Over the years, Dean has represented multiple people catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases arising out of 18-wheeler wrecks across the country. In 2006, Dean represented the families of 10 people that were killed when an unqualified truck driver crossed the median of U.S. Highway 75 and plowed his 18-wheeler into a SUV and a pickup truck. The truck driver was sentenced to 10 years in prison last year after pleading guilty to 10 counts of manslaughter. At the time, it was the largest vehicular manslaughter case in Texas.
