As I discussed in the last blog post, as an experienced Georgia personal injury lawyer, I have represented many clients injured in automobile accidents. While every case is different and no two clients are alike, I am writing a series of blog posts to address those questions which come up most often. Knowing the answers to these common automobile accident questions should enable those injured in Georgia car accidents to be better informed about the litigation process. The questions are in bold and are followed by the answers:
How long do I have to bring a lawsuit for injuries I suffered in an car accident? Under Georgia law, you must file a lawsuit for personal injuries sustained in an automobile accident within two (2) years from the date of the accident. Interestingly, claims for loss of consortium (i.e., a spouse is entitled to fully recover for the loss of the injured spouse’s marital relations such as companionship and sexual relations) must be brought within four (4) years.
As experienced injury lawyers, we at Robert J. Fleming, P.C. have had great successes helping seriously injured clients fully recover for damages they have suffered in automobile accidents. If you or a family member has been seriously injured and would like to discuss your case, please contact us for a confidential and thorough case evaluation.
