    As the winter begins and the temperature drops, many of us start to look forward to Christmas. As well as the usual scramble for presents, we look for family or couples’ activities we can do together to celebrate the winter and the magic it holds.

    There are few things more festive and appropriate for this time of year than ice skating and few of us can resist the lure.

    As magical and fun as ice skating is, there is the danger of an accident whilst taking part and if you receive injuries during ice skating that weren’t your fault, you have the right to make a claim for compensation via Manchester accident claim solicitors

    Dancing on ice

    When we watch ice skating on the television or at a sporting event, it always has the appeal of looking very graceful and often even ethereal.

    The reality is that those dancers and skaters have years’ worth of experience together with hours of training whilst we have a few laps once a year and as a result the result is less gliding god-goddess and more Bambi on ice for the first time.

    Take a slippery surface, a boot with a large blade on it and a person with very little experience and the whole thing is a recipe for disaster. In most cases, any accident which befalls a person whilst they’re ice skating is merely an accident which resulted from a risk they chose to take the moment they slipped their skates on.

    Duty of care

    However, there are other cases where the managerial company in charge of the ice rink or their staff may be to blame for the accident. Whenever a person or company opens a public premises, they and any staff they employ have a set of legal obligations to public safety. This is known as a duty of care and ensures that they take any and all steps to ensure the safety of the public at all times. If a company is found to have failed in this duty of care, Manchester accident claim solicitors can seek a claim for compensation on behalf of the injured party.

    Should an accident happen, it may be found that the fault was with the skater, but a 30-second test from Manchester accident claim solicitors can quickly establish whether it was actually the company who owned and operated the ice rink who had liability for the accident and can help to make a claim for your injuries accordingly.

    Claiming with Manchester accident claim solicitors

    In the case, for example, that there was a nick in an ice skate which caused a very serious fall, the fault may lie with the company who owns the skates rather than the skater, and Accident Advice Helpline can launch a claim. Manchester accident claim solicitors with Accident Advice Helpline have extensive experience in personal injury claims and can help to ensure that no suffering is in vain.
