How Long Do You Have to File a Claim or Lawsuit?

Colorado’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. The clock starts ticking on that two-year period as soon as you are injured, so it’s essential to contact an attorney right away to make sure your claim is filed in time. There are exceptions to this rule, but to truly understand the deadlines that apply to your particular case, you need to consult a Colorado injury attorney. Additionally, some medical malpractice claims have a shorter statute of limitations, which may be as little as six months.
