Car Accident Lawyers for Savannah
The Clock Is Ticking for Your Claim
All types of legal claims are subject to legal time deadlines, also known as “statutes of limitations”
If you do not file your claim before the legal deadlines that apply to your case, you are giving up your rights to ever receive compensation for that accident and injury. According to Georgia code [O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33], the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Georgia is generally 2 years from the date of the motor vehicle accident, but there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline. For example, sometimes deadlines are extended when a minor is involved.
The legal time deadlines involved in your case are subject to state and local laws, and vary widely depending on the facts and circumstances of your particular situation. A Montlick personal injury lawyer can examine your unique accident during your free consultation, and advise you on which legal time deadlines apply to you.

Other Deadlines to Consider
In addition to Georgia’s legal time deadlines, there are several other critical reasons for not delaying in seeking legal advice and assistance.
Many injured people are surprised to learn that their own insurance policies can contain valuable insurance coverage, such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) or medical payments coverage (MedPay). It is critical to keep in mind that insurance policies typically have timely notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, can result in the loss of valuable compensation and benefits.
In addition to legal notice requirements and mandatory time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without hesitation. For example, with the passage of time, accident witnesses can become difficult to locate or they might forget important details. Other times, critical evidence can disappear or be destroyed (it is standard for many security cameras to auto-delete after a period of hours or days).
Our legal team takes all steps to meet the many necessary time deadlines on behalf of our clients, and makes sure that all essential evidence is collected and preserved when appropriate.
The Value of a Case
Georgia car accident law generally permits personal injury victims of accidents to recover monetary damages from the individual or company responsible for their injuries and damages when someone has been negligent. Negligent parties can include individuals, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, public utilities, and other business organizations, either acting together with each other or alone.
Our hardworking attorneys pursue all forms of financial damages that our clients are entitled to receive under Georgia law. The value of an accident injury or wrongful death claim depends on numerous factors, including:
- the strength of legal liability
- the facts and circumstances of the incident
- the strength of the applicable law and evidence
- the extent of a client’s injuries
- whether someone is temporarily or permanently disabled
- the venue or locality where a claim must be brought
- the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life
- the extent of pain and suffering

Types of Compensation
The exact damages that are available to you will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case. However, some examples of the types of damages our personal injury lawyers have recovered on behalf of our Georgia clients include compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage, including damage to motor vehicles and personal property
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive Damages if the defendant’s conduct rises to the level of gross negligence
- Loss of companionship, consortium and guidance
- Wrongful death damages (when applicable)
Wrongful Death Claims
In cases of the tragic death of a family member, the surviving family member/s may be entitled to compensation for what is deemed the “full value of the life of the victim,” burial costs, medical expenses incurred prior to death, and more.
We know terms like the “value” of a life can feel extremely impersonal, even cold after your loss. However, these are the terms the courts and the insurance companies will use when determining your claim’s value. In fact, part of our job is to humanize you and your loved one to the companies making these judgements. We want them to see your loved one as the full person they were before they were unnecessarily taken from you, and help insurance adjusters or juries see the full impact of your loss.
How Much Is Your Claim Worth?
The amount of monetary compensation an accident injury claimant recovers in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances of the accident and the facts of a given case. As such, every traffic accident injury claim is unique.
Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family will recover from a car accident claim is not possible at the beginning of your case. However, our experienced attorneys are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted accident case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we understand the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have evaluated the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.
