Have you been the unfortunate victim of a car accident? Have you, or someone you know, suffered devastating losses of time, health, and even life? You’ll need the assistance of our Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys — us! Read on to find out some more information about what you need to do if you’ve been injured in a wreck.
In Colorado, there is a two-year statute of limitations on filing a claim. In other words, from the day you’ve been injured, the clock starts ticking — you have two years to file a claim stating you’ve been hurt. If you don’t bring suit within that time, you will be barred from filing any sort of claim at all.
In addition, it is absolutely essential to hire an attorney to represent your best interests, because of Colorado’s comparative fault rule. This rule states that the injured party (that is, you) bears some fault in the accident, which reduces what the injured party (that is, you) will get in a settlement. Without proper representation, the person (or company) who caused the injury may end up laying the complete fault of the accident on you!
