Don’t Pay Any Medical Bills Until After Your Claim is Settled

If you were hurt by another person or company, due to their carelessness or negligence, you may have a personal injury claim. And you are suddenly facing a number of stressful problems, but don’t worry. Mullen & Mullen’s attorneys can help you get your life back on track.

  1. Worried how you’ll pay your medical bills? Relax. We’ll connect you with top-notch medical experts ASAP who have already agreed to not take payment until after you get money from winning your claim. We’ve developed these relationships over many years. Not only do these providers offer the best quality medical care in Plano, but they’ll also treat you very well because you are our client.
  2. What if you already have medical bills? We’ll help you keep your bills out of collections. And we’ll help you keep collectors and healthcare billing departments happy, even if you feel you don’t have insurance or can’t afford to pay up front. We’ll also help you navigate collections if you already have debt collectors after you.
  3. How will you recover from your injuries? Because we connect you with top-notch medical professionals we’ve known for years, you can trust they will help you recover as fast as possible.
  4. What if the insurer doesn’t want to pay? Or, what if they’ve already made an offer? Is it fair? We have a combined 95 years of legal experience, which includes some work for insurance companies. Our personal injury lawyers know how to get you maximum compensation for your injuries, regardless of your circumstances.
  5. What can you do about your lost income and possible inability to pay your current bills while you wait for your claim to settle? We can help you successfully navigate any financial situation you find yourself in, even if you’re broke and can’t work. We can connect you with “law loan” companies. These companies give you 5-10% of your potential settlement amount in cash just 24 hours or so after communicating with our team. This also happens early on after you become our client so you don’t find yourself without cash for weeks on end. And if, in the rare event you don’t win your claim, you don’t have to pay your loan back. You do have to pay interest. But it’s the best option if you have no other financial resources available. And we can connect you with quality law loan companies.
  6. What about repairing your car? We have relationships with top auto repair companies too. Not only do they do excellent work, but they get it done fast also. No need to worry about your car.
  7. What about your emotional trauma? We’re easy to work with and known for our calm, neighborly demeanor. You’ll feel listened to and cared for. You’ll also feel like our top priority as you interact with everyone at our office, including your lawyer. And we can help you recover compensation for counseling (and connect you with excellent counselors) if you feel you need it.
  8. How will you handle the stress? Mullen & Mullen in Plano takes care of all the difficult logistics involved in your recovery so you only have to focus on healing and getting back to normal. You’ll understand exactly what’s happening and where your case is at. And you can always talk directly to your lawyer (and not just their assistant). Focus your mental energy on resting and recuperating.

Mullen & Mullen is fantastic. I highly recommend. They helped me and my wife both get maximum policy limits on our wreck from a drunk driver… Thank you; we are really happy with the outcome… – Jimmy Casillas

I contacted Mullen & Mullen after I got into a bad collision with another driver. When I stepped into their office, they were professional and courteous. My attorney took the time to explain all of my options and answered every question I had. Ultimately, they got me a great settlement far greater than I expected. -Emily Dueck Arantes

I want to share our experience with Mullen & Mullen who Truly is a five star law firm. My daughter was involved in a serious accident she was 8 1/2 months pregnant and she suffered serious injuries and lost her baby. The person that hit her had no drivers license and no insurance. Not deterred by this Joseph Morrison was masterful at working our case. He was able to get our insurance company to agree to the maximum settlement under our uninsured/underinsured coverage. In addition he was also able to get our health insurance company to drop a huge lien against our settlement. Joe Morrison and his team were so empathetic to our situation. Even though there are limits to what you can be awarded under uninsured/underinsured they never made us feel unimportant. They fought for us and we felt as though they truly cared about us and wanted to have the best possible outcome. Joe Morrison was a true champion for our family and we highly recommend him and their firm. We are so glad that we chose Mullen and Mullen and so grateful for the quality services they provided. We all feel they are the best choice among many and were the right choice for our family. -Lisa Tennant

