    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can I get counselling for an accident as an aeroplane pilot?


    While this may not be the most common of queries we receive each year, if you’ve had a pilot related accident, you may well be able to make a claim for counselling and other financial compensation.

    Professional, regular counselling can be costly, but you may not have much of a choice if you’ve been involved in a major trauma. Your future health and wellbeing may be severely hampered if you do not receive professional counselling. Give yourself peace of mind on the financial front by checking with Accident Advice Helpline whether you can claim compensation that will at least minimise your bills. You will have suffered enough without adding financial hardship to your worries.

    What can I do to claim compensation?

    If the incident was not your fault and you required medical attention because of it, you may be able to claim compensation. Faulty engineering, technical oversights, hazardous behaviour by airport or other flight staff or perhaps members of the public or other aircraft may have caused your aeroplane pilot accident. Whatever the cause, if your accident was fundamentally not your fault, you may be legally entitled to claim compensation, some of which may be awarded to pay for counselling. Unlike other personal injury claims, you will usually only have two years to make a claim for an aeroplane accident. For more information call us free, 24 hours a day, on 0800 180 4123.

    I wasn’t the only one to get hurt – can I still claim?

    Don’t feel guilty about pursuing a claim for compensation. Many others may have been hurt in the accident you were involved in. It may have been a deeply traumatic experience for many people and some may even blame you, as the pilot, for the incident. As long as you are able to show that you were not at fault, you could start a legal process through Accident Advice Helpline to claim the compensation you are rightfully entitled to. You may not change some people’s minds about the accident, but your first priority is to look after your own psychological health and let the facts speak for themselves.

    How much could I claim?

    How much you could claim in compensation for your aeroplane accident depends on the precise details of your particular case. The law takes into account your individual circumstances and will look at your potential loss of earnings, the extent of your injuries and the medical fees incurred; all of which will affect the level of counselling you require and consequently, the cost of the course of treatment required.

He or she will be then able to say if you have a potential claim.
