Paul has successfully represented Colorado clients in a wide variety of auto accident claims, including:
Car Accident Law
Getting seriously hurt in a car accident can change your life. If another driver’s carelessness caused your injuries, you deserve full payment for medical bills and other losses from the crash.
Dealing with personal injury cases is tricky. Insurance companies often try hard not to pay what they owe. If you or a family member got hurt or died in a car crash due to another driver’s mistake, it’s crucial to have a skilled lawyer on your side from the beginning. Start by calling Paul Wilkinson, a top-rated car accident lawyer in Denver.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims
UM/UIM coverage helps pay the difference between what the at-fault driver’s insurance covers and your actual accident costs. In Colorado, every car insurance policy must offer this coverage. You can only skip it if you say no in writing. You likely have it if you didn’t write that you don’t want UM/UIM.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
Obtaining fair compensation in these cases can be challenging, and the quality of your legal representation can directly impact the quality of your results. If you were hit by a car, you must immediately speak with a reliable attorney. Even if you were jaywalking, which is technically a violation of the law, you still likely have a claim for damages. Get a second opinion from one of Denver’s best personal injury attorneys to see if you have a valid case.
Head, Neck, and Back Injuries
Head, neck, and back injuries can be highly debilitating and often leave victims facing a lifetime of hardship. Sadly, injuries that have the greatest potential to cause lifelong suffering are frequently some of the most difficult to get insurance companies to take seriously in the event of an accident claim.
Insurance companies are notorious for dismissing head and brain injuries as little more than a bump on the head and an opportunistic money grab. If you or a loved one has suffered a head or brain injury in an auto accident, having a reliable legal team behind you can help ensure you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve under Colorado law.
Insurance Bad Faith
In any contractual agreement, each party has a duty of good faith and fair dealing with the other. An insurance policy is a type of contract between you and the insurance company. The insurance company has a duty to treat you fairly under the terms of the policy and can be subject to legal action if it fails to do so.
Often referred to as insurance bad faith, there can be many different ways that insurance companies can breach the terms of their policies. In some cases, they will claim that the policy terms do not cover a particular type of loss. Others may attempt to settle your claim for less than it is worth or fail to defend you against a specific claim.
If a person has died due to the negligence of another person, company, or entity, surviving family members have the right to seek compensation for their losses. This is a challenging and emotional time, and the assistance of an experienced lawyer can be precious.
The Colorado Wrongful Death Act allows for lawsuits on behalf of certain relatives. The statute gives you and your children the right to pursue damages for the losses you have experienced due to your loved one’s death. It may also be possible for your loved one’s parents and others who were economically dependent on him or her to join you in the wrongful death action. In this lawsuit, the beneficiaries recover damages they have incurred due to losing their loved one, such as loss of benefits, future income, and companionship.
No fees up front. We only get paid if you win your case.
