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.

Highly recommend!!!Jacob ColerickJacob Colerick ★★★★★ I cannot express how much Mullen & Mullen helped me turn a rough situation into something I could get through and manage properly.I was in a car accident on the way to work, and had chosen Joseph Morrison to represent and advise me on the matter. 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... 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. 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.

I highly recommend everyone to give him a call before turning into any other lawyer.

A Message From Our Managing Partner

Shane V. Mullen, Managing Partner, Mullen & Mullen Law Firm“Workplace injury cases are a minefield – it’s best to get an experienced advocate.”

2021-top-50-personal-injury-settlements-tx-mullen-mullen-500pxWorkplace injury cases demand strategic decision-making from the outset. It is crucial that you reach out to us promptly if you have suffered a work-related injury. Remember, our firm is dedicated to assisting individuals who have been injured on the job due to the negligence of a third party or company.

Three Best Rated: Best Business of 2023For instance, consider one of our clients, a subcontractor who sustained severe injuries in a fall while working on an apartment building construction project. These injuries were a result of another subcontractor’s employee creating a hidden hazard at the job site. In another case, our client was employed in a warehouse, where he suffered a crushing injury when a delivery driver from another company ran over his foot.

In both of the above cases, the injured workers’ legal claims were not directed at their own employers; rather, they pursued cases against the respective employers of those responsible. In such situations, we can represent you against the third party and assist you in promptly assessing the implications of receiving treatment from “company doctors” or doctors of your choice.

Awarded Texas Top 20 Personal Injury Settlements 2021 by Top VerdictA significant factor in any case is whether your employer provides workers’ compensation benefits in the State of Texas. Employers offering such benefits are termed “subscribers,” while those who do not are categorized as “non-subscribers.” It’s important to be aware that some employers may falsely claim to offer workers’ compensation coverage. It is crucial to verify your employer’s true status by contacting the Texas Department of Insurance – Workers’ Compensation division.

Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum MembersIf your employer is a non-subscriber, and your injury resulted from your company’s negligence or a co-worker’s negligence, we can still offer assistance. We have successfully handled numerous cases where non-subscriber employers failed to provide adequate safety measures, training, protective equipment, or allowed unsafe conditions to persist. In such cases, the employer forfeits certain legal defenses, and even a minimal amount of negligence on their part can render them fully liable for your damages. Think of it as a penalty for not providing genuine Texas workers’ compensation insurance benefits to their employees.

Top Choice Award 2023We also regularly represent grieving families whose loved ones have lost their lives while working. The legal framework differs in such cases. If your family member’s death was a result of their employer’s negligence or that of a co-worker, and their employer subscribes to authentic Texas Workers’ Compensation insurance, your family is not likely to be restricted to seeking compensation solely within the workers’ compensation system.

Awarded Texas Top 20 Personal Injury Settlements 2021 by Top VerdictTo prevail against your deceased family member’s subscriber employer, we must establish that the company’s conduct was grossly negligent. Meeting this higher standard necessitates launching our investigation and securing expert testimony as soon as possible. Additionally, we strive to work closely with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) whenever feasible.

Workplace injury cases are complex and require careful navigation. There is no charge for reaching out to us. We will thoroughly discuss the unique details of your case and determine how we can best assist you. We are committed to providing as much time as necessary to offer you sound guidance and will direct you to a qualified workers’ compensation attorney if that is the most suitable course of action for your circumstances.

About Work Injury Cases

Are you dealing with a worker’s compensation or personal injury claim?

Workplace Accident AttorneysWorker’s compensation and personal injury claims operate differently, but in both cases, you have the right to hold your employer accountable for injuries sustained at work.

Interestingly, Texas stands as the only state in the entire United States that doesn’t mandate companies above a certain size to carry worker’s compensation. While this may seem unusual, it presents an advantage: recovering financial compensation is typically easier from companies that don’t subscribe to Texas Workers’ Compensation. Legal defenses available to “subscribers” are often inaccessible to “non-subscribers,” as the Texas legal system incentivizes employers to provide Workers’ Compensation to their employees.

