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. 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.

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. Joe walked me through all the steps, helped coordinate my appointments with the right doctors, and definitely went above and beyond expectations. 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. I didn't know which law firm to call. Someone I know told me to use Mullen Law. I can say it has been the best choice. They came to my home in the beginning.

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!

I recommend this law firm to anybody that would need an attorney!Talia LozanoTalia Lozano ★★★★★ My husband and I worked with Joseph at Mullen & Mullen, he was extremely sincere and personable, he did everything he said he would and always followed up when promised. 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...

It is seriously a team effort with the Mullen and Mullen law firm. I hope No one has to go through a situation like mine but if you do I strongly recommend going to Mullen and 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. He kept me informed on what was happening during my case and truly cared about my health care needs. His hard work and legal knowledge helped me in getting the insurance limits for pain and suffering allowed. It was more than I expected. Thank you for everything you did for me. I highly recommend Joseph Morrison with Mullen & Mullen Law Firm.Kimberly Greer NicholsKimberly Greer Nichols ★★★★★ I hired Shane Mullen as my personal injury lawyer for a slip and fall case. I hired them because of the positive reviews they had as well as the amount of experience. I was not disappointed. 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. Working with them has been by far the best legal experience I have ever had. I was not a million dollar client but was treated like one.

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 are acutely aware of the unfortunate bias against motorcyclists in collision situations, often stemming from the occasional sight of riders speeding past or maneuvering recklessly in traffic. This unjustly perpetuates the stereotype that such behaviors are the norm, when, in reality, the majority of motorcyclists exhibit exceptional responsibility and take vigilant measures to ensure their safety, given the elevated risks of severe harm or even fatality.

Common Texas Motorcycle Accident FAQs & AnswersAt Mullen & Mullen, we consistently prioritize listening to the motorcyclist’s perspective, offering them the well-deserved benefit of doubt. I can vividly recall a recent case wherein our client suffered severe injuries due to a left-turning motorist’s failure to yield the right of way, resulting in a catastrophic collision. He was forcefully ejected from his motorcycle and skidded through the intersection, narrowly escaping a fatal outcome.

Top 10 Texas MVA Settlements in 2021Following the incident, we obtained the Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report, which astounded us with its attribution of fault to both our client and the driver of the compact SUV involved in the crash, primarily due to conflicting statements. The report indicated a lack of witnesses to the accident. However, we placed our trust in our client’s account and deployed our in-house investigators, who successfully located two independent witnesses. These witnesses substantiated our client’s claim, confirming that the motorist had indeed failed to yield the right of way, and that there was no green arrow present.

Three Best Rated: Best Business of 2023Rather than yielding to the initial challenge posed by the police report, we persisted in our unwavering support for our client. We gave him the benefit of doubt and diligently built a compelling case, exposing the inaccuracies in the other motorist’s statements to the investigating officer, thus averting an egregious miscarriage of justice.

Throughout this ordeal, we developed a strong rapport with our client, who, regrettably, lacked health insurance. Nevertheless, we went above and beyond to ensure he received the top-tier medical care he urgently required and rightfully deserved. His medical providers displayed exceptional compassion by deferring his bills, allowing him to concentrate on his recovery from the grave injuries sustained. Eventually, we secured the full insurance policy limits from the liable motorist’s insurance company, bringing much-needed justice to our client.

Typical Injuries from Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcyclists face a higher risk of injury in accidents due to their exposure and the lack of protective barriers. The injuries they might incur can vary widely in severity.

Below are common injuries that motorcyclists might suffer:

Road Rash

This injury is caused by sliding across the pavement, leading to skin abrasions that can range from mild to severe. Without proper care, road rash can be excruciating and may lead to infections.

Bone Fractures

The impact of motorcycle crashes often results in broken bones or fractures, including injuries to arms, legs, collarbones, ribs, and facial bones. These injuries can be severe, sometimes requiring surgery and a long recovery period.

Head Injuries

Despite helmet use, motorcyclists can still suffer head injuries, from mild concussions to serious traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which may affect cognitive functions, memory, and overall brain health.

Spinal Cord Injuries

These injuries can be devastating, potentially causing partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation, and loss of motor function below the injury site. Spinal cord damage often necessitates lifelong care and rehabilitation.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons, such as whiplash, sprains, strains, and tears, are common. They can lead to pain, swelling, and reduced mobility, requiring physical therapy or significant pain management.

Internal Injuries

Crashes can lead to serious internal damage, including bleeding, organ damage, and injuries to the lungs, liver, or kidneys. These injuries demand immediate medical attention to avoid severe complications.

Emotional and Psychological Impact

Beyond physical injuries, accidents can cause significant emotional and psychological distress, such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, necessitating psychological support for recovery.

