Summary

After serving in the U.S. Navy where I first became interested in becoming a lawyer, I worked in the Colorado Attorney General's Office where I prosecuted professional licensees for professional malpractice and negligence claims. I then became a Prosecutor in Hawaii where I prosecuted alleged criminals on Oahu. Afterwards I moved back to Denver where I now practice criminal, DUI/DUID and professional malpractice defense, I assist victims of motor vehicle accidents, and handle employee Worker's Compensation claims and draft Estate Planning documents for my clients.

Q. My wife was in a car accident in Jan 2020 where the other driver ran a red light and was cited. She hasn't worked since,
A: In addition to what Mr. Norton stated, your wife may have a two part claim. The 1st part being against the at fault party, wherein her claim must either be settled or a lawsuit filed within the 3 year Statute of Limitations (in Colo.) If she is able to resolve her initial claim for the at fault parties’ bodily injury policy limits with an okay from your auto carrier she then has an additional two years to settle the under-insured claim with her/your insurance. Thus, while it is preferable for your wife to get as close to pre-accident health before settling her claim with the at fault parties’ insurance it’s not absolutely necessary, especially if her injuries require her to have surgery and future medical care. It is important though that she be receiving treatment from a medical treatment provider who is experienced with trauma, which might not necessarily be her regular doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist. She may also need diagnostic testing and surgery to recover quality of life which some patients are reluctant to undergo.
Q. In Colorado if your boss physically attacks you while you are at work can you sue the company?
A: I agree totally with both of the earlier responses. Additionally, you should make some notes, as soon as possible, regarding the facts that lead up to and regarding the attack itself, i.e. words exchanged, body language, tone of voices, etc.. Memories, unfortunately fade over time for everyone. The notes can be bullet points, but with enough description to help jar your memory of what happened and the circumstances surrounding the event(s). This will also help you when you are talking to the police and/or to an employment attorney regarding the circumstances. Additionally, you should include the names or descriptions of any witnesses who observed the attack. If you have any injuries, including any bruising or marks on your body from the attack you should have someone else take photographs of your injuries.
