Colorado Car Accident
How an Experienced Attorney Makes Your Case
Laurie T. was hurt in a Denver car accident on Interstate 70. She needed months of medical treatment and her bills were high. The person who crashed into her had $100,000 of insurance, and Laurie’s bills added up to a good portion of that. Despite that, Laurie decided she could settle the case on her own and not have to pay attorney’s fees. What Laurie didn’t know – and many lawyers who don’t specialize in personal injury law don’t know – was that Colorado law requires special permission from Laurie’s insurer before she could accept the other insurer’s offer, or her insurance company wouldn’t have to pay her underinsured benefits. Laurie changed her mind, Dianne Sawaya navigated the complex laws and Laurie got a fair reimbursement for her accident.
