Nashua Auto Accident Lawyer
Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve in Nashua, Manchester & Concord, NH
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle crash, it’s vital to act promptly and call the Office of Attorney Mark Rufo as soon as possible. Things move quickly after an accident. You must take action to protect yourself as much as possible.
Furthermore, you may think you can talk to the insurance adjuster yourself and straighten it out on your own. However, it is essential to understand that these companies are not in the business of giving out money. They’re in the business of making money. While an adjuster might offer to cut you a check immediately, it generally won’t be enough to fully cover all of your losses and damages.
You need an experienced lawyer on your side, looking out for you. That will ensure that you won’t be taken advantage of by insurers whose sole aim is to pay you as little as possible. At our firm, we ensure that our vulnerable injured clients are not disadvantaged by a lack of knowledge of how the insurance game is played. Our attorney will fight to hold at-fault parties and their insurers accountable for the full extent of what you rightfully deserve in compensation.
Auto Accident Claims in New Hampshire
Unfortunately, car accidents occur every day in our state and are the leading cause of personal injury claims. They are typically caused by human error and can involve multiple parties who may have contributed to the accident, from a distracted driver to a negligent car manufacturer who has installed defective parts.
Common causes of traffic accidents include:
- Running red lights or rolling through stop signs
- Failure to yield
- Improper lane changes
- Drunk and/or drugged driving
- Distracted driving, such as texting or using a cell phone
- Fatigued driving
- Other traffic law violations
These are all forms of negligence, which is the underlying principle of all injury claims.
In terms of compensation, you may be entitled to damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. The extent of the compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your injuries, their impact on your life, and whether you were partially at fault.
New Hampshire operates under a "modified comparative negligence" rule. This means that even if you're partially at fault for the accident, you can still recover damages. However, your compensation will be reduced by an amount that is equal to your percentage of fault. So, if you're awarded a $10,000 settlement and you were found to be 20% at fault, you would receive $8,000.

You Can’t Lose by Making the Call
Instead of trying to take on the insurance company yourself, let us deal with it on a professional basis which is statistically shown to give injury victims better results. We have resolved thousands of cases for our clients resulting in millions of dollars in damages since 1979.
How much is my case worth?Every case is unique, and how much compensation you are eligible to receive depends on what evidence we can gather — so we can’t guarantee a certain amount. We can guarantee, however, that we will fight for every last penny you are entitled to for your medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Why can’t I just accept the insurance company’s offer?Insurance companies make their money cheating you. Claims agents are trained to get you to agree to the lowest possible amount, so the company can continue to maximize its profit. The only way to look out for your best interests and ensure that you receive fair compensation is to seek counsel from an attorney who is experienced in standing up to these insurance companies.
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.
