How Long Do I Have to File My Claim?

Known as the Statute of Limitations, there are special laws that forbid claimants from coming forward after a specified period of time has passed since an accident. As with many other states, Colorado allows injured individuals two years to file a personal injury claim after the original date of injury. In cases when injury may have developed over a vague period of time, this is generally specified as when the claimant reasonably should have known they were injured. For minors, the statute of limitations does not begin to apply until they reach the age of 18.

However longer and shorter Statutes of Limitation (SOL) may apply depending on the nature of your case. If it is a car crash, the SOL is 3 years. If it is an assault, the SOL is one year. Special rules also apply if the injured person is a child or was incompetent during the time the time that one normally measures the SOL expiration date. To avoid your claim being barred by the Statutes of Limitation, you should contact an attorney immediately.
