In most personal injury cases, an injured person has a limited amount of time to initiate legal proceedings. This is better known as the statute of limitations. States have different rules regarding statutes of limitations and some cases allow people more time to start the proceedings. At the Eichholz Law Firm, we will analyze your case and determine the best course of action for you to get maximum compensation.

The following are some general statute of limitations guidelines for Georgia:
- Personal injury — 2 years
- Injury to personal property — 4 years
- Libel, slander or defamation — 1 year

In personal injury cases, evidence may get lost. People may forget and want to move on with their lives. For these reasons, states have enacted statute of limitation laws.
