Statutes of Limitation in Georgia Civil Cases

After someone has caused you harm, either financial or physical, you only have a certain amount of time to actually create a lawsuit in pursuit of damages. Each state has its own set of rules and regulations regarding this time limit, which is known as a statute of limitations. If the statute of limitations expires for your case type, you can still file a lawsuit but the defendant has the right to ask the court to throw it out, which will be done before any review.

In Georgia, statutes of limitations that may apply to your case are:

  • 2 years for personal injury
  • 2 years for financial loss due to fraud
  • 1 year for libel or slander
  • 4 years for damage to personal property
  • 2 years for medical malpractice (possible extension to 5 years)

When you are in doubt, it is smart to speak with your Atlanta litigation attorney and ask them if your case’s statute of limitations is drawing near. Although it is important to fully prepare your case for court and not rush into any decisions, sometimes it is in your best interest to file a claim quickly before the statute ends.
