Personal Injury law serves people who have been injured or killed or who have sustained property damage due to someone else's wrongdoing or negligence. Under New Hampshire state law, you may seek compensation for your losses, including reimbursement for damages, medical care, lost wages, and other expenses incurred as result of the event. You can also seek compensation for emotional distress.
Common personal injury cases result from car accidents, property damage, physical or emotional injury such as assault and battery or someone defaming your reputation. Also personal injury actions can cover medical or legal mistakes. It is necessary that fault, liability or negligence be determined before any settlement can be made. An essential element is that there has to be some kind of damage. A car speeding past you at excessive high speed and just missing you would not rise to the level of personal injury even if you as the driver were scared.
Attorney Hall has been successful many times in obtaining monetary settlements for injured clients, usually without the need to go to trial.
If the matter cannot be settled then litigation can be commenced. Even after filing a lawsuit for personal injury, negotiations can still continue. There are strict time tables for filing personal injury cases (statute of limitations is typically three years), so the sooner an injured person consults with counsel the better.
Filing a law suit with the appropriate Court is both used as leverage and is necessary when the defendant denies liability.
Attorney Hall accepts personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. That mean that if a claim is successfully resolved and the party that injured you is ordered or agrees to pay a monetary settlement, Attorney Hall is paid a percentage of the settlement when the case is finalized.
As is customary in personal injury cases, Attorney Hall takes the risk up front that the case is good and a reasonable settlement can be made. However, the client is responsible for actual out-of-pocket expenses incurred during the case, such as filing fee, medical record costs and other miscellaneous costs.
