Following an accident with a kitchen appliance, you may find yourself suffering from traumatic injuries. Receiving kitchen appliance accident counselling could help speed your recovery.
Accidents occur on a daily basis, even in the kitchen.

Call them today at 0800 689 0500 to speak to a trained advisor. The solicitors operate on a no-win, no-fee basis and the initial claims assessment is free.
Causes of trauma
There are many ways in which a person could be traumatised, and accident injury is a common cause. Some physical injuries can change your life forever. A kitchen appliance injury can leave you physically scarred or experiencing chronic pain. This could cause a significant amount of trauma that requires emotional support, as well as physical rehabilitation, surgery or additional medical procedures. Although you may not be physically harmed, an accident in the kitchen can cause you to be afraid of using certain cooking equipment. Although you were unharmed, being involved in the experience can still lead to traumatic feelings that must be healed through counselling, so you can return to your normal life.
Reactions to trauma
It is completely normal to be upset following trauma. In the first two or three days following the accident, the injured person is likely to be confused, disoriented or in disbelief. They may be upset, unsteady or angry that this occurred. Within the first month, the injured may experience flashbacks of the event and have trouble sleeping, or some may lose their appetite and feel tired or depressed. This is their natural process of making sense of what has occurred. This helps them digest the traumatic experience.
After the first month, most individuals return to normal with around 30 per cent still experiencing symptoms for a longer period. In this instance, you need professional help to gradually improve. Around 1-2 per cent of those who continue to exhibit symptoms have the potential for developing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
