Personal Injury Services in Nashua, NJ
Also Fighting for the Injured in Manchester, Concord & Across the State
At the Office of Attorney Mark Rufo, we know that being injured in an accident is incredibly stressful. Along with physical pain and emotional trauma, you may have lost your job or be unable to fully work due to your injuries. You may also be facing major vehicle repairs or a replacement as well as spiraling medical expenses. You shouldn’t have to advocate for yourself in court on top of all this.
Attorney Mark Rufo has been entirely dedicated to representing personal injury claims for people like you since 1979. At our firm, we are committed to protecting our clients and getting them the compensation they deserve for all of their injury-related needs following an accident.
Our firm is exclusively devoted to personal injury law, which means we have accumulated extensive experience in handling claims and lawsuits, including dealing with insurance companies. We believe everyone should have a lawyer when faced with insurers who commonly use tactics designed to undervalue or deny your claim to protect themselves instead of you.
How long do I have to file my claim?
You should seek counsel from an attorney the moment you know you are injured. Depending on the accident, you may have up to three years to file a personal injury claim — but the longer you wait, the less evidence you may have and the less money you may be able to secure.

Do I have a personal injury claim or a workers’ compensation claim?You may have both! If you are injured at work or have developed an injury caused by repetitive stress or strain from your job, you are often eligible for workers’ compensation. But this only prevents you from suing your employer. If a third party caused the accident, you could have an additional personal injury claim against that party.
What if I can’t afford an attorney?Personal injury lawyers do not cost anything upfront. In fact, we get paid only when you do — and we receive only a percentage of the compensation we secure for you. This means that not only can you afford high-quality representation, but you know we will be fighting for the maximum possible recovery, because our own pay depends on it, too.
Our firm handles all types of personal injury and work-related injuries requiring workers’ compensation claims for benefits.
These cases include:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Premises liability (accidents occurring on someone else’s property)
- Injuries to children
- Catastrophic injuries
- Wrongful death
No matter the type of accident, you deserve compensation to help you move forward.
Potential Damages in New Hampshire Injury Cases
Victims of personal injury may be entitled to several types of potential compensation. The types and amounts will vary depending on the specifics of your case. They include compensation for both economic damages that can be verified by receipts and bills, as well as non-economic damages that are subjective.
These can include:
Medical Expenses: This covers the cost of medical care related to the injury, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and any future medical needs stemming from the injury.
Pain and Suffering: This is compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress suffered due to the injury. It's subjective and can vary greatly from case to case.
Lost Wages: If you were unable to work due to your injuries, you could be compensated for the wages you would have earned during that time.
Loss of Earning Capacity: If the injury has resulted in a decreased ability to earn income in the future, additional compensation may be awarded.
Property Damage: This involves damage to your vehicle or other personal property that can be the result of negligence-based accidents.
Consequential and Incidental Expenses: These cover out-of-pocket costs related to the injury, such as travel expenses for medical appointments or modifications to a home or vehicle to accommodate a disability.
Enhanced Compensatory Damages: In certain cases where the at-fault party's actions were especially malicious, wanton, or oppressive, the court may award enhanced damages to compensate for the aggravating circumstances of the injury. These are commonly referred to as punitive damages.
For those who have suffered permanent disability in catastrophic injury cases, all of these types of compensation could potentially apply. You might also be eligible for additional compensation related to the long-term impacts of your disability, such as ongoing medical care, assistive devices, and home health care.
