Practice Areas

Dennis M. Janssen, P.A. provide a wide range of services to individuals and businesses in a variety of industries. We strive to meet each client's specific needs in planning for the future and achieving their goals in an ever-changing financial and regulatory environment. Our professional services include, but are not limited to:

Car Accidents

It is nearly impossible to drive a lifetime without being involved in a car accident. Insurance companies and their adjusters deal with thousands of auto collisions every year. Their motivation is to make a profit and keep costs down. That means it is not in the insurance company's best interests to help you. You should make sure you are adequately and responsibly represented before negotiating any claim with the insurance company.

It is important when involved in a car collision to make sure a police report is filed, not to give any recorded or written statements to an insurance adjuster, and not to sign anything, especially a medical authorization without first consulting a lawyer. The sooner you seek legal representation, the sooner your rights and your claim will be adequately protected.

Slip and Fall

A business or property owner bears the responsibility to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance of their property, as well as to notify or warn visitors to the property of any hazards that exist and might cause a slip, trip or fall.

A business or property owner is liable for a 'slip and fall' accident when they are negligent in failing to reasonably maintain their property or in properly warning visitors of latent dangers.

Determining liability in a 'slip and fall' accident can be difficult, involving many contributing factors. Dennis Janssen & Associates will assure your rights are protected.


Negotiated settlements of claims arising from medical negligence frequently involve the issue of confidentiality between the parties. In cases where a defendant physician, facility or other health care provider demands a confidentiality provision as part of a settlement agreement, plaintiff's medical malpractice lawyer must consider several factors prior to agreeing to include confidentiality as a material term of a release and settlement agreement.

The first and most obvious consideration is the client's intent and objective in bringing the action in the first place. A client that is dealing with their own, or a family member's loss, as a result of a medical error experiences a wide array of emotions in deciding whether to pursue a claim. A frequently stated motivating factor is the desire to make sure this doesn't happen to someone else. As noble a cause as this may seem, it does not square with the remedies available in most jurisdictions, or the purpose of the civil trial system. The civil litigant is entitled to fair compensation for their injuries, and that remedy is the 'justice' available.

Personal Injury

Personal injuries not only cause physical pain, but also cause emotional and financial hardship through loss of work, medical bills and stress placed upon individuals and families. Whether caused by an automobile accident, a defective product, or other negligent, careless or reckless conduct, injuries alter lives forever. Dealing with insurance companies and their vast resources can be frustrating and intimidating to many individuals. Despite what insurance adjusters may tell you, insurance companies do not represent the interests of the injured party. We will aggressively fight for you to obtain a settlement or trial verdict that fairly reflects all your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, emotional stress, pain and suffering, and other damages.
