Personal Injury and the Statute of Limitations in Colorado
In the state of Colorado, you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. This is known as the statute of limitations and if you miss this deadline, you could be prevented from filing a claim and seeking compensation. This is done, at least in part, to protect the rights of the defendant, so he or she will not have to spend decades wondering if an injured person is going to sue. Further, witnesses to accidents move, forget details or even die, therefore states have determined that statutes of limitations are necessary for all involved. There are certain circumstances, however, in which an injured person may be able to file a lawsuit after the two-year time limit. An experienced attorney will be able to ensure that you do not miss any critical deadlines for filing a claim.
Other Personal Injury Issues
Colorado operates under the “strict” liability rules for dog bites or dog attacks. In some states dog owners are protected to at least a degree from injury liability the first time their dog bites or attacks a human being, if the owner had no reason to think their dog was dangerous. This is often known as the “one-bite rule.” The state of Colorado, however, holds dog owners strictly liable for injury, meaning the dog’s past behavior is of no concern, and the owner is responsible for any injury inflicted by his or her dog.
