Georgia Statute of Limitations Georgia Accident Law
Georgia has a “statute of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. The deadline ultimately depends on the injuries suffered and the type of case you need filed. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. The injuries that were acquired during the accident must be brought within two years as an injury claim. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. Filing for a lawsuit for vehicle damage requires you to act within four years to have the case processed. The state follows a modified “comparative fault”, which is for a situation that more than one person is partially, or completely at fault for the accident. Since you can recover against any party that was more at-fault than you for personal injury lawsuit, your damages will be reduced by a percentage that goes along with your share of liability. Lastly, you are not entitled to recover anything if you fault in the accident meets or exceeds 50 percent.
