Question:

What are the statute of limitations in Augusta, GA after a bicycle accident?

Answer:

We recently started representing a man that was hit by an automobile while he was riding his bicycle. One of the questions he had in our initial consultation was, “How long do I have to file a claim in the state of Georgia for injuries I’ve sustained in this bicycle accident?” The answer is two years.

It’s important for people injured in bicycle accidents to hire an attorney who is experienced in bicycle accident cases, can analyze the fault of the motorist who caused the accident, and has experience in gathering medical bills, medical records and presenting the damages of the bicyclist to the automobile insurance company to get a quick resolution of the case. If the insurance company does not act reasonably, then there is a two-year time limit on filing a lawsuit, called a statute of limitations, in Georgia.
