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.

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.

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.

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.

I highly recommend Mullen & Mullen Law Firm.  I was rear-ended by a semi-truck and lost work, needed rehab, was looking at mounting medical bills AND the truck company’s insurance company wouldn’t even respond to my communications. Joe Morrison, my attorney at Mullen & Mullen, and his team took over and got me a great settlement. Best of all, I barely had to do a thing.  As busy business owner, my time is extremely valuable. The high level of service that the “Mullen” team provided was exactly what I needed. They went the extra mile to earn my trust and respect.  Hiring an attorney can be a daunting task. I’m just so glad that I didn’t hire one of those TV ad truck accident firms. –Dan Levin

Shane Mullen is a great lawyer. He is not only great at his job, but he really cares about his clients! I was rear ended last December, and he not only got me in to see a chiropractor to start my healing but called them to let them know to call me and set up an appointment for me right away! They also referred me to a great auto body repair shop that had me up and going in no time. Then when it came time to deal with Geico about a settlement Shane went above and beyond to get me more than I expected. In my opinion when an accident happens you want the best. Best lawyer, best doctors, and best repair shop. I got all of that and then some by calling Mullen and Mullen! I would recommend them to anyone. All my calls were returned, and emails answered so quickly, and his assistant Natalie is so sweet and patient! Always so ready to answer all my questions! –Michele Lambe



If you or a loved one has suffered a significant injury, you don’t have to face the legal complexities alone. Let the dedicated team at Mullen & Mullen Law Firm guide you through every step of the process. We are happy to provide you with a free initial consultation during which we can thoroughly discuss your circumstances, assess their merits, and provide you with honest legal advice.

One major insurer’s report says the average personal injury lawyer wins their client 2-3 times the insurance company’s initial offer. We routinely get clients 10-15x. And some even get 20x.



Experience our legal expertise in action through this case narrative, where a client achieved a settlement of $962,500.00 for a neck injury sustained in a commercial truck accident.

In this particular situation, a truck driver was traveling west on US 287 but failed to exercise proper caution, resulting in an unsafe lane change. This reckless maneuver led to a collision with another motorist, causing her to suffer a neck injury. It’s important to note that the injured party had a history of significant spine surgery in her medical records.

Regrettably, insurance companies often exploit pre-existing medical conditions in an attempt to limit their payout. They argued that some of the injuries might have been related to her previous spine surgery.

However, in accordance with Texas law, the “Eggshell Doctrine” prevailed. This principle dictates that the plaintiff should receive compensation for all injuries resulting from the accident, regardless of any exacerbation due to pre-existing conditions.

To ensure our client’s success, Shane Mullen recommended comprehensive documentation of any new or aggravated symptoms following the accident, along with obtaining medical evidence of these symptoms. The client underwent multiple laminectomies to address the damaged vertebrae.

When negotiations commenced with the insurer, they predictably argued that the accident’s force could not have necessitated surgery. In response, Shane highlighted the documented new symptoms and emphasized that even a moderate accident could worsen pre-existing injuries.

Ultimately, the insurer was compelled to pay $962,500.00. Furthermore, our reduced 29% case fee resulted in the client saving $70,000, as her claim was settled without the need for a lawsuit!

Pay Only After Your Claim is Settled

Everyone can afford Mullen & Mullen. That’s because we only charge you after your claim is settled. So, you can easily afford the best personal injury attorneys in St. Louis!

When you schedule your free consultation, you’ll learn exactly what we can do for you. Many clients learn they have winnable claims when other personal injury lawyers told them that wasn’t the case.

Get all your questions answered. Feel our compassion and kindness as we calmly walk through your case. And just sit back and relax while you share what happened.

Plus, do it all with no obnoxious high sales pressure to hire us now. Simply learn what we can do for you, get your questions answered, and then make your decision when you feel good and ready.


In Missouri, you have five years from the date of your accident to file your personal injury claim. This sounds like a long time. But remember that defendants intentionally lose or destroy evidence as soon as they can. Preservation of evidence, and securing witnesses, are crucial to your case. So, you’re wise to file your claim as soon after your accident as you’re able.

Start the process with a free consultation with Mullen & Mullen by calling (314) INJURED.


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. The following are the types of cases we see most frequently, but we are not limited to these:

  • St. Louis Car Accidents – They’re the most common type of personal injury. That means lots of money is at stake. So, of course, insurers will aggressively defend these claims. Fortunately, Mullen & Mullen has a combined nearly 90 years of experience winning every type of car accident claim you can imagine.
  • St. Louis Slips and Falls – Property owners owe you a duty of care to take reasonable actions to keep their property free of dangerous conditions. When they fail to do so, we hold them responsible for the harm they cause you.
  • St. Louis Truck Accidents – Truckers are under a lot of pressure to drive as fast as possible. Sometimes, trucking companies even force their drivers to break the law. When truckers drive with negligence and cause you harm, we’ll help you get max compensation for your injuries.
  • St. Louis Motorcycle Accidents – You must admit motorcycles can be hard to see because you’re not used to looking for them. However, that doesn’t absolve drivers of all responsibility. If a driver negligently causes you harm while you’re riding, we’ll help you get max compensation for your injuries.
  • St. Louis Work Accidents – Employers have an obligation to provide a reasonably safe workplace and to notify employees of dangerous conditions. When they fail to do so and act with negligence, we help you get max compensation for your injuries.
  • St. Louis Dog Bites – Everybody loves dogs. But not every dog loves every person. When a dog bites or attacks you, and the owner is negligent in the matter, we help you hold them responsible for your injuries.
  • St. Louis Wrongful Death – Any of the above accidents, or any personal injury situation, can result in death. If your loved one loses their life because of someone else’s negligence, we help you get max compensation for your loss.


