    Amateur drama accident counselling


    Having to seek amateur drama accident counselling as a result of an injury sustained whilst participating in the pastime you love most is not the outcome you wanted or expected – whether you’re an actor, stagehand, director or have another role in the production. Suffering an injury is the last thing you might expect to occur whilst participating in a drama company’s latest production. All the hard work and effort learning parts, making sets, ensuring the lighting is perfect or that the cast is well fed and watered can be undone in just moments when an accident occurs. However, accidents can leave a person with both physical and emotional scars, and psychological scars are usually the ones that take the longest time to heal. Accident Advice Helpline understands the complications that psychological injury can have on the daily lives of those who have suffered an accident as a result of third party mistakes or neglect.

    It often follows that after suffering an injury during an accident, a medical practitioner will suggest that counselling should be undertaken to explore the psychological trauma suffered – so the person can start to refocus and rebuild their life. In most cases, the person will be referred to their local NHS counselling service for treatment. This can be problematic because such services tend to have very long waiting lists and, as research will demonstrate, this can drastically reduce the success of your treatment – as counselling needs to start as quickly as possible after the accident.

    In order to access counselling services in the shortest time possible, it might be necessary to seek the services of a private practice. The issue here is clearly one of cost, as counselling is not a cheap treatment option and, unlike the NHS provision, it will need to be paid for. Accident Advice Helpline could be in a strong position to help you in such circumstances. When we take on your personal injury compensation claim, the cost of your counselling services will be reimbursed.

    Having its own in-house solicitors who are very experienced in the personal injury compensation claims field, Accident Advice Helpline is perfectly positioned to guide you through the process of ensuring that your treatment is not delayed due to costs. All of the work carried out is done so on a strict no-win, no-fee basis, with no upfront costs.

    Calling our free 24-hour helpline does not cost you a penny. Simply phone 0800 689 0500 from your land line, or from a mobile call 0333 500 0993. To contact one of our skilled representatives by SMS, you can simply text ‘Claim365’ to 88010. Once you have done this, you will receive a call and the background to your claim will be discussed. Having access to counselling when you need it most has been shown to be vital to your long-term recovery, so don’t delay that call – Accident Advice Helpline is here to assist.
