    Athlete accident counselling

    If you need athlete accident counselling then it is very important for you to make sure that you have it, no matter what the cost. Your doctor may be able to get you a referral to a NHS counsellor, but are they going to be able to help you when you need it most or will you have to wait weeks for an appointment? Waiting for an appointment is not an uncommon situation to be in these days but it does have a knock-on effect to people like you. Why should you wait for an appointment, especially if the problem was caused by another person’s negligence?

    What can I do?

    It may be difficult to hear this, but one solution is for you to pay for counselling. This would mean that you get the treatment when you need it rather than waiting and it also means that you will not be dragging out your recovery. However, you might think it is very unfair that you should have to pay for counselling when the only reason you need it is because of an accident that was due to the fault of someone else.

    We agree with you – this situation is unfair. We are a specialist law firm that has been helping people with personal injury cases since 2000 and we know that if you need to have counselling it is better for you to have it sooner rather than later. We also know that you may be able to claim back the cost of athlete accident counselling if you make a personal injury claim.

    How can I claim it back?

    The first thing to do is to get the professional advice of Accident Advice Helpline. We will take all the details of your accident and will let you know if you do have grounds to make a claim. You need to make sure that we know about additional expenses such as the cost of counselling, prescriptions or travel so that we can ask for all of this to be taken into consideration when financial compensation is calculated. If you have contact details of witnesses and photos of the accident to back up your case this can make it even easier for your claim to be processed.

    Do I really need to have counselling?

    Sometimes healing your physical injuries is not enough. It could be that the actual accident was a traumatic experience and that you have emotional injuries that are making it difficult for you to get your life back to normal. This is an unacceptable situation and while the thought of having athlete accident counselling may be daunting, it is a process that you should definitely go through if your doctor feels that you need it.
