    Colorado Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims

    In Colorado, the statute of limitations requires you to file a lawsuit on your personal injury claim within a certain period. Failure to timely file your claim can lead to the court permanently dismissing your case. Most personal injury claims must be filed in court within two years after your injury or the later date when you discover your injury and what caused it. However, for car accident claims, you have three years from the accident date to file your lawsuit.

    If you wish to bring your injury claim against a state or local government agency, Colorado law requires you to give the agency notice of your claim before you can file suit. Usually, notice must be provided within 182 days of the date of your injury. Failure to give timely notice means the court does not have jurisdiction to hear your personal injury claim against the government.

    Steps to Take to Protect Your Rights After an Accident

    After an accident of any kind in Colorado, you should take the following steps to protect your rights and put you in a better position to pursue a personal injury claim against those responsible for your injuries:

    • Get information at the accident scene. Get the names and contact information of the person or persons you believe may have caused the accident and injured you. Also, try to get the names and contact information for any eyewitnesses if they may be willing to provide a statement describing what happened.
    • Try to take photos or videos of the accident scene. Also, document any visible injuries you may have suffered.
    • Get examined by a doctor. A physician can identify all the injuries that you have suffered. Having your injuries promptly diagnosed will create a medical record that strengthens your claim that your injuries were caused by the accident. If you wait too long to seek medical attention, the at-fault parties might try to claim that your injuries were caused by something else or represent pre-existing or degenerative injuries.
    • Follow all treatment instructions and recommendations. If you don’t follow up on your treatment, the other party may argue that you aren’t as seriously hurt as you claim. You may also negatively impact your rights to compensation because you allowed your injuries to worsen and failed to mitigate your losses.
    • Keep a journal throughout your recovery and personal injury claim. Jot down all memories you have of how you were injured so that you have a record to refresh your memory down the line. More importantly, try to document the impacts that your pain and treatment have had on your personal and professional life. A journal of your recovery from your injuries can help support your claim for compensation for pain and suffering or lost quality of life.
    • Try to avoid discussing your injuries or your legal claim on social media. If you post something on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media networks that contradicts your official statements in your claim, it could negatively impact your case. Also, avoid posting any photos or videos of yourself on social media while you recover from your injuries. Insurance adjusters and defense lawyers may try to use pictures of you vacationing or being active to argue that you are not as injured or disabled as you claim.

    Finally, you should talk to an experienced Colorado personal injury lawyer at Earl & Earl, PLLC, about your rights and options for pursuing a claim for compensation. We will charge no fees unless we recover the compensation that you deserve.
