Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases

After being involved in an accident, you may feel fine and choose not to pursue legal action against the individual who caused the accident. Unfortunately, some injuries may arise several weeks, months, or even years after an accident.

When this is the case, you may still be able to file a personal injury lawsuit, but only if your case falls within the statute of limitations for personal injury cases. The statute of limitations refers to the amount of time that may pass between an accident and an individual filing legal action for that accident.

Statute of Limitations in Colorado

In the state of Colorado, the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is two years. This means that an individual who suffers injuries in an accident has two years to file a lawsuit against the person who caused the accident.

In Colorado, this two-year period applies to all personal injury cases, including:

  • General negligence cases
  • Medical malpractice
  • Wrongful death
  • Auto accidents
  • Workplace injuries

The statute of limitations varies depending on the state in which the accident occurred. Additionally, other states may have different statutes of limitations for different types of personal injury cases. This means that the limitations for medical malpractice and wrongful death cases, for example, may differ.

Making a Claim

Since you have two years to make a personal injury claim in Colorado, you may sue for any delayed harm that you suffer from an accident at any time in the two years that follow. It is important to note, however, that the burden of proof may become more difficult the longer you wait to file a claim.
