A surefire way to ruin your case is to miss the statute of limitations.  The standard statute of limitations in Georgia is two years from the date of the car accident.  However, there are shorter statutes and notice requirements for cases involving any city, state, or county governments.  This is an “ante litem” requirement totally separate from the statute of limitations.  

      The statute of limitations is also different for cases involving minors or children. Children’s cases survive longer, because they are minors.  Their limits are extended until after they become adults. 
 Also, under a few select circumstances a hidden medical malpractice injury case can survive longer than two years, but there is a limit to how long it can go on after the two years.
