The submission for deadlines was Thursday and the governor's office said 52 claims, including three duplicates, have been received so far. Claims postmarked by Thursday will also be accepted.
Twelve people were killed and at least 58 were injured when a gunman opened fire at a showing in Aurora of the new Batman movie on July 20.
Claims received so far come from families of victims who were killed, those who were paralysed or suffered brain injuries, and those who had overnight hospital stays.
Mediator Ken Feinberg is determining how much each claimant will receive. The Aurora Victim Relief Fund has collected more than $5m (€3.85m) from donors.
