Longmont Uninsured Motorist Attorney
How To Get Compensated When You’re Hit by an Uninsured Motorist
In Colorado, all drivers are required to hold auto liability insurance. Still, some drive without coverage, and it can prove to be a complicated matter when an accident occurs. Even if a driver has basic insurance coverage as required by law, it might not be enough to cover expenses for serious injuries and property damage.
Typically, when you’re involved in an uninsured motorist accident, you’ll file a claim with your own insurance company, which will compensate you based on your policy’s uninsured/underinsured motorist protection. Colorado law requires that insurance companies offer this protection, and unless you specifically requested to have it removed from your policy, you likely have this coverage. Accidents involving hit-and-run drivers are also covered.
Still, your insurer may not pay the full amount you need to cover your expenses. Insurance companies profit by limiting claim payouts and may offer to settle your claim, leaving you with less than fair compensation. Your insurance company may also deny your claim or delay payment.
Our Longmont attorneys have expertise in handling cases involving uninsured motorists and can provide you with guidance and help you understand your claim.

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.
