Babysitter accident counselling might be essential for anyone who has suffered injuries from an accident that occurred when caring for a baby or child. At Accident Advice Helpline we understand how distressing an accident can be, especially when it happens around young children. We know that this distress can affect your life on many levels, which is why if you pursue a personal injury claim with us, we will aim to include babysitter accident counselling into your compensation package.
Working as a babysitter carries huge responsibilities, but while the parents or employers are putting a lot of trust in their babysitter, they have a responsibility to ensure that your working environment is safe. If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you may have grounds to pursue a claim against them.
When most people think of an injury, they think of how the victim is affected physically. The psychological damage that a person can suffer is often overlooked despite the damaging implications to the victim’s long-term health. The accident itself could have led to psychological trauma leading to anxiety and self doubt regarding your abilities as a babysitter. As a result you may have had to take time off work, which meant you were not earning wages when you should have been.
If your injury was severe enough to take you to hospital or visit a doctor, you should have told your doctor about how the accident has affected you mentally. If your doctor feels it is right, they will recommend a course of counselling as part of your treatment plan.
Receiving counselling from the NHS could involve waiting months for an appointment to open up – all the while your psychological injuries could be getting worse. To get around this, you may have to see a private counsellor instead. The downside of this option is that you will have to pay for your treatment, which can be expensive. This is where making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline can you help you.
The compensation package that we will fight for will aim to include any costs that you paid for babysitter accident counselling. Your medical records will therefore be essential to prove that you received the counselling treatment and how much we can try to claim back for you. You can also give us any other costs relating to this treatment, such as prescriptions or travel receipts.
If you have already received private counselling and you are worried about paying more to pursue a claim, please do not worry. Our lawyers work on a no-win, no-fee basis so you will not have to pay any upfront costs when making a claim with us.
It is being recognised more and more in today’s world that emotional and mental injuries are as important as physical injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline we strongly believe it is right and just to pursue claims for compensation for the cost of any necessary counselling. We have the expert lawyers on hand to assess, advise and fight your claim. So do not suffer in silence and do not think that your need for counselling will simply be disregarded by today’s legal system. Contact us today at 0800 89 0500 and see how we can help you.
