Colorado Car Insurance Requirements
Colorado operates on a traditional fault-based insurance system, which requires drivers responsible for any accidents to pay for the damages that the other people involved incur. As a result, Colorado requires each driver to carry the following minimum amounts of insurance coverage.
- $25,000 in bodily injury liability per person per accident
- $50,000 in total bodily injury liability per accident
- $15,000 in property damage coverage per accident
These requirements mean you have three main pathways to compensation after an accident. You can file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, or you can file a claim with your own insurance company if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured and you have appropriate coverage. You may also file a lawsuit in Colorado civil court if the insurance policy limits are not high enough to cover your damages, the insurance company refuses to settle, or the settlement offers you receive are insufficient.
The attorneys at Jordan, Herington & Rowley will examine the facts surrounding your accident and help you decide which pathway to take. Whatever option you choose, our firm can represent your claim — our lawyers have significant experience with insurance claims and civil lawsuits.
What Damages Can You Collect in a Car Accident Claim?
You are eligible for two main types of damages following a car accident: economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to the out-of-pocket losses you experience after an accident, including medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, involve emotional damage such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of quality of life.
You may also qualify for punitive damages, depending on the facts of your case. Courts award punitive damages to punish at-fault drivers rather than compensate you for your losses. You must prove that the at-fault driver acted in a way that was fraudulent, malicious, or an example of willful and wanton conduct.
