Georgia gives you two years to file your case before the court. Your case can be settled before or after this time. The statute of limitations is a two-year clock that can be tolled or stopped. The clock will pause until payment if the driver involved in the motorcycle accident is cited by police. If the driver is facing criminal charges, the clock will pause.
You must notify the appropriate agency or department within a specified time frame if the defendant is a city, county or state.
