The Law Gives You Two Years to File a Civil Lawsuit
Atlanta’s statute of limitations outlines how long you have to file a jet ski accident lawsuit. You generally have two years to file a lawsuit. When the two-year period begins will depend on when you were injured or your loved one passed away, per OCGA §9-3-33.
Negotiating with the insurer, finding evidence, and talking to witnesses does not extend the statute of limitations. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the two-year deadline, you could limit your financial recovery options.
The American Bar Association (ABA) says that you could be barred from seeking compensation altogether.

The Possible Trajectory of Your Personal Injury Case
If this is your first time pursuing compensation, that is perfectly fine with us. We will give you all the information you need to make educated decisions regarding your circumstances.
When you partner with Kaine Law, we will take the following steps to build your case:
- Uncover evidence. We will use various pieces of information to prove that you were hurt in a jet ski accident. This will also give us insight into who should pay for your losses.
- File your claim. Once we have enough evidence, we will file your claim with the liable insurer. Depending on their response, we may negotiate a settlement or move forward with litigation.
- File your lawsuit. If we decide that a lawsuit is necessary for your situation, we will abide by all filing deadlines and courtroom procedures. Once your case reaches this point, the settlement amount will be determined by a judge or jury. However, even while we advocate for your rights in court, we will continue negotiating with the insurer for a settlement.
Because every case comes with its own sets of challenges and obligations, your case could have a different trajectory than the elements we listed above. A jet ski accident lawyer from Kaine Law serving Atlanta will come to the negotiating table or courtroom prepared to meet your case’s needs.

Do Your Injuries Qualify for Compensation?
