Out-of-state resident cannot sue for non-injury economic loss resulting from car accident

In Diallo v. La Rochelle, a Georgia resident attempted to sue the at-fault drunk and his insurer, State Farm, to recover business losses resulting from the damage to his vehicle in a collision.  He argued that a tortured reading of the No Fault statute preserved his right to collect for economic damages that were unrelated to excess wages or medical.  The Court rejected his analysis and upheld the summary disposition of his claim.
