Some people struggle physically and emotionally with the injuries received in a workplace accident and need factory worker counselling as a result. For some, it could be months after they start their personal injury claim that factory worker counselling is needed in order to help them come to terms with the realities of serious injury.
Many men and women who work in a factory environment have to support a family at home, and losing the ability to work for a period of time, or even forever, can have long lasting psychological implications for them.
If you have suffered an accident in a factory that leaves you unable to work for a period of time it is something that needs to be addressed by our specialist solicitors, and a loss of earnings claim can be applied for. Factory worker counselling must also be factored in when a serious injury has been inflicted. The company or whoever is to blame for the accident will be prosecuted for negligence and the cost of receiving specialist counselling can be included in your claim for compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline our expert law team realise that the repercussions of an accident at work can stretch far beyond the physical injuries that are a result of the accident. Long periods of time off work will have an adverse effect on your earning ability and it may be that you have to incur additional expense in order for someone to help out with childcare while you recover from your injury.
It may also be that your spouse has to take time off work in order to care for you. These are just some of the factors that add psychological pressure to anyone who has already been through a frightening ordeal.
Mental health issues
Some people are very deeply mentally scarred by their accident and this can result in a mental illness, such as depression, developing. It may be that you are so badly injured that you will never work again, in which case the full range of potential treatments must be included in any claim for compensation.
It can knock your confidence to such a degree that you may feel unable to deal with the day-to-day requirements of life, which is precisely why factory worker counselling must be considered if you have suffered an accident in a factory.
For further details relating to any part of the claim process Accident Advice Helpline has a free 24-hour helpline in order to provide information and advice if you have any questions about your claim. Our helpful and considerate staff are on hand to offer free legal advice and they will be happy to clarify the details surrounding the personal injury claim process.
