If you are finding it hard to cope after being injured while attending or working at a high school prom you may need high school prom accident counselling. The psychological trauma of an accident can be devastating, particularly if the accident has occurred on what was supposed to be such a happy occasion.
Psychological trauma does not always go away without treatment, and getting the correct treatment is essential for you to fully recover from your accident.
When to get help
It is always important to get the correct medical attention after an accident. Usually the initial focus will be on getting your physical injuries treated. Feeling shocked at this stage is normal, but these feelings should ease over the course of a few weeks.
If you start experiencing symptoms such as flashbacks or panic attacks, or are having problems with sleeping such as nightmares or insomnia, you may need high school prom accident counselling to help you recover. Other signs can include mood swings, bouts of anger, a feeling of isolation or simply not feeling yourself any more.
Where to get help
If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms you should consult your GP. They may refer you for high school prom accident counselling. Accident counselling is available on the NHS, although there can be long waiting lists for an appointment.
Waiting for treatment is not ideal, but you can avoid the wait by seeing a private counsellor, although this can be costly.
Paying for high school prom accident counselling
If your prom accident was caused by the negligence of a third party it will seem very unfair that you have been left to pay for the treatment. Fortunately, you may be able to file a claim to help cover some or all of the costs associated with your treatment by making a personal injury claim.
