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. 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... I've been working with Shane Mullen and from the beginning he has taken the time to answer all of my questions and explain the process to me in terms which I could understand.

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.

A Message From Our Senior Associate Attorney

Joseph Morrison, Senior Associate Attorney“It is important in dog bite cases to retain counsel familiar with all potential causes of action.”

My wife and I are the proud parents of two rescue dogs, Max and Tobey, who have become cherished members of our family. We adore them immensely, and they bring us immeasurable joy.

While most dogs are friendly and bring happiness into people’s lives, it’s unfortunate that some can pose serious threats. I’ve seen haunting photographs of clients who suffered injuries from dog attacks, an image that remains etched in my memory.

What Makes a Dog Owner in Texas Liable for Your Injuries?When it comes to dog attacks, dog owners can be held responsible for the injuries caused. If an owner is aware that their dog has previously bitten someone or has exhibited aggressive behavior, they can be held liable for any subsequent attacks. It’s crucial to understand that not all dogs are given a “free pass.” Certain breeds, such as Akitas and Pit Bulls, are considered inherently dangerous under the law, making their owners strictly liable for any injuries inflicted by their dogs.

Additionally, many cities and counties have their own animal control laws, often mandating dogs to be leashed. Violating these “leash laws” automatically deems the owner negligent, as a matter of law.

Furthermore, dog owners and handlers are obligated to exercise reasonable care, even with non-aggressive animals, to prevent them from causing harm to others. I vividly remember a case where we represented a five-year-old girl who suffered a traumatic incident. While delivering an item to a neighbor, a small dog, not of an inherently dangerous breed, escaped due to the homeowner’s mother’s negligence. The dog, in its excitement, accidentally scratched the child’s eyelid, necessitating a minor plastic surgery. For a child, this experience was undeniably traumatic.

In cases like these, it’s essential to have legal representation familiar with all potential legal avenues. In the mentioned case, the young girl received a settlement of over $110,000.00, which was placed into an annuity ensuring a minimum payout of $179,864.81 over a specific period. This compensation will support her future college education, and we sincerely wish her the best.

Deferred medical billing until the resolution of your Frisco dog bite case.

This approach enables you to concentrate on recovering from your injuries rather than dealing with a daunting pile of medical debt and persistent bill collectors.

Personalized representation leading to potentially higher settlement amounts.

This proactive approach ensures the proper development of your case, potentially resulting in a more favorable settlement.

Reduced expenses and increased funds in your pocket.

We have two in-house private investigators whose services are provided free of charge to our clients.

Additionally, if you mention discovering us through this website, we will reduce our fee to 29% of your final settlement if it settles pre-suit (compared to the industry-standard of 33.3%-35%).

This reduction in attorney fees allows you to retain a larger portion of your settlement money. Our ability to offer this reduced fee is attributed to the consistently high settlement values we achieve on behalf of our clients.

About Dog Bite Cases

Plano Dog Bite AttorneyHave you or your child fallen victim to a dog bite in Frisco? If so, you’re likely grappling with severe physical pain, enduring injuries that may take weeks or months to heal, possibly leaving lasting disfigurement.

Beyond the physical toll, there’s the emotional trauma. The fear of encountering an unrestrained dog during a nightly walk or the uneasy tension around even friendly dogs may linger. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not uncommon among dog bite victims, amplifying the psychological distress following an attack.

For child victims, a lasting fear of dogs can persist, and the mental anguish resulting from a vicious dog attack leading to permanent disfigurement is beyond imagination.

Adding to the burden is the financial fallout. Mounting medical bills become a source of stress, and uncertainty surrounds how to settle them while meeting other obligations. The dog owner’s insurance company may delay or deny payment, leaving you responsible for expenses that weren’t your fault.

In moments of hopelessness, it’s crucial to recognize that dog bites happen, often due to inadequate training, supervision, or restraint by owners.

Our Frisco lawyers aim to hold dog owners accountable for your injuries, striving to demonstrate:

  • The dog’s past history of attacking someone.
  • Aggressive tendencies displayed by the dog.
  • Inherently dangerous nature of the dog breed.
  • Deviation from a defined standard of care for the canine by the owner.
  • Violation of a “leash law” by the owner.

Dog owners should maintain liability insurance, typically covered by their homeowner’s insurance policy, ranging from $100,000 to $300,000. To navigate these complexities, enlist the support of the best Frisco dog bite lawyers. Contrary to common belief, you can afford top-notch legal representation, as injury lawyers operate on a contingent fee basis tied to the final settlement value—you pay only if your Frisco dog bite case settles.

