      What To Do If I Am In A Car Accident?

      If you are involved in a car accident, some of the initial questions to ask about the other driver are:

      • Was the other driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
      • Did the other driver leave the scene of the accident?
      • Was the other driver texting or talking on the phone?
      • Was the other driver speeding or recklessly driving?
      • Was the other driver distracted in any other way?
      • Was the other driver driving while he was on the job?

      What Should I Do After A Hit & Run Accident?

      If you have been in a hit and run, do the following as soon as possible:

      • Check if you have been injured and render aid
      • Call 911 to request emergency medical services if needed
      • Remain at the scene of the accident
      • Document the accident and any property damage with pictures
      • Write down as many details as you can remember about the car that struck you
      • Call the police and cooperate with them while they file the accident report

      Georgia Car Accident Statute of Limitations

      In the state of Georgia, just like in many other jurisdictions, there are specific time limits within which individuals can file a legal claim after a car accident. These time limits are known as the statute of limitations and they play a crucial role in the legal process, ensuring that cases are resolved in a timely manner.

      Two-Year Statute of Limitations

      In Georgia, the statute of limitations for car accidents is two years. This means that if you have been injured in a car accident or have suffered property damage as a result of a car accident, you generally have a two-year window in which to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. It's important to note that this two-year period typically begins on the date of the accident.

      Why the Statute of Limitations Matters

      The statute of limitations serves several important purposes. First and foremost, it helps ensure that legal claims are filed promptly after an accident, which can lead to more accurate and reliable evidence. It also helps prevent cases from lingering indefinitely, promoting the timely resolution of disputes.

      If you fail to file a lawsuit within the two-year statute of limitations, the court is likely to dismiss your case. This means you would lose the opportunity to seek compensation for your injuries or damages through the legal system. It's crucial to be aware of these time limits and take action accordingly.

      Consult with an Attorney

      If you've been involved in a car accident in Georgia and are considering legal action, it's advisable to consult with a qualified attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you understand your rights, evaluate the specifics of your case, and ensure that you file your lawsuit within the appropriate statute of limitations.
