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 am so grateful that my case was accepted by them and very thankful that I have been awarded a great and beyond imagination settlement because Shane Mullen fought for me relentlessly. I highly recommend everyone to give him a call before turning into any other lawyer. Great job and Thank you again!Danielle ValentinoDanielle Valentino ★★★★★ I had used them before and I delt with Shane Mullen and I can say by far the BEST lawyer I have used! Helped me tremendously! If you need a lawyer call them.

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 require strategic decision-making from the very onset. It’s critical that you contact us as quickly as possible if you’ve been hurt on the job. Remember, our firm will always help if you were injured on-the-job due to the negligence of a third-party or company.

For example, one of our clients was a sub-contractor and he was seriously injured in a fall while constructing an apartment building. His injuries resulted from an employee of a different sub-contractor creating a hidden danger at the job site. In another case, our client worked in a warehouse assembling components. He suffered a crush injury when a driver for another company, who was delivering beverages, ran over his foot.

Three Best Rated: Best Business of 2023In both cases above, the injured workers’ causes of action were not against their own employer. They both had legal cases against those individuals’ respective employers. In cases like this, we can represent you against the third-party and quickly help you analyze the ramifications of receiving treatment through “company doctors” or doctors of your own choosing.

A major factor in any case is whether your employer offers State of Texas workers’ compensation benefits. If they do, they are classified as a “subscriber”. If they do not, they are classified as a “non-subscriber.” Be on alert that some employers purchase insurance coverage they might refer to as workers’ compensation when it’s really not. Contacting the Texas Department of Insurance – Workers’ Compensation division – and learning your employer’s true status is critical.

Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum MembersIf your employer is a non-subscriber and your own company’s negligence or a co-worker’s negligence caused you to be injured, we can also help you. We’ve successfully handled countless cases where non-subscriber employers failed to provide adequate safety, training, gear, improperly modified equipment, knew of a dangerous condition and failed to make it safe or just downright instructed their employee to do something unreasonably dangerous. In these cases, the employer loses some key legal defenses and even just 1% negligence on the employer renders them responsible for 100% of your damages. Think of it as a penalty to the employer for not offering true Texas workers’ compensation insurance benefits to its employees.

We also routinely represent grieving families whose loved ones were killed while working. The law is different here. If your deceased family member was killed by the negligence of their employer or a co-employee and their employer is a subscriber to true Texas Workers’ Compensation insurance, then your family will not likely be barred from seeking a recovery outside of the confines of 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 are required to prove their company’s behavior was grossly negligent. To meet this heightened standard, it’s critical we begin our investigation and retain experts as soon as possible. It’s also critical to involve and work alongside the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) whenever possible.

Workplace injury cases are a minefield. There’s never a fee to give us a call. We’ll discuss the specific facts of your case and determine if we can help you. We’re happy to spend as much time as necessary to properly advise you of your rights and will direct you to a good workers’ compensation attorney if that is what is best suited for your situation.

How Texas Work Injury Claims Work

About Texas Work Injury Claims

Do You Have a Worker’s Comp or Personal Injury Case?

About Work Injury Claims in TexasWorker’ compensation and personal injury claims work differently. In either case, you can hold your employer responsible for work-related injuries.

Did you know Texas is the only state in the entire United States that does not require companies above a predetermined size to carry worker’s compensation?

Sounds crazy, but it’s true!

Here’s some good news though: it’s usually easier to recover financial compensation from companies that do not subscribe to Texas Workers’ Compensation. Many of the legal defenses “subscribers” can utilize are not available to “non-subscribers.” The Texas legal system uses this to try and encourage employers to offer Workers’ Compensation to its employees .

Most Texas employees – about 81% of the workforce – are covered but that still leaves tons of employees who aren’t. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation system in Texas is heavily slanted to protect businesses as opposed to workers.

