Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition defines Negligence as the “failure to use such care as a reasonably prudent and careful person would use under similar circumstances.” Negligence may refer to recklessness or the failure to use a reasonable level of care. There are various circumstances in which one can be negligent, but in personal injury cases, Negligence refers to the actions of the person or entity that directly led to the personal injury of the victim. A successful personal injury claim requires the victim to prove that negligence was the cause of her injuries. If negligence can be proven, the victim may be compensated for damages. Our attorney can help you through a successful claim.

Sometimes, the victim may have contributed to the cause of the accident or event that resulted in the injuries. In such a case, it is said that the victim was contributorily negligent. Sometimes, the victim’s contributory negligence may affect the recovery of damages. In New Hampshire, contributory negligence does not prevent the claimant from recovering damages if it is proven that the defendant’s negligence is greater than the claimant’s negligence. The amount of damages recovered, however, will likely be reduced depending on the level of negligence on the part of the claimant. A successful claimant who wishes to obtain sufficient damages will need to prove that the other party was wholly or more negligent.
