Nashua Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury is a field of tort law. It is a system in which victims can hold defendants accountable for reckless and negligent wrongdoings. People and businesses owe each other a standard of care when out and about in the world. Whether it’s a dry floor not to slip on or safe driving roads where nobody is speeding or operating their vehicle illegally, we owe it to each other to keep everyone safe. 

If this care has been breached and you have been injured because of it, contact Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers to request a free legal consultation.

What Are New Hampshire’s Personal Injury Laws?

A personal injury claim is a civil lawsuit seeking to hold someone financially and legally responsible for a victim’s damages. Someone might be liable for another person’s injuries in New Hampshire if that person was negligent, reckless, careless or malicious in causing them. If you believe you have a personal injury claim in Nashua, our lawyers can break down all the laws that may apply to your case.

Fault-based car accident laws. If you were in a car accident, know that New Hampshire is a fault state. You can hold the at-fault party liable for your injuries and damages.

Modified comparative negligence rule. The state’s comparative negligence rule states that as long as a plaintiff is less than 51% at fault for his or her injuries, the plaintiff may still recover compensation.

Statute of limitations. This is a legal deadline requiring all plaintiffs to file within three years of their accidents. Missing this time limit means the courts will most likely refuse to hear your case.

Navigating federal, state, and county laws that are relevant to your personal injury case can be much easier with help from an attorney. Your lawyer can assist you in bringing a valid claim to damages, establishing negligence, proving your losses, and many other steps required to obtain fair compensation. Working with an attorney at Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP can improve your chances of a successful claim.

How to prove negligence in a personal injury case?

To receive compensation for your damages, you must first prove that they are a direct result of another person, business, or entity’s negligence. Negligence is composed of four different elements, including: 

Standard of car

Breach of care



  • Your dedicated personal injury lawyer will use their resources and connections to gather time-sensitive evidence, eyewitness accounts, and expert testimony to fully demonstrate the liable party was negligent in their behavior. This behavior will be shown to have directly caused your damages.
