Head & Brain Injury Attorney
Injuries to the head and brain can be extremely debilitating and often leave victims with a lifetime of hardship. Unfortunately, head and brain injuries are on the rise. From 2006 to 2014, the number of traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related ER visits, hospitalizations, and deaths increased by 53%.
Head and brain injuries are some of the most likely to cause lifelong suffering. They can affect every aspect of your life and can cause pain, confusion, and even affect your personality. Unfortunately, head and brain injuries are also among the most difficult to get insurance companies to take seriously in 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 and experienced legal team behind you can help to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve under Colorado law.

NO FEES UPFRONT. I ONLY GET PAID IF YOU DO.
I am attorney Paul Wilkinson. For nearly 20 years, I have dedicated my career to protecting the rights of personal injury accident victims throughout the Denver metro area and across the Front Range region. I have successfully represented clients in a wide variety of cases involving head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
Among the many cases I’ve represented, I won a $1.4 million verdict for a client who suffered severe brain injuries after being hit by an RTD short bus.
Before I started my law practice, I worked as an insurance adjuster for three years. I know how insurance companies evaluate head and brain injury cases. I know the rationale they use to minimize their financial exposure when they attempt to negotiate settlements that serve nobody’s interests but their own. When you choose my firm to handle your injury claim, I will demand a fair settlement or take the matter to court. It’s that simple.
All the experienced attorneys at our firm are familiar with the type of care that these injuries typically require. We understand that these injuries are mostly internal and require unique and specific evidence to prove their validity. We will work tirelessly to secure compensation for all of your current and future needs.

Potential Sources of Compensation for Head and Brain Injuries
Head and brain injuries can have a significant and debilitating impact on your daily life. You may find yourself confused or disoriented, which may make it difficult to work or even socialize. If you have received a head or brain injury due to an accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Head and brain injuries are common following a car accident or an accidental slip or trip and fall. According to the CDC, “Falls and motor vehicle crashes were the first and second leading causes of all TBI-related hospitalizations (52% and 20%, respectively).”
At the Paul Wilkinson Law Firm, we will look into all potential sources of compensation following an accident that resulted in a head or brain injury. Some of the most prominent sources of compensation include:
- Loss of wages: When you experience a brain injury, it can change everything. You may find it hard to focus, and you may have an increased need for sleep. You may also be confused and have trouble retaining information. Additionally, you may experience frequent headaches and be sensitive to light and sound. All of these factors can make it a challenge to continue working the way you previously did. The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm will work to understand the nature of your injuries and how they’re affecting your productivity. We will look at lost, present, and future wages as potential sources of compensation.
- Medical Expenses: Medical bills can pile up quickly following an accident. They may include ambulance costs, hospital stays, CAT scans, and various forms of rehabilitation. The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm can not only look into your medical expenses as a potential source of compensation but can also set you up with medical professionals to help you on your road to recovery.
- Pain and Suffering: You may also be entitled to pain and suffering following a head or brain injury. We will look at how your quality of life has been affected following your accident and determine if this is a source of compensation in your unique case.
