more significant injuries.

Obtaining Medical Treatment

If you don’t have health insurance or can’t afford your out of pocket medical expenses can you still receive care?

Yes. Our Dallas pedestrian accident attorneys work with a variety of medical providers who agree to delay requesting payment for the services they render until your injury claim has settled. This allows you to focus on recovering instead of worrying about how you are going to pay for your medical bills.

What type of medical providers do your Dallas pedestrian accident lawyers work with?

Our attorneys work with orthopedic surgeons, pain management doctors, neurologists, chiropractors, physical therapists, surgical facilities, anesthesiologists, imaging facilities, pharmacies, hospitals, and many other types of medical providers in Dallas, Plano, Frisco, Fort Worth, and all across North Texas.

What if surgery is needed after a pedestrian accident in Dallas?

Our Dallas injury lawyers have assisted countless injured victims who required a surgery to recover from injuries sustained in accidents. The availability of surgery, however, is dependent on adequate automobile insurance coverage being available.

Our attorneys will make sure all available insurance proceeds are at play. In fact, the majority of potential insurance claims will be established at the very onset of your case to make sure it progresses as smoothly as possible.
