“Georgia Statute of Limitations Not Automatically Tolled in Negligent Security Case"

Insurance Journal

In an article published in Insurance Journal on May 21, Swift Currie attorney Jack McCall discusses nuances to the statute of limitations of personal injury cases in Georgia in which individuals have two years to file suit for premise liability that resulted in the injury.

He clarifies that, “if there is a criminal prosecution related to the underlying criminal act that forms the basis of a plaintiff’s lawsuit, the statute of limitations can have up to an additional six years added, meaning that a plaintiff could file their lawsuit as late as eight years after the actual incident occurred.”

McCall goes on to identify which plaintiffs are entitled to tolling and the significance of knowing when the statute of limitations is tolled, especially when dismissing claims that plaintiffs assume are tolled.
