  • Veto By NH Gov. Keeps Personal Injury Lawyers From Making Millions On No-Injury Cases
August 11, 2020

New Hampshire’s governor Chris Sununu (R) has vetoed legislation that would have given personal injury lawyers a new way to file lawsuits, even when their clients haven’t been injured, according to a report in Legal Newsline.

Sununu vetoed the bill, which would have allowed medical monitoring claims, writing that it “would subject businesses to increased liability by creating a pathway for almost anyone exposed to hazardous or toxic substances to prove a claim for medical monitoring damages, regardless of the level, risk or consequences of exposure.”
