Colorado Is An “At Fault” State and The Following Rules Apply | Motor Car Vehicle Motorcycle Accident Lawyer and Attorney
Colorado’s tort system states that reasonable fault must be found on the part of one of the drivers before insurance claims will be paid out. For example, if you were injured recently in a vehicle car crash accident, you must file a claim against the ‘other’ driver’s insurance company. If your claim is denied you have the burden of proof to show the other driver was, in fact, at fault. Hence, Colorado’s “at-fault” laws.
Depending on the other driver’s level of coverage, the injured party may enjoy some relief if he, she or they have Uninsured/Underinsured (UM/UIM) coverage, but with an aggressive lawyer on your side, he or she has the experience to present your case and argue against unfair denials.
Car and Automobile Accident Law Firm Attorneys | What Are Your Limits On Claiming Damages?
There is a $400,000 cap on all injuries associated with pain and suffering and emotional turmoil. However, the cap does not apply if the injured person(s) can prove permanent physical damage. A similar cap applies to wrongful death actions.
Punitive damages are limited on a ‘one to one’ basis, which means a jury will only award you, regardless how reckless the at-fault drivers conduct, the same amount as all provable actual damages. This means that if a base model Lexus was damaged, you won’t receive more in damages to receive an upgraded Lexus model, just what is necessary to purchase the same model Lexus.
Also remember that Colorado has a STRICT three-year deadline to make any auto accident claims. A lawyer’s biggest challenge is racing against the clock.
