When you incur a personal injury, there are a couple of options available regarding the way you want to handle your case. You can file a personal injury claim through the insurance company or the at-fault party, or you can file a personal injury lawsuit with a personal injury lawyer.
Some specific rules and guidelines must be adhered to when seeking compensation for your personal injury. The first thing to be aware of is that there is a statute of limitations involved in the filing of personal injury cases. In Georgia, the statute of limitations is two years, and the clock starts ticking the day you sustained your injury.
However, in some instances, the statute of limitations may be extended. For example, if the accidental injuries resulted in death, a spouse or loved one will have up to four years to file a claim.