Despite approximately 81% of Texas employees being covered, there remains a substantial portion without coverage. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation system in Texas tends to favor businesses over workers.

Here’s a guide to help you determine whether you have a worker’s comp or personal injury claim:

Verify Workplace Subscription to Worker’s Comp

Determining your employer’s subscription status can be challenging. Some employers may appear to have workers’ compensation when they only have insurance resembling it. Contact the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation to officially establish your employer’s status as a subscriber or non-subscriber to “true” Texas workers’ compensation.

If They Are a Subscriber

If your employer is a subscriber, you are limited to filing a worker’s compensation claim. Filing a personal injury claim against your employer is not an option unless there was gross negligence leading to the worker’s death. If a third party is responsible for your injuries, you can still file a workers’ compensation claim and retain the right to file a third-party action against the at-fault party.

Challenges with Worker’s Comp

Worker’s compensation benefits may not be sufficient to cover actual damages, and the process can involve numerous hurdles. However, if a third party, like a manufacturer of defective equipment, is involved, you can file a personal injury claim against them while also pursuing a worker’s comp claim.

If Your Employer Doesn’t Have Worker’s Comp

In the case of a non-subscriber employer negligently causing your injuries, you have a personal injury claim against them. This situation can be advantageous as non-subscribers lose many legal defenses that would otherwise be available.

Take Swift Action – Promptness is Crucial in Work Accident Claims!

Acting swiftly is imperative. Jurors are inclined to believe that honest individuals take prompt action, making it easier to convince them of the validity of your case when you promptly file your injury claim. Additionally, crucial evidence needed to support your claim may be lost or destroyed the longer you delay. If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, act promptly to safeguard your rights. Contact Mullen & Mullen today!

With 40 years of experience, our attorneys have successfully secured compensation for Texans injured on the job.

If you’ve sustained a workplace injury in Texas, our Plano work accident attorneys may be able to help you recover damages. For over four decades, Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has been assisting Texans injured at work.

Mullen & Mullen Law Firm can likely aid in recovering damages if your injury resulted from your employer’s (or a co-worker’s) negligence and the company does not subscribe to benefits.

Moreover, if a third party, other than your employer (or a co-worker), is responsible for your injuries, we can assist you irrespective of whether your employer subscribes to benefits. Additionally, if your loved one’s workplace death resulted from gross negligence, we can help, even if the employer is/was a subscriber.

Contrary to common misconceptions, you can file a work accident claim in Texas under certain circumstances, even if the injury occurred during the course and scope of your employment. For instance:

  • Our attorneys can assist if a loved one’s workplace fatality resulted from the gross negligence of their employer, regardless of the employer’s subscription to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.
  • We can also help if your injuries at work resulted from the negligence of a person or company other than your employer, even if your employer subscribes to benefits.
  • Our attorneys are available to assist if your injuries at work resulted from the negligence of your employer or co-worker, provided the company is a non-subscriber to benefits.

Determining your eligibility to file a claim against your current or former employer involves a comprehensive examination of various factors.

The Impact of Subscriber vs. Non-Subscriber Work Accident Claims

Can you pursue a claim if the company provides Workers’ Compensation benefits, and your on-the-job injury resulted from negligence?

Likely not. If your employer offers Workers’ Compensation benefits, they are classified as a “Subscriber” to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. In most cases where the company is a Subscriber and negligence by the company or a co-worker is involved, your primary legal recourse is to file a Texas Workers’ Compensation claim.

Remember: You can still file a wrongful death case against your loved one’s workplace, even if they are a “Subscriber,” if the fatality resulted from the company’s gross negligence.

Also, remember: If you were injured on the job or during the course and scope of your employment, but your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party (not your employer or a co-worker), you can file a work accident claim against the third party, even if your employer is a subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.

Can you file a claim if the company does not provide Workers’ Compensation benefits, and your on-the-job injury resulted from negligence?

Probably so. If the company does not offer Workers’ Compensation benefits, they are considered a “Non-Subscriber” to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, and you generally have the right to file a work accident claim against them.

Remember: If your employer is a Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, you must still establish that the company or a co-worker was negligent in causing your injuries. Winning is not automatic; you need to demonstrate wrongdoing by your employer or co-worker.

