Insurance Bad Faith
In any contractual agreement, each party has a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the other. While many people do not think of them as contracts, an insurance policy is a 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 terms of the policy do not cover a particular type of loss. In others, they may attempt to settle your claim for less than it is worth or fail to defend you against a particular claim.

No fees up front. I only get paid if you do.
At The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm, LLC, I dedicate my entire Colorado personal injury practice to resolving complex auto accident claims. I know how insurance companies operate. I went to work as an adjuster after law school just so I could learn their game from the inside. I have a complete understanding of the protections provided by your insurance policy, and I know what steps to take when your insurance company unfairly denies you access to them.
I have a well-earned reputation for holding insurance companies accountable to the terms of their policies and for getting policyholders the benefits they are entitled to receive under those terms. It is always my goal to negotiate a fair settlement without putting you through a long and difficult trial. However, I will not hesitate to take your case to court in order to ensure that the insurance company is held to its contract with you.

Depending on the circumstances, policyholders may be entitled to receive additional damages and compensation for their attorney fees in these cases. I will review your case to determine if there is an argument to be made for these types of damages.
