Services We Provide

Our law firm is prepared to handle a range of different personal injury claims. There is no incident that is too complex for our experienced attorneys. Our team can work on cases involving:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Many people are injured in car accidents they aren’t responsible for. We have the tools to work with insurance companies, the at-fault party, and the courts to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve after a car accident.
  • Burn injuries: Burn injury cases can be sensitive and complex, but our team will fully investigate the cause of your accident and hold all of the relevant parties accountable.
  • Brain injuries: A brain injury can permanently alter someone’s life. Insurance companies often undervalue these claims, but our attorneys are not afraid to go up against large companies for the compensation our clients are entitled to.
  • Medicaid & Medicare: Some clients have been led to believe that they cannot seek compensation for an accident if their medical bills are covered by Medicaid or Medicare. However, they can still pursue claims for the rest of their damages, and we’re here to help.
  • Premises liability: If you were injured on someone else’s property because they were negligent in caring for the property, you may be entitled to compensation. Our extensive experience researching such cases means we can help you get the money you deserve.
  • Workers’ compensation: If you were injured at work, you might be eligible for workers’ compensation. However, you may also be eligible to file a third-party personal injury claim if a different negligent party caused the accident at your place of work. We can help you determine which course of action is right for you.

Our Telluride attorneys are equipped to handle these types of cases and many more. We understand the sensitive nature of personal injury cases, and our goal is to make sure our clients receive deserved compensation and can focus on healing.

Statute of Limitations in Colorado

The state of Colorado has set a 2-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means that injured people must file their personal injury lawsuits within two years from the day they were injured to seek compensation. There is a lot of chaos that happens after an accident, and over time an injured person may not have their claim on the front of their mind. 

However, acting as soon as possible can help ensure a personal injury lawsuit’s success. These cases take time to compile, but Veritas has the experience to handle your case efficiently and accurately.

Proving Liability

There are three main components that need to be proven in a personal injury lawsuit for it to be successful. Those components are:

  • You suffered an injury or losses due to an accident
  • The accident was caused by someone else’s negligence
  • That negligence was the direct cause of your injuries or losses

The team at Veritas knows what evidence to compile to help you prove liability in your personal injury lawsuit. Medical records, police reports, security camera footage, and witness accounts are all valuable pieces of evidence we can seek on your behalf.

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.
