The statute of limitations is the law that
tells you how long you have to file a lawsuit for harms and losses caused by the wrongdoing
of the person or company. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for
a wrongful death, or personal injury case is usually two years from the date that the
harm or death is caused. For example, if you are injured in a wreck
that occurred on May 1, 2019, you have until April 30, 2021 to file a lawsuit to recover
the harms and losses caused. This is a very important law. If the lawsuit is not timely filed, following
the statute of limitations, your case is time barred. It is forever lost. It’s like you never had a case. I recommend that you consult and hire us at
Sherrod & Bernard when injured so that the case may be evaluated, processed, and a lawsuit
filed long before there is a statute of limitations issue.
