New Hampshire Car Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured in an auto accident? If so, it's important to obtain the representation of a skilled attorney as soon as possible. As the victim of an auto accident, you have the right to collect compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, lost earning capacity, hospitalization, and medical bills. An experienced car accident attorney can ensure you have the high-quality representation you need to file a successful claim and recover a large settlement.

At Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey, we have been handling auto accident cases for over 30 years, and have the experience and skill to effectively represent someone who has been injured in a car accident. Under New Hampshire personal injury law, victims of auto accidents are entitled to be compensated if it can be proven that the accident was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another. From our experience, the majority of car accidents are caused by such acts of negligence as:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Running a red light or stop sign

While most auto accident lawsuits are filed against the driver responsible for causing the accident, an auto accident claim can also be brought against the vehicle manufacturer if a defect in the victim's car led to the accident. Likewise, if the accident was caused by some type or road or traffic signal problem, the city or county responsible for maintaining the roads, traffic lights, and traffic signals can also be held liable.

Practice Areas

Bicycle Accidents
If you were the victim of a bicycle accident in New Hampshire, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Many of the injuries sustained after this type of accident may not become evident until days or weeks after the incident. In order to avoid this becoming a problem, seek medical attention and counsel from an attorney immediately after the accident so that your rights are protected.

Boat Accidents
Many accidents involving boats can lead to devastating consequences as drowning is a constant threat. Even if the victims did not die from the accident, nearly drowning can lead to permanent brain damage due to lack of oxygen. Sometimes these accidents are caused because the driver was boating under the influence and other times it is due to reckless driving. Whatever the reason, you should not have to suffer because of the actions of another.

Bus Accidents
If you were injured in a bus accident, you could be suffering from multiple types of injuries. If the accident was caused by the negligence or carelessness of the bus driver or bus company, they could be liable for your injuries and medical costs. Examples of recklessness include: driver fatigue, driver distraction, failing to yield, and inadequate training.

Car Accidents
One of the most common causes of injury in the U.S. is car accidents. Not only do victims face hefty medical bills, lost wages, and loss of earning potential, but they could also be left with permanent disabilities. According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, someone is involved in a car accident. If you were one of these victims, contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Defective Seatbelt
One of the causes of injury in a car accident is defective seatbelts. Although the only goal of a seatbelt is to protect the one wearing it, sometimes it does not perform as desired. If there was a defect in the design or manufacturing of the product, the company responsible could be liable for the accident. Examples of seatbelts malfunctioning include: false latching, inertial unlatching, poor seatbelt geometry, ripped stitching, and retractor failure.

Motorcycle Accidents
In a traffic collision involving a motorcycle, it is the motorcyclist that usually suffers the most. Compared to other vehicles, they have no protection and are easily thrown from their bike. Sometimes these accidents are caused because of the fact that other drivers are usually only on the lookout for cars and trucks. They often forget to be aware of their surroundings and notice cyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists.

Pedestrian Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, more than 4,600 pedestrians were killed and 70,000 injured in one year in the U.S. This staggering number is partly the result of distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and fatigued drivers. If you were injured or lost a loved one because of the negligence or carelessness of another, you could be entitled to compensation.

Trucking Accidents
A traffic accident involving a truck is one of the most serious types of collisions. Due to the sheer weight and size of these vehicles, other vehicles do not have much protection against them. Truck drivers spend hours behind the wheel every week. Although there are regulations which stipulate how many hours truck drivers are allowed to work each week, some companies choose not to comply with these laws.

Uninsured Motorists
A factor that can lead to further complications in a car accident is in regards to insurance. There are many people on our roads today who are not covered by an insurance company, even though it is required by law. If you were involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist, where do you turn for help? Who is responsible to pay for the damages? An attorney from our firm could review your case and fight to get your justice.

Wrongful Death
When you are faced with the loss of a loved one, no amount of compensation will be able to make up for what you have gone through. However, it is important that you do everything possible to ensure that the same thing does not happen to someone else. A New Hampshire wrongful death lawyer could fight to secure justice for you and your family.

If you are the victim of an auto accident, you can depend on Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey to provide you with the dedicated service and experienced representation you need throughout the legal process. You can trust that we will do the hard work necessary to collect evidence, establish fault, and prove negligence.
