    After an accident, seek out immediate medical help. The sooner you receive treatment, the better your odds of making a strong comeback. And when you feel up to it, contact a personal injury lawyer in Colorado Springs to review your case.

    Establishing Liability

    The fact that you were injured in an accident is not really enough to get compensation. Instead, you need to prove that someone else was at fault. In most cases, this means establishing that the person was negligent.

    Colorado law requires that all people use reasonable care in their daily activities. If they don’t, and they end up injuring someone, then they can be sued and must pay compensation to victims.

    Whether someone has been negligent depends on the circumstances. But there are some obvious examples of negligence, such as motorists who are intoxicated, high, distracted, tired, or talking on a cell phone when behind the wheel. A motorist who engages in risky maneuvers, like running a red light, is also liable for any accidents committed. Meet with a Colorado Springs personal injury attorney to review your case.

    Statute of Limitations

    Colorado gives you a short amount of time to vindicate your right to compensation, with the amount of time depending on the type of case you are bringing:

    • Personal injury involving motor vehicle: 3 years (Colo. Rev. Stat.§ 13-80-101(1)(n))
    • Other personal injury: 2 years (Colo. Rev. Stat. § 13-80-102(1)(i))
    • Product liability: 2 years (Colo. Rev. Stat.§ 13-80-102(1)(b))

    There are severe consequences that await anyone who does not meet the statutory deadline. In particular, a judge will dismiss your case form court, and you will not be able to refile later to hold the defendant responsible for your injuries. As a result, you can end up with no compensation at all, even though the defendant’s negligence injured you.

    There are some narrow exceptions that exist to the statute of limitations, but it is best not to rely on them. If you were in an accident, speak with a car accident attorney in Colorado Springs to protect your rights. Our accident attorneys in Colorado Springs have the experience you need to help you get the compensation you deserve.

    Compensation for Car Accidents

    The purpose of bringing a personal injury claim is to receive compensation for your injuries. At our firm, many of our clients have qualified for money to pay for:

    • Medical care, including diagnostic tests, transportation to the hospital, surgery, doctor visits, rehabilitation, prescription drugs, and prosthetics
    • Lost wages, if you had to take some time off from work to recover
    • Property damage to fix your car

    Colorado also lets victims receive some compensation for less tangible losses, such as:

    • Physical pain
    • Mental distress
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Disfigurement
    • Disability

    Not every client qualifies to receive all of the above. However, you should meet with a car accident lawyer in Colorado Springs to review.

    If a loved one died, then surviving family members might receive compensation for the financial losses that stem from the wrongful death. For example, some of our clients receive compensation to make up for the wages the loved one would have earned had she or he lived.