Here’s how you decide whether you have a worker’s comp or a personal injury claim:

Determine Whether Your Workplace Subscribes to Worker’s Comp

This is harder to do than you might think. That’s because some employers act as if they have workers’ compensation for their employees but, in reality, they only have insurance that slightly resembles workers’ comp. Contact the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation to formally determine whether your employer is a subscriber or non-subscriber to “true” Texas workers’ compensation.

If They Are a Subscriber, You Have a Worker’s Comp Claim

Pretty straightforward here. You can’t file a personal injury claim against your employer if they are a subscriber. Your sole remedy is to file a workers’ compensation claim unless the employer was grossly negligent, and the worker died as a result of the injuries sustained. Remember though that if a third-party – as opposed to your employer – was responsible for your injuries, you can still file a workers’ compensation claim but absolutely retain the right to file a third-party action against the at-fault person or company as well.

The Trouble with Worker’s Comp

What you receive through workers’ compensation is rarely enough to cover the costs of your actual damages. In addition, you’re generally forced to jump through countless hoops. There is one way around this though. If a third party was involved, such as a manufacturer of defective equipment, you can file a personal injury claim against the third-party, while also filing a worker’ comp claim. This would include, for example, if you were injured in a motor vehicle collision caused by a distracted driver while you were operating a motor vehicle in the course and scope of your employment. You can file a workers’ comp claim but absolutely still have the right to file a claim against the negligent motorist.

If Your Employer Doesn’t Have Worker’s Comp

You have a personal injury claim against your employer if they (or one of your co-workers) were a non-subscriber and negligently caused your injuries. This can actually be a better situation for you because your employer loses many legal defenses that would normally be available.

Act Fast – Speed is Key in Work Accident Claims!

The faster you act, the better. Jurors believe that honest people act quickly, so it’s easier to convince them your case is valid when you quickly file your injury claim. Also, the evidence necessary to win your claim can get lost or destroyed the longer you wait. If you’ve been injured at work, act fast to protect your rights. Call Mullen & Mullen today!

  • Our attorneys can assist you if a loved one was killed at work due to the gross negligence of his or her employer, even if the employer subscribes to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act; and

  • Our attorneys can also assist you if your injuries occurred at work or during the course of your employment and your employer or co-worker was negligent if the company is a non-subscriber to benefits.

How can you determine if you may be entitled to file a claim against your current or former employer?

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

Can you file a claim if the company offers Workers’ Compensation benefits and you were injured on the job due to negligence?

Probably not. If your employer offers Workers’ Compensation benefits, they are deemed a “Subscriber” to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. In most instances in which the company is a Subscriber and the company or your co-worker is negligent, your sole legal remedy is to file a Texas Workers’ Compensation claim.

Remember:  You can file a wrongful death case against your loved one’s workplace even if they are a “Subscriber” if they were killed due to the company’s gross negligence.

Also Remember: You can file a wrongful death case against your loved one’s employer even if they are a “Subscriber” if they were killed due to 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 due to 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 offer Workers’ Compensation benefits and you were injured on the job due to negligence?

Probably so. If the company does not offer Workers’ Compensation benefits they are deemed a “Non-Subscriber” to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act and you are generally allowed 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 the company or a co-worker was negligent for causing your injuries. You do not “automatically” win. You must demonstrate your employer or co-worker did something wrong but…

Also Remember: The State of Texas wants companies to provide Workers’ Compensation benefits to employees. Accordingly, if a company is a Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they are punished in the sense that they are denied several common law defenses they would normally be allowed to assert including:

Assumption of the Risk

If the company is a Non-subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they cannot assert that you assumed the risk of injury or death associated with your employment.

Contributory Negligence

If your employer is a Non-subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they cannot assert that you were guilty of comparative negligence. They can, however, argue that you were solely responsible for your injuries.

