In Georgia generally the Statute of Limitations on a personal injury claim runs one day before the 2 year anniversary of the injury, occurrence or known negligence. However, it is important to remember that certain claims, such as medical malpractice or worker’s compensation may have different statutes. In a case where a minor child is injured, the statute of limitations normally starts on the child’s 18th birthday and runs to the day before 2 years from that date. In medical malpractice claims involving minors the statute may be much shorter. If a governmental entity, such as a city, county or school board is involved, the statute may be as little as 6 months. Appropriate action needs to take place well in advance of the statute running out. Act Now!
