What Is the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in CO?


The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Colorado is typically two years. This means that you generally have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit in a personal injury case. If you fail to file your lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries through the legal system.

It's important to note that statutes of limitations can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case and the type of personal injury claim. Some exceptions and variations may apply, so it's crucial to consult with a Colorado attorney who specializes in personal injury law to get the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the statute of limitations that applies to your particular situation.

Please keep in mind that laws can change over time, so it's essential to verify this information with a qualified attorney or by checking the most recent Colorado state statutes to ensure accuracy and compliance with the law as of your current date in 2023.

What Should I Do After an Accident?

After an accident, it is normal to feel stressed out and concerned about what will happen. You may be wondering what the next best steps are. Whether you are involved in a car accident, motorcycle accident, trucking accident, slip-and-fall accident, construction accident, or any other type of accident, there are steps you can take to strengthen your case.

You should always take the following steps after an accident:

  • Seek medical attention: This is important so that you have a record of treatment you received and you have evidence that links your injuries to the accident.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer: Your lawyer can review police reports, secure and evaluate evidence, work with your doctor, consult with experts and help you determine the best way to proceed.
  • Take pictures at the scene if possible: Evidence can quickly disappear after an accident. A trucking company may repair the truck, or a store owner can clean up any safety hazards. Documenting this evidence quickly can help.
  • Get the names of witnesses if possible: Witnesses can lend credibility to your account of events. If you get a name, your attorney can track them down later.

Representing You Before Insurance Companies

The most important thing you should NOT do after an accident is speak with insurance adjusters. As your attorney, I can speak with insurance companies on your behalf. This can prevent them from using your own words to limit compensation.

I am not afraid to fight for your best interest and will never settle your case too early. Instead, I take the time to prepare for trial if it is not possible to negotiate a settlement that addresses all of your financial needs, such as present and future medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

You Owe Nothing Unless I Recover for You

Remember that it is very important that you retain counsel as soon as possible – never let cost be a barrier to getting the legal help you need.
