Each state’s statute of limitations is different, so it’s important to know the laws in your state. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury is two years from the day of the accident. Even if you weren’t aware of the injuries until a year and a half later, you still only have six months left of the statute of limitations before it can no longer be heard in court.

These limitations are why we recommend that all victims of an accident seek medical attention as soon as possible. If immediate attention is not possible, it’s important to see a medical doctor as soon as you can, preferably within 72 hours of the accident.
