The Atlanta metro area is a hub of transportation with several suburban community streets, hundreds of heavily traveled roadways, six significant interstates. While road systems well developed ensure convenient traveling, statistics of Georgia car accidents show they, in fact, present severe dangers.
Even the most law-abiding, conscientious pedestrian or motorist could fall victim to disastrous occurrences. The fact is that we can’t control people’s actions, and recklessness or negligence is one of the major causes of accidents in Georgia.
Throughout the state of Georgia, over 60 people are involved in an auto accident every hour. If these stats seem alarming, you might find it interesting to know that about 1000 drivers each day are involved in accidents.
Insurers can take years to settle cases, which helps them maximize their profit margins and forces plaintiffs into lower settlement amounts.
The statute of limitation for personal injury in Georgia is 2 years. This means that you must file your lawsuit within that timeframe otherwise you won’t recover for your damages.

How injuries affect Georgia plaintiffs with personal injury cases:
As Georgia’s laws do not restrict the damage cap limit for suffering and pain, a wide variety of factors might be provided to the jury or judge to obtain the highest possible sum. The considerations are as follows:
- Treatment and medical bills involved
- Limitations of movement
- Emotional and mental distress
- Physical injuries
- The shock from being involved in an accident
- Fear of extent of the injury
- Distress to loved ones
- the loss of capability to holding employment and earning wages
- Inability to participate in day-to-day activities
- Interference with daily life
Not all the considerations above are needed to recover from suffering and pain damages.
The following landmarks in Georgia are beautiful, but unfortunately, accidents happen in the most beautiful places. If you have suffered an accident in any of these locations, and you have suffered injuries that require injections or surgery, you are now pre-qualified for a loan against your Georgia lawsuit:
- Fort Frederica National Monument.
- Calhoun Mine
- Flannery O’Connor Home.
- Tybee Island Light.
- Stone Mountain.
- Georgia Aquarium.
- College Hill
- Georgia Guidestones.
- Consolidated Gold Mine.
- Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Any of these factors listed above can be enough to obtain lawsuit funding.
Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state. This is a modified form of comparative negligence. This means that if you are equal or more than 49% liable for your injury, you won’t be collecting any damages. The award will be reduced by the percentage that you are at fault.
The minimum auto insurance policy limits in Georgia are 25/50/25:
- $25,000 bodily injury liability per person,
- $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident,
- $25,000 property damage liability per accident.
Legal funding in Georgia can help you get a better compensation or award for your damages, so you don’t fall victim to the insurance company’s tactics that not only make you wait long periods of time to offer a reward, but the offer is lowball.
A lawsuit loan can help you say no to the insurance company’s low ball offer so you can support yourself while you fight to get get the settlement you deserve.
