Lose your loved one because of someone else’s negligence?
Not only is this the most devastating emotional event that could happen which also completely turns your world upside down, but many other problems have arisen too.
You have a big mess of medical bills to deal with. Your loved one’s lost income makes it harder to make ends meet. You’ve lost their companionship and miss help around the house and all sorts of little things you used to enjoy with them. And you must pay for their funeral expenses.
Money can’t replace your loved one. But it can ease your stress and help you cope with all the financial challenges now facing you.
And you have another big problem. One you probably don’t even realize.
That lies in finding a wrongful death attorney in Frisco who cares enough to get you the fair compensation you deserve for your loved one’s wrongful death.
Because not all wrongful death lawyers in the Frisco area can recover full compensation.
The firms you see advertising on TV all the time slam you through their process as fast as possible to maximize their dollars per hour.
The large law firms let an experienced senior lawyer supervise paralegals and junior lawyers, who do all the real work on your claim.
Both types can win you money. And sometimes, even a lot of money. But in many cases, they leave tens of thousands of dollars on the table because they don’t fully commit to winning you the most possible.
Fortunately, you have a third option. And that lies in Mullen & Mullen’s wrongful death attorneys.
Unlike large firms, or the ones you see advertising a lot, our small but highly experienced team of three wrongful death lawyers do all the real work on your claim themselves.
Each has more than a decade of experience. And we’ve been recognized by leading legal publications such as Thomson-Reuters’ Super Lawyers, The Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Top Choice Awards, Forbes, Newsweek, and others.
Because a seasoned attorney with more than a decade of experience does all the real work on your claim, you have the best opportunity to win the most money possible for your loved one’s wrongful death.
Plus, clients just plain love us. Google “Mullen & Mullen’s Reviews” to read hundreds of nearly perfect client reviews.
And since you only pay a percentage of your case’s final settlement value when you win, you can easily afford Mullen & Mullen.
Special Bonuses You Get with Mullen & Mullen
- Pay a discounted case fee of just 29% (versus our regular 33.3%). If your case settles without having to go to court, and about 90% of ours do, you pay just a 29% case fee. That could easily be thousands more in your pocket!
- Lower costs to create your case and the savings get passed on to you. Most law firms hire a private investigator by contract. At Mullen & Mullen, we employ our own in-house private investigator. It’s a lot more cost-effective to employ a private investigator, and we pass the savings on to you. Plus, we’ve worked with Mike Foster for more than a decade. He knows how to ask all the right questions and gather the most compelling evidence to give you the most convincing case possible.

How Do Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Based in Frisco Prove Your Claim?
Texas law sets forth strict requirements on exactly what you must show to win a wrongful death claim.
That’s why it’s important to entrust your claim to the best wrongful death lawyer you can find. You don’t want just any firm handling the claim because they could lose it altogether or fail to recover for you the full compensation you should get.
The burden of proof also lies on you. That’s the opposite of criminal defense cases, where the burden of proof lies on the prosecutor. You’re the victim. And you must prove your case too.
To win your claim, you must show:
- The defendant owed your loved one a duty of care
- They were negligent in some way
- That negligence led to your loved one’s death
- Your loved one’s death resulted in losses
Simple to explain. Difficult to prove.
Wrongful deaths happen for many reasons. People acting in different capacities have varying responsibilities to other people. Examples include:
- Drivers must operate their cars in reasonably safe ways to protect other drivers
- A doctor must provide service in a manner another reasonable doctor would
- Property owners must keep their property free from dangerous conditions to prevent injuries to visitors
- Manufacturers must produce reasonably safe goods free from defects
Proving wrongful death can be extremely complicated. Take the case of a car accident. Someone was driving distracted in bad weather conditions.
Did their distracted driving cause your loved one’s wrongful death? Or did the bad weather? Both?
You’ll need to gather evidence to prove the driver was at fault. That could include witness testimony or examining cell phone records to prove phone use at the time of the accident.
You may even need to hire an accident reconstruction expert witness to prove the claim.
It all depends on the evidence you have available.
What Damages Can Our Wrongful Death Lawyers in Frisco Recover for You?
The damages you can recover for your loved one’s injuries depend largely on the skill of your wrongful death lawyer. It’s yet another reason why you should hire the best one you can find.
Basically, recoverable damages fall into two broad categories:
- Damages accrued between the time of the negligent act leading to the deceased person’s death and the actual time of death of that person
- Damages the next of kin experiences after the deceased person’s death
Damages accrued prior to death can include compensation for medical bills, lost income, your deceased loved one’s pain and suffering, and funeral expenses.
The next of kin can generally recover compensation for the value of money the deceased would have earned while still alive. In Texas, you can also recover damages for “loss of consortium,” which refers to the ways in which your loved one would normally have participated in your relationship while alive.
In rare cases, you may be able to recover “punitive damages.” However, these damages are not intended to compensate you for your loss.
Instead, they’re intended to punish the defendant for a “willful act or omission or gross negligence.”
The goal is also to deter others from engaging in similar behavior in the future.
Who Can Recover Damages for a Wrongful Death?
Not everyone can get compensation for your loved one’s death. Generally, Texas law only allows a surviving spouse, children, or parents to recover compensation.
However, one or more of such individuals acting on behalf of all may recover compensation too.
If none of these parties file a wrongful death claim within three months of the wrongful death itself, then the executor of the deceased person’s estate can file such a claim instead.
However, surviving family members can prevent the executor from doing so if they specifically request it.
