    Brit Milah Accident Counselling


    Brit Milah Accident Counselling

    If you are currently dealing with the psychological after effects of a Brit Milah accident, which was not your fault, it could be useful to think about Brit Milah accident counselling.

    What is a Brit Milah accident?

    The Brit Milah is a medical procedure that involves the circumcision of new born infants – usually eight days after their birth. However, it is now fairly common for older boys and even adults to choose to have the surgery at a much later date. It is a very simple procedure, and one which should not require more than a couple of weeks of healing.

    Whilst swelling and a proportionate amount of discomfort and bruising is natural, extreme pain and discolouration may mean that something is wrong. If a Brit Milah is performed poorly, injuries to the body can be very serious. Whilst this may be a routine operation, it is still a surgical procedure, and as such, comes with many risks, if it is not carried out safely and professionally.

    What is the next step?

    If you believe that you are the victim of negligence, on the part of a third party individual or organisation, and you would like to receive Brit Milah accident counselling for your injuries, arrange an appointment with your general practitioner. It is their job to decide whether or not you should be referred to a specialist.

    If your GP chooses to make a referral, you will be asked whether not you wish to pay for the treatment yourself, or seek free support from a National Health Service counsellor. In most circumstances, patients are automatically assumed to want to be referred to an NHS professional; however, private treatment can be a better choice for some.

    How much will private counselling cost?

    Whilst counselling under the NHS is free, you will be charged for sessions with a private clinic. As these institutions are responsible for establishing their own rates, it is difficult to put a fixed figure on the overall fee. However, Accident Advice Helpline can be there to support your recovery, on a financial basis, as well as a physical one.

    We cannot pay for your treatment, but we can fight to get the fees, or a portion of the fees, returned to you, through a personal injury claim. In order to find out how much counselling compensation you could be eligible for, you need only to call our friendly advisors direct today. Our expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis, so you will not be expected to pay any upfront charges.

    Am I eligible to make a claim?

    In order to be eligible for compensation, the Brit Milah injuries must have occurred within the last three years. They must also have been the result of negligence on the part of the individual, or authority, responsible for the safety of your medical procedure – remember, this should be a routine operation.

    If you have received, or are due to receive, private counselling, and would like help recovering a portion of the costs, call us direct today on 0800 689 0500. We operate a free, 24-hour helpline, and our expert advisors are here to make sure that you are always in the loop when it comes to compensation.
