New Hampshire is a "fault" state, which means that at-fault motorists may be held liable for the injuries and damages they cause. Therefore, victims of negligent drivers must prove who was responsible for the accident in order to pursue compensation for their losses. This process is not always easy and often requires the guidance and counsel of a skilled New Hampshire injury attorney.
There are many car accidents caused by negligence in New Hampshire. Drivers who are determined to have caused an accident by driving under the influence, speeding, driving distracted or in a reckless manner may be held accountable for their actions. Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way, fail to obey traffic control devices and who fail to look before entering traffic or make an unsafe or illegal turn may also be held civilly liable. Proving negligence can be a complicated process. Having a basic understanding of the most common traffic violations can help a victim prove the other motorist was responsible for the accident.
The following are some of the most common traffic violations in New Hampshire that have the potential to result in a serious injury car accident:
It is important to remember that a driver does not have to be cited or arrested by the police to be held liable for the injuries caused. By filing a personal injury claim, an injured victim may pursue compensation for medical bills, hospitalization, cost of surgery, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
