Do Not Put Your Right to Compensation at Risk
Georgia imposes a time restriction on filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused your accident. If the filing of your lawsuit does not comply with the state’s timeline, it could put your ability to recover your financial expenses and losses at risk.
You might not be able to file your lawsuit at all if you do not file it during the two-year timeline OCGA §9-3-33 typically allows. If you do manage to file your lawsuit after the statutory filing deadline has expired, you may still have a difficult time. We can help you avoid the risk of losing your right to sue by ensuring your lawsuit is filed in a timely fashion.
