Personal injuries are when a serious injury happens and questions arise. Some of the things that could be questioned that have happened to you or a loved one are medical treatments, insurance, damage to you or a loved one, or liability on a premise or with a produce. Personal injuries happen when there is a negligent party and someone acted illegally or irresponsibly, which caused the accident. To give you a good example personal injuries happen when a surgery goes wrong, a car accident occurs, an event happens in a nursing home, or a product is harmful. There are certain statutes of limitations that need to be taken into consideration depending on what type of personal injury was sustained. For instance, if you were in a car accident, you have three years to make an injury claim.
When it comes to being in a car accident in Colorado, there is a no serious injury threshold, which means that you are able to file a liability claim against the other driver. Colorado is known as a fault state, which means that before action can be taken, an insurance adjuster needs to determine who is at fault.
