Nashua Car Accident Lawyers
Working Tirelessly to Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
Traffic collisions are the leading cause of death among people aged 1 to 54, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This nationwide problem can be seen right in our own backyard: An Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) analysis found that, in 2019 alone, 101 New Hampshire residents were killed in traffic collisions.
Yet most of us never think we will be involved in a car crash, especially a serious one. So when the worst happens, many are left at a loss for what to do. For example, you may find yourself in need of time off work to heal, which may seem impossible as you watch medical bills pile up.
If another driver’s actions injured you, you likely have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit for compensation. State law grants all victims of another person’s negligence this right, and our team is here to help you exercise it. At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., we have represented countless auto accident victims against negligent drivers and their insurance companies.

What Is Negligence in a Car Accident?
To recover compensation, accident victims must prove the other driver was at fault; in other words, you must prove negligence.
Common examples of negligence in car accidents include:
- Drowsy driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Going past the speed limit
- Reckless driving
If you can prove the other driver was negligent in some respect, that the accident was a direct result of this negligence, and that the accident led to your injury, you will win your case. This is, however, a whole lot easier said than done.
Insurance companies and their attorneys can be conniving. They will either deny your allegations outright or try to get you to shoulder some of the blame. Often, they use manipulative tactics and bend the truth to do so. A lawyer of your own can protect you from these predatory negligent parties.
Is It Worth Getting a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
Retaining legal counsel is not required after a car accident, but it is highly recommended. Taking legal action can be overwhelming; the bureaucracy and paperwork can be difficult to navigate when you are dealing with an injury or the loss of a loved one. Adding in a greedy insurance company only complicates the process.
