Being involved in an automobile accident is a harrowing experience. Finding out that the person who slammed into you was uninsured or underinsured can make the entire situation seem worse. When you are hit by a driver who doesn’t have insurance at all or didn’t have enough insurance to cover your bills, you will have to seek compensation with the help of an accident attorney. We know that having to deal with this type of situation is hard, especially when you are dealing with injuries.
In Colorado, motorists are required to have a minimum amount of insurance. That minimum is $25,000 per person for bodily injury and $50,000 per accident. Sadly, some motorists don’t carry insurance that meets those minimums. That can make it difficult for you to get the compensation you deserve, but we can help you with that.
If you opted to have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage as part of your auto insurance policy, you might be able to get compensation for the damages of the accident through your own insurance. If you signed the waiver for UIM coverage and don’t have it as part of your policy, you won’t be able to use that benefit.
We can investigate your case and help you learn your options for seeking compensation for your damages. We can work to pursue the compensation that you deserve for your injuries. The first thing you must do after the accident is seek medical care. Once you have done that, you can get to work on your claim for compensation. We can help you from start to finish.
