Getting Hit By an Uninsured or Underinsured Driver Can Add Insult to Injury

Hey, Colorado! Did you know that the Centennial State ranks #9 in the United States with the highest rate of uninsured drivers?

What happens if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist? 

Follow these steps after getting into an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist:

- Contact your insurance agency immediately after your accident.

- If you believe that the other driver was not insured, you want to let them know that you will most likely need to file an uninsured claim.

- Don't delay, some insurance policies have strict deadlines on filing uninsured/underinsured motorist claims.

During this time, it is important to speak to an experienced and skilled accident lawyer to help you avoid missing any necessary deadlines and to get you access to compensation you deserve. The McDivitt Law Firm will guide you through this ordeal and help put your life back together after an accident.



In 1974, Mike and Karen McDivitt started what eventually became McDivitt Law Firm. The firm is rooted in the principle that each person deserves to have equal access to the civil justice system. The McDivitts firmly believe that everyone should be able to have an attorney, whether you can afford one or not. Mike made it clear from the start that he doesn’t get a fee unless he is able to get you the money you deserve for your injuries.

In 2007, Karen and Mike’s son David joined the firm as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. A nationally recognized trial lawyer, David now runs the firm’s litigation and trial group, where he is responsible for both trying and supervising jury trials through verdict.

Over the past several decades, the firm has become one of the largest Personal Injury law firms in Colorado. It is still family-owned, but now Mike and Karen McDivitt are able to provide quality legal representation to thousands more clients than they could when they first opened their doors. With more than 80 staff and attorneys, McDivitt Law Firm prides itself on its ability to provide first-class legal representation to each of its clients, in a way that is affordable to anyone.
