Accident Advice Helpline provide expert mountain guide injury advice to people that have been involved in serious accidents across the UK. If you were climbing, mountaineering or skiing and were injured by another person then you could make a no win, no fee* claim for compensation. Do not just sit back and pay for all the expenses associated with your injuries if a third party was negligent. We can help you to recover those costs by claiming against them.
Mountain guides are experts in mountaineering and usually belong to the British Mountain Guides association (BMG). BMG train and assess guides in a range of activities such as climbing and promote stringent health and safety measures to minimise the risks involved. If you are a mountain guide then you are likely to have extensive experience and a varied skill set for all types of mountaineering. Unfortunately, this does not always prevent serious accidents from taking place. If another person or third party contributed to your injuries by being negligent in some way then you have a right to make a claim.
Common injuries can range from punctured lungs, broken bones, concussion and even fatalities depending on the severity of the mountain guide accident. Procedures must be put in place to prevent serious accidents such as ensuring appropriate equipment is used, weather warnings are followed and fellow mountaineers know the basics about safety in the outdoors. Even if you are a mountain guide and it is your responsibly to look after others, there must also be someone looking out for your safety, either an employer or other organisation.
If they failed to train you properly or if a fellow climber was negligent then someone else was at fault. They must share the burden of compensation even if they did not intend to injure you or contribute to your injuries. To support your claim, our expert solicitors will use evidence from the scene in addition to other personal medical and financial documents to fight your claim. For this reason, we suggest that you write down all the details of the accident and collect witness accounts and print photographs you have taken of what was at fault.
There is a three-year deadline for personal injury claims so it is better to act sooner rather than later as only in specific circumstances can you claim after this deadline has passed. You will also only be eligible if you were treated for your injuries at the scene or at a hospital. It is not hard to start a claim and you do not even need to pay a penny upfront.
If you want our injury experts to work for you, then ring our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline. A claim could cover any income you have lost and pay for medical and monthly bills. It will help you and your family to move on. You can also text ‘claim365’ to 88010 to register your interest.
