Corby in Northamptonshire has in the past been dubbed ‘little Scotland’ due to the large number of Scottish inhabitants there. Indeed, the 1961 census listed a third of the town’s inhabitants as Scottish-born after scores of migrants came to Corby in the 1930s for the steelworks. There’s more to Corby than steel and a close affinity with Scotland though. The town is located near some great tourist attractions such as the historic Kirby Hall an English Heritage site, and East Carlton Country Park where visitors can take a leisurely walk among the trees and wooden sculptures. However, before you head to Corby ensure that you take some steps to avoid having to make a travel accident compensation claim.
What kind of travel accidents occur in Corby?
One of the most common accidents that visitors to Corby encounter are slips, trips and falls while walking around the town. These can often be caused by wet weather and uneven pavements, or simply not concentrating on where you are putting your feet because you are so busy looking around. In order to avoid suffering an unwanted fall in public in Corby take precautions against bad weather such as wearing flat shoes with a strong grip on the sole, and keep an eye on young children to prevent them from tripping over.
Additionally, if driving to Corby for the first time it is advisable to plan your journey in advance to avoid suffering an injury on the road. The use of a satellite navigation system and keeping a map handy in the car will also help to avoid any last minute decision making on the road, reducing your risk of having a car accident.
