Georgia Personal Injury
In the state of Georgia, an injured party has two years from the date of the accident that caused the injury to file a lawsuit. For injury claims against a city or county, the statute of limitations is six months, and for claims against the state, it is two years.
Georgia follows a modified comparative fault rule regarding personal injury cases, meaning that if you’re found to be partly or mostly at fault for your own injuries, your damage award may be be reduced or eliminated entirely. Georgia courts are required to apply the comparative fault rule in cases where both parties have been found to share the fault.
