How Long Do I Have to Sue?


Georgia Law Practice Fighting For Justice and Fair Compensation

Whether you have been injured in a car wreck, a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, or suffered injury from a defective drug or product, there are certain prescribed time periods within which you must bring a lawsuit.  This time period is called the statute of limitations.

If you do not act quickly enough, you will lose your rights to seek compensation against the responsible party for your injuries.

The statute of limitations that applies to your specific circumstances will vary from state to state.  Even within a state, the controlling statute of limitations may differ depending upon your case.

Medical malpractice cases present an especially challenging situation as the controlling time limits can vary with respect to suits against physicians, private hospitals, and public hospitals.

The controlling statute of limitation may also vary if there are children involved.

Regardless of the facts of your situation, it is critical to seek the advice of an experienced lawyer, to be certain that your action is brought within the time period mandated by state law.  Contact the Georgia personal injury law firm today for a no cost consultation with one of our attorneys to discuss the facts of your case and to see how we can help.  (912) 264-6465
