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 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 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.

Mullen & Mullen is consistently recognized by TopVerdict for obtaining some of the largest recoveries in the entire state of Texas.

Our stellar results allow us to offer a below industry standard 29% pre-suit contingency fee which means more money in your pocket.

Our experienced local team has an incredibly strong work ethic and truly cares. We’ve been privileged to serve North Texas for over 40 years. This is our backyard. Call (314) 465-8733 now for a free consultation and some excellent advice.

What Your Attorney Says

Workplace injury cases are a minefield – it’s best to get an experienced advocate.

Workplace injury cases demand a strategic approach right from the outset. It is crucial that you reach out to us as soon as possible if you’ve sustained injuries while on the job. Please keep in mind that our firm is here to assist you in cases of on-the-job injuries caused by the negligence of a third-party or a company.

For instance, one of our clients was a subcontractor who suffered a severe injury in a fall during the construction of an apartment building. His injuries were the result of a hazard created by an employee of a different subcontractor at the job site. In another case, our client worked in a warehouse assembling components and suffered a crushing injury when a driver from another company, delivering beverages, ran over his foot.

In both of the above instances, the injured workers’ legal claims were not against their own employers but rather against the respective employers of those individuals. In such cases, we can represent you against the third-party and promptly help you evaluate the implications of receiving treatment from “company doctors” or doctors of your own choice.

A significant factor in any case is whether your employer provides workers’ compensation benefits. If they do, they are categorized as a “subscriber.” If not, they are considered a “non-subscriber.” Be cautious, as some employers may purchase insurance coverage they might refer to as workers’ compensation when it doesn’t actually meet the criteria. It’s vital to contact the Missouri Department of Insurance – Workers’ Compensation division to determine your employer’s true status.

If your employer is a non-subscriber and your injury resulted from your own company’s negligence or a co-worker’s negligence, we can provide assistance. We have successfully handled numerous cases where non-subscriber employers failed to offer proper safety measures, training, equipment, or where they were aware of a dangerous condition and failed to rectify it, or even instructed their employees to engage in unreasonably dangerous activities. In such cases, the employer forfeits certain legal defenses, and even a mere 1% negligence on their part can render them 100% responsible for your damages. Think of it as a penalty to the employer for not providing genuine workers’ compensation insurance benefits to their employees.

We also regularly represent bereaved families whose loved ones were fatally injured while working. The legal landscape is different in these cases. If your deceased family member’s death was a result of their employer’s negligence or a co-worker’s negligence, and their employer is a subscriber to true Workers’ Compensation insurance, your family is likely not restricted from seeking compensation beyond the confines of the workers’ compensation system.

To prevail against your deceased family member’s subscriber employer, we must demonstrate that their company’s behavior was grossly negligent. Meeting this elevated standard necessitates beginning our investigation and enlisting experts as promptly as possible. It’s also essential to collaborate with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) whenever feasible.

Workplace injury cases are complex and challenging. There is no charge for an initial consultation with us. We will thoroughly review the specific details of your case and ascertain whether we can provide assistance. We are more than willing to invest as much time as needed to offer you proper guidance on your rights, and if necessary, we will guide you to a qualified workers’ compensation attorney best suited for your situation.

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.

What To Do Or Not Do

Though they may act like it, the insurance company is not the final authority when it comes to paying for your injuries. Remember, they lobby politicians to create a complex mess of a system that allows them to get out of paying what they should for your injuries.

How do you protect yourself from large insurers who know the system inside and out and use that to their advantage?

Here’s what you can do:

Know that the law covers you

Many employees don’t even realize workers compensation covers them. However, Missouri law requires employers with at least 5 employees to carry workers’ compensation. And all employers in the construction industry, regardless of how many employees they have, must carry it. And you are covered if you were hurt while traveling for work-related purposes (but not while commuting to and from work).

Don’t take your insurer’s or employer’s decision as the final word

If, at any point during the process of your claim, you don’t believe you are getting fair compensation for your injuries, you can involve a lawyer. This includes if your claim has been denied entirely. Consultations with workplace injury lawyers are free, so at the very worst, you’ll find out that you did indeed get fair treatment under Missouri law.

