What is the statute of limitations for injury claims in Georgia?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 2 years from the date of when the accident occurred. Any legal action must be taken within that time frame – should you fail to file a claim before the deadline, you may be giving up the right to have your case heard in court. While two years sounds like sufficient time, it’s recommended that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after being injured.
How is a settlement reached in a personal injury case?
When the defendant agrees to pay a specified amount in order to drop the case that is when a settlement is reached. The reality of these types of cases is that most of them end in settlements – typically a settlement will be reached before a suit is even filed. There are several factors that are taken into consideration to calculate a settlement amount, all of which vary depending on the details of the claim. Because of this, it’s difficult to accurately estimate an exact average of settlements. Some factors that can affect a settlement amount include the seriousness of the injury, the medical costs, the defendant’s assets, and any pain and suffering associated with the injury.
