How Wrongful Death Cases Work in New Hampshire

A person’s death is considered wrongful when it could have been prevented by another individual’s careless actions.

Certain surviving family members can recover monetary damages from the responsible party if they can prove the essential elements of a wrongful death claim. Since these cases are a type of personal injury case, the principles of negligence apply.

You must show:

  1. The other person or entity had a legal duty to exercise reasonable care;
  2. That party breached this duty;
  3. The breach was a direct cause of the accident which led to your loved one’s death; and
  4. You suffered losses as a result.

In addition, you must comply with the wrongful death statute of limitations in New Hampshire. You have six years from the date of death to file a lawsuit seeking compensation.

If you miss the deadline, you cannot recover monetary damages for your losses.
