Auto Accident Attorney in Manchester, New Hampshire

The involvement in a car accident can be tragic, resulting in costly damages, pain, and suffering. You may be asking yourself how to maintain such devastating outcomes. It starts with understanding New Hampshire's auto accident laws.

New Hampshire operates under a fault-based insurance system. This means the party found at fault for an auto accident is responsible for any resulting harm or damages. It's crucial to establish who's at fault to determine who bears the financial responsibility.

Our team at Kenison Law Office, PLLC is experienced in investigating accidents, determining fault, and fighting for our clients' compensation. We use our knowledge and resources to seek the best possible outcome after your accident.  

Your Options for Seeking Compensation 

When seeking compensation, you have three options in New Hampshire. All of them have the potential to assist with the financial burdens that come with an auto accident:  

  • Filing a Claim with Your Insurance Company: We can guide you through the process of filing a claim with your insurance company. This option is often used when the accident is minor or if you live in a no-fault state. 

  • Filing a Claim with the At-Fault Party's Insurance Company: If another party is at fault, we can help you file a claim with their insurer. This process involves negotiating with the other party's insurance company to reach a settlement. 

  • Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit: If negotiations fail or if the at-fault party's insurance coverage isn't sufficient to cover your damages, we can help you file a personal injury lawsuit. This option allows us to fight for your rights in court. 

Possible Damages 

  • Medical Expenses: This includes hospital bills, rehabilitation costs, prescription medication, future medical expenses related to the accident, and transportation costs for medical appointments. 

  • Lost Wages: If you've had to take time off work due to your injuries, you might be eligible to recover those lost earnings and any potential future income you might lose due to long-term injuries. 

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for pain and suffering takes into account the mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life you've experienced after the accident. 

  • Property Damage: If your car or any other property was damaged in the accident, you could be compensated for repairs or replacements. 

  • Loss of Consortium: If the accident has affected your relationship with your spouse, you may be able to claim for loss of companionship. 

  • Punitive Damages: In cases of reckless or intentional misconduct, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future.
