To win a truck accident claim, the injured party must prove:
- The accident would not have occurred but for the defendant’s careless behavior
- The defendant’s actions were the proximate cause of the accident, meaning that it was a foreseeable result of the careless conduct
- A certain amount of damages resulted from the defendant’s negligence
Damages in negligence and personal injury actions may extend from economic damages (i.e. past and future medical expenses, lost income, property damage, etc.) to non-economic damages (i.e. pain and suffering or emotional distress).

How Much Time Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim in Georgia?
Knowing how long you have to file your personal injury case is critical in getting the compensation you deserve. In Georgia, the statue of limitations is two years from the injury date. However, there are a few rare exceptions that may allow you to file after this time has passed. Exceptions may include the injury occurring while you are a minor, not having the mental capacity to file the claim, or not realizing that an injury or medical problem occurred until a later date.
