How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Anyone injured due to the negligence of another can file a personal injury lawsuit. Winning is a different story, however. Plaintiffs (the injured party) must prove three elements of their case to be awarded compensation:
- Duty of care: This simply means that the other party had an obligation to provide you with a certain standard of care. A doctor-patient relationship is perhaps the most common example of a duty of care, but even drivers have a duty of care to each other.
- Negligence and breach of duty: When the party is negligent, such as through texting and driving, they are considered to have breached their duty of care.
- Injury and damages: You cannot sue a party for merely breaching the duty of care. You must also prove that the negligence/breach caused you to suffer an injury and certain damages, such as pain and suffering, lost wages, hospital bills, etc.
The defense (the negligent party) will most certainly fight back and attempt to disprove your allegations. To put yourself in the best position possible, work with a trusted trial attorney.
What Damages Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Claim in Manchester, NH?
In a personal injury claim in New Hampshire, you may be eligible to recover various types of damages if you can establish your case successfully. The potential damages you can seek include:
- Medical Expenses: Compensation for reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to your injury, such as hospitalization, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and therapy.
- Lost Wages: Recovery of lost income resulting from missed work due to your injury, including both past and future earnings affected by the injury.
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life caused by the injury.
- Permanent Disability or Impairment: Compensation for the long-term or permanent disability or impairment resulting from the injury, considering its impact on your daily life, ability to work, and overall quality of life.
- Loss of Consortium: In specific cases, your spouse may be eligible to seek compensation for the loss of companionship, spousal relationship, or ability to engage in normal marital relations due to your injury.
It is important to note that New Hampshire follows a modified comparative fault system, which means that if you are found partially at fault for the accident or your injuries, your compensation may be reduced proportionately based on your degree of fault.
