A police chase resulted in the death of 19-year-old Paige Garneau, a passenger in a stolen car. The driver of the car, 18-year-old Robert Pitts, suffered non-life threatening injuries. New Hampshire personal injury lawyer John Tenn explains that drivers in New Hampshire can be held accountable for the injuries and deaths they have caused. According to news reports, an off-duty police officer had spotted Pitts’ car and reported it to police before engaging in the pursuit. As the 10-mile chase ensued, speeds reached 75 mph. It ended when Pitts crashed into a number of trees, according to WHDH-TV 7 News (9/2/2012).
“In New Hampshire, victims of reckless driving or negligent driving accidents may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, future lost wages, physical impairment or disability, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life,” said Tenn.
People who have lost a family member in an New Hampshire car accident caused by the recklessness or negligence of another person may also recover compensation for the loss of their loved one. An experienced personal injury lawyer will review the facts and circumstances of each claim to determine the best possible course of action.
“A knowledgeable and experienced New Hampshire personal injury lawyer can help to identify all sources of available compensation and to secure that compensation for the damages, expenses and losses,” explained Tenn. If a loved one has been injured or killed in an auto accident due to the negligent or reckless driving of another, you may be able to receive damages on their behalf.
