Uninsured Motorists Accident Lawyer

Carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage in Colorado is the best thing you can do to protect you and your family, and to ensure the necessary resources will be available in the unfortunate event that you are involved in a serious motor-vehicle collision.  

It’s important to understand that your auto insurance policy is primarily designed to protect other motorists in the event you are involved in a collision for which you are found responsible. While uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) benefits are optional under Colorado insurance law, this coverage protects you and your family in the event you are involved in a collision with an at-fault driver who does not have insurance or lacks sufficient coverage to adequately compensate you for damages.  

Mandatory minimum insurance coverage requires just $25,000 bodily injury coverage. Such coverage is completely inadequate for all but minor collisions. Experienced Denver car accident attorneys urge you carry substantially more coverage – $100,000 bodily injury coverage per person/$200,000 per collision, can be purchased for a modest increase in premiums and UM/UIM coverage can be purchased in like amounts.  

UM/UIM Injury Claims in Colorado

Policies may also be “stacked” under Colorado law, meaning the limits can be combined on one or more policies in the household, providing additional protection.  

Making sure you and your family are properly covered can provide great peace of mind and an additional avenue of recovery should you be involved in a serious motor-vehicle collision – regardless of the insurance coverage or status of the at-fault driver. 

However, because these claims proceed against your own insurance carrier, you will not be treated as a customer. You will be treated as any other claimant. Statements you make to your insurance adjuster, investigators, and other parties, will be used to limit your ability to collect damages.
