If you work in forestry and have been involved in an accident, you may well need forester accident counselling. Because of the environment you work in that may require the use of tools such as chain saws, any injuries sustained can be very serious. In the aftermath this can lead to problems adjusting both physically and mentally. Even if the physical injuries were not too serious the emotional trauma can still have a detrimental effect on you. In these circumstances you may be prescribed counselling.
The problem when being prescribed counselling is that the National Health Services waiting lists can be very long. Private counselling is often the only alternative though this can be very expensive. This can add to the problems faced by you and your family following the accident. You may not be able to work again or you may have to take time off work to recover. Besides the loss in wages, there may be prescription charges to pay for, as well as costs for traveling to and from treatment sessions.
You may be able to make a claim for these additional costs as well the wages lost. If you have been prescribed counselling, the cost of private sessions as well as that of any medication related to the counselling may also be able be claimed.
In order to reclaim these costs, including the cost of forester accident counselling, you should seek expert legal advice from Accident Advice Helpline.
What you need to claim for accident counselling.
To have your forester accident counselling featured in a claim, you will need to have been prescribed counselling by your general practitioner or another medical professional. A doctor’s report is always essential for any accident claim, but the addition of a recommendation for counselling will enable that element to be included in the claim as well.
If you are found to need this kind of counselling you may well have to undergo an assessment to determine how long it will last, but this will be done in a way which causes you no extra stress. On the plus side, it may enable you to claim the full cost of counselling sessions as well as costs for travel to and from appointments if your claim is successful.
