    Crossbow accident counselling

    If you are struggling to come to terms with the psychological impact of a crossbow accident you may need crossbow accident counselling. It is important that you get the correct treatment for all your injuries – physical and psychological – if you are to completely recover from your accident.

    Identifying the symptoms

    The symptoms of your physical injuries are usually obvious. There will probably have been pain and bleeding. You may have lost consciousness or have been unable to use a limb. It is easy to know then that you need medical attention.

    Psychological trauma is harder to spot and to know when to seek further help. It is natural to feel shaken after an accident, particularly if you have been shot with a weapon as dangerous as a crossbow.

    If you start to experience panic attacks, flashbacks and nightmares you may be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Other symptoms can include mood swings and isolation. You may find that you do not experience these all the time, but certain reminders of your accident can suddenly trigger them.

    If you are struggling in any way with trauma of your accident you should consider crossbow accident counselling.

    How to get help

    To get crossbow accident counselling you should discuss your symptoms with your GP or the consultant in charge of your case. They can refer you for counselling on the NHS. Unfortunately in many areas there are long waiting lists for counselling services. You may consider private counselling, but this may be an expensive option.

    Paying for private crossbow accident counselling

    While you may need to start counselling immediately, it will seem very unfair that you have to pay for it. If the accident was not your fault and you have a medically recognised need for counselling, you are entitled to make a personal injury claim to recover the costs of private counselling.

    Just as you have consulted the experts about your physical and psychological injuries, so you should consult the experts about making a personal injury claim. Call Accident Advice Helpline today for expert legal advice on making a compensation claim.

    How to start a claim

    To start a claim your details will be passed to one of our expert solicitors, who will work exclusively on a no win, no fee* basis.  All have extensive experience in working with accident victims to claim the compensation they deserve.

    We understand that you may still be feeling physically and psychologically fragile after your accident, so we work hard to make the claims process as straightforward as possible.

    Keep receipts for any crossbow accident counselling sessions you have paid for and any other costs your accident has caused. These will be needed when calculating your compensation package.

    Accident Advice Helpline can be contacted on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. Your first contact will be with one of our helpful advisors who will give you the information you need and will confirm if you are eligible for compensation.
