Understanding Car Accident Liability in Georgia

Georgia follows a "fault" or "at-fault" system when it comes to car accidents. This means that the person responsible for causing the accident is typically held liable for the resulting damages.

In order to prove that the negligent driver was negligent, the injured driver or insurance company will generally need to prove that the "at-fault" driver breached a duty of care to the accident victim. In most car accident cases, the "at-fault" driver breaches a duty of care by driving carelessly or negligently.

Common examples of breach of duty include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to follow the traffic signals and signs
  • Failure to obey traffic laws

There must also be a casual link between the breach and the plaintiff's injuries. Lastly, the plaintiff must have suffered losses or damages as a result of the accident.

Georgia also applies the concept of "modified comparative fault" when determining liability in a car accident. This means that if multiple parties are found to be at fault, the amount of compensation they can recover may be reduced by their percentage of fault. However, if an injured party is deemed to be 50% or more at fault, they may be barred from recovering any damages.

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a claim. In Georgia, you have two years from the date of the car accident to file a claim. If you wait more than three years to file your claim, you will be barred from recovering damages.
