Georgia Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents

A statute of limitations is the time period during which a person has the ability to bring a claim against another person or entity for harm they have suffered. This time frame varies according to jurisdiction as well as the type of claim that is being made. In Georgia, pursuant to GA Code §9-3-33, the typical statute of limitations for most personal injury claims arising from car accidents is two years from the date of injury. Claims made outside this two year time frame are generally barred, meaning that the injured party is not able to recover for the damages that occurred.

There are some caveats to this rule, but the bottom line is to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after an accident occurs. It can take awhile for a Bainbridge injury and car accident attorney to gather the evidence needed to successfully prove your case, so the sooner you contact them for help the better support they can provide to your case. Waiting until the last minute before the statute of limitations expires can prove detrimental to your ability to recover the compensation that you are due.

In Georgia, the law states the person who caused the accident must compensate the person they hit for personal injuries and property damage. Our attorneys at Merritt & Merritt Law Firm will provide you with the best legal counsel possible.  For all our case we formulate a strategy to win the case which includes reviewing evidence, going to the accident scene, and thoroughly reviewing the medical records to determine the extent of your injuries.

Contact the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm at 229-469-8266 or 1-800-738-WE-WIN to arrange a meeting with one of our attorneys. We look forward to helping you with your case. If you have further questions, visit us at
