How Long Do I Have To File in Georgia?

According to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, (O.C.G.A.) § 9-3-33, any victim of a motor vehicle accident has approximately two years to file their suit. There are certain exceptions, such as in the case of minors, but they are limited. If you, or someone you love, were hurt in a van collision as a result of someone else's negligence, it is highly advised you seek proper council immediately.

What Causes Van Collisions?

As anyone who has operated a moving van, taken a courtesy van to the airport, or ridden shotgun in a conversion van can attest, these types of vehicles take up a considerable portion of the road. Combined with their propensity for rolling over, generally powerful engines, and limited handling - they are one automobile to be driven with care. Yet the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) estimates every year there are over 2,200 injuries and over 500 fatalities associated with crashes in 9-15 passenger vans, nationwide. The reasons for these numbers are as varied as the accidents themselves and just as preventable:

  1. Unskilled or Unlicensed Drivers: High capacity vans, available through rental agencies or shipping firms, piloted by drivers who have little to no training can pose a significant hazard on the road.
  2. Overloaded Capacity: Due to their size, passenger vans are sometimes placed in the same category as buses, which is a severe oversight. Placing too many people in one vehicle can quickly threaten the stability and safety of everyone inside.
  3. Poor Conditions and Tricky Handling: Because of their narrow wheel base and sometimes poor weight distribution, a van's handling can be severely compromised even in the clearest of weather. Snow or rain only makes this situation worse.
