How Do Georgia Civil Courts Determine Fault In Car Accidents?

Judges typically use the comparative fault standard when determining who is responsible for a car crash. You can collect damages for your injuries if you are less than 49% at fault. You can still collect damages if 49% to 51% are responsible for an accident. However, you may only be able to collect half of your injuries in these instances. 

Speak with Sam today to learn how Georgia’s comparative fault laws could affect your case. 

How Long Do You Have To File A Car Accident Claim In Georgia?

Georgia has a few different deadlines for filing car accident claims. For example, you have approximately two years to file a car accident injury and four years to file a property damage claim. However, there can be exceptions to these rules. The state’s statute of limitations could get extended if there was a minor or someone with a disability who was involved in the crash. 

Sam can help you determine if your circumstances qualify under these exceptions. Call him at 229-244-4428 to learn more.

What Is The Average Settlement For A Car Accident In Georgia?

There is no such thing as an “average” settlement amount for a car accident claim because each case has to be evaluated on its own merits. Attorney Sam Dennis will dedicate his time and work to help clients receive the maximum possible compensation in their car accident cases. There are a lot of variables that can affect your settlement for a car accident, including:

  • The amount of damage to your vehicle and property
  • Who was at fault for the accident and to what degree
  • The limits of any insurance coverage or resources available to the defendant
  • The sum total of your economic and noneconomic losses
  • The severity of your injuries and the long-term consequences you may face

One factor that can affect a car accident settlement is whether a collision was caused by a car or a large vehicle, such as a truck or commercial van. Many people recover more damages from a collision with a large vehicle simply because the victim’s injuries and losses are often greater.

You will not find a case results page on this website because attorney Sam Dennis does not want to make a big show of his successes. For Sam Dennis, his work and client relationship matters more than his number of wins. His primary focus is to help educate his clients on what is best for them.

If I Am Permanently Disabled After An Accident, What Costs Can Be Recovered?

A motor vehicle accident (especially one involving a large commercial truck or semi) could lead to permanent disabilities for many victims. Some of the costs that can be recovered may include:

  • Hospital bills and future estimated hospital bills
  • Long-term medical needs, including home modifications
  • Nursing home bills or rehab facility costs
  • Medical equipment expenses and home health care needs
  • Loss of employment or reduced future earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and damage to interpersonal relationships

You can speak with attorney Sam Dennis to learn about what you can recover from your auto accident claim.
