During this Survey period, the courts in Georgia were somewhat quiet in the area of insurance following fairly active survey periods during the pandemic. In the three areas of insurance that typically dominate this annual update—automobile, liability, and property insurance—there were only a few cases in each area that seemed to break new ground or offer useful insights to practitioners of insurance law. This Survey period saw very few cases in the area of Georgia uninsured/underinsured (UM) law, which is typically the most active area of insurance decisions year after year. In fact, in this Survey period, legislative changes seemed to take center stage. There were significant legislative changes governing time-limited demands as well as changes to the Department of Insurance statutes governing the practices of public adjusters in Georgia. These statutory changes appear to be the most significant insurance law development during the Survey period.
