Like all other states, New Hampshire has its own laws for personal injury cases. These laws govern how and when your claim for injuries might be heard.
Settlements in personal injury cases are usually lump sum payments in return for a dismissal of the case and termination of all litigation. They might also involve structured settlements that are paid over time. When a plaintiff settles a case, he or she will sign off on a release of claims that forever discharges the defendant(s) from any further liability as a result of the accident. An order is entered in court, dismissing the case, and the defendant’s attorneys forward a settlement check to the plaintiff’s attorneys.
If the parties aren’t able to settle, the decision on liability and damages will be made in a trial. In court, both sides present witnesses and evidence and receive a verdict, which will be entered for one of the parties and against the other. If the verdict is entered in favor of the injured person, monetary damages are awarded. If the plaintiff is found to be partially responsible for the accident, the percentage of negligence attributable to them is deducted from the gross award. If the plaintiff is deemed to be 50% or more at fault, their case fails.
Personal injury cases are highly technical and get complicated quickly. Don’t give up any of your rights to the other side. To assure that your rights are protected, contact Gottesman & Hollis as soon as possible after an accident.
