Georgia Personal Injury Laws

If you are injured in Georgia, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Since “negligence” is the legal basis for most claims, you (the plaintiff) must prove that the at-fault party (the defendant) failed to exercise reasonable care to minimize the risk of inflicting injury on others.

To be successful in a personal injury case, you must prove the all following elements:

1.) The defendant had a duty of care.

2.) The defendant breached that duty of care by negligence or violating the law.

3.) The defendant’s breach caused the accident and your injuries.

4.) You suffered damages as a result of the defendant’s negligent actions.

However, if you share some blame for the accident, Georgia follows a “modified comparative negligence” rule, which means your total award will be reduced by your share of liability for causing the accident. For example, if the court awards you with a $100,000, but the jury also finds you 25 percent at fault for the accident, then you can only keep 75 percent or $75,000 in total damages.

Common damages in a personal injury lawsuit include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
