Do I Have a Wrongful Death Case?

You may have a wrongful death case if you are able to prove that another person or entity's negligent actions or intentional actions caused an accident that caused the death of your loved one.

Why You Need a Wrongful Death Lawyer

Many people ask, “Do I need a lawyer?” You want someone with experience and a proven track record. Our lawyers include a former state Supreme Court and Superior Court judge, Charles G. Douglas, III. On top of that, he wrote the New Hampshire Evidence Manual, which is used by judges and lawyers across the state regarding evidence in court. This is the knowledge and experience you need to take on the insurance company, protect your rights, and get the compensation you deserve.

Family members tell us, “We don’t want this to happen to anyone else.” We have extensive experience in representing families in wrongful death actions, and we understand the difficult nature of these cases.

Whether the wrongful death is from a pedestrian hit by a drunk driver, a child struck by a careless motorist, or a death caused by a medical mistake, our wrongful death lawyers in Concord and Portsmouth will fight to hold those individuals or institutions accountable.

Do You Have To Deal With Insurance Companies For a Wrongful Death Case?

In a wrongful death case, you will typically be dealing with an insurance company. Insurance companies have teams of people working for them to try to pay the lowest amount for your claim. Don’t be at the mercy of the insurance company.

Nothing can replace a loved one, and no amount of money will bring back your loved one. But our laws allow you to seek justice and ensure that those responsible are held accountable.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in New Hampshire?

According to New Hampshire law, a spouse, child, parent, grandparent, or sibling may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. In cases where there is no surviving spouse, child, or parent a representative of the deceased’s estate may file a wrongful death claim, recoverable by the deceased’s next of kin.

In all wrongful death cases, the statute of limitations to file a claim is six years. This means you have six years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a claim, or you may lose your opportunity to do so.
