DAMAGES UNDER COLORADO LAW FOR AUTO ACCIDENT VICTIMS

DAMAGES UNDER COLORADO LAW FOR AUTO ACCIDENT VICTIMS

150 150 Gregory A. Hall

DENVER PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

In Colorado, the driver who is at fault in the auto accident is primarily responsible for the cost of compensating the persons hurt in the accident who are not at fault.  If you are hurt by a negligent driver in Colorado, you are entitled to compensation for your losses and expenses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Repair costs
  • Emotional  trauma, mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Embarrassment and humiliation
  • Disfigurement and permanent scars
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of love and affection
  • Out of pocket expenses relating to the accident
  • Loss of home services, such as inability to maintain the upkeep of your home

UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED MOTORIST (UIM) COVERAGE IN COLORADO

If the at fault driver does not have enough insurance or assets to cover your losses, then you may have to make a claim for uninsured (UI) or under-insured motorist (UIM) benefits from your own insurance company.  Colorado requires your auto insurance company to offer you UI and UIM coverage.  It almost never makes sense to deny or opt out of this coverage, so contact your insurance agent and make sure that your policy includes UI and UIM coverage and make sure you have sufficient bodily injury limits on your policy.
