Personal Injury Laws in Georgia
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have one of the following legal theories applied to your injury claim:
- Comparative Fault: Georgia is a modified comparative fault state. This means that the damages you recover may be reduced or even eliminated altogether if you were partly or mostly at fault for the accident. The amount taken away from the claimant’s recovered damages is directly proportional to his/her percentage of fault.
- Strict Liability: In Georgia, a dog owner is held “strictly liable” for any damages his/her dog causes. This means that if an attack occurs, the owner is liable to the victim, regardless of the dog’s past behavior.
- Auto Accident Claims: After a car accident, you may file a third-party claim against the liable driver’s insurance company or take them to court by bringing forward a lawsuit. If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, and you cannot locate or identify the liable driver, you may file a claim with your own insurance company if your policy includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
Whatever the case, it is best to consult with an attorney before making a decision on how to approach damage recovery.
Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury in Georgia
A time limit, or “statute of limitations,” applies to all personal injury claims filed in Georgia’s civil court system. In most cases, the limit is two years from the date of the accident. It is crucial to abide by the statute of limitations for your claim; if you fail to file your lawsuit before the window for your case closes, you will completely forfeit your right to pursue compensation. Don’t let this happen to you. Contact a trusted Atlanta personal injury lawyer ASAP. The sooner, the better.
