No, Georgia is not a No-Fault State when it comes to Auto Accidents.

If you have been in an Auto accident that was not your fault, you should receive money to cover your expenses and losses relating to the accident. Unfortunately, you may have to negotiate with either your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company for what you are entitled to receive. Depending on where you live, you will either have to buy full tort or no-fault insurance. If you are in a state with full tort insurance you will be seeking compensation from the other driver’s insurance company if you can prove that they were negligent. If you live in a no-fault state, you will be negotiating with your own insurance company. Regardless of which situation you’re in, paying attention at the scene of the accident, knowing how to deal with your insurance company, and understanding how insurance companies calculate settlements will help you navigate your accident settlement.  Either way, it is too complex and not in your best interest to handle your accident case on your own.
