Accident Claims in Colorado
When you have been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may find it difficult to get the compensation you deserve. The person who caused the accident may deny responsibility or may attempt to blame you for what happened. The insurance company for the responsible party may unfairly deny your claim or may try to diminish it. The insurance company is not there to protect you (despite what their advertisements may claim) and they may try to get you to settle for less than what your claim is worth by offering a lowball settlement.
Don’t let the actions of another person cost you your future or your livelihood. You don’t have to be bullied by insurance companies that are only looking out for their shareholders. By hiring a legal team with the right skills and experience to represent you, getting justice and fair compensation is possible.
At Eddington our attorneys refuse to let Colorado families suffer due to the negligent actions of others. We are prepared to investigate your accident, collect evidence, determine liability, and negotiate for a settlement that will make you whole again.

Like all other states, Colorado has a statute of limitations in place for filing an injury claim. The statute begins to “toll” from the date of your accident, and if you do not file your claim within the period allowed, the court will refuse to hear your case. In Colorado, the statute of limitations for injury claims is two years from the date of the accident.
If you are filing a medical malpractice claim, you have two years from the date of discovery of your illness or injury to file.
Colorado follows a contributory negligence doctrine, which means that victims are not barred from recovering compensation if they are partially at fault for the accident. To recover compensation, however, your portion of negligence must not be more than the defendants. In addition, the amount of damages you can recover will be diminished in proportion to your own attributed negligence.
At Eddington, we believe that all Colorado residents deserve the highest-quality legal representation if they are hurt by someone else’s actions or inaction. That’s why we represent our clients on a contingency-fee basis. We will fight tenaciously on your behalf without any upfront payment at all.

It’s never too early to contact a lawyer to help you with your injury claim. Even though you have two years to commence legal action, it is not recommended to wait.
