If you or a loved one have been injured in an automobile accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your loss. Under New Hampshire law, if a driver fails to exercise proper safety caution while driving, and as a result causes an accident, he or she may be held liable for damages.
A car accident can stem from a number of negligent acts, such as:
- Talking on a cell phone or texting
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Reckless driving
- Driving while distracted
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Failing to yield
- Following too closely
Another significant cause of automobile accidents in New Hampshire is driving on snow and ice. Excessive speed or following another vehicle too closely can cause a vehicle to spin out of control or slide into another vehicle when the weather conditions are poor. In the wake of a collision, the best way to ensure a recovery is by contacting an experienced auto accident firm.
No matter the cause, if you’ve been hurt in a collision, call Injury Law Center® at (603) 883-4100.Seatbelts = Number One Safety Feature
New Hampshire is the only state which does not require wearing seat belts for adults over 18. While not required, it is strongly suggested that occupants of a vehicle buckle up for safety. According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), seat belts save more than 13,000 lives each year. Seat belts have been the number one safety feature in vehicles that help you survive a crash.
However, seat belts have been known to cause injuries as well. The most common seat belt related injuries are chest contusions, bruises, dislocations and fractures (more common with children) and internal injuries.

New Hampshire is one of only two states that does not require all drivers to have an automobile insurance policy in place. If you don’t have automobile insurance and weren’t at fault for the accident, you can still bring a claim against the driver who hit you, assuming that they had insurance. If you were hit by a driver who was uninsured, call our firm to learn about your options.
If you do have auto insurance, you will most likely have MedPay – that is medical payments. Each policy differs but most policies start with $1,000 in standard coverage. MedPay is an alternative source of medical payment coverage.
- If you have health insurance, MedPay can help you cover your out of pocket expenses from copays, coinsurance, and not covered procedures.
- If you don't have health insurance, MedPay can be a source of medical bill payments and thereby reduce your out of pocket expenses.
MedPay is paid directly to the policyholder and not the medical provider so you are still responsible for ensuring that your medical providers get paid. MedPay is available for any accident related treatment you receive within one year of the crash.
Your auto insurance policy may also have under-insurance or un-insurance coverage. This applies if you are hit by a driver who does not have insurance, if you are hit by a driver whose insurance is not adequate to settle your claim, or if you are hit by a hit-and-run driver.Regain Your Financial, Emotional, and Physical Stability
