How Long Do I Have to File My Case?

Generally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a case for personal injury. If a minor child was involved in the accident then that child has a longer period to file their case. Recently, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled that the time period to bring file a personal injury case can be extended beyond two years depending upon the date of the injury and resolution of the traffic ticket. This new law provides injured victims additional time to select the proper lawyer.
