It’s likely that suffering a farming vehicle injury will effect you psychologically as well as physically – farming vehicle accident counselling can therefore be an important part of your recovery.
Vehicles such as tractors, combine harvesters, 4×4 vehicles and forklift trucks are all used on farms, but unsurprisingly they can lead to accidents. It is possible to become injured by being hit or crushed by one of these vehicles, or through a collision with another vehicle or object. The nature of these accidents means that injuries can vary from mild whiplash to loss of limbs, paralysis or sometimes even death.
It can be very difficult to adjust to life after an accident, especially after suffering a life-changing injury. For this reason, your GP may recommend that you pursue a course of counselling. NHS counselling will often have a long waiting list, so if you decide to seek private counselling instead of passing time waiting to make it to the top of NHS lists, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to get funding for your counselling as a part of your compensation settlement.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
If your GP has prescribed you a course of counselling and your farm vehicle accident occurred within the last three years, the chances are that we can secure a compensation payout for you which will include funding for private counselling. Our expert solicitors are aware of the benefit that counselling has on some victims of accidents and are fully competent in the legal processes behind winning funding for your farming vehicle accident counselling. We work on a no win no fee* basis, so you can relax knowing that having to find the money to fund your counselling is being taken care of by someone else.
Your farming vehicle accident counselling will be delivered to you by a specialist counsellor who will have a strong understanding of how traumatic accidents impact people’s lives. In addition to this specialist support, another massive advantage in choosing to receive private counselling is that you can start your course as soon as possible. With no lengthy waiting list looming over you, you can get started on treating your psychological injuries, which can worsen if left unaddressed.
Your counselling sessions will be specific to your accident and how your sustained injuries have affected you. No two sessions or clients are the same – there are a wide variety of techniques available, designed to best encourage your recovery and to resolve any issues you may have. Many people find great relief in simply being able to talk through their experiences openly with someone who understands what they are going through.
You might only attend one or two sessions, or you might like to consult with your counsellor more regularly. Accident Advice Helpline don’t care if you take three sessions or 300 – we just care that you start to feel better. Rest assured that we will try our best to secure the financial support your private counselling needs.
