    Kettering Accident Claim

    Kettering is a town found within the ceremonial county of Northamptonshire, in the central part of England. The town is located approximately 81 miles (130 km) from London and sits on the western bank of the River Ise.

    The name of the settlement now known as Kettering alternated between variations such as Cytringan, Kyteringas and Keteiringan, and for a long time the origins of any of these names were much debated. Today, however, a broad consensus has been reached which states that the derivation of the name Kettering (and its predecessors) is from ‘the place (or territory) of Ketter’s people (or kinsfolk)’.

    The Modern History Of Kettering

    It was in the 19th century that the present day town of Kettering really began to grow up in earnest, thanks to the success of the shoemaking industry, for which Northamptonshire as a whole became famous.

    This led to a spell of notable growth for Kettering, with both population and levels of economic activity increasing notably well into the 20th century. The shoe and boot industry in Kettering sustained until around the 1970’s when it quickly fell into near terminal decline, leading the town to search for alternative niches and employment sectors.

    Today’s Kettering

    In the present day, Kettering has seen a decrease in the amount of actual employment within the town and has increasingly become something of a commuter settlement. The town is thought in fact, to now be home to a significant commuter population which takes advantage of fast InterCity trains directly into London St Pancras International taking around 1 hour.

    These commuters and others besides, account for Kettering’s permanent resident population of around 68,000 which shows the town to be a notable and active urban centre. This is advantageous in many ways but does also mean that the town can see a significant number of accidents and injuries, and it is this which leads us to the issue of Kettering accident claim proceedings.

    A Kettering Accident Claim

    It is possible to pursue a Kettering accident claim if and when you have suffered an injury in the Northamptonshire town which was demonstrably someone else’s fault. This is so that you, as an injury victim, can gain a measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships caused by your injury.
