About Our Personal Injury Law Practice 

In the event of an accident, it's crucial to have a leg up when dealing with insurance companies. After all, they are well-funded, educated, and determined to find any reason to dismiss your personal injury claim and avoid paying you. The best way to preserve your rights and protect your best interests is by hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you. 

Attorney Gary Doehling spent 40+ years dealing with large insurance companies and has shared his inside knowledge on how to effectively combat insurance tactics with the rest of our team at Veritas. Armed with this knowledge, we are able to better anticipate the strategies and tactics that insurers deploy when attempting to avoid paying out on personal injury claims, giving us a distinct edge both in and out of court as we fight for the compensation our clients are rightfully owed for their pain and suffering.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Colorado

When filing a personal injury claim in Colorado, there are several important considerations that must be considered. It is essential to understand the laws governing injury claims and how these laws pertain to your particular situation. Veritas can help you navigate the complexities of injury law in Colorado and protect your rights throughout the legal process.  

When injury is caused by the negligent or intentional actions of another person, the victim is entitled to seek compensation for their damages. In a personal injury lawsuit, damages are the losses suffered by the injured party. The types of damages available in a personal injury claim vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific nature of the injury, and can include: 

  • Lost wages 
  • Medical bills 
  • Property damage / losses 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 

In Colorado, injury victims have a limited amount of time in which to file a personal injury lawsuit. This time period is known as the statute of limitations, and it varies depending on the type of injury case. Generally speaking, injury victims in Colorado have two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit, so do not wait to contact an attorney and take action. 

Our skilled Gunnison County personal injury lawyers understand the financial and emotional distress that injury victims endure, often long after the accident has occurred. We will do everything in our power to ensure that you receive the medical treatment, legal protection, and compensation you deserve during this difficult time.

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.