Motorcycle accident injuries can lead to chronic pain, permanent disability, financial strain due to lost income and medical expenses, reduced quality of life, and the need for ongoing medical care. It’s crucial for victims to receive comprehensive medical attention and consult with a qualified motorcycle accident attorney to seek compensation for their injuries and the long-term effects they may face.

Texas Motorcycle Accident Law FAQ

Are motorcycle accident claims similar to car accident claims?

Yes, they share many similarities. Most aspects of insurance coverage and available damages remain consistent. However, when it comes to liability, the insurer representing the other party may be more inclined to argue that you also share blame for the accident. They might point to factors like excessive speed or the absence of a helmet as contributing factors. Consequently, establishing strong liability on the part of the at-fault party becomes crucial. This underscores the importance of retaining an experienced personal injury attorney.

Is the presence of witnesses crucial to your claim?

Absolutely. This is particularly critical when the insurance company attempts to dispute liability or suggests that you bear more than 50% of the fault for the accident. Identifying witnesses and collecting their contact information is essential.

To ensure we gather all necessary evidence, our accident investigators actively search for witnesses to the motorcycle accident, even if they weren’t mentioned in the police report. Our investigators possess extensive experience thoroughly canvassing accident sites to uncover potential witnesses.

On the other hand, it’s crucial to note that the insurance company won’t automatically assume you were injured. They will demand evidence of your injuries. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek medical care promptly if you experience any symptoms related to the motorcycle accident, regardless of how minor they may appear.

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

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

Falling while entering a curve

Responsibility for this type of accident could rest with you, or it could be attributed to the government entity responsible for maintaining the road. If the road was properly maintained, the fault may fall on you. However, if there was a specific road defect, a government entity or contractor could be held accountable.

A car turns in front of you

This is the most frequent type of motorcycle accident. Drivers sometimes fail to notice motorcycles due to their familiarity with larger vehicles. Fault should generally lie with the driver, but winning your claim is not guaranteed.

Injury while lane-splitting

Lane-splitting is neither explicitly permitted nor prohibited by Texas law. However, many jurors might assign negligence to both parties.

Not wearing a helmet

In this scenario, your fault is likely to increase. Texas follows a “comparative negligence” approach, meaning 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 be impacted.

Can I still receive compensation for my injuries if the identity of the person responsible for my motorcycle accident is unknown?

Yes, it’s still possible to seek compensation for your injuries even if the police are unable to identify who caused your motorcycle accident. Your own testimony may be found more persuasive by a jury, and it’s possible that witnesses who have not yet come forward could provide further evidence. Additionally, an expert in accident reconstruction might be able to determine the responsible party using technical analysis, measurements, or data retrieved from the vehicles involved.

Our team of investigators at Mullen & Mullen Law Firm is trained to handle cases efficiently to prevent them from becoming disputes based solely on conflicting statements. They quickly interview known witnesses and search for others by checking with local businesses or residents. If needed, our firm in Dallas will bring in a specialist in accident reconstruction without requiring any initial payment from you.

Should you need records related to your accident or the person at fault, several organizations might hold important information. These organizations can 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, we frequently request records from these and other agencies. By choosing our services, we will expedite the process of obtaining all relevant documents concerning your motorcycle accident and any information on the at-fault drivers.

Understanding Liability and First-Party Injury Claims:

A liability claim is pursued against the insurance provider of the person who caused the accident, such as a motor vehicle driver who collided with you.

If the responsible driver lacked a valid license, you might have grounds to sue them for irresponsibly allowing an unlicensed or unfit person to use their vehicle. Furthermore, if the at-fault individual was working at the time of the accident, a liability claim could also be filed against their employer under the doctrine of Respondeat Superior.

First-Party Claims in Motorcycle Accident Cases:

First-party claims are those you file with your own insurer or the insurer of the vehicle owner. These claims can cover:

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims

PIP insurance offers “no-fault” coverage, which means it can cover medical bills and lost wages regardless of who caused the accident. If the insurer fails to show a signed waiver, you’re entitled to $2,500.00 in PIP coverage.

MedPay Coverage

MedPay coverage functions similarly to Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. However, unlike PIP, if you receive compensation from a third party for an accident, your insurer may seek reimbursement for MedPay benefits paid out.

Underinsured Motorist (UIM) Claims

To pursue a claim for underinsured motorist (UIM) benefits, you must first secure an offer from the at-fault driver’s insurance that is at or near their policy limits. You are entitled to up to $30,000 in coverage, provided that there is no signed waiver rejecting this coverage from your insurance provider. It’s important to note that you must get approval from your own insurer before accepting any settlement offers from the at-fault party’s insurer, as failure to do so might result in your insurer denying coverage.

