Loveland Uninsured Motorist Attorney
What Happens if I’m Hit by an Uninsured Motorist?
Despite Colorado’s law that requires all drivers to hold auto liability insurance, there are still those that get behind the wheel without it. And when you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, one of the first questions is how medical bills and other losses will be covered. Even if a driver has basic liability coverage, it might fall short of covering expenses for accidents that result in serious injuries or property damage.
Typically, you’ll file a claim with your own insurance company, and the uninsured/underinsured motorist protection in your policy will provide you with coverage. However, your insurer may offer to settle your claim for less than what you need to cover expenses. That’s because insurance companies profit by limiting claim payouts. As a result, you may be pressured to take the settlement, or your insurance company may deny your claim or delay payment.
Don’t get less than fair compensation. Our Loveland 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.
