Determining Liability in Pedestrian Accidents
A personal injury lawsuit is a civil legal action filed by the victim of an accident. Most personal injury lawsuits include at least one claim for negligence, which is the legal term for carelessness. If someone fails to exercise reasonable care in a given situation and causes injuries, he or she can be held liable for their actions in court.
Most pedestrian accidents involve some form of negligence. For example, a driver who strikes a pedestrian in a crosswalk is likely to be found to have acted negligently by a court of law. The driver and their insurance company may be required to pay the victim for their injuries and other losses.
New Hampshire Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury
It is important to understand that you must file a personal injury lawsuit within a specific timeframe, which is known as the statute of limitations. In New Hampshire, the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is three (3) years from the date of your injury. If you don’t file by the end of the statute of limitations, you will be unable to pursue compensation. Our attorneys can explain how the statute of limitations applies to your case.