Beware of private investigators

Yes. Insurance companies will hire private investigators to follow you and try to find evidence that you’re not as injured as you say you are. Make sure you always tell the truth. And if the doctor gives you any orders, follow them perfectly.

Act quickly

To be covered by workers’ compensation, you have just 30 days from the date of your injury to notify your employer. You also have two years to file a claim (but remember you must report it within 30 days). That may be extended an additional year if your employer fails to promptly report your injury to the state Division of Workers’ Compensation.

Get prompt medical treatment

We get it…this could unleash a landslide of stress and medical bills you can’t afford. But, if you want to get fair compensation, you need to get medical treatment. It gives you proven documentation of your injuries and the full harm they have caused you. Remember, if Mullen & Mullen takes on your case, we can connect you with medical professionals who delay billing until after you win your claim.

Keep detailed records

You should keep your own journal regarding your injuries, and the pain and disruption they’ve caused to your life. Keep all the paper and electronic communications you get from all medical professionals you see. And keep the same from your employer as well. Your lawyer may be able to dig these up later on if you lose them. However, having your own copy in the first place guarantees you have what you need.

About Missouri Work Injury Cases

THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN MISSOURI WORKERS’ COMPENSATON LAW AND PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS

Can You Pursue a Personal Injury Claim If Your Employer Provides Workers’ Compensation Benefits, And Your On-The-Job Injury Resulted from the Negligence of Your Employer And / Or A Co-Worker?

Probably not. Any Missouri employer with five or more full-time or part-time employees is required to provide Missouri Workers’ Compensation benefits. In addition, Missouri construction industry employers are required to provide these benefits regardless of the number of employees. You will probably need to go through the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Law system if you were injured due to your employer’s negligence or a co-worker’s negligence and your employer falls into one of the above categories.

Remember: You can determine if your employer has workers’ compensation coverage by contacting the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation and/or the Missouri Division of Insurance.

Also, keep in mind: If your employer has five or more employees or is in the construction industry and fails to obtain Workers Compensation’ coverage as required, you may be able to select between seeking benefits under Workers’ Compensation (Second Injury Fund) OR pursuing an action in civil courts.

How Our Attorneys Can Assist You

Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has advocated for numerous clients injured on the job when their employers failed to provide Workers’ Compensation coverage for its employees. Our attorneys routinely work with skilled accident investigators, safety experts, and OSHA Experts and are prepared to establish liability against employers who fail to meet the requirements of Chapter 287 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri. These types of cases require strategic planning, and Mullen & Mullen can provide you with the advantage you need to be successful. Also, remember that our firm routinely assists employees who were injured at work due to the negligence of a third-party company or individual as described in more detail below.

Are There Scenarios Where You Can Pursue a Personal Injury Case Even If Your Employer Does Provide Missouri Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

Yes. For instance, if you sustained injuries at work or during the course and scope of your employment due to the negligence of someone other than your employer or co-worker, you retain the right to seek personal injury damages against the negligent third-party or company.

What Are Some Examples Illustrating the Impact of Subscriber Vs. Non-Subscriber Status On Your Claim?

Example 1

You work as a delivery driver for a company with 20 employees that provides Missouri Workers’ Compensation benefits to employees. While making a delivery in a company van, you are rear-ended by a negligent driver. You are eligible to file a Workers’ Compensation Claim because your injuries occurred during the course and scope of your employment. Additionally, you can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver as your injuries resulted from the negligence of a third party.

Example 2

You operate a forklift in a warehouse for a company that employees 50 people and subscribes to the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Act. A co-worker, not paying attention, collides with your forklift, causing you to sustain injuries. You are entitled to file a Workers’ Compensation Claim due to the occurrence happening during the course and scope of your employment. However, you likely cannot file a personal injury claim since your injuries resulted from the negligence of your employer and/or co-worker.

Example 3

Assume similar facts to the example above except the company is a Non-Subscriber to the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Act. Since your employer did not provide Workers’ Compensation benefits as required by the law, 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 Action 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 claim.

