    Specialist solicitors in Didsbury

    Didsbury is a suburban area of the City of Manchester. It derives its name from the Anglo-Saxon Dyddi’s burg, probably referring to a man known as Dyddi whose stronghold or township was on a low cliff overlooking a place where the river Mersey could be forded. In the 13th century, Didsbury was variously referred to as Dydesbyre, Dydesbiri, Didsbury or Dodesbury.

    Didsbury no doubt has children living there of school age. If any of them are injured in school through no fault of their own, their parents should speak with specialist solicitors in Didsbury about making a personal injury claim on their behalf.

    The accidents that could happen to your child while they are at school

    Schools take great care where matters of health and safety are concerned, but even then sometimes things go wrong and children get injured. A few examples of what could happen are:

    • They could fall on patio areas that have not been properly maintained;
    • They could fall down stairs that have a broken handrail;
    • Damaged furniture could harm them;
    • In older buildings, they could be exposed to asbestos;
    • They could have been asked to carry heavy objects without instruction;
    • They could have been injured playing sport;
    • They could have contracted food poisoning; or

    If any of these things happen to them and it was not their fault, there is cause for a personal injury claim using specialist solicitors in Didsbury.

    What does your child need to do when an accident happens?

    They should report the accident to a teacher or someone else in authority. The school needs to remove whatever the hazard is to avoid it happening to another child, and they need to record it in an accident book. If anyone witnessed the incident, it is a good idea to get their details, as their statements may strengthen the case.

    In most cases, the school is responsible for the health and safety of your child, and they will be insured for such eventualities.
