New Hampshire Wrongful Death Claims – Construction Accidents

Construction accidents in New Hampshire fall under premises liability law if the person injured is a member of the general public, such as a pedestrian or driver unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some victims of construction accidents never recover from their injuries.

For those whose construction accident injuries prove fatal, New Hampshire law gives specific rules about how long the family has to file a claim against a negligent construction company or subcontractor. Family members must file within eight years “from the date of substantial completion”of the construction.

New Hampshire Revised Statutes Section 508:4-b covers lawsuits based on construction, including “the design, labor, materials, engineering, planning, surveying, construction, observation, supervision or inspection” of a construction project. This covers a wide range of possible accidents. If the accident involves a warranty or guarantee, the family may sue within either eight years or the length of time the warranty covers, whichever one is longer. The eight year deadline does not apply to construction accidents involving nuclear or hazardous waste facilities.

Although eight years sounds like a long time, it can pass quickly when you’re trying to piece your life back together after the loss of a loved one. If you suspect that another person or a company’s negligence was responsible for your loved one’s injuries, you should strongly consider hiring a skilled New Hampshire construction injury lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your legal rights and options are fully protected.