Also, remember: Texas encourages companies to provide Workers’ Compensation benefits to employees. Therefore, if a company is a Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they are penalized by being denied certain common law defenses they would typically be allowed to assert, including:

Assumption of the Risk:

The company cannot claim that you assumed the risk of injury or death associated with your employment.

Contributory Negligence:

If your employer is a Non-Subscriber, they cannot argue that you were guilty of comparative negligence. However, they can assert that you were solely responsible for your injuries.

Fellow Servant:

In cases where the company is a Non-subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they are unable to use the defense that your injury or death resulted from the negligence of a co-worker.

How Can Our Attorneys Assist You?

Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has provided representation for numerous clients who sustained injuries on the job in situations where their employers did not provide Workers’ Compensation coverage. Our attorneys possess well-trained accident investigators with expertise in establishing the necessary evidence to build and win your case. If required, we are not hesitant to engage Certified Safety Experts and OSHA Experts to establish liability against your employer. Cases of this nature demand strategic thinking, and Mullen & Mullen is dedicated to providing you with the advantage you need.

Are there scenarios where the company’s Subscriber or Non-Subscriber status doesn’t impact your claim?

Yes. For instance, if you were injured at work or during the course and scope of your employment, but your injuries were caused by someone other than your employer or co-worker, you are always free to pursue personal injury damages against the negligent third party.

Remember: If your loved one suffered a fatal workplace incident due to the gross negligence of their employer, you can pursue a personal injury case against the employer, regardless of whether they are a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.

What are some examples illustrating the impact of Subscriber vs. Non-Subscriber status on your claim?

Consider the examples below to gain insight into how your employer’s classification as a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber may affect your legal rights.

Example 1

You work as a delivery driver for a company that is a Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. While making a delivery in a company van, you are rear-ended by a negligent driver. You can file a Workers’ Compensation Claim because your injuries occurred during the course and scope of your employment. You are also entitled to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver because your injuries resulted from the negligence of a third party.

Example 2

You are employed in a warehouse and operate a forklift for a company that is a Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. A co-worker, not paying attention, collides with your forklift, causing you to fall and sustain injuries. You can file a Workers’ Compensation Claim because your injuries occurred during the course and scope of your employment. However, you are not entitled to file a personal injury claim as your injuries resulted from the negligence of your employer and/or co-worker.

Example 3

Assuming similar facts to the above example but with the company being a Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. Since your employer does not provide Workers’ Compensation benefits, you ARE entitled to file a personal injury claim against the company for the negligent actions of your co-worker and/or the negligent actions of the company itself.

Negligent Third-Parties in Workplace Injury Claims

If your workplace provides Workers’ Compensation benefits, can you still initiate a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent third party responsible for your injuries?

Yes. If the company is a Subscriber and offers Workers’ Compensation benefits, you have the option to pursue BOTH a Workers’ Compensation claim AND a personal injury lawsuit.

Remember: If the company provides Workers’ Compensation benefits, you generally cannot pursue a personal injury lawsuit against your employer or co-worker, even in cases of negligence. However, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit if your injuries resulted from the actions of a negligent third party.

Example 1

Consider an assembly plant where your workplace provides Workers’ Compensation benefits. If a co-worker, not paying attention, collides with you and causes injuries, you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. However, if a UPS employee enters the plant to deliver a package and collides with you due to negligence, you CAN pursue a personal injury lawsuit because the UPS employee is a negligent third party.

Example 2

Imagine working for Best Buy’s Geek Squad, and Best Buy offers Workers’ Compensation benefits. While driving to an installation, another driver runs a red light and T-bones your VW Beetle. You can file a Workers’ Compensation claim because the injury occurred in the course and scope of your employment with Best Buy. Additionally, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance company.

Establishing Liability Against an Employer if Hurt on the Job

If your workplace lacks Workers’ Compensation benefits and you sustain an injury on the job, does this guarantee an automatic victory in your Personal Injury case?

No. In the case of a Non-Subscriber employer, you still need to demonstrate negligence on the part of the employer or a co-worker and establish that this negligence directly caused your injuries. In essence, you are still required to prove that your employer or co-worker engaged in wrongful conduct.

