Coverage Litigation
DEDMAN LAW, PLLC represents corporate policyholders involved in disputes with their insurance companies, provides coverage advice to plaintiffs and their counsel in complex litigation to identify and exhaust all avenues and determine how to best maximize an insurance recovery.  Our attorneys also provide risk management consultation in connection with contractual risk transfer issues, risk-assessment, and risk-mitigation. Our firm has handled a wide variety of first-party and third-party insurance claims in state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate court levels. We are committed to provide practical and pragmatic solutions to complex insurance coverage questions.  We are constantly on the lookout for new and emerging coverage issues to identify and assess the changing tides of insurance law to ensure our clients are in compliance with the same.

Coverage Consulting
DEDMAN LAW, PLLC is a resource for prominent Texas plaintiff lawyers who need an expert opinion regarding complex coverage issues and analysis. Attorneys rely on us to provide guidance regarding whether a lawsuit will trigger insurance coverage. An attorney without expertise in insurance coverage should seek a second opinion in the early stages of litigation to avoid forfeiting coverage that is available for the damages they are pursuing. DEDMAN LAW, PLLC consults in multiple ways, often behind the scenes by providing coverage analysis and briefing, we are always prepared appear as lead or co-counsel in coverage cases and to collaborate on complex coverage trial issues. 

Insurance Denials
Unfortunately, insurance companies have a financial incentive to deny claims, and they often deny perfectly valid claims. The insurance companies know that most individual and small business policyholders will feel too overwhelmed to fight a denied claim. In many cases, people do not even know where to turn for help. DEDMAN LAW, PLLC is committed to making a positive difference for clients who have been denied covered insurance claims. We have achieved outstanding results for clients who were initially denied coverage by their carrier or who were told by others it would take months and even years to resolve their claim and may have to sue their insurance carrier.  We work with clients to prove up coverage and to persuade insurance carriers to reconsider their interpretation of the policy language, frequently resulting in reversal of the initial denial, and frequently within only a matter of months after we draft the first demand letter on your behalf.

Insurance Recovery
DEDMAN LAW, PLLC takes a proactive approach to helping clients with their insurance claims and litigation. In addition to handling insurance denial claims, we also assist clients throughout the entire claim process. We are experienced with a wide variety of claims.  From making a claim, reviewing the policy language, writing demand letters, filing pleadings, attending mediation, and trial, we have the experience to handle all matters from inception to resolution. We have been called upon to assess coverage third-party liability, employee embezzlement, molestation, assault & battery, death or severe injuries, professional losses, business interruption, ERISA, mechanical breakdowns and many other losses. DEDMAN LAW, PLLC knows how to effectively demonstrate proof of loss and effectively gather other necessary documentation that is critical to the success of insurance claims.
