Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage in Georgia
Georgia requires drivers to carry a liability car insurance policy that will cover the injuries and damages suffered by victims of a collision you cause up to the policy limits. However, this does not mean that everyone has the required coverage. There are few things more frustrating than learning the other driver doesn’t have coverage.
Your Insurance Might Aid You After an Accident
Luckily, you may have coverage that will step in and help. According to the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, the Georgia General Assembly passed changes to the state’s automobile insurance statutes that require drivers to opt out of uninsured motorist coverage. This is known as “Uninsured Motorist Coverage-Added on to At-Fault Liability Limits.”
This law says that you must reject uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in writing, or it may come with your liability policy. Unless you took action to reject this additional coverage, you could call on it after your accident.
This policy may allow you to file a claim to recover compensation for your injuries and property damages caused by the uninsured motorist who hit you up to your policy limits. This law is codified under O.C.G.A. § 33-7-11.

Statute of Limitations on Civil Lawsuits Following a Car Crash in Georgia
Under O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, a general two-year statute of limitations applies to personal injury lawsuits in Georgia. If you wait too long and allow this deadline to pass in your case before you take legal action, it could mean that your lawsuit gets dismissed.
