Georgia state government

If you wait for the two year statute of limitations to make a claim for serious personal injury or wrongful death against a state agency in Georgia, you will be out of luck.

The Georgia Tort Claims Act waives sovereign immunity up to  $1 million per person and $3 million per occurrence, subject to a long list of limitations that are beyond the scope of this post. Suit must be against the state agency rather than the individual state employee or official.

Where the Georgia Tort Claims Act applies, written notice of a claim must be provided within 12 months
