Accomplished New Hampshire Attorney Aggressively Pursues Injury Claims for Road Accidents

Reputable New Hampshire lawyer handles a wide range of auto accident cases

Many accident victims do not fully understand their legal right to sue for compensation. At the Law Office of Bainbridge D. Testa, PLLC, I help auto accident victims throughout New Hampshire seek fair compensation for their injuries and assist clients with many types of claims, including cases stemming from motorcycle accidents, car accidents and commercial trucking accidents. I have extensive experience litigating these cases and utilize proven strategies that consistently produce good results. Whether you were hit crossing the street, sustained severe injuries in a head-on car crash or suffered permanent disabilities from a motorcycle accident, I will use my skill and experience to pursue a result that holds the liable party accountable.

What are the most common injuries in motorcycle accidents?

Motorcyclists are heavily exposed when driving on the road, and despite taking every precaution, they may still be involved in an accident. The following are injuries motorcycle riders commonly experience and reflect the damage larger vehicles can inflict:

  • Loss of limbs
  • Back injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Skull fractures

Persuasive and effective advocacy is pivotal to securing fair compensation, and I am highly skilled at negotiating with insurance companies and arguing in the courtroom.

What actions count as negligence in a car accident?

Drivers have a legal duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner to minimize the risk of harming others. Unfortunately, irresponsible motorists can cause serious accidents. Demonstrating that the defendant driver was negligent might be necessary to collect damages to account fully for the losses incurred by a victim. Actions frequently associated with negligent driving are:

  • Speeding
  • Breaking traffic laws
  • Texting/talking on the phone
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving while fatigued

Negligent drivers might raise a series of excuses as to why they are not responsible. I know how to combat these tactics and build strong arguments to strengthen your case for compensation.

When can you sue for a trucking accident injury?

Trucking accidents frequently produce catastrophic injuries, and compensation is usually essential to address medical costs, lost income and other types of harm stemming from the crash. In most New England states, the other side must be at least 51 percent at fault to obtain compensation. Rhode Island allows recovery if the other side shares any amount of responsibility. In all states, the amount you may collect is reduced in proportion to any fault assigned to you for the collision. Determining fault in trucking accidents is often complex, and I work with highly skilled experts to investigate these cases.

Where do pedestrian accidents most often occur?

Pedestrians share the road with vehicles every day, but if there is an accident, the human body stands little chance of walking away unscathed. Common locations pedestrian accidents occur include:

  • Bike lanes
  • Intersections
  • Sidewalks
  • Medians
  • Parking lots

If you were the victim in a pedestrian accident, you need an attorney who understands how insurance companies work, and I know how to anticipate their tactics and overcome claim denials.
