Every profession, including law, medicine, accounting, etc., has a set of standards or protocols that govern the conduct and performance of practitioners. Determining whether or not a practitioner has been negligent and should face a malpractice lawsuit can be challenging. Essentially, an attorney will examine your case and look to see if there are the appropriate elements of negligence in place, which will vary depending on the situation at hand.
Typically, this involves determining whether or not the defendant owed a legal duty of care to the plaintiff and whether or not the defendant breached this duty of care and caused some type of injury or harm. If that is the case, and the damages can be expressed with a monetary value, then the claim will likely be valid. However, it is strongly encouraged that you work with an attorney to help make these decisions. You may have a claim and not even realize it.
When working to understand how long you have to file a professional malpractice claim, it is important to determine what type of claim you have. These cases are complex, and we always encourage you to work with an attorney before moving forward with your claim or deciding not to pursue your claim.
In general, terms of any type of professional malpractice in Colorado will have two years from the day the incident occurred to file their claim. This is true for medical malpractice as well as other types of malpractice that can occur. Individuals who fail to file their claim within this appropriate timeframe risk their case being thrown out and becoming unable to recover compensation.
There are various exceptions to this two-year statute of limitations. For example, if there is a minor victim involved, they may have extended time frames to file their claim. If the malpractice is hidden by fraud or deceit, or if the perpetrator of the malpractice leaves the state, the statute of limitations will likely be extended. However, if malpractice is committed by a government employee or entity, the time frame may be shorter.
If you or somebody you care about is a victim of professional malpractice in Colorado, we encourage you to reach out to a skilled attorney immediately. A Colorado professional malpractice attorney will have extensive experience handling these complex claims. They will be able to use the entirety of their resources to fully investigate every aspect of the incident and help determine liability.
Not only will an attorney investigate the incident, but they will work diligently to calculate your total expected losses and handle all negotiations with other parties involved. In the event insurance carriers or at-fault parties refuse to offer a fair settlement amount, a professional malpractice attorney in Colorado will file a civil personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
