Time Limit for a Property Damage Claim
In this video, attorney Ted Spaulding reviews the statute of limitations for a property damage claim in Georgia. He also reviews how long these cases typically take to resolve.
What is the time limit for a property damage claim? Hi, I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer and I’m the founder here at Spaulding Injury Law: Atlanta Personal Injury & Car Accident Lawyer. So in the state of Georgia, property damage claims have a four-year statute of limitation, unlike the personal injury part which is only two years. So you have a very long time to pursue your property damage claims. And remember, you may have two. I’ve got other articles and videos on this subject matter so look at those to make sure you understand the difference between the potential claims that you have underneath this overall property damage claim.
But you’ve got four years to file a lawsuit from the date of the wreck. You don’t want to wait anywhere close to that long. Normally, they get resolved within weeks, if not a month. So move it along quickly. It is pretty easy in the sense that it’s an empirical type thing, either the repairs are going to get done and paid for, or a total loss to your vehicle and what’s the value. So four years. Don’t go past it. I hope this answers your question. If you have any others or if you have a potential claim you would like to see if my firm can handle, respond in this video below.
