Derry Personal Injury Lawyers
Helping You Fight for the Fair Recovery You Deserve
Being involved in an accident is a frightening and overwhelming experience, particularly when that accident leaves you with devastating or even debilitating injuries. You are likely facing new, unexpected hardships, ranging from mounting medical bills to lost wages from time taken off work to the lasting physical and emotional implications of your injuries.
If you were injured as a result of another person or entity’s negligent or wrongful conduct, you have the right to take legal action against the at-fault party and seek financial compensation for your losses. By filing a personal injury claim, you can receive restitution for your medical expenses and lost income, as well as for your pain and suffering and other damages.

The Basics of Personal Injury Law
No one should have to face the consequences of someone else’s negligence on their own. This is the foundation of personal injury law, which allows victims to file claims against negligent parties and recover compensation for the economic and non-economic damages that resulted from the other party’s negligence.
In order to have grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you must prove the following:
- Duty of Care: If the other person or party had a legal responsibility to act in a reasonable manner to prevent you from coming to harm, they owed you a duty of care.
- Breach: When another person or party is negligent or acts outside the law, they have breached the duty of care by putting you at risk of injury and/or death.
- Causation: You must prove that it was because of the breach of the duty of care that you were injured and/or otherwise harmed.
- Damages: Lastly, you must prove that you suffered certain losses (known as “damages”), which can be either economic or non-economic in nature, as a result of the other party’s negligence.
Depending on the specific details of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for a variety of damages, including all current and future medical expenses related to the accident/your injuries, lost wages or income from time taken off work, lost future income you will not be able to earn due to a new injury or disability, and intangible losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost quality of life.
Your Time to File a Personal Injury Claim in New Hampshire Is Limited
Like all states, New Hampshire has a statute of limitations on personal injury and wrongful death claims. This means that you only have a certain amount of time to bring your claim; failure to file a claim within the provided timeframe will result in you losing your chance to recover compensation.
The statute of limitations on most personal injury cases in New Hampshire is three years from the date of the accident/injury or the date on which the victim knew of or reasonably should have known of the injury. The statute of limitations on most wrongful death cases in New Hampshire is six years from the date of death.
