There is a lot to do in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area. From historical sites to breweries and wineries to nature and boating activities, there are a number of exciting activities that await anyone willing to hop in the car and go for a quick drive. In many cases, tour companies are eager to take visitors on guided tours of these areas.
While no one wants to think about getting injured while on a guided tour, the reality is that it does happen on occasion. When someone is injured on a guided tour, the tour guide, the tour company, and potentially several other parties may be legally responsible for the injuries to the guest, depending on the surrounding circumstances.
Of course, the mere fact that someone is injured while on a tour will not necessarily give rise to liability. However, if the surrounding circumstances suggest that the guide was somehow negligent, liability may be appropriate. Additionally, if a guide is aware of a danger but fails to warn tour-goers, there may also be a case for legal liability.
