Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
The Statute of Limitations for False Imprisonment is 1 year under Colorado Law. Sometimes the Statute of Limitation may be tolled (delayed) for a period of time. You have to demonstrate that you did not have the ability to bring a case even though they are aware of an injury or damages and that fairness dictates that the Statute of Limitations be tolled. Tolling is normally permitted where the plaintiff can show that he was disabled or lacked competnecy or was precluded from filing for reasons beyond the plaintiff's control.
It is a risky gamble to assert that the Statute be tolled. Your are better off filing to save the date. You want to meet with a personal injury attorney to see if they can file within the time frame for you. The Courts do not appear to be fond of Tolling.
