Insurance Disputes - Colorado Personal Injury Attorneys - Burg Simpson

In 2015 – the most recent year for which data is available – Colorado residents shelled out a collective $32 billion in insurance premiums to roughly 1,400 different carriers. Of course, the top 27 insurance companies on that list collect more than half of that money. A little more than 11 percent of that premium went toward car insurance policies, while just around 6 percent was paid to homeowner policies.

Simply put, these policies that consume so much of the average person’s paycheck don’t make up that much of the income that these insurance giants rake in. But that doesn’t stop them from fighting back over what appear to be the most straightforward claims. And they can afford to. They can wait months or even years before paying out on a claim. The average family can’t make it weeks, let alone months, without a vehicle, an income or a place to live.

Burg Simpson’s experienced Denver personal injury attorneys understand. We realize how a dispute with an insurance company can change the lives of the victim and his or her family dramatically. The cost of an insurance dispute can be devastating – both financially and emotionally.

If you find yourself in the middle of a disagreement with your insurance company – or someone else’s – the best thing you can do is to call us immediately. We can help educate you about your rights, walk you through your options and take on your fight as if it’s our own. A lawyer trained and experienced in negotiation is more likely to obtain a settlement than if you were to try to settle a case on your own. Not only that, but any settlement you do reach is likely to be much higher than anything you could negotiate on your own. In fact, many times a defendant or insurance company won’t do anything at all unless, or until, a lawyer threatens them with a lawsuit.

When you sign an insurance policy with your carrier, you agree to pay you’re a premium in exchange for coverage if you suffer a loss. In Colorado, your insurance company is obligated to make you whole, which simply means restoring you to the condition you were in before an accident, to the best of their ability. But there is more to it than that. That policy is a legal contract. As part of that, you carrier also vows to:

  • Defend you against legal claims from another party (or their insurance company).
  • Pay successful claims against you.

If you’re insurance company has failed to do any of these things, you need a Denver injury attorney at Burg Simpson to help you make things right before it’s too late.

Even with the best representation, negotiations don’t always work. If your case is forced to go to trial, Burg Simpson’s Colorado personal injury attorneys have years of litigation experience. You couldn’t be in better hands. Trial and pretrial procedures are increasingly complicated. Those unfamiliar with them are likely to make costly mistakes and forfeit opportunities to assemble the best possible case. Burg Simpson’s lawyers know the system. We know the judges. And we know how to present a case to a jury. We also can best decide what options you might have regarding a third-party claim.

When you’ve been injured in an accident or suffered a catastrophic loss, the last thing you want to do is spend time on the phone (or in court) fighting with insurance companies about how much money they’re going to pay you. Let Burg Simpson help. We believe no other firm has the resources, reputation, or proven track record of success when it comes to assisting injured individuals and their loved ones. We’ve been battling with insurance companies and their armies of lawyers for decades. Call us today at 303-792-5595 of fill out our FREE Evaluation Form right now.
