Colorado Wrongful Death Attorney Attorney

Why Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim?

Losing a loved one as a result of someone else’s careless decisions is never easy, especially if the loss could have possibly been prevented. In addition to the grief and devastation, the death of a family member could also lead to financial stresses that impact those who relied on the family member for financial support. 

Fortunately, Colorado courts have given the public the ability to file a legal action against the person or entity that caused the death. The most common wrongful death claims result from motor vehicle accidents, drunk driving accidents, motorcycle accidents, and trucking accidents.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Colorado?

Colorado laws clarify who may initiate a wrongful death case and when they may do so. According to C.R.S. 13-21-201, generally, the spouse is the only individual who may submit a wrongful death claim within one year of a loved one’s death. However, in the second year after the death, the spouse or the children (or both) can file the claim. If the deceased is not married and doesn’t have any children, then the deceased’s parents can file the claim.

When Should I File a Claim?

Bear in mind that wrongful death lawsuits in Colorado are subject to a time limit of when you can file the claim, which is called the statute of limitations. Here, the spouse, children, or parents have a two-year statute of limitations from the date of death to bring a wrongful death claim.
