Earlier this month, an accident between a motorhome and a passenger car resulted in two of the vehicles’ occupants being hospitalized with severe injuries. Accidents such as these often result in serious, life-changing injuries for those involved. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit may provide accident victims with meaningful compensation, allowing them to more easily move on with their lives after the collision.
According to a recent news report, at around 11:45 a.m., law enforcement officers received a call reporting a two-vehicle accident on Route 3A in Hill, New Hampshire. Evidently, a Honda Accord was traveling south when the driver began to drift into the northbound lane. At the same time, a motorhome was approaching. Because the Accord was encroaching into the motorhome’s lane, the driver of the motorhome tried to swerve in an attempt to avoid a collision. However, the driver of the motorhome was unable to do so, and the vehicles collided. As a result, the motor home went off the highway and burst into flames.
The driver of the motor home was able to exit the vehicle before it became completely engulfed in flames. However, the driver of the Accord had to be extricated by an emergency crew. Both drivers suffered serious injuries in the collision and had to be hospitalized as a result. Thankfully, both are expected to make a full recovery.
Recovering Compensation After a New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Accident
After suffering injuries in a New Hampshire car accident, you may have missed a significant amount of work and will likely face hefty medical bills. However, it may not be immediately clear where to turn for help.
Under New Hampshire law, accident victims can bring a personal injury lawsuit against those they believe are responsible for their injuries. To successfully bring a personal injury claim, an accident victim must prove that the other party violated a duty of care that was owed to them and that the other driver’s breach of that duty resulted in the accident victim’s injuries.
While proving a car accident lawsuit may sound straightforward in theory, in practice, it can be challenging. This is because the other driver’s insurance company will often contest an accident victim’s claim, for example, by arguing that they shared responsibility for the accident or that their injuries were not as serious as they claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help accident victims through the recovery process, increasing their likelihood of success.
