Denver Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Attorneys
When the Person Who Caused Your Accident Can’t Pay
The number of uninsured motorists on the road is large and continues to grow. Of the people who have insurance, half of them have minimal limits. If the person who caused your accident and your injury only has 25/50 coverage and your own insurance does not respond, you may face a world of hurt.
The experienced personal injury attorneys of Kiel & Trueax, LLC, pursue uninsured and underinsured motorist claims against our clients’ own insurance companies so that our clients can receive financial relief from their injuries. Your auto insurance company should not be your rival – they should pay you the full value of your claim without harassing you.

We take time to research and fully understand our clients’ claims so that we can bring their best face forward in negotiations or at trial. In fact, we prepare each case as though we are certain it will go to trial. Insurance companies know this, and they respond.

Why UM Coverage Is Necessary
Without underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage, people who are injured in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver face large medical bills and car repair bills without recourse. Our personal injury attorneys strongly recommend that you purchase UM insurance and bump up your limits on both liability and uninsured motorist coverage. By doing this, you help yourself and your family if you or they get into a bad accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
Under Colorado law, insurance agents must offer uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If they did not do so, they broke the law.
2008 Changes in the Law Benefit People Injured in Accidents With Underinsured Motorists
Colorado law recently changed to benefit people seriously injured in auto accidents with underinsured motorists. Before 2008, people injured in an accident with an underinsured motorist had to subtract the at fault driver’s insurance liability coverage limits from their own. Now, the at fault driver’s insurance stacks on top of the underinsured motorist coverage, allowing for more just compensation amounts.
Our law firm handles underinsured and uninsured motorist claims for clients injured in any type of auto accident, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, hit and run accidents and accidents caused by drunk drivers.
