Motorcycle accidents can be a traumatic experience. As motorcyclists struggle to recover from injuries, they may be left dealing with mounting medical bills and wage loss. When this occurs, it is natural to want the driver who is responsible to pay for these sudden expenses – but what if the driver who hit you was uninsured or had inadequate insurance?
Effective January 1, 2008 consumers have been afforded a greater level of protection from uninsured or under-insured motorists in the State of Colorado. For the individual who has been injured in an uninsured or under-insured motorcycle accident, compensation may be provided in excess of the at-fault driver's liability insurance. The same may be true of people injured on motorcycles in other states such as Utah or Wyoming.
If you purchased uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage, your attorney may be able to file a claim with your insurance company. This will allow you to receive money FAST and may avoid any unnecessary red tape.
