Reckless Driver Accidents
A Colorado reckless driver accident generally occurs when one or more drivers are operating their vehicle recklessly, while distracted, or in a way that blatantly disregards the safety of others or property around them. If you have been injured in a car accident with a reckless driver, it is very important to immediately contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who will make every effort to help you obtain just compensation for your injuries.
According to section 13-80-101 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, an injured party may be barred from filing a lawsuit after a certain period of time has passed for injuries and other losses they sustained as a result of a reckless driver car accident. This time period is commonly known as a statute of limitations (SOL) and is limited to three years for most personal injury accidents involving motor vehicles in Colorado. Since this is a very short time period, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your car accident with a reckless driver in order to ensure your claim is not barred by a statute of limitations.
