Colorado Uninsured Motorist Lawyer
What Happens if You Collide With an Uninsured Driver?
Colorado law mandates that every driver carry auto liability insurance. Nevertheless, some careless individuals choose to operate a vehicle without it.
If you’ve been in an accident with an uninsured driver, you may wonder who will pay for medical bills and other losses. Even if a driver has liability coverage, it may not cover expenses from accidents resulting in serious injury or property damage.
Typically, the first course of action is initiating a claim through your insurance provider. But too often, insurance companies try to settle for less than you need to cover expenses. If you’re under pressure to accept the offered settlement or your insurance provider is delaying or threatening to deny payment, contact us.
Our experienced team of Colorado legal professionals has a wealth of experience in managing cases related to uninsured drivers and can provide you with the guidance you need.

Common Questions About Uninsured Motorist Cases
What do I do if an uninsured motorist hits me?
First, seek medical care for you and any others who were with you. Then do the following:
- Report the accident to the police and obtain a written report.
- Exchange registration information with the other driver.
- Take photos of both the scene and your injuries.
- Inform your insurance company you were involved in an uninsured motorist accident.
- Contact a lawyer who is experienced in handling uninsured motorist claims.
How can I seek compensation for my injuries and damages from the uninsured motorist?
Explore legal options such as pursuing a claim through your own insurance policy's uninsured motorist coverage. Legally, your insurer can’t raise your rates for doing so, and if the at-fault driver has assets, your insurer will find them.
What steps should I take to document and gather evidence of the accident and my injuries?
It's important to document the accident by taking photos, obtaining witness statements, and collecting any available evidence. Additionally, keep records of medical treatment, expenses, and any other relevant documentation.
Are there any deadlines or time limitations for filing a lawsuit against the uninsured motorist?
Yes, there are time limitations, known as the statute of limitations, for filing a lawsuit. It's crucial to consult with a personal injury lawyer promptly to understand and comply with the specific deadlines that apply to your case.
What types of damages can I recover?
You may be able to recover various types of damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses directly resulting from the accident. Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. can help determine the specific damages applicable to your case and how to pursue fair compensation.
