The Northamptonshire Borough of Corby is an increasingly popular area of England – and its fast-growing population brings with it the expected risks of accidents which may cause personal injuries. Personal injury claims in Corby, like other areas of the UK, can vary greatly in type and severity. From a fall in a public place causing a dislocated shoulder to a road traffic accident causing spinal injuries and paralysis, every case should always be treated on an individual basis.
Personal injury claims in Corby – am I eligible?
Personal injury claims in Corby can be made if you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, happened within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention – perhaps from your GP or on-call medical professionals at your local hospital.

Why make a claim for compensation?
Compensation in the UK is in place to ensure you are protected should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident that was not your fault. Whether caused by explicit actions or through negligence, it is important you receive the compensation you deserve.
Compensation amounts take into account the type and severity of your injuries, with the most severe cases (including brain injuries and spinal injuries) likely to be eligible to the greatest amount of compensation. Factors such as the impact on your life are a key consideration when reaching a compensation settlement – for example, if you are unable to work as a result of your injuries, you should be compensated for your loss of earnings both now and into the future. Other considerations may include:
- Care costs – even if care is administered by family and friends
- Specialist treatment such as physiotherapy
- Bills for prescribed medication
- Home adaptations including rails and door widening
- Equipment such as wheelchairs
