Barrow-in-Furness is in the county of Cumbria, once in the county of Lancashire. In the 19th century, Barrow-in-Furness was a hamlet, but in the space of a mere forty years it grew to become the biggest iron and steel producing centre in the world. Iron production has been undertaken in Barrow-in-Furness for centuries, as wood (or charcoal) was used to smelt iron by the monks from Furness Abbey in the 13th century.
Barrow-in-Furness is also a seaport. The ready availability of iron ore meant that Barrow-in-Furness was ideally located for the production of naval vessels like submarines.

Can you make an injury compensation claim?
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you sustained your injuries. You also need to prove that another person was responsible for the accident.
After any accident in which you were injured, you should have sought medical attention for your injuries. It is your doctor’s prognosis for your recovery upon which compensation for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries is based.
