About 1 in every 7 motorists in the U.S. is driving without car insurance, according to the Insurance Research Council (IRC). In Colorado, the IRC has estimated that about 15 percent of all drivers don’t have car insurance. While drivers may choose to get any or enough car insurance for any number of different reasons (like, for instance, the high cost of premiums), the fact is that, when these drivers are responsible for causing car accidents, accident victims:
- Will have difficulty getting the compensation they deserve from the at-fault driver, as these motorists likely don’t have sufficient assets to pay victims for their damages
- Can look to their own insurance companies for compensation if they have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage
- Should not rely on insurance companies to give them the full amount of compensation to which they are due because insurers are notorious for trying to reduce or deny payouts in an effort to preserve their own profits.

We are skilled at representing victims, helping them deal with insurers and, ultimately helping them get the compensation they deserve.
