Personal Injury Damages Overview

New Hampshire Personal Injury Damages: Overview

If you have sustained an injury in New Hampshire as a result of someone else’s negligence, New Hampshire law entitles you to a recovery compensation for your injuries from the negligent party. The well-settled law in New Hampshire is that an injured person is entitled to a full, fair and adequate compensation for their losses.

What types of losses can be recovered?

Many types of losses and damages are recoverable in NH. The Court’s will consider damages which include pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, permanent disability, disfigurement, and catastrophic injury and death, among others.

Pain and Suffering

Most people are familiar with the phrase “pain and suffering”. Simply stated, in New Hampshire a person can recover monetary compensation for physical pain and mental anguish which they have suffered and will continue to suffer due to an accident. While there is no automatic formula for the calculation of “pain and suffering”, it often can be the most significant element of a client’s personal injury claim.

If you have been injured as result of someone else’s negligence, you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Tenn And Tenn, PA who can discuss the injuries and damages you have sustained.

Medical Bills

If you have been injured and suffered a permanent injury in New Hampshire, you are entitled receive compensation for the loss of bodily function and/or permanent disability. Examples of such injuries might include a catastrophic injury such as a brain injury, loss of cognitive ability, loss of speech, or paralysis. Other significant injuries might include the inability to lift your arm above chest level, or the inability to bend after an injury to your back.

Another common type of permanent injury is a physical disfigurement. These permanent injuries can be some of the most difficult for clients and their families to deal with, especially if the disfigurement is obvious and severe. These types of injuries include loss of a limb, facial scarring or scars to the body.

These types of permanent injuries and disfigurements can be severe and greatly limit your daily life. In most cases, these permanent injuries and disfigurements often require expert medical testimony to quantify the cause of your injury, the permanent nature of your injury, and the percentage of disability.

Wrongful Death

In New Hampshire, money damages are also recoverable for death cause by someone else’s negligence. Damages for “wrongful death” may be available to certain family members of the deceased person.

Wrongful death cases can be some of the most emotionally trying cases for clients who are grieving and who have lost a loved one. Wrongful death cases should be handled by experienced personal injury attorneys, who can guide you and your family through the legal process.
