The village of Wythall in Worcestershire, England, lies close to the borders of Solihull and Birmingham. With more than 11,000 inhabitants, Wythall is a sizeable settlement within a 7 mile distance of Birmingham city centre.
The village was once home to a Royal Airforce Station, which was later turned into the current Transport Museum. Boasting a fine collection of historic buses and early vehicles powered by electricity, Wythall’s Transport Museum ranks highly as a visitor attraction on rainy days – on sunny days the Wythall and Hollywood fun run races probably outshine the attraction of vintage buses and tractors!
The popular races cover distances of 10, 5 and 1.5 kilometres so that as many people can join in the fun, no matter what age, fitness level or ability. If you joined and suffered an injury during your fun run, you’d be unlikely to be awarded compensation.
However, if you can prove your broken ankle or elbow was the result of somebody else’s negligence or a deliberate assault by a competitor, you should contact a compensation injury lawyer Wythall specialist or other specialist to make a claim.
One of the longest running business in the village is the local sawmill, which has been going strong for more than a century and was at one point steam powered. In 1838, when the site was already recorded on a local map, this sawmill would have employed quite a number of people, but with today’s efficient machinery far less local people find work in this sawmill. Cutting timber by hand or with a steam-powered saw was just as dangerous as cutting timber with a modern electrically driven saw.
Accidents were not uncommon and would have been severe. While most of such accidents were probably down to human error and inattention, sometimes accidents at work happen because an employer is negligent. If you suffered an injury at work as a result of employer negligence, contact a compensation injury lawyer in Wythall, or other law firm and make a claim.
