There are three categories of active membership in the Colorado Bar Association, based on the number of years a member has been licensed to practice law in any jurisdiction, not just in Colorado. The Senior category is for attorneys who have been licensed more than 8 years. The Intermediate category is for attorneys licensed more than 4 years but less than 8 years. The Junior category is for attorneys who have been licensed less than 4 years.

It is important to remember that the number of years is based on and attorney’s first date of admission, which may or may not be in Colorado. For example, if an attorney was first licensed to practice in Kansas in 1990 and then in Colorado in 1995, that attorney would be a Senior member.

All Senior, Intermediate and Junior CBA members who live in Colorado must also belong to at least one of the 27 local bar associations across the state. This is required to maintain CBA membership.

The statute that has been in place in Colorado, known as "No-Fault" has been repealed. In the past, this statute has allowed for individuals that had been in a vehicular accident to automatically receive benefits from the other driver's insurance company. Due to this repeal, this is no longer the case. Colorado personal injury lawyers need to be aware of this new repeal due to the fact that it may affect the damages their client's receive.

Under the Colorado "No-Fault" law, a standard policy would allow for up to $50,000 in medical bills. Currently any medical bills are to be paid by the other driver's insurance company up to $25,000 and any costs after that will be taken from the injured party's health benefits.

However, if the other driver is found legally liable, the costs that the injured party has paid can be recovered from the driver or the driver's insurance company. These costs can be recovered either at the time the claim is settled or when a verdict is determined. The Colorado personal injury lawyer that is working for the injured person will be a big help in recovering these costs.

The purpose of damages awarded is to get the injured person back to the form they were in before the accident occurred. This includes medical bills, permanent injury, physical impairment, pain, suffering, and loss of quality of life. The damages awarded are not considered limitless and do have boundaries. The cap is generally $366,250. These damages can be doubled by the court under the term "non-economic damages." If the case is for medical malpractice the cap is usually $250,000.

The State of Colorado is hoping that the repeal for the "No-Fault" law will help prevent plaintiffs that want to sue for amounts that are far beyond the scope of their injuries. Colorado personal injury lawyers have sometimes sued for these amounts on the demands of their clients. By adding the inclusion that any costs over the amount of $25,000 can be recovered at a later date, it still provides plaintiffs that have true claims to recover any damages that they are entitled.
