A personal injury is legally defined as any injury to the body or the mind. If you or someone you love is injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you have a right to receive compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages. In addition, you may be entitled to compensation for non economic damages such as emotional distress, decreased quality of life and pain and suffering.
After an accident, you may have many questions. Who will pay your medical bills? How will you recover from your injuries? Who will take care of your financial obligations if you are unable to work?

No matter what type of injury you sustained, Colorado has strict laws in place that hold negligent parties liable for your injuries. Since Colorado is an “at fault” state, it is important to determine who those responsible parties are prior to filing a lawsuit. In many cases, there may be many parties responsible for your injuries and an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney will be able to help determine who the responsible parties are and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
In the state of Colorado, there is a 2 year statute of limitations on all personal injury claims. This means that you only have 2 years after an accident to bring a lawsuit against the responsible parties. If your injuries were the result of an automobile accident however, you have 3 years to file your claim. If you or someone you love is injured in an accident, don’t delay. Contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately to avoid missing any critical deadlines and to ensure that your claim is handled quickly and efficiently.
