Insurance Coverage After an Accident and What You Should Know
Auto injury liability insurance is mandatory in Colorado. The minimum required liability limit for auto injury-related claims in Colorado is $25,000. However, it’s important to understand your rights with regard to alternative coverage under your own auto injury insurance policy including Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage because this coverage will also apply as Underinsured Motorist coverage in the event that the party at fault was not carrying enough auto insurance to cover all your damages. Retaining an experienced auto injury lawyer is critical since there are important requirements necessary to preserve your claim including the need to secure consent to the underlying third party liability settlement from your insurer prior to settling. It’s also possible that multiple policies may apply as in the case when the claimant resides with a family member that has a separate policy including UM. Finally, additional insurance coverage may be available including required medical payments coverage on the accident victim’s own policy as well. This highlights the significance of retaining an experienced auto injury lawyer if you’ve been involved in an accident in order to ensure that the accident victim takes advantage of all applicable forms of insurance coverage.
