Corby has long been considered an important centre of industry in Northamptonshire, with a significant steel presence in the early half of the last century. Known as ‘Little Scotland’ because of the high number of Scottish workers who moved to Corby for work, it continues to have a growing population. Whilst the steel industry has seen a huge decline, there are many other industries present in the area, each providing a risk of an accident in Corby, much like the rest of the UK. The information below will provide you with more details about what is involved when making a claim for compensation following a workplace accident.