Understanding Dog Bite Claims

Is the owner automatically responsible if a dog bites me?

Data Shows Texas Leads the Nation in Fatal Dog AttacksNot necessarily. Despite common beliefs, being bitten by a dog in Texas doesn’t automatically entitle you to compensation from the owner or their insurance company. Texas dog bite law typically requires proof that the dog has a history of aggression and that the owner was negligent in some way. There is an exception if you are bitten by an inherently dangerous breed, such as Pit Bulls or Dobermans.

How much compensation can I expect for my dog bite injuries?

The amount of compensation varies based on the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life. Your level of responsibility in the situation is also a factor. For instance, if you provoked the dog, Texas comparative negligence law may reduce your compensation based on your percentage of fault.

How do owners defend themselves in dog bite cases?

Owners, or their representatives, often claim they had no prior knowledge of the dog’s aggressive behavior or history of biting. Merely being bitten does not guarantee automatic compensation, highlighting the importance of having a skilled Frisco dog bite injury lawyer handle your case.

Are dog bite cases easy to win?

Not necessarily. You bear the burden of proof, and winning a case isn’t guaranteed. Liability alone may not ensure compensation, as insurance coverage factors, such as breed exclusions, can come into play.

Should I file a claim if it’s my friend or family member’s dog that bit me?

In most cases, you’re filing a claim against your friend’s homeowner’s insurance, not against them personally. A true friend or family member would want you to be fairly compensated for your damages. If their dog caused your injuries and they resist fair treatment, they may not be genuine friends.

While nobody plans for accidents or injuries, understanding the realities of Texas dog bite law helps you protect yourself. If you find yourself a victim of a dog attack, contact our Frisco dog bite lawyers today for a free consultation at (214) 529-3476.

Understanding Dog Owner Liability for Injuries in Texas

Texas adheres to a somewhat peculiar “one free bite” rule concerning liability for dog bites. It’s important to note, however, that this doesn’t grant dog owners immunity in every situation.

Let’s consider a scenario where you’ve been bitten by a dog. Is the owner accountable financially? Perhaps.

While we’d prefer to provide straightforward “yes” or “no” answers, the legal landscape is more nuanced. The specific details of your case will influence the outcome.

Exploring Texas Dog Bite Law

Texas Adheres to a “One Free Bite” Standard:

Typically, owners receive legal protection for their dog’s initial bite, unless liability can be established on other grounds. Essentially, if it’s the dog’s first bite, and there were no prior indications of aggressive behavior, the owner might not be financially responsible for your injuries.

Exceptions to this rule include:

Negligence (failure to exercise reasonable care in controlling the dog)
Violation of leash laws or other local ordinances
Reckless or outrageous behavior
Deviation from established standards of care for the dog
Breeds inherently considered dangerous

Defenses Against Liability:

Common defenses include the owner’s lack of knowledge about the dog’s past aggressive tendencies, or the assertion that you were a trespasser or acted negligently.

As the plaintiff, you bear the burden of proof, needing to show it’s “more likely than not” that the owner was negligent or that one of the exceptions mentioned applies.

Examining Negligence in Dog Bite Cases

Owners who allow their dogs off-leash without supervision, especially in areas covered by leash laws, are likely to be deemed negligent. This holds true if a “leash law” is in place, making the owner “negligent per se” – inherently negligent under the law.

However, negligence can take various forms. For instance, if a larger dog knocks down an elderly individual, breaking bones, the owner may be considered negligent for failing to keep the dog at a safe distance.

Unlike “strict liability” states, Texas doesn’t automatically hold owners responsible unless the dog belongs to an inherently dangerous breed.

If uncertain about dog bite responsibility, seek a free consultation with an injury lawyer for clarity on your rights. Contact our Frisco dog bite attorneys at (214) 529-3476 for assistance.

Factors Indicating Owner Awareness of a Vicious Dog

To succeed in a Frisco dog attack lawsuit, you must demonstrate that the owner knew or should have known their dog posed a threat but failed to take ordinary precautions.

Indications that an owner should have known about their dog’s aggressiveness include:

  • Frequent confinement or restraint of the dog
  • Posting warning signs about the dog
  • Breed characteristics known for aggression
  • Observable signs of aggressive behavior
  • Formal complaints or warnings about the dog

However, these factors alone do not prove liability; they serve as evidence. Establishing a clear pattern of aggressive behavior is crucial to proving the owner’s awareness.

