Following an Accident…your questions answered

We are currently running a campaign with our local newspaper the Bury Times, where we answer some of the most common questions that people have following an accident.

We are aware that many of our clients are also based out of the local area. With that in mind, here are the first couple of questions.

A dedicated questions page has also been added to our website.

What next?

Q: I have had a car accident and the other driver’s insurers have contacted me. They have offered me £1000 to settle my claim. My neck and my back are hurting.

Should I just accept the money to avoid the hassle?

A: The thought of getting your compensation early is a tempting one.

However, matters settled this way can often be undervalued by THOUSANDS of pounds. Insurance companies want cases dealt with quickly. To do this, they make what
seems to be a generous offer soon after the accident.

Unfortunately, many problems resulting from Road Traffic Accidents do not come
to light until much later. Settle early and you could miss out
on further compensation. This money could help with unforseen medical bills, transport costs and time off work. Leaving you out of pocket.

This is seen as such an important topic that The Law Society ran a campaign recently to stress that an accident victim should ALWAYS consult a solicitor before accepting any offer made.

See our previous post for more details.


There is no hassle to worry about!

Most cases can be dealt with by conversations over the telephone.

Don’t forget, though, that if you are in the area, you can always pop in at any time to discuss your claim.


Q: I think that I might have a claim for personal injury, but I am worried about the costs. How much will making a claim cost me?

A: Your initial advice is FREE. We can assess whether or not you have a claim at
that point.

Cases are run on a No-Win, No-Fee basis. If your claim is ultimately
unsuccessful, you do not have to worry about paying a fee for our work.

However, government changes last April mean that the costs of instructing a
solicitor may now be taken from any compensation that you receive.

For that reason, we suggest that you contact us for more information. We will then be able to discuss the options that are open to you.
