Negligence & Personal Injury in Colorado

Personal injury cases in Colorado are those cases where a person has been injured at either no fault of their own, or due primarily to another’s actions. Negligence is the cornerstone of a personal injury suit, as it is usually another person’s negligence that causes a person to become injured in the first place. The majority of all personal injury matters involving auto accidents are due to negligence. Negligence is akin to carelessness, and under Colorado law it is the person that acts negligently in causing an accident that is held responsible.

Personal injury is a phrase that refers to many types of claims: auto accidents, wrongful death, dog bites, slip and falls, product liability, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and other type of claim in which a person is injured. The goal in a personal injury lawsuit is to be compensated for one’s losses, both economic and noneconomic. Economic losses include lost wages, property damage, and medical bills. Noneconomic damages are for pain and suffering and other intangible damages caused by another person.

In addition to general negligence cases, personal injury also includes intentional torts, such as assault and battery. The essence is the same, in that you find yourself injured as a result of the actions of another, who should now be held legally accountable.

There is always a statute of limitations involved in bringing a personal injury lawsuit, meaning that there is a deadline within which a lawsuit must be filed. Because time is of the essence, act now and call the attorneys at Jesse Wiens Law to discuss your potential claim before it is too late.
