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 injured in a motorcycle accident, and Shane Mullen took on my case with determination and empathy. His attention to detail and commitment to my case led to a favorable outcome. I'm grateful for his hard work and highly recommend Mullen & Mullen Law Firm.
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.

Mullen and Mullen are the best personal injury team in DFW. When you hire Mullen and Mullen, you have the best personal injury attorneys in DFW. You are getting the best support staff in the state of Texas.Knowing every case is unique. My case took 3 years to complete. My team was professional in the face of a lot of stalling tactics. Without a bat of an eye, the team turned up the heat on the defense for the best possible outcome for all parties.Without details, this group changed not only my life. Mullen and Mullen helped me change my outlook on life after the accident.The most important lessons I learned: 1) Do not try to navigate an personal injury case no matter the cause 2) Listen and follow the advice of your attorney. Get the best in Texas.Shane and Paul, thank you from me and my family.

Why Choose Mullen & Mullen to Handle Your Case?

According to TopVerdict.com, our Dallas attorneys consistently achieve some of the highest recoveries in the state of Texas. As a matter of fact, in the last three years we’ve made their “Texas Top 50 Personal Injury Settlements” list 43 times. For example, in 2021 one of our claims made the Top 10 list, eight made the Top 11-20 list, and ten made the Top 21-50 list. When you factor in our reduced 29% contingency fee, we are confident we will help you recover more. At Mullen & Mullen, we pride ourselves on routinely recovering full policy limits for our clients without the necessity of costly and time-consuming litigation.

We have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic technology through well-established relationships with medical doctors, surgeons, physical therapists, chiropractors, neurologists, counselors, and other healthcare providers in the entire DFW Metroplex. 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.

Shane, Joseph and Regis have almost 100 years of combined experience practicing personal injury law. That doesn’t even include the combined experience of the attorneys that serve as of-counsel to Mullen & Mullen at no additional cost to our clients. Our firm continues to evolve, but we never forget our Core Values. We do the right thing, handle cases the way we would want our own case handled, and we truly listen to clients. We have over 40 years of local knowledge, and that matters!

Some lawyers forget that they represent the client, but we never have. Our legal team will make YOU the priority. 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.

Most firms hire an investigator to help develop evidence on your case and charge you back for that service. Our firm, however, has 2 full-time accident investigators on staff and we offer their services to you for free. This is another way we will maximize your compensation.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Video footage is worth a lot more. Our in-house videographer allows us to capture the true impact the accident has on your life beyond mere words on a piece of paper.

When necessary, Mullen & Mullen Law Firm uses cutting edge technology like 3D imaging videos to fully demonstrate the extent of our clients’ injuries to the insurance companies. This also helps maximize the value of your claim.

Mullen & Mullen’s attorneys live and work right here in Dallas, and always have. We believe in paying our success forward by helping people in the North Texas community, and are dedicated to supporting these local charities.

Frequently Asked Questions about Legionnaires’ disease Lawsuits

How do I know if I have Legionnaires’ disease?

This condition has a number of symptoms. Initial ones include:

  • Headache;
  • Muscle aches;
  • High fever.

But these can get worse. Within 2-3 days of noticing these symptoms, you may also experience:

  • Coughing, which may include mucus and blood;
  • Shortness of breath;
  • Chest pain;
  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting;
  • Diarrhea;
  • Confusion;
  • Infections in wounds you already have;
  • Heart infections.

The disease can also lead to death.

If you think you have Legionnaires’ disease, schedule a visit with your doctor immediately.

What causes Legionnaires’ disease?

You cannot contract Legionnaires disease from another person. The bacteria Legionella pneumophila causes most cases, as it thrives in water systems humans make.

Most people get the disease by inhaling water droplets with the bacteria. Common places where you get the disease include:

  • Hot tubs;
  • Whirlpools;
  • Cooling towers in the air conditioning (AC) systems found in large buildings;
  • Decorative fountains;
  • Swimming pools;
  • Cooling misters;
  • Drinking water.

Am I at risk for Legionnaires’ disease?

This disease is extremely rare. Only about 20,000 people in the US get it each year. You might be at a higher risk for the disease if you:

  • Smoke;
  • Have a weakened immune system;
  • Have a chronic lung disease, emphysema, diabetes, kidney disease or cancer;
  • Are over 50.

So, you don’t have to panic about it every time you go into a large building that relies on man-made water systems.

But you do need to know the risks and symptoms so you can protect yourself and act quickly to get care if needed.

Is someone else liable if I have Legionnaires disease?

Maybe.

If a person or company does not properly maintain a water source, and you can prove that water source led to your Legionnaires disease infection, they could be held liable.

Public water sources need proper disinfectant and pH levels to kill the bacteria that causes the condition.

If a hotel doesn’t regularly check and maintain chlorine levels in a swimming pool, they could be liable for you having Legionnaires disease.

How long do I have to file my Legionnaires disease claim?

Each state has its own statute of limitations which controls how long you have to file a claim or file a lawsuit. If you wait to file longer than the state’s statute of limitations expiration date, then a court will throw out your case.

That’s why it is important to act as quickly as possible.

So, as soon as you are able, you should move forward with your Legionnaires disease claim.

Should I gather medical records?

No. Focus on your recovery or helping your family member get better.

You have enough stress. Your lawyers will make a formal and more complete request for medical records when necessary.

You should spend time documenting how the illness affects you or your loved one. This could be a daily written log, video log, or ideally, both.

How much does a Legionnaires’ disease lawsuit cost?

It does not cost you anything upfront. Mullen & Mullen and our co-counsel only charge a fee when your claim is won.

We may have to hire expert witnesses to prove the true extent of the harm caused to you and the financial damages that resulted. Once again, you have no risk because we only recover our case expenses if we win your claim.

We may have to hire expert witnesses to prove the true extent of the harm caused to you and the financial damage that resulted.

And you may have to talk to our private investigator.

But those services cost you absolutely nothing.

If our attorneys win your personal injury case, you get compensated for the costs of those expert witnesses.