Uninsured Motorist (UM) Claims

UM claims are filed when the driver responsible for an accident lacks the legally required insurance coverage. In incidents involving a hit-and-run, it’s essential that there was actual physical contact between the at-fault vehicle and your motorcycle or yourself for the claim to be valid. This is in contrast to liability claims where direct contact is not necessary for a claim to be pursued. For example, if you had to maneuver your motorcycle to avoid a collision with a driver who suddenly entered your lane, you may still seek damages from the negligent driver even without physical contact.

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

In Texas, the minimum liability insurance requirements for motorists involved in a motorcycle accident are set at $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident for bodily injury liability. It’s worth noting that it’s not uncommon for the responsible party’s insurance coverage to exceed these minimums, with some policies offering much higher limits such as $250,000 per person and $500,000 per accident.

For example, if you and a passenger are both injured in the same motorcycle collision, and the at-fault driver’s insurance policy is limited to $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident, the insurance would provide a maximum of $30,000 to each injured person, resulting in a total payout of $60,000 from the liability insurance carrier. This remains the case even if one of the individuals sustained multiple bone fractures in the accident.

Identifying all available sources of insurance coverage is crucial. To protect your legal rights, Mullen & Mullen promptly initiates claims for all potential sources of compensation, as some first-party insurance policies may have deadlines for reporting incidents. We also pursue any additional claims that may be accessible at the beginning of your case. Furthermore, our firm conducts asset searches on at-fault drivers who have low liability limits to verify whether they possess assets that could be pursued in addition to the available insurance funds. First-party insurance carriers often conduct their own asset searches before granting permission to accept a liability policy limits offer.

Ensuring Timely Motorcycle Repair or Replacement:

Should You Follow the Insurance Company’s Body Shop Recommendation?

No, you should not. The insurance carrier recommends their preferred body shop primarily because they offer cost savings to the insurer in exchange for a high volume of business. However, these shops may not always use the best quality parts or employ the most qualified mechanics.

Instead, exercise your right to choose the repair facility for your motorcycle. You can opt for either the dealership where you purchased the motorcycle or a qualified service facility you trust. Take control of the situation by selecting who handles your bike’s repairs.

Will you receive a rental vehicle?

Yes, but typically only if your motorcycle can be repaired. If your motorcycle is declared totaled, you might not be eligible for a rental vehicle from the at-fault party’s insurance. Nevertheless, you could have rental coverage under your own policy that applies until your motorcycle is officially labeled a “total loss” by the liability carrier.

Can Mullen & Mullen help you get a rental car?

Yes, Mullen & Mullen is happy to assist clients in obtaining a rental car while the at-fault party’s insurance carrier assesses whether your motorcycle qualifies as a “total loss” in case any issues arise.

Can you claim that your motorcycle has diminished in value due to the accident?

Certainly, but it often necessitates hiring an expert to determine the extent of the diminished value. We regularly provide financial assistance to clients to help establish diminished value when it is warranted.

What if your motorcycle is deemed a total loss?

If the at-fault party’s insurance carrier or your own insurer deems your motorcycle a “total loss,” you are entitled to receive the fair market value of your vehicle or compensation equivalent to the prices similar motorcycles are currently fetching in the open market. This valuation is not determined by KBB or NADA.

Securing Compensation for Non-Economic Harm

Are you eligible to seek compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and emotional distress, following a motorcycle accident? If you’ve been injured in such an incident, you may have a legitimate claim for various non-economic damages, which include:

  • Past and future pain and suffering.
  • Past and future mental anguish.
  • Past and future physical impairment.
  • Other non-economic damages.

It’s important to note that quantifying these damages is not a straightforward task. Unlike medical expenses, which can be calculated with precision, determining the exact amount a jury might award for non-economic damages can be influenced by numerous factors and thus remains uncertain.

At Mullen & Mullen, we employ an active approach when assessing cases. We closely monitor recent verdicts and take into account the choice of venue for filing the lawsuit. With over 40 years of experience, our law firm has the expertise to evaluate cases based on past similar incidents with comparable injuries. Our dedicated attorneys are committed to advocating for your non-economic damages and will work collaboratively with you to establish the core elements of your injury claim.

We often create and utilize “day in the life videos” as a part of our strategy. These videos follow a client throughout their daily routine, illustrating how the accident has affected every aspect of their life. Additionally, these videos help insurance adjusters gain a better understanding of your claimed injuries and limitations, allowing them to assess how you would present your case to a jury.

Click-to-Call-214-INJUREDEstablishing Economic Damages

Can you seek compensation for lost wages?

Yes, but it is crucial to substantiate these damages through a preponderance of evidence. Mullen & Mullen Law Firm can provide you with the necessary documents to present to your employer to verify your lost wages.

Can you recover damages for future lost wages?

Absolutely. Such compensation is commonly referred to as a loss of earning capacity. Mullen & Mullen Law Firm often engages economists, vocational rehabilitation consultants, or a combination of both to assist clients in confirming past lost earnings or predicting future loss of earning capacity.

Are there any other potential economic damages you might be entitled to?

