Recoverable Expenses and Losses

NH Injury Attorneys Discuss Recoverable Expenses and Losses

According to the NH injury attorneys at the Law Office of Manning & Zimmerman PLLC, a principal goal of the civil justice system is to fairly compensate injured victims for the injuries they sustained as a result of someone else’s negligence. The purpose of a jury verdict of damages is to compensate you for the harms and losses suffered and to hold the defendant accountable for these damages so that the defendant and others will be more careful in the future – protecting us all.

In the case of a motor vehicle crash, this means that you should be compensated for any property damage, medical expenses, and lost wages occasioned by the defendant’s negligence, as well as awarding a sum that fairly and adequately compensates you for any pain and suffering that was caused by the crash. This typically includes:

Past expenses and losses
