As a tour guide your job can be very exciting, but in the unfortunate event that you have suffered an injury at work, you may be eligible to pursue a tour guide accident claim.
Tour guides get to work in exciting places and provide tourists with an educational experience that they will never forget. Most tours will be relatively harmless but when there is an element of danger there are certain safeguards that will need to be in place to ensure that accidents do not occur. If an accident does occur, and it is not your fault, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline for advice on whether or not you are eligible to make a tour guide accident claim.
Accident Advice Helpline was founded in 2000, and has since helped thousands of people each year to make compensation claims for accidents that were not their fault. If your tour guide accident happened in the last three years, then you should give us a call on 0800 689 0500 to see how we can help you.
Your legal rights
Your life as a tour guide should not mean you are exposed to unnecessary risks. Although it can be exciting to work in an environment that you feel passionate about and meet new people everyday, this does not mean that you have to accept anything less than safe working conditions.
Sometimes, the people you are showing around a particular site or cultural hotspot may act recklessly around you and others. Your tour guide employer may fail to adhere to all health and safety regulations or fail to ensure that your tour path is properly signposted with warning signs if there is any danger. At times, you may have a responsibility to ensure that the people you guide are kept safe and your employer should ensure that you are given the right tools to do this. If they have neglected their duties as an employer and this negligence led to your accident then you could be entitled to file a tour guide accident claim against them.
Keep a record of what you know
One of the best ways in which you can improve your ability to claim for financial compensation is to keep a record of everything you remember about your accident. Photographs, witness statements, medical records and noting the name(s) of the person or people who caused your accident can significantly support your claim. When you contact Accident Advice Helpline, one of our friendly advisors will go through the details of your accident as a tour guide with you. He or she will then assess the likelihood of your claim being successful. If we think you have a potentially successful claim, we will pass your details on to one of our expert personal injury solicitors. Your solicitor will then advise you about the best course of action open to you.
