    Amateur sports accident counselling

    Having suffered an accident whilst participating in your favourite sporting event can be particularly distressing and can have a negative effect on not only your physical health, but also your mental state. For many people, the focus of their week is participation in sport during the evenings and weekends – and losing this aspect of their lives can have a destabilising impact. To help you recover from a sporting injury, you may benefit from amateur sports accident counselling.

    After consultation with your medical practitioner, the advice might be that the skilled intervention of a counsellor can assist in allowing you to restore some balance to your life and see your situation in a more positive light. Accident Advice Helpline understands the importance of being able to secure the services of a skilled counsellor at the time you need therapy most. Unfortunately, given that the NHS is such an oversubscribed option, it might be that the best way of meeting your needs would be to see a private counsellor. The waiting lists for NHS counsellors are notoriously long. Although the services are free, not being able to receive the treatment you need at the time you need it can result in the distress becoming more deeply rooted – and therefore more difficult to treat.

    Using a private counselling practice will undoubtedly carry a cost, but Accident Advice Helpline believes that this should not be a barrier to you receiving the healthcare you need. Working hard on your behalf, the in-house solicitors will use the circumstances around your injury to ensure that the cost of counselling is reimbursed. By initiating a personal injury compensation claim supported by medical certification that counselling was a prescribed course of treatment, the legal experts at Accident Advice Helpline will use their deep experience and expertise to reclaim your counselling costs and other expenses associated with your therapy. Having established itself as a market-leading law firm in injury claims, the company only take on cases where the outcome is expected to be positive. They operate on a strict no-win, no-fee policy with no upfront fees.

    Contacting Accident Advice Helpline is free, whichever method you use to get in touch. You can call the free 24-hour helpline any time. Simply call 0800 689 0500 from your land line or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. To contact one of our skilled and experienced claims representatives by SMS, simply text ‘Claim365’ to 88010. Once you have done that you will receive a call back and the claims representative will discuss the details of your claim. It is crucial that you have access to amateur sports accident counselling when you need it most, as this will be imperative to your long-term recovery. The solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work to ensure that you receive the treatment you need, and that it has no negative financial impact on your life.
