Statute of LimitationsIf you, a loved one, or a friend has suffered an injury, it’s important to speak to an Injury Attorney quickly in Canton, GA, Atlanta, GA and anywhere in the Entire State of Georgia to determine your legal rights.  This is for several reasons. 

First, the insurance companies may take advantage of you without experienced legal counsel in hopes of a smaller, or no, settlement or a settlement that does not cover all your medical bills (past, present, and future), your lost wages (past, present, and future), a disability whether it be temporary or permanent, and pain and suffering; just to name a few of the monetary damages to which you may be entitled in an injury case. 

Second, the law also contains a “Statute of Limitations” which is a time limitation in your case that states that if you wait too long to file a claim, no matter how legitimate your claim, you will lose your right to file this claim at any time and you will lost all of your legal rights.  This can be devastating. 

Finally, if you are injured, then you will most likely be overwhelmed with medical treatments and getting well and you may let precious time slip away on your legal claim.  Plus, you need to seek the proper medical treatment immediately and if you fail to do so you can harm your chances for a full future recovery.  

In many States, including Georgia, the Statute of Limitations is fairly short such as two (2) years for personal injury and medical malpractice claims, and sometimes much shorter for other types of injury claims.  Therefore, you will need the assistance of a qualified and experienced Injury Attorney at the first most opportunity to determine your legal rights so you are protected and so you can focus on getting well.
