How long after an accident do I have before I need to file a lawsuit?

Each case is different and must be evaluated on the facts of the case. In certain situations, notices or filings must be made with a governmental entity within a few months of the incident to preserve the right to later file a claim. In general, Georgia law has a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury actions. To best protect your rights, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure that you do not miss any deadlines imposed by the law.
