    Allergy accident counselling

    If you have experienced an extreme allergic reaction that was caused by someone else, you may be in need of allergy accident counselling.

    Your allergy condition

    Living with a severe allergy will be a nuisance that might prevent you living a relatively carefree life. It is likely that you have lived with your allergy for many years; although some allergic conditions do develop later in life, most sufferers are born with them. You are likely to know how to handle your allergic condition avoiding certain things or situations that could trigger a reaction.

    That said, accidents can happen regardless of the amount of planning you do. Suffering from an allergic reaction can be highly unpleasant, even dangerous, and you may need allergy accident counselling if you experience frequent, traumatic attacks.


    Counselling is typically prescribed by your doctor or by the medical staff responsible for treating your allergic reaction (this is required if a claim for counselling costs is to be pursued). If a doctor advises counselling, it is because he or she thinks that it can help you in your recovery and speed up the mental healing process. Psychological counselling is available on the NHS but the demands on the service are great and the resources limited, hence there are long waiting lists. In that case, private counselling is often the only option.

    The costs of private counselling

    NHS-provided counselling is free at the point of use, whereas private professional counselling is not free and can be very expensive. Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you recover any costs you incur obtaining the counselling you need. This will include lost wages through keeping appointments and travel costs. We can potentially help you in having all your fees reimbursed by pursuing a personal injury compensation claim.

    Am I eligible to claim for personal injury compensation?

    To be eligible, your allergy accident must have happened in the last three years and be someone else’s fault. If your allergic reaction meant you had to seek medical assistance, your doctor will have a record of the event. Ask for this information and supplement it with as much as you can personally recall about the accident. Note down dates and times and record your recollection of how the other party involved was culpable.

    Your allergy accident may have related to food or something in your immediate environment. Describe this as carefully as possible, so that your case is as strong as possible.
