If you are currently dealing with the psychological after effects of a health and safety officer accident that was not your fault, it could be useful to think about health and safety officer accident counselling.
What is a health and safety officer accident?
The job of a health and safety officer is to implement suitable safety rules and guidelines within workplaces and to make sure that they fulfil national safety requirements. This can often mean that the safety of the officers themselves is overlooked, and we do not believe that this is acceptable. If your job is dealing with hazards, you are bound to be exposed to them also. If injuries do occur, quality health and safety officer accident counselling is recommended.
What is the next step?
If you believe that you are the victim of negligence on the part of a third party individual or organisation, and you would like to receive health and safety officer accident counselling, arrange an appointment with your GP. It is the GP’s job to decide whether or not you should be referred to a specialist.
If your GP does choose to refer you to a specialist, you will be asked whether or not you wish to pay for the treatment yourself or seek free health and safety officer accident counselling from an NHS professional. In most circumstances, patients are automatically assumed to want to be referred to an NHS establishment; however, private treatment can be a better choice for some.
How much will health and safety officer accident counselling cost?
Whilst counselling under the NHS is free, you will be charged for sessions with a private clinic. As these institutions are responsible for establishing their own rates, it is difficult to put a fixed figure on the overall fee. However, Accident Advice Helpline can be there to support your recovery, on a financial basis as well as a physical one.
We cannot pay for your treatment, but we can fight to get the fees, or a portion of the fees, returned to you through a personal injury claim. To find out how much counselling compensation for which you could be eligible, you only need to call our friendly advisors direct today. Our expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis, so you will not be expected to pay any upfront charges.
Am I eligible to make a claim?
To be eligible for compensation, the health and safety officer injuries must have occurred within the last three years. They must also have been the result of negligence on the part of the individual or authority responsible for your physical safety. Just because you help to keep people safe, does not mean that your own safety should be disregarded.
If you have received or are due to receive private health and safety officer accident counselling, and would like help recovering a portion of the costs, call us direct today at 0800 689 0500. We operate a free, 24-hour helpline, and our expert advisors are here to make sure that you are always in the loop when it comes to compensation.