If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, you may also be eligible for additional economic damages, including:

  • Past medical expenses (“Reasonable and Necessary”).
  • Future medical expenses (“Reasonable and Necessary”).
  • Motorcycle repair costs.
  • Replacement motorcycle costs.
  • Diminished value of your motorcycle.

In cases involving traumatic injuries, Mullen & Mullen’s attorneys may enlist certified life care planners to establish the necessity of lifelong accommodations resulting from your injuries, and we cover this expense for you.

Punitive & Exemplary Damages

Exemplary damages, commonly known as punitive damages, are challenging to obtain but are designed to penalize parties at fault. To secure punitive damages, it is necessary to establish gross negligence or recklessness.

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

  • If the Defendant was driving under the influence or intoxicated.
  • If the Defendant had not slept for an extended period.
  • If the Defendant was using a cell phone while excessively speeding.
  • If the Defendant was engaged in a race with another vehicle.
  • In any other scenario where the Defendant’s actions demonstrated recklessness or gross negligence.

Navigating Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Determining the Value of Your Claim

Exercise caution when dealing with injury attorneys who promise immediate results or claim to know the exact worth of your case. The value of your motorcycle accident claim hinges on various factors, some of which may be argued by the insurance adjuster. At Mullen & Mullen Law Firm, we offer our clients a contingent contract, ensuring that no attorney fees or expenses are due unless we secure a recovery for you. We are committed to achieving the highest possible settlement on your behalf.

Factors Influencing Claim Value

Numerous factors can impact the value of a personal injury claim, including:

  • Arguments presented by the insurance adjuster or defense attorney.
  • Unexplained gaps in your medical treatment.
  • Comparative negligence.
  • Differentiating between subjective injuries (such as soft-tissue or sprain/strain injuries) and objective injuries (like broken or fractured bones).
  • The amount of medical bills incurred.
  • Expected future medical expenses.
  • Liability factors, such as the at-fault motorist’s distracted driving.
  • Emotional aspects of your story, such as losing your home due to the collision.
  • The jurisdiction where a lawsuit could be filed.
  • Possible Allegations of Your Negligence

Insurance companies may attempt to argue that you were partially at fault for the motorcycle accident. They might claim that you were speeding, inattentive, or should have exercised more caution. If it is determined that you were negligent, any damages awarded by a jury would be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. For example, if a jury awards you $250,000 in damages but finds you 40% at fault, the final verdict would be adjusted to $150,000.

Recovery with Shared Responsibility

You can only recover damages if it is argued or a jury determines that you were not more than 50% at fault for the motorcycle collision.

Disputing Medical Bills

Insurance companies often contest the amount of your medical bills. They may hire “independent” doctors who primarily work with automobile insurance companies to conduct “peer reviews.” These professionals, in conjunction with the insurance adjuster, may claim that some of your medical treatment was unnecessary or that your medical bills were unreasonable.

Recovery for Exacerbated Pre-Existing Injuries

In Texas, the “Eggshell Plaintiff” doctrine is recognized, which means you are liable for any additional damages arising from the accident, even if the victim had a pre-existing injury or condition that made them more susceptible to harm. For instance, a previously asymptomatic degenerative disc disease may become painful after the accident. Mullen & Mullen’s attorneys are experienced in leveraging this doctrine and can help gather evidence, such as prior medical records and witness affidavits, to support your case.

Settlement or Lawsuit?

Deciding whether to accept the insurance company’s final offer or pursue a lawsuit depends on various factors, including the associated attorney fees and case expenses. Mullen & Mullen Law Firm provides advice akin to what we would offer a close friend or family member. We always aim to recommend the option that maximizes your financial outcome while considering risk versus reward. Ultimately, the decision rests entirely with you.

The Litigation Process

When a lawsuit is initiated, several key developments usually occur:

  • Legal fees and case expenses increase significantly.
  • The process typically spans 9-12 months if the case settles before trial but could extend to years if a trial becomes necessary.
  • You will likely be required to respond to written discovery questions, participate in a deposition, and attend court-ordered mediation.

Click-to-Call-214-INJURED

Prejudice Against Motorcycle Riders and Comparative Negligence

Do Insurance Adjusters and Jurors Exhibit Bias Towards Motorcyclists?

Certainly. Some insurance adjusters and jurors may exhibit a natural inclination to stereotype all motorcyclists based on the actions of a few reckless riders they have encountered. Therefore, it becomes crucial to establish evidence proving that you were adhering to traffic regulations and operating your motorcycle safely and responsibly.

Does Helmet Usage Impact Your Case?

Yes, it does. Insurance adjusters may contend, and a jury could potentially find, that you bear some comparative negligence if you were not wearing a helmet. The insurance company is likely to argue that your injuries were exacerbated because you failed to comply with helmet laws, potentially diminishing your claim.
