On September 28, 2009 the Georgia Supreme Court decided that the statute of limitations in Georgia car accidents can be extended under certain circumstances.  The Supreme Court decided that a Georgia Law "tolling" the statute for a victim of a crime applied to Georgia traffic offenses. 
     This extends the length of time car accident victims have to file a claim or lawsuit if the criminal or traffic ticket was delayed in getting resolved.  This can be extremely important in DUI victim cases or other car accident cases where the defendant fought the ticket in court.  Find more information including the text of the case at my library of articles.  I do not recommend delaying but this recent decision could save a case if the circumstances apply and you were late talking to a car accident lawyer about your atlanta car accident case.
