$125,000 settlement for shoulder injury in Dallas, TX fall accident by attorney at over 3x times the incurred medical bills.
Our client was injured in a slip and fall accident at a truck stop in Dallas, Texas. In the process of falling he sustained a tear in his left shoulder that eventually required surgery. The client resided in Oklahoma.
Comments from Attorney Joseph Morrison: Our client did not have health insurance. Our personal injury law firm has long-standing relationships with medical providers throughout the State of Texas and we are routinely able to assist uninsured clients in receiving the medical attention they need and deserve.
In this particular case the client sustained a significant injury and I had to locate medical providers in Oklahoma who would be willing to agree to delay billing our client until the conclusion of his personal injury claim.
Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has been fighting for the rights of injured victims for 38 years. Our firm’s longevity and proven track record allowed me to quickly convince Oklahoma medical providers to work with us on the case.
Our client required a shoulder surgery that had to be performed at a hospital. We were able to convince the hospital and orthopedic surgeon in Oklahoma to proceed with the surgery based on our promise to pay them from the settlement proceeds of the case. This allowed our client to focus 100% on getting back to work as quickly as possible.
We were able to convince the at-fault company to agree to a pre-suit mediation. We presented a very strong case to the mediator and negotiated a fantastic settlement after many hours of discussions. I was especially pleased with the amount of the settlement given the client’s fairly low recoverable medical bills.
The settlement for this personal injury claim involving a shoulder injury as a result of a slip and fall accident in Dallas, TX was $125,000. Attorney fees were $35,000. Case expenses were $715.84. After paying medical providers, the client’s net recovery was $60,736.07.