Fellow Servant

If the company is a Non-subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, they cannot defend the case on the basis that your injury or death was caused by the negligence of a co-worker.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Mullen & Mullen Law Firm has represented hundreds of clients who were injured on the job whose employers didn’t offer Workers’ Compensation coverage. Our attorneys have their own well-trained accident investigators with experience establishing the evidence necessary to develop and win your case. If needed, we won’t shy away from retaining Certified Safety Experts and OSHA Experts to establish liability against your employer. This type of case requires strategy, strategy, and more strategy. Let Mullen & Mullen give you the advantage you need.

Click-to-Call-214-INJURED

Are there situations where it doesn’t matter if the company is a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act?

Yes. For example, 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 was killed at work due to the gross negligence of his or her employer you can pursue a personal injury case against the employer whether or not they are a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.

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

Look at the examples below to better understand how your employer’s classification as a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber may impact your legal rights.

Example 1

The company you work for as a delivery driver is a Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. While you are making a delivery in a company van you get rear-ended by a negligent driver. You are entitled to 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 occurred due to the negligence of a third-party.

Example 2

You work in the warehouse for a company and operate a forklift for a living. The company is a Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. One of your co-workers isn’t paying attention and collides with your forklift which knocks you to the ground and causes you to sustain injuries. You are entitled to file a Workers’ Compensation Claim because your injuries occurred during the course and scope of your employment. You are not entitled to file a personal injury claim because your injuries resulted from the negligence of your employer and/or co-worker.

Example 3

Assume similar facts to the above example BUT the company is a Non-Subscriber to the Texas’ Workers Compensation Act. Since your employer does not offer 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 negligent action(s) of the company itself.

Click-to-Call-214-INJURED

Negligent Third-Parties in Workplace Injury Claims

If your workplace offers Workers’ Compensation benefits can you still file a personal injury action against a negligent third-party that caused you injuries?

Yes. If the company is a Subscriber and offers Workers’ Compensation benefits you can pursue BOTH a Workers’ Compensation claim AND a personal injury claim.

Remember: If the company offers Workers’ Compensation benefits you generally cannot pursue a personal injury claim against your employer or co-worker even if they were negligent. You can, however, pursue a personal injury claim if you were injured by a negligent third-party.

Example 1

Let’s say you work at an assembly plant and your workplace offers Workers’ Compensation benefits. If a co-worker was running through the plant – not watching where he or she was going – and collided with you causing you injuries, you could not file a personal injury action against your employer. If, however, a UPS employee entered the plant to deliver a package and collided with you because he or she was not paying attention you COULD pursue a personal injury claim since the UPS employee is a negligent third-party.

Example 2

Let’s say you work for Best Buy’s Geek Squad for a living and Best Buy offers Workers’ Compensation benefits. While you are driving to an installation, a driver runs a red light and T-Bones your VW Beetle. You CAN file a Workers’ Compensation claim because you were injured in the course and scope of your employment with Best Buy. You can ALSO file a personal injury claim with the at-fault driver’s liability insurance company.

Establishing Liability Against an Employer if Hurt on the Job

If your workplace does not offer Workers’ Compensation benefits and you get hurt at work will you automatically win your Personal injury case?

No. If your employer is a Non-Subscriber you must still demonstrate the employer or a co-worker was negligent and that said negligence caused your injuries. In short, you still have to prove your employer or co-worker did something wrong.

An Example

Your employer is a Non-Subscriber and does not provide Workers’ Compensation benefits. Your workplace provides you with a back brace for lifting heavy items. Your job duties require you to be able to lift at least 50 pounds. While lifting a 15-pound piece of equipment you suffer a freak injury and strain a back muscle. It is unlikely that the employer would be found to be negligent since they provided you with a back brace and 15 pounds was less than the maximum amount of weight you were required to lift.

How do you establish liability on the employer?

Establishing liability against your employer can be done in countless ways. To win your case you will have to show your employer was negligent, i.e. failed to act as a reasonably prudent company would have acted under like and similar circumstances. You need to show your employer did something wrong that caused you to be injured.

