Timeline to File a GA Motorcycle Crash Case

Motorcycle CrashAfter a Georgia motorcycle crash, time is of the essence in more ways than one. Motorcyclists should report the accident to law enforcement, seek medical attention, collect evidence from the scene, and notify their insurance company as soon as possible.

However, these aren’t the only aspects of a Georgia motorcycle accident case that require haste.

Riders hurt in wrecks caused by another person or entity’s negligence may be preoccupied with devastating injuries, and understandably so. Unfortunately, they have a limited time to take legal action to pursue compensation for injuries and other damages. In most cases, motorcyclists have just two years from the date of the crash to file personal injury lawsuits.

Two years may seem like a long time, but it can pass quickly, especially when people are focused on recovering from their physical injuries. Once the two-year time limit expires, victims no longer have grounds to pursue a legal remedy. If they attempt to file a lawsuit after the deadline, it can be dismissed outright.

It’s important to realize someone doesn’t have to miss the filing deadline in order to do serious damage to a case. Delaying action, even for a relatively short time, can have unintended consequences. For example, essential evidence can be lost, contaminated, or destroyed; or witnesses can move without updating their contact information, forget the details of what they saw, or even die.
