Colorado Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Accident Cases
Have you been hit by an uninsured driver in Colorado? Being in an automobile accident can be painful, confusing, and upsetting. It can become even more complicated when the other driver involved does not have insurance. In Colorado, motor vehicle accident laws utilize a tort, or "at-fault" system. This requires the person responsible for the accident to cover the victim's medical expenses, as well as any other expenses brought about by lost wages, or pain and suffering. In the event that the person responsible is uninsured and unable to pay for those expenses, you may be able to file a liability claim on your own insurance policy called a First-Party claim. This may allow you to recover compensation for the damages you've suffered. Of course, this situation can get unpleasant, and your own insurance company may prefer not to pay money for this accident, if they can help it. But, if you have this coverage, than it is their responsibility to help you when you file a claim. A seasoned Denver personal injury attorney may be able to help you in filing such a personal injury claim and representing your best interests so that you get the settlement you need to cover the costs incurred in your accident. That is, after all, why you pay for insurance in the first place. Watch this informative video on dealing with an uninsured motorist claim in Denver.
Motor Vehicle Accidents Cause Costly Injuries
When you are in a car accident, the most likely result is that you come away with injuries. They can be moderate to severe, and sometimes even result in the death of a loved one. It is difficult to think about where the money will come from when such events occur, because your main concern will be healing, or helping your family through this difficult and painful time. Unfortunately, money can be a problem in these situations, and it is unfair for you to have to shoulder the cost of a car accident that you did not cause. Don't let financial worry get you down, because you can call a car accident lawyer for your uninsured motorist personal injury case. We can help you file a claim with your own insurance company, to cover the medical expenses and property damage that result from the auto accident. It is their responsibility to pay these expenses when you have the coverage, and they will seek recompense afterward from the responsible party if possible.
