In a case of first impression, a federal court sitting in Colorado, construing Colorado law, held that an employee injured in a work-related vehicle accident may not recover under his or her employer’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. The court stressed that its decision was consistent with public policy; allowing employees to recover under their employer’s policies could, among other things, discourage them from purchasing coverage of their own.
