Bank accident counselling can be required if you have suffered an accident such as a slip, trip, or fall in a bank and have had exceptional physical, emotional, or psychological stress as a result of that accident. It could be that you have exacerbated an older injury, and consequently extensive physiotherapy may be needed in order to get you back to work. Other personal injury claim cases include those of people who have had to take long periods away from work in order to recuperate. In these instances, a loss of earnings can be incurred, which can lead to depression and anxiety as the injured person struggles with their unfortunate predicament.
A bank is a public place and the risk of accidental injury applies to the staff at the bank as well as the public. Correct measures must be taken when carrying out certain tasks, for example if you as a bank employee have been forced to lift heavy boxes then the risk of incurring a back injury is heightened. Take care when lifting, and if the load looks too much for one person to move then it is advisable to seek help from another employee or your employer. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations from 1992 (amended in 2000) states that your employer should avoid the risk of their employees undertaking a lifting activity that can possibly cause injury, and that an employer should also assess the risk levels of hazardous manual lifting.
If you or a person you know feels that incorrect health and safety measures have contributed to an accident in the workplace, contacting Accident Advice Helpline will help the person to move forward with the claims process. Our 24/7 free telephone helpline can help you to get any answers that you need regarding their individual case. Expert lawyers are on hand to represent anyone who feels they may need bank accident counselling as part of their personal injury claim in order to move on from their ordeal.
Bank accident counselling is sometimes needed so that you can properly recuperate from what may have been a possibly traumatic incident. Many people do try to receive counselling services from the NHS, but in the vast majority of cases the waiting list is rather long. The former situation of having to wait for counselling may not be good enough for more serious cases, and you may be prompted to seek private counselling, which can be a costly process. Although we at Accident Advice Helpline cannot help to pay up front for counselling costs, there is the possibility of recovering counselling costs as part of the final compensation package.
When you have an accident, the immediate concern is to get the correct professional help for your injuries, but in many cases ongoing psychological support is also needed and therapy may need to be paid for. It is the job of our expert lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline to ensure that as much of the cost of treatment as possible is recovered from a personal injury claim. Our no win, no fee policy means that by contacting us, and pursuing a claim with us, you will not have to pay any upfront costs.
