Our Approach To Settlements

It is difficult to anticipate the true cost of your injury or medical condition. It is even more difficult to anticipate what income you will need to allow you to support yourself and your family.

Insurers will try to convince you to settle for an amount of their choosing. It may even sound reasonable, particularly if you were seriously injured. A large paycheck is tempting for anyone. Unfortunately, too often we see unrepresented people and others accept settlements without fully grasping the amount of money they'll need to pay for their medical costs, overcome wage loss and continue living their lives with some amount of financial security.

For example:

  • Does the settlement offer take into account medical expenses you will need in the future, or does it just compensate you for previous medical bills?
  • Are you going to receive steady income through an annuity, or are you going to get one lump sum that you must live on for a long time, perhaps the rest of your life?
  • Are you being compensated for pain and suffering?

At Dell & Dean, PLLC, our personal injury lawyers have been working hard for a long time to get our clients the money they need. We regularly hear from previous clients who thank us for taking the time to explain what amount is appropriate and necessary in their case.

Because our attorneys have been practicing for decades, we understand the financial help our clients need. And our focus on our clients' well-being means we never pressure you to settle for an amount that doesn't meet your needs. We go after all of the money you need.

We Are A Trial Law Firm

There are many reasons to avoid trial. It can be lengthy and complex. It can cost money. And there are no guaranteed outcomes.

These are not reasons to avoid trial when insurers are not offering fair compensation. At Dell & Dean, PLLC, we are a trial law firm for a reason — we know how to present your case to a jury. We know how to clearly and effectively explain who was at fault, the damages those actions caused and why our clients deserve compensation.

We are confident in our ability in the courtroom. This confidence, and history of success, means we can negotiate aggressively on your behalf. We regularly go to trial when it is in the best interests of our clients, and we get results.
