Car Accidents In New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit for a car accident is three years (3) from the date of the accident. This means that you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit seeking damages for any injuries or losses that you sustained as a result of the accident. If you do not file your lawsuit within this time period, you may be barred from pursuing your claim.

It is important to note that there are some exceptions to this general rule. For example, if the defendant (the person you are suing) is a government agency, the deadline to file a lawsuit might be much shorter.