When You Choose Us, You’ll Also Get All of This

  • An experienced personal injury attorney does all the real work on your claim. Many firms allow an inexperienced junior attorney to do that work while an experienced senior attorney only supervises. This can cost you thousands. And you have a higher chance of losing your claim entirely.
  • Because of our 95 years of combined experience, we have direct experience in claims just like yours. There’s many personal injury attorneys in the Plano area. But not all have experience in claims with your specific circumstances. Choosing a personal injury attorney with experience winning claims just like yours gives you a much higher chance of winning and nets you more money.
  • We employ our own in-house accident investigator. Most firms contract these services out, which costs you more. Employing one reduces those costs and puts thousands more in your pocket. And since we know the quality of his work, that means he collects the most powerful evidence that gives you the most persuasive claim possible.
  • We’re a small firm of just three attorneys. That means you’ll get the personalized attention and service you deserve. And it means the same for your legal claim. Larger firms frequently fall victim to processing as many claims as fast as they possibly can. You may win. But you have a good chance of missing out on tens of thousands of dollars because they’re in such a rush to maximize their profit per hour.
  • You pay just a 29% case fee after you win your claim, as long as it doesn’t go to court. 90% of our claims settle without going to court. And all other personal injury attorneys charge a 33.3% fee.

To see our excellence in action, learn about this case of a bicyclist hit by a commercial truck driver. The police report actually faulted the bicyclist, even though the truck driver left the scene of the accident!

We went to work on behalf of the bicyclist, who was left with a pool of blood clotted in her body (called a “hematoma”) and numerous cuts and scrapes. Though serious, the injuries were non-life-threatening. But, this still required an ambulance trip, time in the hospital, and eventually, open carpal tunnel release surgery. The bicyclist also needed physical therapy and ongoing pain management assistance while she recovered.

The truck driver was charged with a crime. And communication with the prosecutor of the case revealed that at least one witness’s account confirmed the bicyclist’s version of events.

Not only did we have this evidence that supported the bicyclist and countered the erroneous police report, but we also argued that an innocent truck driver would not leave the accident scene. We also learned this same truck driver fled from the scene of a different accident in the past and presented that information during mediation.

While we didn’t have a helpful police report, we were able to get the bicyclist $147,897 for her injuries and missed time from work.

Types of Personal Injuries We Handle

Awarded Texas Top 10 Personal Injury Settlements 2021 by Top Verdict

At Mullen & Mullen, our lawyers have a combined 95 years of experience. That means we’ve seen all kinds of personal injury cases and know how to handle each.

You may find yourself a victim of one of these such claims:

  1. Car accidents in Plano – Plano is one of the most dangerous suburbs in the Metroplex. And the Metroplex is one of the most dangerous metro areas to drive in all of the United States. Unfortunately, you have a high chance of finding yourself in a car accident.
  2. Slip and fall accidents in Plano – Property owners and retail stores do get careless. You have an obligation to act in a safe and reasonable manner too. But you shouldn’t have to pay for a slip-and-fall that’s really the property owner’s fault.
  3. Truck accidents in Plano – Commercial truck drivers are frequently pushed to drive as fast and long as possible. Many aren’t concerned with your safety. We can help you get fair compensation if you find yourself in a commercial truck accident.
  4. Motorcycle accidents in Plano – Drivers frequently don’t look for motorcycles. In one of the most dangerous cities to drive in all of the US, it’s possible you’ll find yourself in a motorcycle accident.
  5. Work accidents in Plano – Texas law is complicated because it’s the only state that doesn’t require most employers to subscribe to workers compensation. But, that actually works to your advantage because then you can file a personal injury claim. And that’s where we can help.
  6. Dog bites in Plano – No one can force dog owners to be responsible. Texas follows the “one-bite” rule which usually gives dog owners one free bit. However, this doesn’t always apply. We can get you fair compensation if you’re the victim of a dog bite.
  7. Wrongful death in Plano – Any of the above situations can unfortunately result in your loved one’s death. We’re here to help you get fair compensation if it happens.

How Do You Know if You Have a Strong Claim?

