Kettering in Northamptonshire was formerly known as a centre of development for the boot and shoe industry in the UK, with much of the architecture of the era being the large homes of factory owners, and terraced streets for the workers. This industry went into decline in the 1970s and, since then, its economy has diversified, with many large businesses having their headquarters there.
Kettering has a growing commuter population, thanks to good rail links and its geographical situation. As a growing town, accidents are common in the area. If you were injured in an accident in Kettering and it was someone else’s fault, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the largest law firms in the UK and our Patron is well-loved TV personality and consumer rights champion Dame road safety initiatives, but it remains to be seen whether these will reduce the numbers of road traffic accidents in Kettering. Driving on the roads can be dangerous because, no matter how careful and considerate you are, some drivers will drive with reckless abandon or carelessness, putting other peoples’ lives at risk.
The most common causes of road traffic accidents across the UK are drivers speeding, driving under the influence of drink or drugs, or not paying attention, including using mobile phones while driving. If you were injured in an accident like this within the last three years and you’ve received medical attention for your injuries, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
A personal injury solicitor in Kettering could help you to make your claim but, if you’ve already experienced financial difficulty as a result, you could be worried about the cost of a solicitor. That’s why Accident Advice Helpline works on a no win no fee basis, meaning there are no upfront costs for you to start a claim.
Our Patron, Dame no win no fee policy represents the best opportunity for people to seek justice who would otherwise not be able to afford to take their claim to court, especially since legal aid has been stopped for those making compensation claims.

Whiplash accident in Kettering
Compared with other injuries sustained in road traffic accidents, whiplash might seem like a minor injury. However, it can cause painful symptoms, like headaches, muscle strain and pins and needles that, in some cases, can last over a year.
Not only that, but it’s also recognised that many of those who suffer from the long-term symptoms of whiplash can develop mental health problems as a result, including anxiety and depression. This is usually as a result of both the chronic pain experienced and the fact that some of those people may be prevented from working or taking part in social activities.
A claim for compensation following a whiplash accident in Kettering can not only compensate you for your physical injuries, but also any emotional ones you’ve experienced as a result. It’s a good idea to get expert help to make a claim but, while you could take on a personal injury solicitor in Kettering to help you, you can’t always be sure who has the specialist knowledge and experience you need.
If you don’t know who to trust, let us reassure you that you can trust Accident Advice Helpline. We have over 16 years’ experience of dealing solely with personal injury claims and, as well as having Dame 0800 689 5659.
