What Is The Difference Between At-Fault And No-Fault Accidents?

At-fault accidents are accidents in which one driver is deemed responsible for causing the collision. In such cases, the at-fault driver’s insurance covers the other party’s property damage, medical expenses and other losses.

On the other hand, in no-fault states, each driver’s insurance covers their damages, regardless of who caused the accident. Georgia is an at-fault system, so it is vital to know who is at fault for a wreck to determine who pays for the damages incurred.

What If The At-Fault Driver Is Uninsured Or Underinsured?

Recovering costs and damages can be challenging if the motorist is uninsured or underinsured. In such instances, a driver’s own uninsured motorist coverage may be used. That means you may have to file a claim against your own insurance company. In those situations, experienced legal guidance is essential for a successful claim.

How Long Do You Have To File A Car Accident Claim In Georgia?

It is crucial to act fast when filing a claim for damages resulting from a car accident. In Georgia, the statute of limitation is two years from the date of the incident. Failing to adhere to this deadline may result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation.
