Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

Grand Junction Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Lawyer

Secure Your Rights Against Uninsured Drivers in Colorado

Colorado law requires motorists to carry bodily injury liability insurance coverage of at least $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. The state also requires $15,000 in property liability coverage for instances when the at-fault driver causes damage to someone else's property.

Unfortunately, many drivers on Colorado’s highways and in cities ignore this law and drive without auto insurance. And the minimums are often insufficient to cover the full costs of a serious injury.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, Veritas can help you fight for compensation. Our experienced lawyers have decades of experience in accident injury law. We serve Western Colorado and Eastern Utah and have locations in Grand Junction, Telluride, Glenwood Springs, Montrose, and Aspen.

 Founding partner Gary Doehling defended insurance companies in personal injury litigation for 25 years, so we possess a thorough understanding of how insurance companies work.

Battling Insurance Companies When Dealing with an Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist

To protect motorists, state lawmakers passed a law in 2008 requiring companies selling automobile insurance in Colorado to include uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance (UM/UIM) as part of every policy unless the coverage is specifically refused in writing. 

This coverage protects you and your passengers in the event someone is injured in an accident that is caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver. Carrying a substantial UM/UIM policy doesn't guarantee that you will be fully compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and other costs, however. Your insurance company may protect its own bottom line by looking for loopholes that allow it to pay less than the full amount you deserve. 

The lawyers at Veritas will battle with the insurance company lawyers on your behalf using our unique, insider knowledge of how they work.

Types of Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Coverage

UM/UIM coverage is available in two forms:

  • Property damage coverage, which covers damage to your car or other property
  • Medical coverage, which is designed to pay your medical bills when you are hit by a driver without insurance

UM/UIM insurance also provides protection if you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident and the other driver is not caught. We can review all available insurance policies and advise on the benefits and next steps to recover maximum compensation.
