How Long Do You Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia?

You have limited time to file a personal injury claim after. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the accident date. If you do not make one within this time frame, you will likely lose your right to compensation.

There are some exceptions to this rule. If an injury did not manifest until sometime after your accident, you have two years from the date you discovered it to file a claim. Additionally, should the at-fault party leave Georgia, the statute of limitations may be paused until they return.

What Is the Average Personal Injury Settlement?

In short, it varies depending on the nature of the accident and your injuries. 

Some of the factors that may affect the value of your claim include:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The cost of your medical treatment
  • The amount of time you missed work
  • The impact your injuries have on your ability to earn a future living
  • The at-fault party’s insurance policy limits

Our Cumming personal injury attorney can explain the potential value of your claim and work to get the maximum compensation. He and our office staff will not back down from a fight and will do everything we can to help you get the financial support you need to recover successfully.
