In the 1960’s and 1970’s, Merseyside became a world famous city, because of all the music groups it produced. Such groups as The Beatles and Gerry and The Pacemakers came from Merseyside, immortalising it with songs like Ferry across the Mersey.
Today Merseyside is still a very popular tourist attraction, with visitors going to places such as the Cavern Club in Liverpool, to the Beatles Museum and there are many who take the trip across the Mersey on a ferry.
As with any part of the UK where there are lots of tourists, there are lots of businesses being run, to keep them happy. There are hotel, bars, restaurants, cinemas, theme parks and a huge number of other attractions. These all need workers to staff them and sometimes one of these employees gets injured in an accident at work and may be entitled to make a Merseyside accident at work claim.
Tourism accidents and a Merseyside accident at work claim
If you work in a hotel for instance, there can be many hazards for employees. Sometimes they will be injured by faulty electrical equipment, they could fall down stairs that are not properly lit up, they could slip on a wet floor that had no warning signs or be injured in any one of hundreds of different ways accidents happen at work.
Because of the hustle and bustle of the tourist industry, employees are usually in a hurry to get things done, and to take care of the customers. The business owners want the workers to be this way, but they must make sure they are safe as they work. This is a legal duty all UK employers have, and if they breach health and safety laws in some way, the innocent victim will be entitled to make a Merseyside accident at work claim.
There are many nasty injuries that can be sustained in the tourist industry, victims get burned in kitchens, run over in car parks, have falls from heights and have a multitude of other accidents, all through no fault of their own.
