Is Georgia a No-Fault State for Car Accidents?
Georgia is an at-fault state. Since Georgia is an at-fault state when it comes to car accidents, this means that if 51% or more of the fault can be placed on the other driver, you will not be held liable for the accident. The driver that is held liable will not be able to seek compensation from the other driver. You should call the police to come to the scene, so you can obtain a police report. With a police report, you will have much more credibility and will be much more credible than the other driver’s word.
Does Insurance Follow the Car or Driver in Georgia?
In Georgia, car insurance follows the car. Types of car insurance that follows the car are personal injury liability, comprehensive, and collision. In Georgia, you are required to carry property damage liability and bodily injury liability. Since car insurance follows the car, if you let someone borrow your car and got into an accident, insurance will cover the driver, passenger, and damage to the other driver’s vehicle.
