If you are suffering ongoing stress because you were poisoned, and if a medical or psychiatric professional agrees that it is a serious problem, you may be able to get counselling for alcohol poisoning paid for as part of a compensation settlement. At Accident Advice Helpline we deal with a lot of cases involving poisoning and we know how upsetting they can be. We are happy to help by giving you free advice on your options or by helping you to make a claim for the help you need.
Getting the right counselling can make quite a difference to your recovery after a traumatic incident. If you have suffered as a result of a spiked drink, it can be difficult to trust people again or feel comfortable in social situations. A counsellor who understands these feelings can help you to come to terms with them and relax more.
Counselling is available on the NHS, however, this service does not offer much choice and there is often a waiting list. This kind of therapy tends to be more effective if you get it early, and compensation rulings will often take this into account and cover the cost. If you decide to start private counselling straight away, save the receipts, as you may be able to claim all or part of your money back.
If you are not sure about your particular circumstances, give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline whenever you feel up to it and we will talk through the situation with you. We can help you to work out whether you are likely to get funding for counselling for alcohol poisoning and how much your overall compensation package might be worth. We will not pressure you and you can take your time to make a decision about what you would like to do.
If you decide that you would like to make a compensation claim, and we think that you have a valid case, we will be able to take it on using a no-win, no-fee approach; this means that if we lose the case, you will not have to pay us any money.
We have a network of highly-trained solicitors based all around the UK, meaning that we will have no problem matching you up with someone suitable and you will not have to wait in a queue. We aim to keep things simple for you throughout and will be able to deal with most things over the phone. In some cases we are able to arrive at settlements without our clients having to appear in court.
A successful compensation claim can make day to day life a lot easier and can help to give you some closure after the distress of being poisoned. It is great to know that, without financial worries, you can access counselling for as long as you need it. Winning can help you get back to the life you used to enjoy.