Example:

Imagine your employer is a Non-Subscriber and does not provide Workers’ Compensation benefits. Your workplace supplies you with a back brace for lifting heavy items, and your job duties involve lifting at least 50 pounds. While lifting a 15-pound piece of equipment, you experience a freak injury, straining a back muscle. In such a scenario, it is unlikely that the employer would be deemed negligent, as they provided a back brace, and the weight lifted was below the specified maximum.

How do you establish liability against the employer?

Establishing liability against your employer can be achieved through various methods. To succeed in your case, you must demonstrate that your employer was negligent, meaning they failed to act as a reasonably prudent company would under similar circumstances. You need to show that your employer’s actions or lack thereof led to your injury.

What are some scenarios in which your workplace might be negligent for your injuries?

Keep in mind that injuries can occur in numerous ways, and various factors may contribute to them. The examples provided below are not exhaustive. If you have any uncertainties about whether your employer’s conduct or lack of action played a role in your injuries, seek a free consultation from a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Examples:

Negligent Supervision:

Your employer may be liable if your injuries result from negligent supervision of your co-workers or inadequate supervision, such as being left alone and unsupervised while learning a new skill like welding.

Negligent Training:

Your employer may be liable if inadequate training, whether for you or a co-worker, contributes to your injuries.

Not Providing Proper Equipment:

If your job requires regular lifting of 50 pounds, and your employer fails to provide a necessary weight belt, you can argue that the workplace was negligent for not supplying proper safety equipment.

Not Implementing or Enforcing Policies and Procedures:

Your employer could be liable if they fail to establish or enforce proper policies and procedures in the workplace.

Not Warning of Known Dangers:

If your employer is aware of dangerous activities or areas on the premises and fails to warn you, they could be held liable, among other possibilities.

About Claims Involving Death and Gross Negligence

Can your family pursue a wrongful death action if your loved one was killed due to their employer’s gross negligence?

Certainly. Whether your loved one’s employer is a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber, your family has the right to bring forth a personal injury claim against the employer.

Keep in mind: If your loved one was killed at work due to the ordinary negligence of a subscribing employer, the exclusive remedy would be through the workers’ compensation system.

How Can Our Attorneys Assist?

Our legal team is committed to investing the necessary resources to secure experts who can substantiate claims of gross negligence, enabling the potential recovery of punitive damages.

In cases where your loved one sustained catastrophic injuries due to their workplace’s gross negligence, are punitive damages potentially recoverable?

No. Punitive damages are only attainable if the employer was grossly negligent and the injuries suffered by your loved one resulted in death.

Multi-Employer Work Sites

What defines a multi-employer work site?

A multi-employer work site, commonly seen in construction projects, involves multiple companies with their employees working concurrently at the same site. For instance, a general contractor may hire sub-contractors like electricians, plumbers, roof experts, flooring experts, etc.

Keep in mind: If you were injured due to a co-worker’s negligence, and your employer is a Subscriber, filing a Workers’ Compensation claim is likely your exclusive remedy for the sustained injuries. However, if you were on the work site as an employee of ABC Electricians and suffered injuries due to the negligence of an employee of NOP Flooring, you would be eligible to file both a Workers’ Compensation claim and a personal injury claim against NOP Flooring since a negligent third party was responsible for your injuries.

Additionally, remember: The general contractor or the entity that owns the work site could be held liable if they neglected proper supervision of the work site.

Getting Medical Treatment for Work-related Injuries

If you’ve been injured at work, are you eligible for necessary medical treatment?

Possibly. If your employer subscribes to benefits, you are likely to receive some medical treatment. However, it’s essential to note that many employers direct injured workers to medical providers that may hasten their return to work. If your employer doesn’t provide Workers’ Compensation benefits, they may guide you to a preferred medical provider, often with the goal of minimizing their liability.

Remember: Employers often recommend specific clinics for a reason – these clinics tend to be pro-employer and may encourage a swift return to work after a limited number of therapy sessions.

How Can Our Attorneys Assist?

