If someone else’s negligence hurt you or someone you love, then you may be entitled to damages. An insurance settlement or court award could provide coverage for your healthcare expenses, lost income, and emotional anguish. A Marietta personal injury lawyer from Kaine Law can seek compensation and protect your rights.
How Long do You Have to File a Civil Lawsuit in Georgia?
Your case’s deadline depends on the circumstances of your case. After reviewing your situation, our lawyers can explain how long you have to file and advise you accordingly.
Most claimants have two years to file their injury cases, per O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33. However, some circumstances may lengthen or shorten this period. That makes considering your legal options crucial.
Even if you miss the deadline by mistake, you risk being unable to seek compensation.

How Our Personal Injury Team Will Fight for You
After suffering injuries in an accident, you may find yourself dealing with numerous physical, financial, and emotional hardships. However, you don’t have to deal with these challenges alone. Our legal team can guide you through the claims process and fight for compensation on your behalf.
Here are some services you can expect from our team:
We Will Investigate the Accident
Your lawyer will collect evidence that shows what happened and who caused it. That way, we can build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
Once our team has investigated your accident, you may file an insurance claim to seek compensation. The liable insurance company in your case may represent an individual, business, corporation, or government entity.
We Will Negotiate on Your Behalf
Armed with the evidence we uncover, our lawyer will negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company to obtain a fair settlement. Often, insurance companies will try to pay claimants less than they deserve to keep expenses low. Regardless, we will advocate for you and your loved ones’ best interests.
We Will Fight for Compensation in Civil Court
We have no problem going to court if the liable insurance company refuses to settle. In service of your lawsuit, we will cross-examine witnesses, take depositions, and present your case.
Sometimes insurance companies will try to settle once a court case begins, and other times, the case will go all the way to a verdict. In either situation, your lawyer will be by your side, advising you of your options each step of the way.
