Take Immediate Action If You’ve Been Injured By Someone Else’s Negligence or Intentional Behavior
In Georgia, a Statute of Limitations is imposed on all personal injury case filings. A Statute of Limitations is defined as a time limit. The Statute of Limitations in Georgia to fil a personal injury case is usually two years.
That two year deadline usually starts from the date of your accident or whatever the event was that resulted in you being injured. The major importance for setting a time limit is to secure that the evidence to support your claim has not been corrupted or compromised. Another reason is to is discourage holding the threat of a lawsuit too long after the disputed event has occurred.
This time limit is strictly-enforced. If you do not file a personal injury case before the statute of limitations runs out, you’re essentially giving up your legal right to ask the Georgia Civil court system to award you financial compensation for your injury-related medical costs and property and earning losses.
An experienced Personal Injury Attorney, familiar with Georgia’s official state codes, can best advise you as to the exact statute of limitations that apply to your specific case. If the statute of limitations relating to your case has elapsed, your Personal Injury Attorney will inform you of any exceptions or extenuating circumstances that would legally allow you to still file a lawsuit. If the circumstances surrounding your case is applicable to extending the statute of limitations deadline, your Personal Injury Attorney will be able then to file your particular case in Georgia even though the statute of limitations deadline has been missed.
One example for being able to file a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has run out concerns health issues caused by long-term exposure to undetected toxic pollutions in work environments.
There are many other options available for personal injury cases that aren’t discovered until the time has passed the statute of limitations deadline.
