If during your work as an electroplater you have been injured in an accident and been prescribed counselling during you treatment, you may be able to make a claim for the electroplating operator accident counselling expenses. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we can assist you in factoring the costs of counselling – which are often heavy – into your compensation claim.
Why is counselling so expensive?
While counselling is available on the National Health Service, the kind of specialist counselling you need may not be available or the waiting lists may be very long. That is why many people in your position choose to go private, although that can be very costly.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will try to help you to recover those private costs.
To be able to make a claim for the cost of electroplating operator accident counselling, it must be shown that you were prescribed this course of treatment by your doctor or other medical professional. This recommendation should also appear in your medical notes.
You might have been prescribed counselling because of the traumatic effect your accident had on you mentally and emotionally. Because of the nature and dangers of your work, you could have been left disfigured, blinded, severely burned or disabled. This can have a devastating effect on you psychologically. Whatever the reasons, if the medical experts feel you need counselling as part of your treatment programme, you may well be able to make a claim for electroplating operator accident counselling.
What can I claim for?
When you go for private counselling, you have to pay for the sessions and those costs can be claimed back. If you have been prescribed medication, the cost of that as well as travel to and from counselling sessions can feature in a compensation claim. We advise that you keep receipts for all these expenses as proof that you have spent the money for your counselling.
Even if you have already started counselling, it can be included in your claim, which can be further adjusted if the treatment continues.
In order to pursue your costs for counselling, further proof that you need this form of treatment may be needed and we can organise this for you. This might mean answering some additional questions and will not put you under further stress.
You should understand that if your claim is successful and you are awarded compensation, the courts would base the figure on average costs for similar treatment throughout the country. This may mean you may mean you do not receive all the counselling costs claimed.
