What are Colorado’s Auto Insurance Laws?

An important part of a car accident claim is determining the insurance coverages available to you. Given the number of driver’s who are uninsured or underinsured, it is often crucial to be carrying adequate coverage through your own insurance company.

Under Colorado law, drivers are only required to carry the following:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury (liability) coverage
  • $50,000 in bodily injury coverage for more than one injured claimant
  • $15,000 in property damage coverage

Additional coverages that you may have access to and can be vital to your injury claim include, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, medical payments coverage and/or personal injury protection, and resident relative coverage.

How Long Does it Take to Resolve a Personal Injury Claim?

This depends on your injuries. Our injury lawyers do not start negotiating with an insurance company until you have sufficiently recovered.

If you have permanent residual problems, we want to ensure this is properly documented and the insurance company is considering these damages. It is important not to rush your case until you know the true extent of your injuries.
