 Discovery:

Plaintiff's cause of action did not accrue and the statute of limitations did not run against him until he knew or through the exercise of reasonable diligence should have discovered not only the nature of his injury but the causal connection between his injury and the alleged negligence conduct of defendant. See King v. Seitzingers, Inc., 160 Ga.App. 287 S.E.2d 252 (Ga. Ct. App. 1981).

Discovery Rule
SOL runs from when injury is, or should have been, discovered. See specific rules above for medical malpractice and products liability.
Comparative Negligence
Comparative negligence rule applies but if plaintiff is 50% or more responsible or where plaintiff by ordinary care could have avoided consequences of negligence, no recovery allowed. If plaintiff less than 50% at fault, recovery is reduced by plaintiff's percent of fault.
Charitable Immunity
Still applies.
Disabilities
Minors (18th birthday), incompetents, insane or imprisoned persons are granted the normal SOL after removal of disability. Medical Malpractice: Once minor attains 5 years, there is a 2 year maximum. Negligence: After age 10, action for negligent act that occurred before 5th birthday is barred.
Punitive Damages
Plaintiff must present clear and convincing evidence of malicious intent or willful or wanton conduct. Caps: No caps for product liability cases, where there is malicious intent, or involving conduct influenced by drugs or alcohol. Other torts caped at $250,000, but this limitation can be ignored if there is specific intent to cause harm. In products liability cases, 75% of punitive damage award is paid to the State.