Remember: If the company provides Workers’ Compensation benefits, you typically cannot pursue a personal injury claim against your employer or co-worker, even in cases of negligence. However, you retain the right to pursue a personal injury claim if your injuries were caused by a negligent third-party.

Example 1

Imagine you work at an assembly plant, and your workplace provides Workers’ Compensation benefits. If a co-worker, not watching where they were going, collided with you, and caused injuries, you wouldn’t be able to file a personal injury action against your employer or co-worker. However, if a FedEx employee entered the plant to deliver a package and collided with you due to inattention, you COULD pursue a personal injury claim since the FedEx employee would be considered a negligent third-party. Under this scenario you were injured due to the negligence of FedEx – not your employer or co-worker.

Example 2

You work for Best Buy’s Geek Squad and Best Buy offers Missouri Workers’ Compensation benefits. While driving to an installation, another driver runs a red light and T-bones your Honda Accord. You CAN file a Workers’ Compensation claim because the injury occurred during the course and scope of your employment with Best Buy. Simultaneously, you are ALSO eligible to file a personal injury claim with the liability insurance company of the at-fault driver. Under this scenario you were injured due to a negligent third-party driver – not your employer or co-worker.

GETTING MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR WORK-RELATED INJURIES

If You’ve Been Injured at Work, Are You Entitled to Necessary Medical Treatment?

It is possible. If your employer subscribes to benefits, you will likely receive some medical treatment. However, note that many employers direct you to medical providers who may prioritize a swift return to work sometimes at the expense of quality healthcare. If your employer doesn’t offer Workers’ Compensation benefits, they may still guide you to a preferred medical provider to minimize their exposure.

Remember: Recommended clinics often have a pro-employer bias, pushing for a return to work after a limited number of therapy sessions.

How Can Our Attorneys Assist?

If you were injured while working due to the negligence of a third-party company or individual (not your employer), our St. Louis work accident attorneys have an extensive network of medical providers dedicated to injured workers. These providers prioritize your health and won’t release you back to work unless it’s safe. Our network includes medical doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, MRI facilities, neurologists, surgical clinics, hospitals, counselors, and more.

QUALIFYING FOR A LAW LOAN

Could You Be Eligible for a Law Loan to Cover Bills During Your Recovery?

Yes, it’s possible. Law loan companies assess the risk of your case to determine if they can provide funds in exchange for a share in your case’s settlement proceeds.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Many law loan companies require legal representation to advance funds. We have relationships with major law loan companies, and some even offer Mullen & Mullen clients capped interest rates.

RECOVERABLE DAMAGES IN WORKPLACE ACCIDENT CLAIMS FOR NON-SUBSCRIBERS TO THE TEXAS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ACT

If your workplace is not covered by the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Act and you sustain injuries due to the negligence of the company or a co-worker, you have the right to file a civil case against your employer and to seek damages from the company. Otherwise, Missouri Workers’ Compensation benefits will be the exclusive remedy.

Note: If your work-related injuries are caused by a negligent third party, rather than your workplace or co-worker, you can also pursue the damages mentioned above.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LIENS

Can The Workers’ Comp Carrier Place a Lien on The Proceeds Of Any Settlement You Might Reach With A Negligent Third Party Responsible For Your Injuries?

Yes, and 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.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our team is adept at negotiating down Workers’ Compensation liens, ensuring our clients retain more of their settlement funds. Our St. Louis work accident attorneys regularly engage with major subrogation recovery organizations.

EMPLOYER TERMINATION AFTER JOB INJURY

If you suspect your employer fired you shortly after a work-related injury, follow these steps:

  • Termination for an on-the-job injury is unlawful and could constitute retaliatory discharge, leading to legal action against the company.
  • If you believe you were a victim of retaliatory discharge, consult a personal injury attorney who can help you find an employment law attorney.

Our St. Louis work injury attorneys provide free consultations to discuss your case, with fees only when we win. If no claim is found, the worst-case scenario is obtaining clarity on your situation without any cost.
