How Long Will My Case Take?

What is the Statute of Limitation for Car Accident Cases?

The state of Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations on car accident claims. This means that you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. If you fail to do so you will lose your right to compensation no matter how severe your accident was. If you would like to file a claim to recover for damage done to your vehicle the statute of limitations is four years.

How to Establish Negligence in Your Case

Every driver must uphold a duty of reasonable care, or they may be found in violation and can be held liable for any negligent actions. While a person is operating a motor vehicle, they must:

  • Drive at a reasonable speed
  • Keep a proper lookout on the road
  • Maintain control of the automobile
  • Use the car's equipment properly
If a driver fails to do any/all of these things and causes an accident, they can and should be held liable for their negligence. Depending on your case, an experienced from Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. can also subpoena certain documents needed for court.

Should I Speak to my Insurance Adjuster First?

After a serious car accident, you might assume that your insurance adjuster wants to help you obtain the money you deserve for your injuries. In reality, your insurance company wants to avoid paying for your injury. They will often offer you the lowest amount of money possible to ensure that their bottom line is not affected by the accident.

The following instructions should always be kept in mind when dealing with the insurance company after an accident:

  • Never make statements that admit fault without first speaking to a lawyer
  • Never sign paper work without first speaking to an experienced attorney
  • Avoid speaking with an adjuster from the other driver's insurance company
  • If you must speak with an insurance company, only talk about the facts of the accident so that the insurance company can draw a rational conclusion from your statements

While you should report the accident to your insurance immediately, you should never make any statements regarding the accident to the other person's insurance company without a lawyer present. Insurance companies are trained to find ways to pay you less than what you deserve, and if you say anything wrong, you may not receive the amount of money to which you are entitled. You can find more helpful information about car accidents on our FAQ.
