Fight for Your Rights in a Personal Injury Claim

Our personal injury lawyers fight hard to protect the interests of injury victims and strive to obtain the maximize compensation possible for their losses. We have substantial experience dealing with insurance companies, documenting victims’ losses, and fighting to obtain a full recovery for our clients. Some common types of personal injury cases that we handle include motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and construction accidents. Often, personal injury lawsuits require a plaintiff to establish negligence. This requires proof that the defendant owed a duty of care, this duty was breached, and the breach led to the plaintiff’s injuries. Many types of damages may be available in personal injury claims, such as medical expenses, lost income and earning capacity, costs of future treatment, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, property damage, and more.

Pursue Compensation for a Car Accident

We understand that car accidents often have long-lasting physical, emotional, and financial impacts. Following a severe collision, injury victims incur substantial medical costs which often result in financial hardship. Moreover, injury victims suffer disruption to and changes in employment. As a result, family members may also be called upon to serve as caregivers, resulting in further disruption to family life and relationships. Car accidents can arise from a broad range of situations, such as speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, or a failure to follow road rules, such as yielding at intersections. While some cases are straightforward, others are more complicated. The defendant or an insurer may try to avoid paying out on your claim by arguing that you were partly at fault. Our car accident attorneys can help New Hampshire victims make sure that they are not unfairly blamed for a crash. Even if you were partly responsible, however, you can still obtain damages if you were less than 50% at fault. We can help you compile and present evidence to show how the defendant’s dangerous actions led to your injuries.

Hold a Negligent Driver Accountable for a NH Motorcycle Accident

At Tenn And Tenn, we are not only motorcycle accident lawyers, but long-time motorcycle riders. As a result, our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of how motorcycles operate. We understand panic braking, hazard avoidance, and counter steering techniques – all of which can impact injury cases involving motorcycle riders. We understand that drivers may not extend the same courtesies to motorcyclists as they do to people in passenger cars, and they may not yield to motorcyclists on the road even when they are obligated to do so. There is no buffer to protect you if you are injured in a motorcycle accident. As a result, motorcycle accidents can lead to severe and catastrophic injuries or even death. Damages that you may be able to recover after a motorcycle accident include lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, among others. Our NH motorcycle attorneys understand what injured riders are experiencing. As long- time motorcycle riders ourselves, we recognize the stigma associated with motorcycling and the bias many have against motorcycle riders. We are here to help you fight back against this unwarranted bias, protecting your rights just as we would want our rights to be protected.

Vigorous Advocacy in DWI Cases

A NH DWI can have a devastating effect on an individual. Long after criminal sentences have been imposed and fines have been paid, a DUI can continue to adversely affect an individual. Our Dui lawyers have spent the past twenty years defending the rights of those accused of driving under the influence. We know the ins-and-outs of the DUI process, from the tactics and devices used by law enforcement to facilitate an arrest, to court proceedings, to sentencing and restitution. Our attorneys strive to be the best DWI lawyers in New Hampshire. Driving while intoxicated- DWI- is charged as a first offense when there are no previous convictions within the last 10 years and no aggravating factors. For a first offense, you can face a fine of up to $1,200, the mandatory loss of your license for nine months (which is reducible), and a requirement that you schedule a substance abuse screening assessment. New Hampshire has a Habitual Offender law, which requires certain drivers to be certified for their repeat offenses, such that they cannot get a driver's license for up to four years or longer. If you drive after you are certified as a habitual offender, you may face a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in jail. You can be certified if you accumulate enough predicate offenses within a five-year period. To understand your options and protect your rights to the fullest extent of the law, you should consult our NH DWI attorneys.

Advance Your Interests in a Family Law Matter

Undergoing a NH divorce can be an intense and stressful experience for individuals and families. At Tenn And Tenn, we handle family law matters, including divorce, property division, parental rights, and grandparent visitation. We understand that questions related to parenting have immediate impacts on parents and children alike. Financial issues – including questions related to alimony, child support, and property division – can also be complex and have significant impacts on individuals and families. In addition to the multitude of issues that impact day-to-day life for divorcing couples, the attorneys at Tenn And Tenn understand the difficult emotional aspects of divorce. In New Hampshire, you can file for divorce on a no-fault basis. This means that the marriage broke down based on irreconcilable differences, and it is not possible to remedy them. Divorce can also be granted on fault grounds, which means that it could be granted because of reasons such as adultery, extreme cruelty, impotency, a conviction of a crime that is punished with more than a year of imprisonment that results in actual imprisonment, habitual drunkenness for two years, or abandonment for two years.

