The town of Bury in Greater Manchester lies just 7.9 miles from Manchester, close to Rochdale and Bolton. In 2015, the Metropolitan Borough of Bury had a population of 78,723. Once known for its textile manufacturing, today Bury is famous for its black pudding and the open air market. There’s a memorial to Robert Peel, the founder of the Metropolitan Police outside the parish church. If you have been injured in a car accident in Bury then you might be left wondering if there’s anything you can do. If you were injured and somebody else was to blame then you could find yourself entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and any financial losses you have experienced.
Bury car accident claims – how much could you get?
It’s very hard to say how much compensation you could get for accidents on the road in Bury; that’s because every single accident claim is unique. If you have been injured and you’re considering claiming compensation then you obviously want to find out what the average settlement for Bury car accident claims is. However, there really isn’t such a thing as a ‘one size fits all’ claim. The best way to find out how much compensation you could be entitled to after your accident is to take the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website – this will give you a rough idea of what you could claim. If you then decide to go ahead with a claim, you should get in touch with us within three years of your accident, as this is the deadline in place for all claims.
How have you been injured?
Bury car accident claims can be made for almost any type of injury from minor injuries like whiplash, cuts and bruises right through to serious, life-changing injuries like a head or spinal injury. We often hear from people with more serious injuries, but find that those with minor injuries don’t realise they are eligible to make a claim. The good news is that even if you have walked away with minor whiplash, you can still claim compensation if somebody else was responsible for your accident. In fact, whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in road traffic accidents.
Should you claim compensation?
It’s really a personal decision whether or not to make a personal injury claim after your accident. But remember that if somebody else’s negligence led to your accident then you are entitled to compensation, and nobody will make a claim for it but you.
