Broomfield Uninsured Motorist Attorney
We Help You Get Compensated
Despite laws that require all Colorado drivers to have auto liability insurance (at a minimum) there are still those who get behind the wheel without coverage. And when an accident occurs involving an uninsured driver, questions about how medical bills and other losses will be covered come into play. Moreover, even if a driver has the basic coverage required by law, it might fall short of covering expenses for serious injuries and property damage.
You do have options that’ll help you get compensated, including filing a claim with your own insurance company. Colorado law requires that insurance companies offer uninsured/underinsured motorist protection. Unless you specifically requested not to have this protection, you likely have this coverage. Accidents involving hit-and-run drivers are also covered under uninsured motorist policies.
However, it’s important to note that your insurer may not pay the full amount, choosing instead to pay a limited amount to settle your claim. That’s because insurance companies profit by limiting claim payouts. As a result, you might be pressured to take a settlement and end up with less than you should receive. Your insurance company may also deny your claim or delay payment.
It’s essential to understand your claim and how much it’s worth. Our Broomfield attorneys have expertise in handling cases involving uninsured motorists and can provide you with guidance.

I would like to give a big thank you to Matthew Crowther and his paralegal, Nicolas Allen, for doing a great job on my case. They settled for more than I expected and were always available when I had questions. I would highly recommend them and would go back to them if needed. Thank you again.
