The mission statement of our personal injury law firm is “devastating losses call for exceptional litigators”. We have built a reputation of being the go-to personal injury law firm in Nashua. We are also some of the premier personal injury lawyers in Manchester and southern New Hampshire. Our firm is capable of successfully handling high-stakes litigation cases with catastrophic injuries. We earned that reputation by obtaining life-changing results for our clients. Most firms can’t make that statement. Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases, regardless of their size. In many circumstances, our results far exceed those of our peers.
Clients come to our team of New Hampshire personal injury lawyers during one of the most arduous times in their lives. They are in pain, they are suffering, and their future is filled with uncertainty. Some of the questions we hear are: “What’s going to happen if I don’t get better? How am I going to pay for all these medical bills? What am I going to do for money if I can’t go back to work?”
To make matters worse, these people are up against formidable opponents. These include massive insurance companies whose purpose is to pay them as little as they can get away with. Large hospitals who go on the defensive once they are accused of making mistakes. And intimidating defense attorneys whose goal is to make you feel guilty for seeking justice.
These clients need a legal team in their corner that has their back. Zealous advocates ready to champion their cause. Savvy practitioners who have maneuvered through the legal system countless times before. Empathetic supporters who understand their struggles and will listen to their story. If that describes your situation, look no further.
The following is an informative overview of some of the cases our New Hampshire personal injury lawyers specialize in:
Vehicular accident cases require an intricate understanding of insurance coverage. Oftentimes, car accident cases are limited to the available bodily injury (BI) coverage. Most people are under the impression that the defendant should immediately cover the property damage and medical bills. While that is logical, it is not the case. The claimant’s own collision insurance covers their property damage. The BI carrier reimburses them behind the scenes in a process called subrogation. The claimant’s own Medpay insurance (if available) and their own health insurance (if available) covers their medical bills.
The BI coverage only comes into play when the claimant is ready to settle their case. Sometimes the BI policy is not enough. Under those circumstances, the attorney can tap into the claimant’s underinsured motorist (UM) coverage. The accident lawyer must have an intricate understanding of UM insurance to maximize recovery.
In truck accident cases, we typically see commercial policies that have $1,000,000 in coverage. Our team of personal injury lawyers in Nashua are very comfortable dealing with these numbers.
Medical malpractice occurs when the patient’s physician, or other medical professional, “deviates from the standard of care”. The legal definition is “the degree of care or competence that one is expected to exercise in a particular circumstances or role”. Physicians deviate from the standard of care when their actions fall below what is expected of the average physician. For the deviation to be actionable, it must be “causally related” to the patient’s injury. A favorable medical outcome is not guaranteed. The mere fact that a patient has a poor result does not constitute medical malpractice.
Wrongful death occurs when an individual dies because of someone else’s negligence. Under those circumstances, the decedent’s estate has an actionable claim against the negligent party. Close family members also have claims for loss of consortium, or loss of a familial relationship. Wrongful death involves any underlying claim that results in a fatality.
Catastrophic injury is a term of art used within the legal practice and the insurance industry. It is an injury that is so horrific that the victim will require treatment for the rest of their life. These are typically high value cases that require expert witnesses in life care planning and economics. The insurance industry considers these “high risk” cases that have the potential for a “nuclear” verdict. The stakes are always high in a catastrophic injury case.
It is crucial to understand that many attorneys are not able to competently work up complex cases. They do not take the time to “learn the medicine,” they do not know how to find the right experts, and they do not have the capital reserves to fund these cases.
Most important, they view a serious case as an opportunity for them instead of a responsibility to the client.
