Georgia Gives Most Claimants Two Years to Act
O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 is Georgia’s statute of limitations. As the injured party, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. However, this deadline may not apply to you––especially if you are planning on suing a government entity.
For instance, if a truck owned by the city hit you, you could have only six months to file a lawsuit, as explained under O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5.
Our team can identify the liable party and determine how long you have to file your case. We understand that most Atlanta truck accident cases are resolved through insurance negotiations. However, we are always prepared to bring a case to court if we believe that is what it takes.
What Kaine Law Can Do for You
Our mission is simple: we seek to recover compensation for injured people throughout the state of Georgia, including Atlanta, Conyers, Lawrenceville, and Stockbridge.
We Will Investigate Your Accident
We will first start your case by determining how your accident happened. Your lawyer will investigate the circumstances of your truck accident to decide who should be held accountable.
By reading the trucker’s logbook, consulting with field experts, and viewing traffic camera footage, we can establish negligence and how your accident occurred.
We Will Hold the Liable Party Accountable
The liable party in your case will be the entity that is responsible for paying for your damages. So, even if a negligent trucking company caused your accident, liability could rest on their insurer.
Getting compensation through an insurance settlement is among one of our many goals. If we accomplish this, we would not have to file a lawsuit. However, we will represent your best interests in court, if necessary.
We Will Calculate the Cost of Your Losses
Your truck accident may have negatively impacted your finances, health, and emotional well-being. We are prepared to request compensation that accounts for all of your economic and non-economic hardships.
Some of your compensable losses may include:
- Past lost wages
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Past and future medical bills
- Loss of future earning ability
- Property damage costs
If your truck accident negatively affected your relationship with your spouse, you could also recover an expense called “loss of consortium.”
We Will Defend You Against Aggressive Insurance Companies
You have rights when it comes to negotiating a settlement with the insurance company. Per O.C.G.A. § 33-6-34, insurance companies are prohibited from doing the following:
- Misrepresenting certain aspects of your policy
- Refusing to pay claims without valid reasons why
- Failing to respond to your messages within reasonable periods of time
- Offering you compensation that does not fairly account for your losses
We know that insurance companies do not always put injured claimants first. However, we always prioritize our clients’ needs, even if that means going to trial.
We Can File Your Truck Accident Lawsuit in Court
We have experience in the courtroom that we can put to work for you. We know what goes into filing a lawsuit, and we are not afraid of going up against a trucking company’s legal team.
After filing your lawsuit, your Atlanta truck accident lawyer will:
- Demonstrate the circumstances of your accident
- Present your side of the story in court
- List the cost of your damages
- Exchange evidence with the other party’s legal team
- Call upon witnesses to testify on your behalf
Just because your case makes it to court does not mean that we are done dealing with the insurer. Even after filing your case, we will continue fighting for a settlement on your behalf. While your case unfolds in court, if the insurer finally agrees to pay for your losses, we can end your case right then and there.
These are just some of the services that our legal team is prepared to offer you. We can also consult with accident reconstruction specialists, write your demand letter, and handle all necessary communications.
Potential Responsible Parties in Your Truck Accident Case
There are many parties involved in the day-to-day operations of a commercial truck. If any of these parties do not do their part to keep others safe, they can be held financially accountable for their actions.
After completing our investigation, we may find that one or more of the following parties owe you money:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The cargo loading crew
- The truck’s manufacturer
You could even hold a government agency responsible for your losses if they were involved in the operation of the truck or did not maintain safe road conditions.
