Under Georgia law, you will have two years to either reach a settlement of your car accident injury claim or file a lawsuit. So, you don’t want to delay taking action.
This is called the statute of limitations. In some cases, the statute of limitations may be either shorter or longer than two years depending on who has been involved in the crash. O.C.G.A. 9-3-31.
It is important to keep in mind that a lawyer will have to conduct a thorough investigation of your case, review applicable insurance policies and consult with experts to determine the full extent of your losses. The attorney in your case will need sufficient time to get this work done. Don’t delay in hiring a personal injury lawyer. Many reputable law firms will not accept a case if they are contacted shortly before the statute of limitation is set to expire, due to the inability to fully investigate your case before time runs out.
