Unfortunately, your emotional distress damages are not actionable in Colorado. To recover for negligent infliction of emotional distress,Colorado law requires a showing that you were physically threatened or in a zone of danger, created by the negligence of the defendant. Your anger and frustration are understandable. But there is no recognized claim for damages.

I agree with the other responses posted. Document the incident. Obtain full copies of your own auto insurance to examine it for MEDPAY and Under Insured/Uninsured coverages. Do not give a telephone statement to an insurance adjuster. Get competent medical assistance from a medical doctor. If you have a personal injury, you should at least consult with an experienced attorney.
