How We Can Help

We represent victims who've been injured in accidents involving the following: 

  • Auto Accidents – After a collision, we will arrange a complimentary consultation with you as soon as possible so that all the facts of the case can be accurately tracked while they are still fresh in everyone's minds. We may also enlist the help of an accident scene investigator and/or reconstructionist to make certain that no piece of evidence that could benefit your claim gets missed.
  • Dog Bites and Animal Attacks – If you were attacked by an animal—even someone’s pet—you could be experiencing severe pain and trauma, as well as disfigurement. In these cases, it’s important to involve an attorney as soon as possible to for help seeking compensation from the animal’s owner. 
  • Explosion Cases – Working in the oil and construction fields brings with it potential hazards, yet many accidents and injuries could have been prevented. When tragic incidents occur, victims are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, wages lost due to injuries, and/or other damages that may arise from the accident. If you or a family member have been injured by an explosion in Colorado, contact Veritas for help. 
  • Motorcycle Accidents – When representing motorcycle accident cases, we work with experienced accident reconstructionists and investigators to demonstrate third-party negligence and liability. We also utilize cutting-edge technology such as animations, reconstructions, and visualizations to help effectively convey the events that led to your accident and subsequent injuries.
  • Premises Liability Accidents – If you were injured on somebody else's property due to negligent care and/or unsafe conditions, you may qualify for reparation. If you were an invited guest of the area and were injured through no fault of your own, we can help you file a premises liability lawsuit to cover your medical costs and other accident-related expenses.
  • Skiing Accidents – We accept cases involving accidents caused by reckless snowboarders and skiers, collisions, negligent employees and lift operators, improper care of facilities / ski lifts, off-road crashes, and more. 
  • Wrongful Death – A wrongful death claim can be filed to help surviving loved ones recover damages resulting from the loss of life due to another's negligence or fault. In filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you are seeking restitution for the emotional and financial distress caused by your loved one’s untimely passing. 

Establishing Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit 

In Colorado, injury victims must demonstrate that the party being charged with liability acted negligently or intentionally caused injury. Negligence is a failure to exercise reasonable care and can include an action or inaction that results in injury. To establish liability, injury victims must show that the defendant had a duty of care to protect them from injury, that the duty of care was violated, and injury resulted due to the violation. 

According to the Colorado statute of limitations, injury victims who have suffered from an injury due to someone else’s negligence have two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim.

Stay In The Know

  • How Much Time Do I Have to File an Auto Accident Lawsuit?
    In most cases, you have around three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. The deadline can be prolonged if you discovered the injury later. If you are planning to sue a government establishment, you may be required to file a claim within a few months after the accident.
  • If the Accident Was Somewhat My Fault, Can I Still Win My Case?
    Yes. However, you may not win the maximum possible settlement amount. Under Colorado's fault principles, your damages will be decreased in proportion to your fault. So, if you were 30% at fault, then your damages would be reduced by that amount in the claims. Keep in mind that the court determines fault.
  • What Is the Required Minimum Auto Insurance In Colorado?
    Legal auto insurance coverage is: $25,000 per injured victim $15,000 minimum in property damage $50,000 per accident, no matter how many victims have been affected Since Colorado is a "fault" state, this means you can file a claim against the defendant driver's insurance carrier. However, if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, there are steps you can take to get around that.
