Recovering Truck Accident Compensation in Georgia | Statute of Limitations
To have a successful case, you need to bring your claim or settle it in civil court within the given amount of time. In Georgia, your given amount of time (or statute of limitations) is two years from the date of the truck accident. That means you are given a deadline in which to either bring your claim or have it settled. If you wait past the two-year deadline, you lose your right to compensation. We suggest hiring an attorney as soon as possible so that they have as much time as possible to build you a strong case.
Recovering Truck Accident Compensation in Georgia | Comparative Negligence
Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state which means that you can collect compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident. You will however have a reduced award. If you have been deemed 10% at fault for the accident, then your compensation award will be reduced by 10% which is something we try to keep from happening to you. If you are mostly at fault, then you will be barred from receiving compensation. Our Atlanta truck accident lawyer will do everything they can to get you the fullest and fairest amount of compensation.
