Colorado law requires vehicle owner to purchase bodily injury (“BI”) liability insurance and carry evidence of such insurance at all times. In fact, motorists cannot even register a vehicle unless the application for registration is accompanied by a certificate of insurance. Against this backdrop, it is not uncommon for irresponsible motorists to acquire liability insurance in accord with Colorado law only to let it lapse thereafter. Alternatively, some motorists simply drive without registration or insurance. In the event of an accident with one of these motorists, the victim remains uncompensated if the negligent motorist is otherwise financially unable to make up for the harms caused. This has become one of the most significant problems in the civil justice system. What happens when a negligent party does not have the capacity to satisfy liability?