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

Remember that injuries can occur in several different ways and that any number of factors could have played a role in causing them. The below examples are far from exhaustive. If you have any doubts whatsoever whether your employer’s conduct (or lack of action) could have a played a part in your injuries, get a free consultation from a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Examples:

Negligent Supervision

Your employer may have liability if your injuries were caused by your workplace negligently supervising your co-workers or even – perhaps – if you were not properly supervised. For example, if you were just starting to learn how to weld and your employer left you alone and unsupervised.

Negligent Training

Your employer may have liability if the workplace negligently trained either you or a co-worker if the lack of proper training caused your injuries.

Not Providing Proper Equipment

If your job requires you to lift 50 pounds regularly and your employer did not provide you with a weight belt you could argue the workplace was negligent because it failed to provide proper safety equipment to its employees.

Not Implementing Proper Policies and Procedures or Not Enforcing Policies and Procedures

Your employer could be liable if they either never put proper policies and procedures in place or if they had policies and procedures in place but failed to enforce them.

Not Warning You of Known Dangers

If your employer knew an activity was dangerous or an area of the premises was dangerous and failed to warn you of the danger(s) the employer could be liable… and in many other ways.

About Claims Involving Death and Gross Negligence

Can your family file a wrongful death action if your loved one was killed due to his or her employer’s gross negligence?

Yes, whether your loved one’s employer is a Subscriber or Non-Subscriber, your family can absolutely bring a personal injury claim against the employer.

Remember: If your loved one was killed at work due to a subscribing employer’s ordinary negligence, the sole remedy will be through the workers’ compensation system.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our lawyers spend the money necessary to retain experts to establish gross negligence so that punitive damages can be recovered.

If your loved one suffered catastrophic injuries due to his or her workplace’s gross negligence are punitive damages potentially recoverable?

No. Punitive damages are only recoverable if the employer was grossly negligent and your loved one’s injuries resulted in death.

Multi-Employer Work Sites

What is a multi-employer work site?

A multi-employer work site is best represented by a construction project. On construction projects multiple companies are likely to have some of their employees at the same work site. For example, a general contractor hires sub-contractors which could include electricians, plumbers, roof experts, flooring experts, etc.

Remember: If you were injured by a co-worker’s negligence and your employer is a Subscriber, the filing of a Workers’ Compensation claim is likely your sole remedy for the injuries you sustained. If, however, you were on the work site as an employee of ABC Electricians and were injured due to the negligence of an employee of NOP Flooring, you would be able 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.

Remember: The general contractor and/or entity that owned the work site could have liability if they failed to properly supervise the work site.

Getting Medical Treatment for Work-related Injuries

If you were hurt at work are you entitled to any necessary medical treatment?

What Types of Car Accident Injuries Get Misdiagnosed? Possibly. If your employer subscribes to benefits you will most likely receive some medical treatment. Keep in mind, however, that most employers have you go to medical providers that will try to rush you back to work. If your employer does not offer Workers’ Compensation benefits they may still attempt to get you to a medical provider the company uses on a regular basis so that they can minimize their exposure.

Remember: Many clinics recommended by employers are recommended for a reason. These clinics are generally pro-employer and usually try and have you return to work after only a limited number of therapy sessions.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our Dallas work accident attorneys have access to an extraordinary network of medical providers who provide services to injured workers. These providers are truly concerned about your health and will not release you back to duty unless it is safe to do so. The types of providers we have relationships with include: medical doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, MRI facilities, neurologists, surgical clinics, hospitals, counselors, and more.

How much is all of this medical treatment going to cost you?

Life can be very challenging when you’re injured at work and medical bills begin to mount. We work with medical providers who agree to delay billing you for their services until the conclusion of your work accident claim. You have no initial out-of-pocket expenses to receive quality care. This allows you to focus on getting better and getting back to work to support your family.

Should you avoid seeing the Workers’ Compensation doctors?

