Atlanta | Savannah Car Wreck – How Long Does The Adjuster Have to Settle My Car Wreck Claim?

Hello.  My name is Ty Wilson.  I’m a Georgia personal injury attorney practicing law in the State of Georgia and our video topic for today is how long does the adjuster have before they have to settle a claim with anyone who’s injured in a car wreck?

Well the short answer is, there is no time limit on them and you must impose a time limit on them.  As an attorney we have ways of placing deadlines, that’s why it’s always recommended you reach out to a Savannah personal injury attorney.
There are cases where sometimes the insurance company may not attempt to settle your injury claim and if that’s the case you have certain deadlines in which you have to file certain documents to protect yourself from losing the value of that claim completely and not being allowed to bring that claim forward in the future, it’s called a statute of limitations.
Those vary from case to case; the typical statute of limitation in Georgia is 2 years; however that can be tolled under certain circumstances, THEY CAN ALSO BE SHORTER IN CERTAIN INSTANCES so you need to reach out to a Georgia personal injury attorney immediately and find out.
What you don’t want to do is hand off your claim with less than 3 months, maybe less than 6 months in some cases before the statute of limitations has run and try to find an attorney.  A lot of attorneys are busy; we don’t have time to drop everything for your particular case.
Therefore we always recommend that you contact attorneys early so that they can gather and lock down the evidence that is needed for your claim.  We hope that you found this information helpful.  We hope that you’ll come check out our other videos and if you have any questions please feel free to give us a call.  Thank you.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
