If you are a teacher of dance and have suffered serious injuries, you may well require dance teacher accident counselling. Medical treatment can heal those physical injuries, or at least make life more comfortable, but dealing with the emotional impact can be much more daunting.
Being a dance teacher means you will have led a very active life, socialising with students and working in an environment you love. Serious injury could have put all that on hold or ended it completely and this can lead to severe mental and emotional trauma. Therefore you may have been prescribed counselling.
The problem with being recommended for dance teacher accident counselling is that National Health Service waiting lists in your area may be very long. The only alternative may be private counselling and that is very expensive. If you feel you have no option but use private counselling, the financial impact could be overwhelming. The only way round this is to include the cost of counselling in a claim for compensation.
Including the cost of counselling in your claim
To include the cost of dance teacher accident counselling in your claim, you must have been prescribed counselling by a doctor. This must be documented in your doctor’s notes and must be shown as being essential to your recovery. Even if you have already started private counselling, you may still be able to claim the expenses for this. It is important to keep receipts so that our Accident Advice Helpline lawyers can assist you in receiving as much of the cost back as possible.
What you do get back in compensation for private counselling will depend on what the court sees as the average cost for that type of treatment. Even if your claim is successful, you may not receive everything you paid for your treatment
Other elements that can be used in a dance teacher counselling claim include the cost of travel to and from sessions and expenses for any medication, so it is important that receipts for these expenditures be kept as well.
In order to make an accident counselling claim you may have to undergo an independent assessment. We can organise that and you should not feel any added concern as it will not put you under any increased stress. The assessment will involve a series of questions about how you were affected by your accident.
Accidents are a stressful time for anyone and sometimes the effects linger on even after the physical wounds have been healed. If you have had to undergo dance teacher accident counselling, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline in a bid to seek recovery of the costs.
