Colorado Negligence Laws

After a personal injury, you need funds to help you overcome your injuries. Unfortunately, securing those funds is often easier said than done. For starters, you’ll need to know who or what caused the accident, and then prove that the person or entity responsible is liable for your damages.

Because this can be confusing, you might need the help of the lawyers at the Law Office of Steve Roberts. We understand how confusing Colorado negligence laws can be when you don’t have help on your side. Fortunately, we’re ready to help when you reach out.

Determining Fault

After your injury, determining who’s responsible for your injuries is important. Someone caused your suffering because they were careless, and now you’re facing pain and a long road to recovery. The person responsible for causing your accident and subsequent injuries should also be financially responsible for any resulting damages.

However, that’s not always easy to determine. For example, if you were hit by a commercial driver, they may have been at fault for the accident, but they might not be financially liable for your injuries. Instead, you might need to sue their employer, who is generally responsible for the actions of their employees.

If you’re not sure who’s at fault for your injuries, you may need to enlist the help of a Colorado injury attorney. They can review the cause of your accident and prove that the other person was at fault.

Comparative Negligence

However, you’ll also need to consider your own part in the accident. Colorado has a comparative negligence law, which means you could be found partially responsible for your accident.

Let’s say you were in a store, and you slipped and fell, suffering a concussion. The store is at fault for not putting a wet floor sign out, but the owner or manager may try to place part or all the blame on you. They may say you were looking at your phone at the time, and if you don’t fight back, your claim may be reduced by 20 percent, for example. In this case, you’ll only receive 80 percent of your compensation.

You could also lose your compensation if you’re found negligent. If you’re found more than 51 percent at fault for the injuries, your claim could be dismissed completely.
