Manchester Attorneys Representing Parties in Personal Injury Lawsuits and Other Claims

Unexpected injuries often impair every aspect of a person’s life, causing not only physical wounds but also financial and emotional losses. In most cases, harmful accidents are caused by recklessness, and people who cause harmful accidents may be held accountable for damages caused by their careless behavior. If you suffered losses due to the negligent acts of another party, the knowledgeable Manchester personal injury attorneys of Stephen Law Group can assist you in pursuing the full amount of compensation recoverable under the law. We frequently assist people in personal injury lawsuits in Manchester as well as in other cities in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine.

Personal Injury

Most personal injuries are caused by accidents brought about by careless behavior. Thus, many people seeking damages in a personal injury lawsuit will allege a negligence claim against the defendant. Under New Hampshire and Massachusetts law, a plaintiff seeking damages under a theory of negligence must demonstrate that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care and that the defendant’s acts or failure to act constitute a breach of the duty. The plaintiff then must prove show that the breach caused actual harm.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injuries, but in most cases, they can be avoided through the exercise of due care. For example, many car accidents are caused by unsafe driving. Car accidents may also be caused by dangerous roads, defective cars, or multiple factors. Irrespective of the cause of a car accident, a plaintiff that proves liability for a car accident in a personal injury may be awarded compensation for the economic harm caused by the accident, such as the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and out-of-pocket expenses, and for any noneconomic harm as well, such as the suffering and pain endured due to injuries caused by the accident.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving commercial trucks typically cause catastrophic harm. In many instances, they are caused by the truck driver’s failure to comply with safety regulations regarding maximum drive times, truck weight limits, and pre-trip or post-trip inspections. Truck accidents can also be caused by reckless driving, such as speeding or following too closely behind other vehicles. In many instances, a person injured in a truck accident will be able to pursue claims against the truck driver, and if the truck driver was working on behalf of a trucking company at the time of the accident, against the trucking company as well.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists face a higher risk of accidents than other motorists, in part because other motorists often fail to provide motorcyclists with proper respect and strike them from behind or on the side or turn in front of motorcyclists without sufficient clearance. The injuries caused by motorcycle collisions include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and injuries to internal organs.

Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes are frequently tasked with caring for older members of society and have a duty to provide care that is competent and thorough. In many instances, however, nursing homes breach the duties they owe to their residents, causing significant harm. Signs of nursing home negligence include dehydration, malnutrition, cognitive impairments, and frequent falls. When a person alleges a nursing home negligently caused a resident harm, they will typically rely on the nursing home’s own records as well as expert testimony to support the claim against the nursing home.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment claims can encompass a wide range of behaviors, from inappropriate comments or jokes to unwanted physical contact or sexual coercion. Employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe and respectful work environment free from harassment and discrimination based on sex. Victims of sexual harassment may be able to recover a variety of damages in civil claims filed against their employers.
