A car accident can really ruin your day. Even if you escape without the expense and trauma of injuries, there is a good chance that your vehicle will have been damaged in the incident. Of course, if the fault lies with the other driver, you hope that their insurance will cover it. Unfortunately, all too many drivers in Colorado lack sufficient insurance. Some do not have policies at all. If you become involved in an accident with one of these drivers, it can be a huge problem.
In many cases, insurance policies come with a component to deal with this eventuality. This means that the cost of your medical expenses and repair bills resulting from the accident should be covered by your insurance provider. However, the claim process can be extremely complex and arduous. Often it can be beneficial to have the advice of an attorney when attempting to navigate these difficult proceedings.
You may find that your insurance provider is reluctant to pay what you are due, or attempts to sell you short. Fortunately, your attorney should be able to see this coming and help to ensure that you receive the remuneration you deserve. If you receive less than you should, not only does this leave you out of pocket, it can even slow down your potential recovery.
