Compensation for a motor vehicle accident in Denver or any surrounding city or town in Colorado rarely comes out of the negligent driver’s pocket. Instead, it comes from the negligent driver’s insurance company. But what happens if the negligent driver had no insurance coverage, or the coverage is insufficient to cover everything it needs to cover? Does the victim simply have to struggle without compensation? Not necessarily. At the law office of D. Chadwick Calvert, LLC, our injury accident attorneys know how to find opportunities to get you compensation, no matter what obstacles stand in our way. We guarantee satisfaction.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents in Colorado
In Colorado, the law requires the driver to have a minimum of $25,000 worth of insurance coverage. There are two problems with this law. The first is that, if a motor vehicle accident results in serious injuries, $25,000 does not go very far. The second is that there are plenty of drivers on Colorado’s roads who have no problem breaking this law.
Thankfully, drivers are offered uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage through their own insurance company. This is coverage that people can buy, which will help them in case they are hit and hurt by an uninsured or underinsured driver. Do you have this coverage? You might have it and not even be aware that you have it. We will find out.
Multiple Insurance Coverage Issues
In these cases, it is important to have an attorney experienced in handling multiple insurance coverage issues. We can manage claims with the negligent driver’s insurance company while also managing claims with your own insurance companies, claims that can often result in insurance disputes. We know how to resolve them to do what is best for you.
