This blog article will provide a general summary of law applicable to claims involving personal injuries. NOTE: every case needs to be evaluated based on its unique facts and circumstances, in light of the applicable law to determine the exact legal time deadline(s) that apply. You should not act upon this article without seeking the advice of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Upon review of your potential case, your attorney can determine exactly how much time you have to hold the negligent party responsible for causing your automobile accident injuries. Under Georgia law, as a general rule, you have two years from the date an automobile accident or other type of incident to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. However, in cases involving government entities of a defendant, even shorter deadlines may apply. Alternatively, some cases allow longer time frames, such as when the injured person is a minor.
