It may seem like you are in a lose-lose situation after an uninsured motorist accident. However, that is not necessarily the case. A skilled car accident attorney in Denver can conduct a complete investigation into your case to determine exactly what happened. An attorney will also examine your insurance policy as well as the other driver’s assets to explore all routes for securing compensation for your injuries and property damage expenses.
In the state of California, every driver on the roadway is required to purchase and maintain the following types of insurance:
However, when we turn to data available from the Insurance Information Institute (III), we can see that around 16% of all Colorado drivers are uninsured. This is a very high number, particularly when compared to the rest of the country.
One of the first places individuals struck by uninsured drivers should look to recover compensation is their own insurance carrier. We strongly encourage all drivers to purchase and maintain uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage will help in the event drivers are struck by someone without insurance.
When we look at data available from the Colorado Department of Transportation, we can see that there were more than 22,000 total vehicle collisions reported in Denver County during the latest reporting year. This county saw more vehicle accidents than any other during that year, which is why we strongly encourage every driver to purchase uninsured motorist coverage.
In some cases, it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused the incident. These cases can become complicated, particularly if the at-fault driver does not have significant assets in their name.
