How Much Time Do I Have To Pursue My Claim?

If you are injured, you are limited by a statute of limitations to a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit. These statutes for injury claims differ depending on the state. Under Georgia law, personal injury claims must generally be brought within two years of the date of the injury. While there are some instances in which that deadline may be extended, you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney soon after your incident in order to be sure your rights are protected. Some claims, such as those against a state, county, or municipality, require notice of the claim within six months or one year, depending upon the entity. Furthermore, many insurance policies require prompt notice of a potential claim.

Unfortunately, many victims are misled by otherwise friendly insurance adjusters who promise fair treatment but are then consistently delayed in resolving the claim. DO NOT WAIT! Insurance companies and their adjusters are trained and paid to resolve your claim for as little as possible. Remember, they do not have your best interest at heart.
