Dean represented a man who was permanently injured when by a drunk driver who was over-served at ritzy Houston nightclub that provided an obscene and unlawful amount of alcohol to the drunk driver before giving him his keys and turning him loose on the streets of Houston.

As a community, we all have a responsibility to other members of our community. After all, a shared responsibility for one another’s health and well-being is the fabric which binds together any healthy community. And this expectation of responsibility and accountability does not just extend to individuals. It extends, as well, to companies, and even nightclubs that don’t follow the law. Dean was able to achieve a settlement that will provide for the future medical care needs of his client.

Dean represented an aircraft maintenance worker who was struck by lightning while refueling an American Airlines plane during a thunderstorm. The man suffered a serious brain injury as the result of the lighting strike. Dean successfully resolved the case against American Airlines because it did not close the tarmac as it should have during the thunderstorm.

Medical Malpractice Cases

Dean routinely represents victims of medical malpractice of doctors, nurses, hospitals, dentists, and other health care providers. In a more recent case, Dean represented the family of a young woman who presented to a hospital to give birth to her third child. The woman suffered from a known condition associated with pregnancy called pre-eclampsia. Unfortunately, her health care providers failed to properly diagnose, monitor, and provide appropriate treatment to prevent pre-eclampsia from progressing to eclampsia – an acute and life-threatening condition characterized by severe seizures. Because the nurses failed to tell her doctor that she developed signs and symptoms of eclampsia, the hospital sent her home where she had severe seizures and is not permanently and irreversibly brain damaged, incapable of taking care of herself or meaningfully interacting with her family or environment.

Dean and the team took on the hospital and were able to achieve a settlement for the family that, although it will not restore her, brings some solace and support for her family. Now, she will get all the health care she needs and her family will have the support they need to give her the best quality of life possible.
