An alternative is to set some additional padding instead:
\property Voice.TextScript \override #'padding = #3.0
If you just have a single collision in the whole score, 
David's solution is probably easier but if you have to 
adjust the spacing for a whole section of the score, 
I'd definitely prefer to set the padding instead.

Thanks for reminding us about the specifics of Guitar
music typeseting but don't forget that there are 
different typesetting habits for different instruments. 
In violin parts, for example, I don't think I've ever
seen fingerings in the middle of a stave.