Generally no. Remember that in many cases you may have the right to file both a Workers’ Compensation claim AND a personal injury claim. It is almost always recommended that you make your medical appointments with the “company doctor” as failing to follow your employer’s instructions or missing appointments could be grounds for ending your workers’ compensation claim. You do not want to become ineligible for benefits due to non-compliance.

Qualifying for a Law Loan

Could you be eligible for a law loan to use to pay bills while you are recovering from your injuries?

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

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our attorneys are not aware of any law loan companies that will advance money on a claim if the injured worker is not represented by a lawyer. We have relationships with almost all of the major law loan companies. In addition, some of these law loan companies cap the amount of interest they charge Mullen & Mullen clients.

Recoverable Damages in Work accident Claims

What damages are potentially available to you if your workplace is a Non-Subscriber to the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act?

If your employer does not subscribe to coverage and you are injured at work due to the company or a co-worker’s negligence, you are allowed to recover damages against the company. Potential damages include past and future mental anguish, past and future physical impairment, past and future pain and suffering, loss of earnings in the past, loss of earning capacity in the future, recoupment of past medical expenses, and any necessary future medical expenses.

Remember: If you were injured while working, whether at your office or off-site, and your injuries were caused by a negligent third-party (as opposed to your workplace or co-worker) all of damages above are also available to you.

What damages are potentially available if the employer was grossly negligent and the injured worker died from his or her injuries?

Answer: Punitive damages.

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 that was responsible for your injuries?

Yes, and they likely will. The Workers’ Compensation carrier’s right to recover a portion of your third-party settlement is referred to as the right of subrogation.

Do Workers’ Compensation carriers reduce the amount of their lien or agree to accept less than what they are owed?

Yes, most carriers will reduce their lien at least a little bit. Sometimes they are obligated to do so (for example, if you are represented by an attorney and they do not retain their own legal counsel they will reduce their lien 1/3). Often times they are not required to reduce their lien but will agree to do so in an effort to guarantee the recovery of at least a portion of funds they are entitled to.

How Can Our Attorneys Help?

Our team is well-trained in negotiating down Workers’ Compensation liens so that our clients are left with extra money in their pockets. Our Dallas work accident attorneys interact with all major subrogation recovery organizations on a frequent basis.

Click-to-Call-214-INJURED

What reduction are you generally entitled to if your injuries were caused by a negligent third-party and the workers’ compensation carrier does not hire its own counsel to aid in recovering damages against the at-fault party?

Typically, you are entitled to reduce the workers’ compensation lien amount by 1/3. For example, if the carrier paid $150,000 in indemnity expenses (lost wages) and medical expenses, they would likely agree to reduce their lien amount to $100,000.

What if Your Employer Fires You After Being Injured on the Job?

Fired with eerily short notice after you got injured at work? Here’s what to do if you suspect your employer of firing you for getting injured at work.

It’s a nightmare scenario: you get hurt on the job. Then mysteriously, you get fired not long after the injury.

You should not be terminated due to an on-the-job injury. Your employer would have to be insane to tell you that was the reason for your termination as that would constitute a “retaliatory discharge.” Retaliatory discharges get companies sued.

You can’t be fired for an on-the-job injury. Your workplace would have to be insane for telling you that’s the reason for your termination. This is often referred to as “retaliatory discharge.” That’s because it would be easy to sue them if they said that.

It’s easy, however, for your employer to get around that. They could say you’re not meeting performance expectations or claim the company is experiencing financial difficulties. If they don’t explicitly fire you for one of the legally protected reasons, they can fire you if you are an “at-will” employee.

A good personal injury attorney can assist you in locating an employment law attorney if you were the victim of a retaliatory discharge.

Our Dallas work injury attorneys charge nothing to discuss the facts of your case. You only pay when we win. The worst thing that can happen is you may find out you don’t have a claim.

We also handle Texas Oilfield / Offshore and Electrocution Work accident injuries.
