You or a family member have
been injured in Georgia and you’re wondering how long do I have
to act on my claim before I lose my rights. That’s called the statute of limitation. Keep watching this video to learn more
about how long you have to act before you lose your rights
forever in the state of Georgia. Hi, I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer
here with Spaulding Injury Law. Thank you for watching this video. Let me tell you a little bit about the statute of
limitation here in Georgia on injury claims. The typical statute of limitation is two
years for almost every injury claim that you can think of except for
medical malpractice claims. That has a separate statute
of limitation often times. So, you got typically two years from the
anniversary of the incident that led to injury. Now, you need to keep in mind
that why this is so important is because if you don’t act
by that two year deadline you forever lose your rights
to pursue your injury claim meaning you won’t get payment
back for your medical bills, your lost wages, your pain and suffering. Now, what do you have to do? That’s also very important. Within that two year period
you have to physically file suit against the at-fault party or parties. If you have multiple people involved and you only sue one you forever
lose your rights against the others. So, at the end of the day, it’s typically two years and it means you need to file a law suit in court
to preserve your rights within that time frame. Thank you for watching this video. If you have any questions or concerns
