Is Your Claim Worth a Lot?

It is natural to wonder how much your personal injury claim could be worth. Will you be paid several thousand dollars from the person who crashed into you, for example? Or will you be owed several hundred thousand dollars from them instead? The answer lies in the details of your case.

Because each case is unique, it is difficult to predict how much your case will be worth. What is more important than guessing how much you could be given is working with a team that knows how to fight for the most amount of compensation possible, whatever that might be. Our legal team can carefully navigate your case to make sure that you don’t lose a dollar unclaimed because your case was mishandled. When we manage a case, we act as if we are representing ourselves.

You could be owed compensation that helps pay for past and future:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Property replacement costs
  • Lost wages and income
  • Pain, suffering, and disability

How is Liability Split in New Hampshire?

In New Hampshire, there is a modified comparative negligence rule with a 51% threshold for personal injury claims. Under this rule, you cannot make a recovery against a defendant if you were at least 51% liable for your accident, injury, and damages. Furthermore, any recovery that you do make will be reduced by your percentage of liability as long as it is 50% or less.

Liability is decided through careful investigations and negotiations. We want to keep your liability down to the absolute minimum, which would give you the best chance of receiving the most compensation from the defendant. In many of the cases we have handled, we’ve been able to prove that our client was 0% liable.

Ready to Advocate & Litigate for You

You don’t want to get into the heavy details of an injury claim. You just want to get the money that you know you deserve. To pursue the most compensation possible for your case without losing any hair or sleep from the stresses of case management, team up with our personal injury lawyers in Peterborough. When you leave us in charge of your case, you can sit back and relax in knowing that your claim is being managed by a team that genuinely cares about your future health, comfort, and overall well-being.
