If an act of recklessness or negligence led to the death of a friend or family member, you may be able to file a New Hampshire Wrongful Death Lawsuit to seek compensation for the pain, suffering, and financial losses associated with the death.
Here in New Hampshire, wrongful death damages are assessed by a complex formula. The assessor takes into account the pain and suffering of both the person who died and the survivors, the projected amount of future income lost, funeral and burial expenses, legal fees, medical bills, and a host of other sundry costs. Other factors which may weighed include the number of dependents, the range and types of insurance coverage on the deceased, the age and health of the deceased, and the emotional effect the death will have on the surviving spouse and children.
A wrongful death claim is a civil matter -- not a criminal matter. Thus, the claim must be supported by "a preponderance of the evidence." (In criminal cases, a plaintiff must win the legal debate "beyond a reasonable doubt" – a stricter standard.)
