Is There a Time Limit for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in East Point, Georgia?
East Point has a two-year statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims. Any person in Georgia, who has been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, gets two years to sue the at-fault party. If the injured person doesn't file their claim within two years from the date the accident happened, they lose their right to sue.
However, there are exceptions to this rule. The deadline can be extended if:
The injured party was mentally incompetent when the accident happened,
The accident victim didn't know, nor did they have any basis of knowing that they have sustained an injury, and the negligent party’s action caused the injury,
The injured person was a minor when the accident happened, and

Evidence can help you determine liability for who caused the collision and the extent of your financial losses. With sufficient evidence, you can prove your personal injury case and secure maximum compensation and legal justice.

What Damages Can I Recover in Personal Injury Claims in Fulton County, Georgia?
There are three types of monetary damages you can recover in a physical injury claim:
Economic damages. These damages include your medical bills, lost income, property damage, loss of future earning capacity, and funeral and/or burial expenses. These damages are calculable, which means you can easily determine economic damages using your medical bills, medical records, and medical receipts.
Non-economic damages. These include damages for loss of companionship, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress. There is no exact dollar amount for these financial damages; they are subjective.
Punitive damages. These damages punish the careless party, hoping that person and/or entity won't engage in negligent behavior again. Punitive damages are rare, though our law firm has successfully recovered thousands of dollars of punitive damages for many accident victims over the years in Fulton County.
Further, it's crucial to note that Georgia is a comparative negligence state. Thus, the amount you can collect in monetary damages depends on your role in the accident that injured you. Thus, never admit liability: not at the actual scene of an accident, or when you were using a defective product, or if you suffered a work-related injury–never. Instead, contact an experienced accident attorney and he or she will advise you about your next steps of action, and which legal options are available to you.
