A – There may be some obvious indications that negligence contributed to your injuries. For instance, if you were hurt in a car accident and the other driver is arrested by police after the collision, it’s likely that the arrested driver may have been negligent (such as by being drunk).

Because, however, negligence in personal injuries can take far more subtle and less obvious forms, it’s critical to meet with an attorney, discuss your accident and get some professional advice regarding =:

  • Whether negligence was a factor in your accident.
  • Your best options for holding the negligent parties accounting for hurting you.

Q – When do personal injury cases have to be filed?

A – Ideally, personal injury cases should be filed very soon after the incident or accident that caused a person’s injuries. Some of the various reasons for this can include that moving forward with case sooner (rather than later) can:

  • Lead to stronger cases, as there may be more evidence available (like witnesses to the accident, for example) to bolster personal injury cases
  • Reduce the chances that the statute of limitations will expire on the case.

In fact, the statute of limitations for filing personal injury cases in Colorado is two years. So, injured people have two years from the date of their accident to file their cases. If they wait even one day after this time frame has passed, they will typically have forfeited their rights to pursue justice in civil court via personal injury cases.