Texas Takes Unfortunate Lead in Fatal Dog Attacks: Unveiling the Culprits and Protective Measures

Regrettably, Texas holds a prominent position in less-than-desirable statistics. The state consistently ranks among the most perilous in the nation, and in some years, claims the dubious title of the most hazardous in terms of severe dog bite injuries and fatalities.

Data compiled and disclosed by DogsBite.org sheds light on the alarming frequency of dog attacks resulting in significant harm and even death.

In 2015, Texas topped the nation with a distressing total of 5 fatalities. Moreover, from 2005 to 2013, the state maintained its lead with a staggering 34 deaths.

Current data indicates that Texas continues to be among the frontrunners in such incidents this year.

One heartbreaking account is that of Johana Villafane, who met a tragic fate while visiting her pit bulls during their quarantine at O’Connor Animal Hospital. The dogs had been placed in quarantine following an incident where they had bitten a man just 8 days prior.

The severity of their aggression was such that the animal hospital, unable to manage the dogs themselves, requested Villafane to walk them, leading to the devastating mauling that resulted in her untimely death.

Which Dog Breeds Are Considered More Prone to Aggression?

Not all dogs are inherently dangerous, yet some breeds may pose a higher risk. With proper training and attentive ownership, many dogs can be well-behaved. However, it’s essential to recognize that some dogs, when not appropriately trained, can exhibit aggressive behavior, potentially leading to bites and attacks on innocent individuals.

While it’s crucial not to generalize based on a dog’s appearance or behavior, certain breeds have gained notoriety for being associated with aggressive incidents. Meeting a dog with its owner is often advisable to establish trust and avoid perceived threats. Here are some breeds commonly recognized for their potential danger:

Pit Bulls:

Frequently making headlines for aggressive behavior, pit bulls encompass various breeds like the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and American Bulldog. Originally bred for bull and bear baiting, as well as dog fighting, they may display aggressive tendencies if not properly trained.

Rottweilers:

Known for their historical role in driving cattle for the Roman army, Rottweilers can have a strong temperament. Effective ownership requires a calm, assertive approach to help manage their emotions and prevent aggressive behavior.

German Shepherds:

Initially bred to assist shepherds in protecting flocks, German Shepherds have also served as loyal guard dogs. While they can be friendly with proper training, their behavior heavily depends on responsible ownership.

Doberman Pinschers:

Originally bred by a German tax collector for protection during door-to-door work, Doberman Pinschers have a history tied to their guardian role. Responsible ownership is crucial to ensuring they do not exhibit aggressive behavior.

Conclusion:

It’s essential to understand that nearly every dog, irrespective of breed, can make an excellent family pet with proper care. However, certain breeds, due to their genetic predispositions, may have a higher likelihood of aggressive behavior. In Texas, certain breeds, such as Pit Bulls, are considered inherently dangerous, and owners are expected to be aware of the potential risks. If you’ve experienced a dog bite, seeking advice from a qualified personal injury lawyer is recommended.

How to Handle a Dog Attack: Tips for Staying Safe

Although rare, dog attacks can occur unexpectedly. Are you prepared to handle one or stop it if you become a victim? Learn the essential steps to take in such a situation.

Texas leads the nation in fatal dog attacks, and while dog bites are common, a full-scale mauling is fortunately infrequent.

If you find yourself facing a dog attack, what should you do?

Predicting a dog’s intention to attack is challenging, as not all display overt signs such as growling, lunging, snarling, or baring teeth. Some dogs may exhibit more subtle behaviors, like momentarily freezing their entire body.

What should you do if a dog displays aggressive behavior?

Follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid direct eye contact, as dogs perceive it as a challenge.
  • Remain motionless and refrain from talking to the dog.
  • Slowly move away, creating distance and placing a barrier between you and the dog.
  • Calmly ask someone nearby for assistance, avoiding loud shouts that could startle the dog.
  • If you’re on the ground, curl into a ball, protect your neck with your hands, and avoid using pepper spray, as it may increase the likelihood of an attack.

What if a dog attacks and bites you?

Consider the following tactics:

  • Cover the dog’s head with a jacket or shirt to obstruct its vision, possibly prompting disengagement.
  • Use a jacket, shirt, or another object to redirect the dog’s biting away from yourself.
  • Avoid screaming, as it can escalate the dog’s aggression.
  • Refrain from hitting the dog with nearby objects, as this intensifies the dog’s adrenaline and desire to attack.

Successfully preventing or surviving a dog attack requires a composed demeanor in a high-pressure situation. While encountering an aggressive dog alone is an undesirable scenario, being aware of the appropriate actions can empower you to respond effectively if the need arises.
