What is a Statute of Limitations?
Under Colorado law, if you wait too long to fight for your rights to compensation after an accident, you may lose them entirely and not be able to bring negligent parties to justice. Every state has its own statute of limitations, or an amount of time in which victims can file personal injury claims to recover damages. In Colorado, the statute of limitations for most cases involving non-fatal injuries is two years. Individuals and families have two years from the date of injury to file a claim in cases including construction accidents, medical malpractice, premises-related accidents, ski accidents, and more.
Colorado has a special three-year statute of limitations for auto accidents. It’s important to hire an attorney as soon as possible so they can begin working on your case before your window closes. Missing out on your opportunity to hold negligent parties responsible can result in serious strains on you, your family, and your finances.
Handling a personal injury claim on your own can be extremely challenging, especially if you have no idea what evidence you need to establish liability. Only with a personal injury attorney on your side do you have a good chance at recovering damage you may have accrued from your accident.
