If you have suffered a clay pigeon shooting accident that was caused by someone else, you may find your recovery can be improved by receiving clay pigeon shooting accident counselling. Indeed, your doctor may have recommended counselling to you. Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a claim for financial compensation for your personal injury, which can be used to assist in reducing the personal cost of your counselling sessions.
The risks of clay pigeon shooting
Clay pigeon shooting can be great fun. It is a traditional sport, with roots in centuries old countryside pastimes, which is currently enjoyed by people from many different walks of life. Clay pigeon shooters can be young or old, from the countryside, or the city, and work in a range of different professions. The sport is highly competitive, but also has a lighter, fun side.
As with all competitive sports, clay pigeon shooting often means you share the field with many different people. Although this can be great fun, and socially stimulating, it can also mean you are at risk. After all, clay pigeon shooters carry lethal firearms.
The risks of clay pigeon shooting accidents are usually minimised thanks to a range of health and safety regulations and various rules put in place by the clay pigeon shooting event organisers. In fact, the sport is one of the safest you could practise, in terms of the rules and regulations covering it.
Despite the best intentions, accidents can unfortunately happen at any time. Perhaps another shooter handled his or her gun unsafely, accidentally discharging it and injuring you. Whatever the exact nature of your accident, if it was caused by someone else, forced you to seek medical attention, and happened in the last three years, you could be eligible for financial compensation. Such compensation can in turn assist in reducing the personal cost of counselling.
While treating your clay pigeon accident injuries, your doctor may have recommended counselling to you to assist in the long-term healing process. Of course, counselling is often offered to you through the NHS. Often, however, counselling through the NHS can mean waiting lists, or that the care is only available a long distance from your home.
Under these circumstances, private counselling may be the answer. One of the benefits of going private is that you have much more choice about the time and location of your care. Even if you normally could not afford to pay for private health care, raising a financial claim for compensation through Accident Advice Helpline could assist you in this regard.
