Liability Claims

Liability claims arise when a citizen or other private entity believes that a State employee or department is responsible for monetary damages the citizen experienced. The loss arises from an accident or other unexpected event, and causes an injury or property damage that costs the citizen a monetary loss. In Colorado, there is only one method of filing a claim with the state. The citizen or private entity must mail a written claim to the Attorney General's office.
