At Accident Advice Helpline, we are here to ensure that making a helicopter lesson accident claim is a simple process. Learning to fly a helicopter is an exhilarating experience, and once you are fully qualified, you will have the freedom to take to the skies whenever you want. However, if you have an accident during your training, it can have a physical and mental impact on you.
Sometimes, you might be involved in a training accident that was not your fault. This could be due to a number of reasons, including inadequate training, or the fact that the helicopter was not serviced or maintained correctly.
If this is the case, you could be entitled to make a helicopter lesson accident claim. The compensation you might receive is designed to recompense you for the trauma you have suffered, as well as the money that you have lost because of the incident.
Do you require counselling?
It is not just the physical effects that you will have to deal with if you have an accident during a helicopter lesson. There is also the emotional side of the incident to deal with, which can be just as traumatic and have long-term implications. Coping after an accident can damage your confidence, and make you unwilling to get back in a helicopter.
When you are feeling like this, a course of counselling sessions could enable you to find coping strategies for the side effects. If you think that counselling would be helpful for you, then you should speak to your doctor about being referred for treatment.
The money that you receive as part of your compensation following a helicopter lesson accident claim could help to reduce the financial impact of the accident, and speed up your recovery process.
By talking to a counsellor about your concerns, worries, and feelings following the accident, it can enable you to return to a normal life. This can include continuing with your helicopter lessons once you are physically and emotionally ready.
