Filing a Claim

Important

These instructions are for filing a claim through Risk Management only. If you wish to preserve your right to sue the city of Aurora and/or any of its employees, you must comply with the provisions of the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act generally, C.R.S. Section 24-10-101, et seq. and specifically with the notice provision contained at C.R.S. Section 24-10-109. If you have any questions pertaining to the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act, you must contact a private attorney as we are not permitted by law to give legal advice. If you do not receive a response from Risk Management within 90 days, the claim is presumed denied.

If you believe that Aurora is responsible to reimburse you for damages, you may file a claim with Risk Management. In order to consider your claim, Risk Management will need the following information in writing:

  • Police case number (if applicable)

  • Description of what occurred
  • The amount of damages resulting from the claim

Please also note if you have notified any city departments, such as Police, Public Works, etc.
