D’Shawn S.

" Attorney Wagner has handled my workers's compensation case since it began in 1995. He put me at ease from my first visit, all the way to today. I never had to worry about what would happen at a hearing because he always comes prepared, and is always professional. Dean really does care about all his clients and it shows. He answered all my questions, and his staff is wonderful as well, very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Attorney Wagner."

Dean WagnerWe have represented injured and disabled people since 1990. We know that being injured or disabled takes its toll on you physically, financially and emotionally. It also has a real effect on your family. We treat our clients like we want to be treated – with respect and understanding. We listen. We respond. We aggressively take action. We will be your voice.



Since 1990, the lawyers and paralegals at Dean R. Wagner Co., L.P.A. have helped thousands of injured disabled clients get the benefits they need and move forward on the road to recovery.


The primary focus of our practice is work injury and disability law. Our attorneys and staff are experienced. Most of us have spent our entire careers helping injured or disabled people get the benefits that they need. We represent people, not companies. Because we only represent the injured or disabled, we can focus our practice on aggressively pursuing the compensation and medical coverage that you need. Put that experience and knowledge to work for you.


The workers' compensation and disability laws are complex, and those benefit systems are difficult to navigate alone. We pride ourselves in providing one on one service and we will custom tailor our representation to your individual needs. We have a complete team of attorneys, paralegals and support staff who all work together toward the success of your claim for benefits. We accept cases on a contingency fee which means that we don’t get paid unless you get paid. That motivates us to keep in regular communication with you. We make every effort to reply to calls or emails within 24 hours. We keep you “in the loop” when important events are coming up in your claim so that you understand the process, prepare, and make the best decisions at every step of the claim process. For us, a well informed client is a happy client. It helps us to help you to spend less time worrying and more time focusing on your recovery. Let our experienced lawyers, paralegals, and support staff get to work to help you.

Because we are experienced, we have the knowledge to educate you on what benefits are available to you and your family and how you can maximize all of them as your medical condition evolves. We treat you with compassion and respect. We answer your questions. We listen. Our commitment to you is daily service. Not every client is the same. Not every injury is the same. That requires representation that is customized to you, your claim and what you need.


Being injured or disabled can be hard on a person, not only physically but also emotionally. If can cause financial hardship and can strain family relationships as well as your relationship with your employer. Because The Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability Systems can be so complex, we use a team approach to connect you with what you need. We have developed a network of connections with some of the best doctors in the area to provide medical, chiropractic, orthopedic or psychological care that you need. Having a good doctor is very important but it’s also important to have a doctor who can navigate workers compensation or Medicare coverage and how to get approvals of treatment. Your doctor and your lawyer need to work together. We can connect you to doctors that we work well with to help your claim and recovery move along quickly. If your doctors determine that you can return to work, we can connect you to expert vocational rehabilitation counselors who will guide you back to work and direct you to any retraining and education resources that are available. We can connect you to insurance policy or long term disability representation. Employers don’t always keep your employee benefits available when you are unable to work. We can refer you to specialists who can help with retaliation/wrongful termination; FMLA issues and health insurance continuation/coverage questions. If you are off work long term, we can connect you to help with social security disability representation as well as long term disability insurance policy help. Workers Comp and disability claims are complex. Let us help to connect you to what you need for medical treatment, compensation benefits, return to work services and long term disability benefits.
