Hundreds of people are injured every year in New Hampshire and Massachusetts due to hazardous conditions on private and public property. Premises liability law exists for this reason. It stipulates that New Hampshire property owners are responsible for a duty of care, ensuring their grounds are free of obvious and potential hazards that may cause harm to visitors. Generally speaking, there are four types of visitors.
Examples of social guests include friends or family who have been invited onto the premises by the owner for social reasons such as a party, intimate or non-intimate gathering, or event.
Examples of business patrons include individuals who were invited onto the property to do business or entered the property while it was open to the public in order to conduct business such as customers at a store or patrons at a public park.
Examples of trespassers include any criminal individual or individuals who were not invited onto the premises such as robbers, and also lawful “trespassers” such as squatters.
Examples of licensees include individuals who are on the property after receiving consent from the property owner; this can include people such as postal workers, plumbers, electricians, etc.
This is applicable despite the type of property owned, including private homes, government owned property, and corporately or privately owned stores. If you have been injured on another person’s property due to no fault of your own, you may be eligible to be compensated for medical bills, pain and suffering, or wrongful death of a person you lost.

If you become the victim of an injury that was caused by the negligence of another person or entity, it is best that you consult with an experienced law firm as soon as possible. In no other matter is immediacy as important as it is when dealing with a personal injury case that involves premises liability.
Generally, in New Hampshire, property owners are responsible for exercising ordinary care to keep their premises free of dangerous conditions, or to take all reasonable precautions to warn them of dangerous conditions on the premises. If the owner fails to do this, then the injured party has to work to find a law firm and file a lawsuit. The time limit to do this (also called the statute of limitations) in New Hampshire is three years, but the right law firm will want to waste no time compiling a strong case.
New Hampshire requires premises liability lawsuits be filed within three years from the date of the accident in most cases. Speaking with a lawyer as quickly as possible is paramount to the success of your lawsuit.
To win a lawsuit involving premises liability, New Hampshire plaintiffs must prove at least these things:
remises liability lawsuits are filed each and every day in New Hampshire. No matter where an injury occurred, we believe in holding liable parties responsible. When property owners, leasers, and occupants fail to maintain their premises, they raise the risk of injury for not only themselves but their guests.
