A collision with a large truck is most drivers’ worst nightmare. Commercial trucks can far exceed passenger cars in terms of weight, height, and length, which makes accidents often catastrophic for smaller passenger vehicles. Truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, immense property damage, and in many cases, loss of life. When these accidents occur due to negligence, accident victims and their loved ones may be eligible to pursue compensation.

The legal professionals at Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers are adept at handling truck accident cases and may prove invaluable to you.
At our firm, you can rest assured knowing that the following is true:
On staff, we have attorneys like Boston injury attorney Erin E. McHugh. Attorney McHugh has extensive experience representing clients in personal injury cases involving motor vehicle accidents. She played a key role in obtaining substantial recoveries for accident victims and families. Also, she was named a 2022 Rising Star by Super Lawyers. Partnering with our firm will likely give you an advantage over whoever you’re against.
Truck companies and their insurance providers generally do not make the claims process easy for accident victims. Their goal is to save money, not maximize a claimant’s payout. Protect your rights and fight insurance bad faith by hiring a truck accident attorney.
A lawyer representing you during insurance claim deliberations or an injury lawsuit could ensure someone is voicing your rights and looking out for your best interests. Your attorney can argue for maximum compensation on your behalf while you are working on your recovery.
Like most states, New Hampshire obeys fault laws when it comes to vehicle accident claims. After a traffic accident, you will seek compensation from the party at fault for causing the collision. In a truck accident, the identity of the at-fault party might not be as simple as the person who caused the crash. Under vicarious liability laws, the trucking company could be liable for the negligence of its drivers.
If a negligent or reckless truck driver caused your wreck in Nashua, you will most likely bring your claim against the trucking company. The trucking company might also act as the defendant during your claim if an investigation shows it was directly at fault for your accident, such as by failing to properly train its drivers or maintain its fleet of trucks. Other defendants could include a vehicle part manufacturer or even the city of Nashua itself.
Once you or your lawyer identifies the correct defendant(s), you will file your claim against that party. Your Nashua truck accident lawyer can fill out and submit the correct paperwork at the Hillsborough County civil courthouse on your behalf. You must act within three years of the date of your truck accident. This is the statute of limitations in personal injury cases in New Hampshire. Otherwise, the courts may deny your case.
With our assistance, you and your family may be able to hold a trucking company or another party liable for your accident-related damages. A settlement or judgment award in Nashua could pay for your past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, hospital expenses, legal costs, vehicle repairs, a loved one’s wrongful death, and more.
