Liability Laws After a Car Accident in Georgia

After a car accident occurs, Georgia adheres to an “at-fault” rule to determine liability. This means that the motorist responsible for causing an accident is the one responsible for paying damages, through an insurance carrier. This at-fault system is directly opposite a no-fault system which some states follow. In this type of liability system, each party files a claim with their own insurance regardless of who is responsible for causing the accident.

While this law is straightforward in situations where only one driver was at fault, many accidents that occur involve the fault of more than one driver, no matter how small their involvement was. For example, you may have been driving a little bit about the speed limit or failed to put on a turn signal. In these cases, an injured driver can still recover compensation from the more negligent party through Georgia’s “modified comparative fault" rule. This rule says that an injured party can still file a claim against the negligent party however,

  • The percentage of responsibility they are found to be guilty of will also be deducted from the overall compensation awarded. For example, if you are found to be 15% at fault for the accident, the total compensation awarded to you will also be reduced by 15%.
  • You can only pursue a claim if your share of fault is less than 50%

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident, call (470) 450-1164 to have your case evaluated by an experienced Alpharetta auto accident lawyer.

Compensation for Auto Accident Injuries

Auto accidents can be very minor and cause little damage and no injuries. Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky. Some accidents result in severe injuries that require medical care and leave the victim unable to work. If you were injured in a car accident, the law allows you to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company for your damages. We help clients recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Other damages related to the accident

You should not hesitate to contact an Alpharetta car accident attorney after an accident. The insurance companies have teams of lawyers and claims adjusters working for them, and you deserve an experienced lawyer in your corner. We fight for fair compensation for victims of auto accidents in Georgia. It is important to remember that Georgia requires you to file a claim within two years of the date of your accident, or you may forfeit your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
