    Demolition accident counselling

    During or after a personal injury claim the effect of a serious injury received at work can mean that you may need demolition accident counselling. Demolition is a very hazardous business and you put yourself at risk almost daily. It is therefore almost inevitable that accidents will happen, no matter how careful you are. The psychological damage that can be caused by injuries that may be serious enough to cause partial or even total paralysis can be extremely traumatic. You may find yourself having to endure pain caused, not only by your physical injuries, but also by depression, anxiety or other mental issues and it is essential that you receive all the support possible.

    You may have a family to support and household bills to pay yet it could be weeks or months before you are fit enough to return to work; in some cases you may never be able to work again. It is unlikely that you will continue to receive the same level of income that you received while working, so financial issues may start to arise, which can add to the psychological pressure you already have to deal with. In some cases there will be increased childcare costs, as your spouse has to find work. The costs incurred by travelling to and from treatment centres and hospitals can add to the financial burdens.

If you decide to proceed with making a claim for compensation one of our team of specialist solicitors will be allocated to your case. We aim to achieve the maximum amount of compensation possible on your behalf, including an element to cover the cost of counselling.

    While recovering from your injuries the increasing costs of managing the damage caused can certainly add to the psychological pressure you feel. This may, in turn, lead to bouts of anxiety, periods of melancholy, social isolation or other problems that can be related to a build-up of mental stress. This is precisely why you may need counselling for an extended period following your accident.
