What are the Statute of Limitations in Georgia?

After an accident, you have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia.

Have you been injured in an accident in Georgia because of someone else’s negligence? If so, you only have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. The two-year time limit is called the Georgia statute of limitations. If you fail to file a lawsuit within the two-year time period, you are no longer allowed to claim compensation for the injuries you sustained. If it has been close to two years since you were in an accident, and you have not filed a lawsuit, it is best to contact a Georgia personal injury attorney right away. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can file a lawsuit on your behalf and help make sure your claim for damages is filed within your time limit.
