How to Win Your Personal Injury Case
New Hampshire law mandates that if a personal injury plaintiff can prove the following elements of their case, then they will be eligible to receive compensation in the amount of their damages:
- The at-fault party owed the plaintiff a duty of care — Drivers must act with regard for the safety of others, for example. Doctors also have a duty of care to their patients, as do property owners to those on their premises.
- The at-fault party breached this duty of care — This can be through an intentional act of negligence, such as getting behind the wheel while intoxicated, or an unintentional act of negligence, like accidentally running a stop sign.
- The plaintiff was injured due to this breach of care — For example, another’s negligence led to a traffic accident, medical incident, slip and fall accident, etc. in which the plaintiff suffered some sort of injury.
- The injury led the plaintiff to incur damages — “Damages” is the legal term for “losses.” Hospital bills, emotional distress, reduced future earning potential, and loss of quality of life are common examples of damages in personal injury cases.
If a plaintiff cannot prove each of these elements, they will not win their case. A personal injury attorney can work to ensure all these elements are addressed, as well as make sure all legal deadlines are met. The state’s statute of limitations only gives victims of negligence three years from the date of injury to file suit. If a government entity is involved, there is also a 180-day deadline to file a formal injury claim.
