Hiking, Rock Climbing, Camping and the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act: Who Should Pay When Someone Gets Hurt?

The Colorado Governmental Immunity Act (CGIA), CRS ยงยง24-10-101 et seq., bars lawsuits against Colorado governmental agencies and their employees unless rare circumstances exist. Even when injured victims are allowed to move forward with a lawsuit, damages are limited by statute. There are two schools of thought on the efficacy of the CGIA. One view is that the state provides essential public services that would be disrupted if all lawsuits were allowed to go forward, and the "taxpayers would ultimately bear the fiscal burdens of unlimited liability." The other view is that a denial or reduction of the ability of injured victims to recover monetarily leads to unfair results.
