Kettering is both a town in Northamptonshire and a borough in the same county. The name is believed to mean “the place of Ketter’s people.” The town has its origins in Roman times with the remains now lying under the modern town. In those times it was a centre of iron-smelting and pottery making. The Saxons were in the area in the 5th century AD although the first written mention of the town was in 956, and in the Domesday Book of 1086 it was listed as Cateringe. Like other places in Northamptonshire, Kettering was a centre of the woollen trade and then later, of the boot and shoe industry, although this fell into decline in the latter half of the 20th century.
Do you need an accident solicitor in Kettering?
If you have been injured in an accident, you might be looking for an accident solicitor in Kettering. In order to make a personal injury compensation claim you and your accident solicitor in Kettering have to be able to prove both that you were not to blame for the accident and that another person was at fault. If the police were called to the scene of the accident then they will have investigated its causes and written an accident report; you will need this if you are to make a claim.
After an accident, you should have received medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible and the medical report will also be needed as it is this which details the extent and severity of your injuries and is used to calculate the amount of compensation you could receive for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. This is just one amount of the total compensation you could receive. Your accident solicitor in Kettering will need these documents if you are eligible to make a claim for your injuries.
How much compensation will I get?
It is impossible to say how much compensation you may be awarded with any degree of accuracy, as a number of factors have to be taken into account. However, you could take half a minute to do the 30-Second Test which you will find on the main pages of our website, and this will rapidly calculate a rough estimate of the amount you may receive. When you have an idea of how much you could receive in compensation for your injuries, you may wish to call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
