The following sections contain some basic information about personal injury law. This page is not a substitute for speaking to an attorney – only a qualified New Hampshire lawyer can give you legal advice.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
A personal injury lawsuit is a civil legal action brought by an injured person against the party (or parties) responsible for his or her injuries. The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to secure money damages that take into account the injuries and other losses the victim suffered as a result of the accident.
Most personal injury lawsuits include at least one claim for negligence. Negligence is the legal term for carelessness. If you can prove that another party’s negligence caused you to suffer an injury, you may be entitled to money damages that take into account:
- The cost of past and future medical care;
- Pain and suffering;
- Lost wages and/or reduced earning capacity;
- Damage to your vehicle and other property; and
- Loss of life enjoyment.
A personal injury lawyer can help you better understand what damages might be available to you in a lawsuit filed after a bus accident.
