Can I get counselling as part of my claim?

Accidents and injuries can change your life. If you have been affected by these and need extra help, you may be wondering, ‘Can I get counselling as part of my claim?’ The answer is yes, if you have had financial losses that result from your accident, including the fees of a professional counsellor, you can claim.

Whether the incident happened at work, while you were driving, or was a criminal assault, the aftermath may leave you feeling scared and needing expert support in order to lead a normal life.

If you would rather make an initial enquiry online, try our unique claims calculator. The next step is to give us a call and one of our trained and knowledgeable staff will ask you a few easy questions and allow you time to make a decision on how to proceed. Be assured, there is no hard sell and we never pressure our customers.

Moreover, our helpline staff understand that you may not want to spend a long time on the phone, so in the early stages we will endeavour to make an evaluation of your eligibility within 30 seconds.

Sadly, for some accident survivors or the victims of violent crime, the physical injury they experience is only the beginning of their suffering. The trauma of the event, or the psychological effects of continued pain, are just as debilitating and may necessitate a course of counselling. Talking through the problem with a professional, will help you to make sense of what happened and begin to come to terms with how your life has been affected.

There is a window of three years between when an incident took place and when you must bring a claim. However, in the aftermath of a difficult experience it is understandable that you will not be feeling particularly confident, and have no desire to relive what happened to you. Be assured, our staff are trained to help customers who are moving through a challenging experience.

When calling Accident Advice Helpline, you can expect a sympathetic response and a person who is ready to listen. If you choose to proceed with a claim for compensation, we will pass your case to a dedicated solicitor who works with counselling claims. They will fight for the maximum compensation you deserve, and we will keep you informed on their progress at each stage.

During your rehabilitation, you may incur a wide variety of additional costs. Remember to keep proof of every extra expense you have. Your medical notes will also form an important part of a claim. Your GP may recommend specialist help, but there are usually waiting lists for the NHS and private counselling can be costly.

So, if you are asking yourself, ‘Can I get counselling as part of my claim?’ simply give Accident Advice Helpline a call. If we feel you have a valid claim, and you choose to pursue compensation, we will support you at every stage of this difficult time.
