About Derek Wilson
Knowledgeable || Personable || Approachable
Bad things happen to good people and I believe in healing the hurt.
I’m a personal injury lawyer in Hamilton and I’ve practiced on both sides of personal injury law which is why, today, I focus on helping those who have been injured or denied an insurance claim.
I started my career in 1995. I articled with Stanley M. Tick & Associates in Hamilton, where we knew our clients and their families. I often worked on personal injury cases because I was good at it and it made a difference in people’s lives.
After earning my Master of Laws degree (with merit) from the London School of Economics in 1997, I became a partner at a boutique Toronto defense firm that dealt exclusively in insurance defense litigation. Now I was on the other side and this experience taught me how large insurance companies operate. I learnt first-hand what it takes to win a personal injury case or reverse an insurance denial.
By 2009, I’d had enough, and I was anxious to return to my roots, representing individuals from Hamilton and the surrounding area who had been hurt in an accident or denied an insurance claim. I worked at Malhotra, Stayshyn & Wilson until 2013 when I opened Derek Wilson Personal Injury Law.
I’m proud of the firm we’ve built. We’re not the biggest firm out there because we don’t want to be. When you’re going through a hard time, it’s important to be surrounded by friends, family and people who have your best interests at heart. That’s tough to find in a 300+ lawyer law firm that barely remembers your name.
At Derek Wilson Personal Injury Law, we’re honest, we care about our clients, we know their names, and we fight for them.
When I’m not working on behalf of my clients in the office, I’m usually thinking about their cases while skiing in Collingwood. Like many of my clients, I have a young family. Every day they remind me of why it’s so important to help my clients get their lives back on track.
