Georgia Has a Statute of Limitations for Car Accident Cases
There are many deadlines that you will have to keep track of if you represent yourself. The insurer, the court system, and the state will all have deadlines that pertain to certain aspects of your case.
Kaine Law can manage all of the deadlines that affect your insurance claim or lawsuit. One of those deadlines is set in place by O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33. According to this statute, you have:
- Two years to file your personal injury lawsuit
- Two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit
Some exceptions may apply and give you more time to take action. Kaine Law can identify these exceptions and explain how long you have to pursue compensation.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?
Even without factoring in the cost of your medical bills and property damage, car accidents can be expensive. Our team understands this. A car accident lawyer serving Gainesville from our team is ready to calculate the cost of your damages and carry out whatever legal action could help you.
Depending on your situation, some compensable losses may include:
- The cost of treating and managing your condition
- Your car’s damage
- Your pain and suffering
- The income you lost due to your recovery period
- Your anticipated future lost wages
- Loss of consortium (if your accident affected your relationship with your spouse)
You could also recover compensation for disability, scarring, and disfigurement.
We Must Prove Negligence
To recover damages and prove your car accident case, we must prove how your collision was caused by negligence. Kaine Law can prove this by:
- Showing that the at-fault party had a duty of care
- Establishing that this duty of care was breached
- Demonstrating that the at-fault party’s actions caused your accident
- Showcasing the cost of your financial losses
We will need evidence to prove negligence in your case. We can use some pieces of information, like the police report, your medical records, and testimony from accident reconstruction specialists.
We Will Demonstrate the Cause of Your Accident
To secure financial recovery for your losses, we must prove the cause of your accident. Our team understands what goes into fulfilling this obligation. Whether your collision was caused by a drunk driver or unsafe road conditions, we can help you.
Some factors that may have contributed to (or directly caused) your accident include:
- Road rage
- Aggressive driving
- An improper lane change
- Distracted driving
- Failure to adapt to roadway conditions
Establishing the cause of your accident is important because it will help us prove negligence. Do not stress about proving the cause of your accident by yourself. Allow Kaine Law to handle it for you.
Commonly Asked Questions In Car Accident Cases
We love helping people. We want to preemptively address any questions that you may have about your case, such as:
What If I Contributed to the Accident?
That is not a problem. As explained by O.C.G.A. § 51-12-33, you can recover compensation as long as the other party is more responsible for the accident than you.
If the insurer claims that you caused the accident, we can address their allegations. We can use evidence to show otherwise and address their allegations.
What If the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
All motorists in Georgia must have some level of liability insurance, as explained by the Office of Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire. However, not everyone follows through with this obligation.
You might have uninsured motorist protection coverage as an existing part of your policy. Unless you rejected this coverage in writing, you could use this protection to pay for your losses.
How Much Can I Recover for Pain and Suffering?
Pain and suffering is calculated on a case-by-case basis. We cannot offer an estimate as to how much you can recover for pain and suffering without evaluating your case first.
Some factors that can increase the amount of money that you can receive include:
- Whether you will have a lifelong disability
- Whether you lost a loved one
- The details of your accident
- The cost of your damages
- How much time you missed from work
Additionally, if your quality of life was affected, this can also play a role in how much you can get for pain and suffering.