Our Plano work accident attorneys have established a robust network of medical providers dedicated to serving injured workers. These providers prioritize your health and will not release you back to work unless it is safe to do so. Our network includes various professionals such as medical doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, MRI facilities, neurologists, surgical clinics, hospitals, counselors, and more.

What is the cost of all this medical treatment?

Dealing with mounting medical bills after a work injury can be challenging. We collaborate with medical providers who agree to postpone billing until the conclusion of your work accident claim. This ensures that you incur no initial out-of-pocket expenses for quality care, allowing you to focus on recovery and getting back to work to support your family.

Should you avoid seeing the Workers’ Compensation doctors?

Generally no. In many cases, you may have the right to file both a Workers’ Compensation claim AND a personal injury claim. It is usually recommended to follow your employer’s instructions and attend medical appointments, as non-compliance or missed appointments could jeopardize your workers’ compensation claim, making you ineligible for benefits.

Qualifying for a Law Loan

Can you qualify for a law loan to cover bills during your recovery from injuries?

Yes, you could. Law loan companies assess the risk of your case to determine whether they are comfortable loaning you funds in exchange for an assignment in the settlement proceeds of your case.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our attorneys are aware that law loan companies often require representation by a lawyer for an injured worker to be eligible for an advance. We have established relationships with major law loan companies, and some of them cap the amount of interest charged to Mullen & Mullen clients.

Compensable Damages in Workplace Injury Claims

What types of damages could be recoverable if your workplace is not a subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act?

In the event that your employer lacks coverage and you sustain injuries at work due to the negligence of the company or a co-worker, you have the right to seek damages from the company. Potential recoverable damages encompass past and future mental anguish, past and future physical impairment, past and future pain and suffering, loss of past earnings, loss of future earning capacity, recovery of past medical expenses, and any necessary future medical expenses.

Remember: If your work-related injuries were caused by a negligent third party (rather than your workplace or co-worker), you are entitled to the same damages mentioned above.

What damages may be available if the employer was grossly negligent and the injured worker succumbs to their injuries?

Answer: Punitive damages.

Workers’ Compensation Liens

Can the Workers’ Comp Carrier place a lien on the settlement proceeds from a negligent third-party responsible for your injuries?

Yes, it is likely. The right of the Workers’ Compensation carrier to recover a portion of your third-party settlement is known as the right of subrogation.

Do Workers’ Compensation carriers negotiate and reduce their lien or accept less than the owed amount?

Yes, most carriers are willing to reduce their lien, often as a courtesy or obligation (e.g., reducing the lien by 1/3 if you have legal representation and they do not). While not mandatory, carriers may agree to a reduction to secure at least a partial recovery.

How Can Our Attorneys Assist?

Our team specializes in negotiating down Workers’ Compensation liens, ensuring our clients retain more of their settlement. Our Plano work accident attorneys routinely engage with major subrogation recovery organizations.

What reduction can you expect if your injuries resulted from a negligent third party, and the workers’ compensation carrier does not hire its own counsel to pursue damages against the at-fault party?

Typically, you may be entitled to a 1/3 reduction in the workers’ compensation lien amount. For instance, if the carrier paid $150,000 in indemnity expenses, they might agree to reduce their lien to $100,000.

What if Your Employer Terminates You After a Workplace Injury?

Terminated abruptly following a work injury? Here’s what to do if you suspect your employer fired you due to your on-the-job injury.

It’s a distressing situation: you sustain a job-related injury, and shortly afterward, you are terminated under mysterious circumstances.

Being fired due to a workplace injury is unacceptable and may constitute “retaliatory discharge,” leading to legal action against the company.

Employers cannot terminate you for an on-the-job injury. If they claim otherwise, it could be considered retaliatory discharge, providing grounds for a lawsuit.

However, employers can circumvent this by citing performance issues or financial difficulties if you are an “at-will” employee.

A proficient personal injury attorney can help you find an employment law attorney if you experience retaliatory discharge.

Our Plano work injury attorneys offer free consultations to discuss your case, and you only pay if we secure a win. The worst-case scenario is discovering you don’t have a viable claim.
