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 will have the right to hold the at-fault party liable for your injuries and damages as compared to filing a first-party claim regardless of fault.
  • 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.
