As you can see, there are a whole host of different incidents that can lead to a negligence claim in Wyre Forest. Essentially, for you to make a claim you need to be able to prove that you have suffered an injury. You also need to be able to show that you have suffered this injury because someone else has made an error or act negligently. It does not matter whether you were walking or cycling, whether you were at work or at a public place, so long as you can prove someone else caused the accident.