Aggressive Representation in Criminal Proceedings

We have over two decades of experience handling criminal defense matters, including assault, disorderly conduct, and drug crimes. Whenever there are criminal charges, the prosecutor needs to establish beyond a reasonable doubt all of the elements of the offense. For example, if you have been charged with simple assault, the prosecutor will need to show beyond a reasonable doubt that you knowingly or purposely caused a bodily injury or offensive physical contact to somebody else. Alternatively, the prosecutor will need to show that you negligently caused a bodily injury to another person by using a deadly weapon or recklessly caused a bodily injury. There may be ways to attack the prosecution’s ability to prove one or more elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. In addition, there may be procedural defenses in some cases, such as an unconstitutional search and seizure, or affirmative defenses, such as self-defense or defense of others.

Take Legal Action After a Truck Accident

Truck accidents can be complex, and it is important to retain a New Hampshire personal injury attorney who is experienced in litigating these cases. Often, it is necessary to establish the truck driver's negligence. However, there may not be enough coverage on the driver's insurance policy to cover catastrophic injuries to multiple accident victims. Therefore, it is crucial to look at whether other factors contributed to the accident. It may be possible, for example, to hold the trucking company, a truck manufacturer, a third-party loader, a repair person, or others responsible for contributing to a truck accident.

Bring a Premises Liability Claim Against a Property Owner

New Hampshire property owners owe a duty to visitors to keep their property reasonably safe, and victims can bring a premises liability claim against them if they do not. However, the duty varies somewhat depending on the status of the visitor. There are four types of visitors: social guests, business invitees (customers), trespassers, and licensees. The highest duty of care is owed by business owners, such as retail stores or restaurants, to business invitees. Businesses are supposed to make timely inspections to locate any dangerous conditions and either resolve them or provide reasonable warnings about them.

Pursue a Wrongful Death Action After a Fatal Accident

In New Hampshire, anybody who has an interest in the estate of someone who died in a fatal accident may file a wrongful death claim in civil court. The civil lawsuit is wholly distinct from any criminal charge for manslaughter or murder, and it can be filed whether or not criminal charges are also being pursued. A wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within six years of the date of the decedent's death. Our New Hampshire personal injury lawyers can guide you through this process and help you assert your right to compensation for items such as the victim’s funeral expenses as well as the loss of the victim’s contributions to your life.

Whether a fatigued truck driver crashed into your car, someone has accused you of assault, you have been arrested for DUI, or your spouse has hidden assets from you during a divorce, it is critical to retain a knowledgeable attorney.

In addition, our personal injury attorneys will never make any critical decisions about your case without your permission.

How often do personal injury cases go to court

You will not have to go to court unless your case cannot be settled and must be tried. In New Hampshire, the vast majority of claims are settled before trial; however, because of the many factors involved, it is impossible to predict whether your particular case is one which will be settled or one which must be decided by a jury.

What happens if you can't pay your lawyer?

Tenn And Tenn, P.A., in Manchester, New Hampshire, represents its personal injury clients on a contingent-fee basis. If we accept your case, you pay no legal fees unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.

How much can I expect from a personal injury claim?

Unfortunately, we cannot predict exactly how much money you will win because your recovery depends on your individual circumstances and injuries. We look to a wide variety of factors, such as the severity and permanency of your injury, the amount of your medical expenses, the liability of the defendant, and whether the case is to be tried or settled. At the start of your case, it is often impossible to estimate the value of your claim. Until your case has been fully investigated and your medical condition has stabilized, you should be wary of anyone who tries to tell you the value of your claim at an early stage.

After Tenn And Tenn, P.A. has completed a thorough investigation of your case, we are in a position to offer our opinion as to the value of your claim. We will discuss any proposed settlement with you, and give you our advice about whether to accept an insurance company’s offer of settlement or to allow a jury to determine the value of your injuries.
