Time Limitations Apply

While it is not imperative to file a claim for damages immediately after an injury accident involving a Tesla, it is important that you not wait too long to take that step. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing motor vehicle personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. In certain cases, this deadline may be sooner, or it may be extended. Your Tesla accident lawyer will work closely with you to help you understand applicable filing deadlines, so you can preserve your right to demand compensation.

Our law firm will work diligently to help uncover evidence to support your claim. Such evidence is typically easier to identify and secure when a claim is started shortly after the injury accident occurs. For these reasons, it’s best to consult with a Tesla accident lawyer as soon as you feel up to doing so.

Determining Liability

In some Tesla accidents, one driver bears sole responsibility for victims’ injuries. In other cases, especially those involving multiple vehicles, Tesla may be responsible. Your Van Sant Law attorney understands Tesla’s Autopilot feature well, including its requirements for active driver supervision. We will use this knowledge to help build the strongest possible case for you and will carefully evaluate the facts and circumstances to identify all liable parties.
