Every Colorado driver is legally required to have at least $25,000 of bodily injury liability coverage. This means that if you are injured in a Colorado car accident, you may be entitled to at least $25,000 from the others driver’s insurance company. Despite this legal requirement, many drivers who cause car accidents in Colorado do not have bodily injury liability insurance, or do not have enough to cover all of the injuries that result from the accident that they caused. The Law Offices of Denver Attorney Alan Shafner can help.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident in Colorado by an uninsured or under-insured motorist, you may be having trouble recovering enough money to cover all of your injuries. Contact Denver attorney Alan Shafner now for a FREE consultation.

According to Colorado law, insurance companies selling automobile insurance in Colorado are legally required to sell Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Insurance as part of every insurance policy they sell, unless the coverage is specifically refused in writing. Uninsured or under-insured coverage is separate coverage that provides coverage if you are injured in an accident caused by an uninsured or an under-insured driver. This type of coverage is designed to pay for any damages for which the other driver’s insurance policy would have paid, if the other driver had proper insurance. An experienced Colorado auto accident insurance lawyer can review your policy and make sure that you are getting all of the money to which you are entitled to from your Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.
As of January 1st, 2008, two significant changes have taken place in the way you can recover uninsured/under-insured motorist benefits. First, insurance companies may no longer “offset” any money paid by the underinsured motorist’s insurance policy against the value of your uninsured/under-insured policy. This means that you may be due the entire value of both policies if you’ve been injured by an under-insured motorist. Before 2008, your insurance company could subtract the value that the under-insured motorist’s insurance could pay you from the full value of your uninsured/underinsured motorist policy.
Second, insurance companies may no longer include “anti-stacking” language in your uninsured/underinsured motorist policy. This means that if you are paying for uninsured/underinsured policies on multiple vehicles, you may be eligible to receive the full benefit of all of the policies to pay for injuries, not just one. If you’ve been injured in a Colorado car accident and have questions about your uninsured/under-insured motorist policy, call the Law Offices of Alan Shafner today. Attorney Alan Shafner has the experience and knowledge of Colorado insurance laws to sort through the complex policy issues involved, and help you get all the compensation to which you are entitled.