Speaking at a general level, personal injury claims need a few strong criteria to be successful. Ultimately, you’ll know for certain after talking to one of our lawyers. Here’s generally what we’ll look for:

  1. The Defendant Owed You A Duty of Care: You must have a legal or formal relationship or obligation with the defendant. For example, if you fall and get hurt at a neighbor’s house, they do owe you a duty of care and you might be able to hold them liable for your injuries. However, if you have a friend who’s a doctor and they give you advice while you meet for lunch, you can’t hold them legally responsible. That’s because they don’t owe you a duty of care in that situation. However, if you see them at their office and pay for their services, they do owe you a duty of care.
  2. The Defendant Breached That Duty of Care: In legal terms, this means the defendant must act with the watchfulness, attention, and prudence that a reasonable person would under the same circumstances. Failing to meet this duty means that you can possibly hold the person financially liable if their actions caused you injuries or damages.
  3. You Incurred Damages As a Direct Result of the Breach: While you may experience an injury you believe happened as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, you must prove it. This can be quite difficult in some cases. For example, whiplash may not show up until several days after a car accident. Insurers will work hard to show that such an injury happened for some reason unrelated to the car accident.
  4. The Situation Happened Within the Past 2 Years: In Texas, you have two years from the date of your accident to file your claim. Wait longer than that, and you can never again seek compensation for your injuries. At the same time, there are some exceptions to the “statute of limitations” as it is called. But these only apply to specific situations. So, you’re wise to pursue your claim as fast as possible.
  5. You Haven’t Made Mistakes That Would Harm Your Case: You don’t necessarily have to be perfect and completely blameless. But unfortunately, you can make mistakes that mitigate the compensation you receive, or even cause you to lose it all. For example, if you claim to be hurt by a slip and fall and then post pictures of yourself hiking on Facebook a few days later, you might lose your claim entirely. Or, if after a car accident you choose to ignore your doctor’s advice, the insurer can argue you had some blame for your injuries too. In that case, you could possibly miss out on some compensation you would otherwise get.

How to Choose a Personal Injury Attorney Who Will Win You the Maximum Available Settlement


Not all personal injury attorneys are the same. Choose the wrong personal injury attorney, and they might lose you tens of thousands of dollars…or perhaps tell you that you don’t even have a claim!

You can always seek a second opinion. You’re wise to talk to a few personal injury lawyers and compare what they say. Just like any other profession where thousands of dollars are at stake, do some research before you make your decision.

As you shop around, here’s what to do:

  1. Ask your lawyer about results they’ve achieved for cases similar to yours. No two cases are exactly the same. But your lawyer should have experience with cases with similar circumstances to yours. Believe it or not, not all lawyers who advertise themselves as “personal injury lawyers” have handled claims like yours. The closer a lawyer’s experience to your case type, the more likely you are to win and the more money you will win.
  2. Ask your lawyer who does the real work on your claim. Many law firms, and especially the large ones and ones that advertise on TV, have you meet with the senior attorney. However, they frequently only supervise. And then they hand off most of the real work to an inexperienced junior attorney or paralegal. Sometimes, junior attorneys do all the arguing in court. And of course, you can bet this costs you money. Make sure you ask who does the real work on your claim.
  3. Research Google Reviews. The personal injury lawyers you consider should all have a great Google Review rating (4.6 or better) and at least a handful of reviews. Yes, they will have some competitors who might throw on a fake negative review or two. Even so, they should still have many more positive Google reviews. Read those reviews to see what clients say. Yes, this takes time. But remember, choosing the right lawyer could put tens of thousands of dollars more in your pocket.
  4. Examine their professional associations and achievements. Every lawyer is a member of their State Bar. It’s legally required to be a lawyer in each state. However, it doesn’t really indicate anything about their skill. Associations like Super Lawyers, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Rue Ratings’ Best Attorneys of America, Martindale, and the National Trial Lawyers require proven skill for lawyers to become members. Usually, the lawyer must be in the top 1% of lawyers in their state to be invited. This indicates a proven ability to achieve tangible results.
  5. You should feel comfortable with your lawyer at a personal level. You’ve certainly heard people speak negatively about lawyers and their personal demeanor. While many can be difficult to interact with, some are also nice people, just like your next door neighbor. It shouldn’t be overly stressful to communicate with your personal injury lawyer on a regular basis. You should feel fairly comfortable with them on a personal level.

Overall, the point is to not go with the first lawyer you talk to, even though it might take you time and hard work to find the right one. Like anything in life, patience is a virtue. And since so much money and your quality of life are at stake, it makes sense to do thorough research and only go with the lawyer you trust the most.
