Cheerleading accident counselling can be an important factor in your recovery when suffering an injury that affects you psychologically as well as physically.
Cheerleading has the highest rate of catastrophic injury levels of all sports. Injuries to the neck, back and head can be extremely debilitating and often lead to concussions, loss of movement or paralysis and loss of independence. It can be difficult to adjust to life post-accident and it is understandable that many victims struggle getting back to normal.
Your doctor may prescribe you counselling if they feel it will aid your recovery, but often, NHS counselling has an extremely long waiting time and doesn’t extend to specialist support. If you are in this situation, you may decide you want to seek out private counselling. Accident Advice Helpline may be able to get funding for your counselling as part of your compensation settlement. Give us a call to find out more.
How counselling helps after an accident
Cheerleading accident counselling is delivered by people who have an understanding of the way traumatic accidents impact on people’s lives. One of the main advantages in having private counselling is that you can start your recovery as soon as possible, as psychological injuries can get worse if not addressed and treated.
The counselling you receive will be specific to how your injury has affected you. There are a wide range of techniques available to help you deal with and resolve any issues you may have. Some people only need a handful of sessions, whereas others prefer on-going treatment. Finding someone who understands what you are going through can take a lot of the pressure off you. Whatever support you need and however your accident has affected you, you can count on us to try our best to secure financial support for your private counselling.
Your compensation claim
Compensation law is there to help you get back to living a normal life. This includes your return to a healthy mental well-being as well as your physical and financial health. If your doctor has agreed that counselling would be beneficial to your recovery and your case is brought to the attention of Accident Advice Helpline within three years, there is a good chance that you might be able to get a compensation pay-out which includes funding for counselling. We have over 14 years of experience in dealing with accident victims like yourself and we will handle your case sensitively and professionally.
Our expert medical negligence solicitors know the legal processes relating to cheerleading accident counselling inside out and understand its importance in helping people recover from their accident. We work on a no win, no fee basis so you can relax knowing that having to find the money to fund your counselling is being taken care of by someone else.
If, when you enquire about a claim with Accident Advice Helpline, you have already begun counselling and chose to go private, you might be able to claim back what it has cost you so far as part of your compensation claim. Try and keep hold of receipts and medical notes. These are important as they document how much you have paid, or how much you will pay for the length of your treatment.
