Medical Malpractice in New Hampshire

If you're injured or a loved one has been killed as a result of a doctor or nurse's negligence, you may be entitled to money under New Hampshire medical malpractice and personal injury laws. However, there's a limited period of time in which to file lawsuit, so you should hire a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible after being injured or discovering the injury.

Questions to Ask When Hiring a Lawyer

Before hiring a medical malpractice lawyer, you should schedule an initial consultation with the attorney. This preliminary meeting—which is usually free of charge—gives you and the lawyer the chance to get acquainted, and allows you to learn more about the attorney's experience. After the initial consultation, you can decide whether you'd like to hire the lawyer to handle your case.

Bring to the meeting copies of any relevant medical records and correspondence with the healthcare provider who injured you or the provider's medical malpractice insurance copy. Also, bring a list of questions you'd like the lawyer to answer. Questions you might ask an attorney include:

  • Do you only represent medical malpractice victims or do you also do other types of personal injury work?
  • Do you focus your work on a particular type of medical malpractice?
  • How long have you practiced law in New Hampshire and where did you attend law school?
  • What are my legal options? If I hire you, which approach would you recommend?
  • If my medical malpractice claim is successful, how much money could I expect to recover?
  • How do you charge for your services and how much can I expect to pay in legal fees?

As you talk with the lawyer, keep in mind that the information you provide to attorney is protected by New Hampshire legal confidentiality laws. Even if you end up hiring another med mal attorney, your discussion and medical records will remain private.
