If you are currently dealing with the psychological after-effects of a flywheel accident, which was no fault of your own, it could be helpful to start thinking about seeking flywheel accident counselling.
What is a flywheel accident?
A flywheel is a rapidly rotating mechanical component that is primarily used to store rotational energy. These mechanical devices are commonly used within motors and large-scale industrial machinery, and they can be very dangerous without following the proper health and safety guidelines. Flywheels have the potential to reach great speeds, and to cause serious damage to body parts if things go wrong.
If you are obliged to work with, or around, a flywheel, it’s vital that you are provided with the right safety information. It is also imperative that the equipment is always well maintained, and the right safety guards and features are installed, in order to fully protect the physical well-being of workers.
What is flywheel accident counselling?
A flywheel accident can be a very painful thing, resulting in time off work and a loss of earnings. Yet, this is not the only risk – this kind of injury can also cause deep psychological fears and issues, usually associated with returning to work.
Under these circumstances a GP may find it necessary to refer you for flywheel accident counselling with an NHS professional. This kind of counselling is designed to confront the mental issues associated with returning back to the environment which caused your injury.
How much will it cost?
Once you’ve received a referral from your doctor, you are free to either accept free treatment on the NHS, or to seek paid-for counselling at a private clinic. As this is primarily an independent choice, Accident Advice Helpline cannot directly contribute to the costs.
However, we can seek full or partial recovery of these costs on your behalf. This can be a part of your original claim for compensation, at no extra charge. We believe that nobody should have to suffer as a result of third party negligence, whether physically or financially.
There are several reasons why a person might choose private care over free treatment. They may feel like the quality of care offered is much higher. They might just be a long way down on the waiting list for NHS treatment – whatever the reason, let us help you find the recovery that is right for you.
What is the next step?
If you have received, or are due to receive, private flywheel accident counselling, and would like help recovering a portion of the costs, call us direct today on 0800 689 0500.
