Experienced Perspective on Insurance Cases
Litigating cases that might trigger insurance coverage can be like a game of dominoes. The way an attorney approaches a case might cause other dominoes to fall, triggering a whole host of other unintended issues.
Attorney Linda Dedman's experience as outside counsel in the insurance industry enables her to avoid this pitfall and has garnered the attention of her peers. Attorneys who are not sure if a lawsuit will trigger insurance coverage value Ms. Dedman's sound advice and direction.
A Valuable Resource
Helping other lawyers unravel the coverage details of a case is a skill that Linda Dedman brought with her when she opened our firm many years ago. Before that, she served as outside legal counsel for large insurance companies for many years.
At Dedman Law, PLLC, we are familiar with the strategies used by major insurance companies to avoid paying claims and full benefits, including:
- Canceling your policy and coverage, often citing a "misrepresentation" in the insurance application
- Denying that your condition meets the requirements to be considered a disability
- Citing vague exclusions
- Making extraordinary demands for tax returns, records or information while delaying action on your claim

Consulting with other lawyers is different from recovering damages from insurance companies. We help other lawyers with strategies to use when litigating a case that might trigger one or both parties' insurance coverage. So for some matters we are not directly trying to get compensation for a client; rather, we act as a consultant for other attorneys to help them determine if there is potential insurance coverage for damages they are pursuing.
