When To Expect Payment After a Car Wreck in Georgia
If you have been injured in a car wreck in Georgia, one of the first questions on your mind after the settlement is probably, “When will I get paid?” The answer to that question can be simple—but sometimes things don’t do as planned.
Georgia Car Accident Settlements
Car accident settlements vary widely depending on the amount of damage inflicted. In order to reach a settlement, various things will be considered including:
- Car repairs
- Medical bills
- Insurance coverage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages due to time away from work
You have a limited time to file a car accident lawsuit. In Georgia, the limit is two years from the date of the car accident to file a lawsuit for personal injuries, and four years from the date of the wreck to file for property damage.
When Your Compensation Check is Late
The law speaks clearly about when and how you are supposed to receive your compensation check. However, these checks are sent from out of state and can be delayed, or not sent at all.
If your settlement check is late, it is important to contact your attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to guide you on what to do next, and can take action to ensure that you get paid as quickly as possible.
