Personal injury damages from State of Colorado

Posted by: May 06, 2013By Brian Stutheit

Senate Bill 13-023, effective July 2013, increases the limit on personal injury damages which may be recovered from public entities and public employees.  The increase for any injury to one person in any single occurrence jumps from the sum of one hundred fifty thousand to three hundred fifty thousand dollars.

Public entities and public employees means means the state, county, city and county, municipality, school district, special improvement district, and every other kind of district  created under Colorado law.  It does not mean the federal government, or federal employees.
