Can my family members get counselling as part of the claim?

There are times when an injury or accident can have far-reaching consequences on your life and it often becomes apparent that it not only impacts on you directly, but also on your family or other dependants. Therefore, if you are making a claim for personal injury you might consider asking the question, “Can my family members get counselling as part of the claim?” It is quite possible that the injuries you have suffered might result in you suffering a loss of earnings for a substantial period of time or, as a result of your injuries, force you to take alternative employment, which is lower paid. In such a situation, your family members might well need some form of counselling.

According to UK law, if you have suffered an injury, due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to a level of compensation that will be commensurate with your loss of earnings during the period you are unable to work. In addition, if you were unfortunate enough to suffer a fatal injury your dependents are likely to be entitled to claim a substantial amount in compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have helped the family members of numerous clients to receive professional counselling as a part of the claims that the individuals have been awarded. What’s more, our services are not only restricted to counselling, we also offer an exhaustive range of legal advice and guidance related to personal injury.

Over the years, as a result of our vast experience of dealing with personal injury cases in the United Kingdom, it has often become apparent that it is frequently the family’s chief breadwinner that has been injured. The result being that he or she might not be able to go work for an extended period of time. In such situations there will invariably be a reduction or complete loss of earnings for at least part of their period of incapacity. It is therefore essential that family members are covered by some form of compensation that will also take into account this loss of income. It is during such times of stress that people need expert counselling from professionals who specialise in dealing with the knock-on effects of personal injuries. We are proud that Accident Advice Helpline is a company that has some of the best legal minds in its team; professionals who can call on an equally skilled team of counsellors.

There are not too many companies around that are in a position to provide such expert advice to you and your family members and which does not charge for legal advice or counselling. What’s more, if you take the decision to be represented by one of our lawyers, it will be on a no win, no fee* basis, which means you will not have to pay a penny, even if your claim is unsuccessful. We also provide a precise and concise online claim form, which you can complete and upload from the comfort of your own home.