To witness our legal expertise in action, delve into this concise narrative illustrating how one of our clients secured a $962,500.00 settlement for a neck injury sustained in a commercial truck accident:

On a westward journey along US 287, a truck driver’s momentary lapse of attention led to an unsafe lane change, resulting in a collision with a fellow motorist who suffered a neck injury. It’s worth noting that the injured party had a significant prior history of spine surgery in her medical records.

Unfortunately, insurance companies often attempt to leverage pre-existing conditions to reduce their payout obligations. We foresaw their potential argument, suggesting that at least some of the driver’s injuries were linked to her earlier spine surgery.

However, under Texas law, a principle known as “The Eggshell Doctrine” is applied. This doctrine mandates that the plaintiff should be taken as they are found, entitling them to compensation for all injuries resulting from the accident, even if pre-existing conditions exacerbated those injuries.

To bolster our client’s case, Shane Mullen recommended meticulous documentation of any new or exacerbated symptoms arising after the accident. Consequently, the client underwent multiple laminectomies to address damaged vertebrae.

During negotiations with the insurer, their expected stance was that the accident’s impact was insufficient to necessitate surgery. Shane countered this argument by emphasizing the well-documented new symptoms and the potential for even a moderate accident to exacerbate pre-existing injuries.

Ultimately, the insurer was compelled to settle for $962,500.00, delivering a substantial win for the client. Additionally, our client saved $70,000 through our reduced 29% case fee, as her claim was resolved without the need for a lawsuit.


When someone else causes your harm, it always seems obvious to understand exactly what happened and who’s at fault. But Missouri law and your own practical understanding are two different things.

Following is what our personal injury lawyers look for to see if you have a truly winnable claim:

Did Someone Owe You A Duty Of Care?

To have a valid personal injury claim, the other party must have owed you a duty of care. For example, a doctor owes you a duty of care because they charge for their services and have a level of expertise above and beyond the lay person.

However, a friend telling you about a natural supplement that relieves pain does not owe you a duty of care. So, you can possibly sue the doctor. But you can’t sue your friend.

Was The Duty Of Care Breached?

Speaking generally, law allows people to be imperfect and make mistakes. However, they generally must exercise the same care a reasonable person would in that situation.

If they act differently than a reasonable person would, you likely have a personal injury claim. For example, someone driving drunk is not acting like a reasonable person. Therefore, you have a claim you can pursue if they cause you injuries and damages.

Did The Breach Cause Your Damages?

Insurers love this one because they know how to lever it to their advantage. They agree that you’re injured. However, they’ll argue their customer’s actions didn’t cause your injuries.

For example, they may use Facebook pictures you post after an accident to show that the accident didn’t cause your injuries (even if that really was the case).

When injured and seeking compensation, you must show the breach in the duty of care resulted in your injuries.

Did Your Damages Happen In The Past 5 Years?

Missouri’s statute of limitations says you have five years from the date of your accident to file your claim. Wait longer than that, and your claim will be tossed out in court.

Five years is a long time. However, you still should pursue your claim with a personal injury attorney as soon after your accident as possible. That’s because the longer you wait, the more time the other party must destroy evidence and mount their defense. Don’t give them any more time than is necessary.

Don’t Make Devastating Mistakes

Personal injury law allows you to be imperfect. Missouri is a “partial fault” state, which means that you can still recover compensation for your injuries, even if you bear some fault.

At the same time, you can still make game-changing mistakes that could cost you your entire claim. For example, those Facebook pictures could be enough to do just that.

You can also make lesser mistakes like apologizing or failing to follow your doctor’s orders. Those mistakes may not cost you your claim entirely. But they still could cost you a lot of money.

This is another reason to hire a personal injury lawyer immediately. One can tell you what mistakes to avoid so you get the most compensation possible for your injuries.

Simply learn how we’ll approach your case and get some excellent free advice. Make your decision only when you feel 100% ready. Do remember though, that the Missouri statute of limitations gives you just 5 years from the date of your accident to file a claim. BUT if you wait to contact a lawyer it may be too late to gather evidence. It’s critical to your potential claim to ACT FAST.

We’ll come to your home or hospital room if it makes it easier on you! Phone and Zoom consultations are also available. You can call us, or use the form or chat feature on this page to request a free consultation now.
