Side Impact Collisions
A side impact collision in Colorado can occur when one driver hits another driver in the side of their vehicle. Also known as a T-bone accident, these types of collision most often happen when one driver runs through a four-way intersection on a yellow or red light. If you have been injured a side impact collision, it is very important to immediately contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who will make every effort to help you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Under section 13-80-101 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, an injured party may be prohibited from filing a lawsuit for injuries and losses sustained from a side impact car accident after a certain period of time has passed. Also known as a statute of limitations (SOL), this time period prevents the injured party from filing a lawsuit for any damages after three years, which is the SOL for most car accident injuries in Colorado. Since this is a very short period of time, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after you have been injured in a side impact collision crash to ensure your claim is not barred.
