Personal Injury FAQ’s
Often times injured individuals come to us seeking legal guidance and advice. They’ve come the right spot. Below are some of the most common questions we hear as we meet with new clients
How Long do I Have to Report My Injury?
Georgia law dictates the statute of limitations for personal injury type cases is a two year window. What does this mean? An injured person must file his or her lawsuit within that two years after the date of the incident. An example would be if a car or trucking collision on July 1, the injured person must bring suit no later than the first of July two years later.
Who Files the Lawsuit When Someone is Killed in the Auto or Trucking Accident
If a negligent act or accident caused a wrongful death, the representative of the decedent’s estate is the person legally allowed to bring suit on behalf of the decedent for medical bills, funeral bills, and pain/suffering. This person is usually known as the Administrator or Executor of the estate. The decedent’s family members (first, a spouse and if none, the children) are usually the ones who bring suit for the wrongful death portion of the lawsuit, which allows recovery for the “full value of the life of the decedent.” Often, the representative of the estate is the decedent’s spouse or one of his/her children.
