Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents
A personal injury occurs when you suffer harm as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless actions. Some of the most common types of personal injury accidents include car collisions, medical malpractice, product malfunctions, motorcycle accidents, and truck crashes.
Many different accidents can result in personal injury, but not every instance of these accidents qualifies for civil action. You will need to establish the existence of negligence to successfully claim compensation in a personal injury case.
For example, if you are in a car crash with a driver who accidentally skids over a patch of black ice during a winter morning, it can be difficult to tell if negligence played a role. However, if the driver ran through a red light, skid over the black ice, and crashed into your vehicle, you can point to the traffic violation as a breach of duty of care. This will help further your negligence claim.
How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Colorado?
All Colorado civil lawsuits must adhere to the statute of limitations, or the deadline by which you must file your claim. If you do not file within this time period, the court will refuse to hear your case.
You have two years from the date of your accident to file your lawsuit. If you did not know about your injury until a later date, you have two years from the date you discovered or should have reasonably discovered your injury to file.
While the statute of limitations may seem restrictive, it is best to file your claim as soon as possible. This deadline helps keep evidence as fresh as possible and ensures all witnesses who testify in the claim have reliable memories and are available to come to the courtroom.
To ensure you file by the correct date, speak to an attorney at Jordan Law about your claim.
