Are you a New Hampshire resident with an upcoming personal injury lawsuit?
Plaintiffs facing a lengthy legal battle often face significant financial strain. Here at Nova Legal Funding, our team is on hand to offer immediate pre-settlement funding.
The duration of these cases can prove difficult for plaintiffs who have to contend with mounting court costs as well as everyday expenses such as rent and bills. This can be even more problematic if you’ve sustained an injury that’s left you unable to work, and therefore unable to cover necessary payments. Insurance companies have been known to delay proceedings in a bid to make clients settle earlier and for less.
Our lawsuit funding provides the financial stability required to negotiate a fair settlement. We can get the cash you need within 24 hours of approval of your application, meaning there is no risk in applying for lawsuit funding in New Hampshire. Get in touch with our team at any point in your lawsuit for quick and easy funding.

Litigation funding is permitted in New Hampshire. Unlike many states, the courts have long disregarded the champerty doctrine, an illegal agreement whereby a person or entity finances a lawsuit they had no previous interest in. As this practice is not recognized, relevant case law establishes that lawsuit funding agreements in New Hampshire should be enforceable. Nova Legal Funding prominently discloses all terms and conditions in its pre-settlement contracts.
New Hampshire Personal Injury Law: How Does it Affect Legal Funding?
Under New Hampshire’s statute of limitation, personal injury victims have three years to bring their case to the courts. If you don’t file a case against those responsible within this time, it’s unlikely the court will hear your case, and no compensation will be granted. Injured parties also have three years to file a claim against a government agency or employee, though this must be in the county where the injury was sustained. This can only happen provided the personal injury victim has already filed a formal claim and did so within 180 days of their injury. However, there are only particular claims that can be made against the government. For example, the government will not be held liable for injuries related to snow and ice without proof they are somehow responsible.
New Hampshire courts use the modified comparative fault doctrine to determine how much compensation will be granted and who will pay it. A party deemed to be 75% at fault will have to pay the same proportion of the total damages. This system means that payment will be split between every person or entity responsible. However, the figure will be reduced according to how much the plaintiff is to blame for the accident. Therefore, if the courts find them to be 25% responsible, they lose 25% of their damages. If they are found to be 50% or more at fault, they will be barred from claiming anything.
There are no restrictions regarding how much compensation a plaintiff can obtain in a personal injury case.
Residents of New Hampshire could find themselves in court if their dog caused injury to another person. This is not common in all states, but dog owners in New Hampshire are ‘strictly liable’ no matter how their pet has behaved in the past.
