    Marathon accident counselling


    If you were involved in an accident during a marathon then you may require marathon accident counselling to help with your recovery.

    An accident can lead to not only physical injuries that cause pain and suffering and a loss of income, plus other additional costs, but psychological damage as well. The same also applies if you have suffered a marathon accident. The resulting injury may not only damage you physically but also psychologically. In such cases you may well require marathon accident counselling.

    Problems likely when accessing marathon accident counselling

    In a perfect world you would be able to access marathon accident counselling free of charge on the NHS. However, we are living in a time of ever tighter NHS budgets, so if you can access counselling in your own area, the waiting lists are more than likely to be very long. Even then, the type of counselling available may not be of the specialised variety that you require.

    All of this means that to secure the counselling you need you may well have to go private and that can be prohibitively expensive and difficult, especially as you may well have lost income because of an absence from work due to your physical injuries.

    One way to recover marathon accident counselling costs is by pursuing a claim for compensation. This means embarking on a legal process – you are therefore advised to seek the best advice possible, such as we provide at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Our expert personal injury lawyers are able to determine if you have grounds for a claim, and if so, will aid you in pursuing it.

    Your initial injury and the consequences that follow will undoubtedly lead to times of stress. A successful claim may provide the money to cover the high costs of marathon accident counselling. However, you may be concerned that our assistance will be too expensive for you, something you shouldn’t have to worry about during such a stressful time. Those fears should be laid to rest because at Accident Advice Helpline we work on a no win no fee basis. This means that if we believe you have grounds for compensation, you will not have to pay out any money up front. We will pursue the claim on your behalf, which could ultimately cover the costs of your counselling.

    How to contact Accident Advice Helpline

    We have made it very easy for you to contact Accident Advice Helpline, thanks to our Freephone and mobile helpline available 24/7. You can also contact us by text message. Our helpline advisers are all highly trained. By contacting them you may well be taking those first steps towards securing the compensation you deserve following your marathon accident.

    Securing marathon accident counselling

    To secure compensation for the marathon accident you suffered, you cannot have been responsible for the incident. The claim for compensation will be made against the third party responsible for your misfortune.

    As with any personal injury claim you must have received a medical examination by a doctor as soon as possible after the event – his/her report may well specify your need for marathon accident counselling. Following on from the doctor’s report, Accident Advice Helpline will strive to secure the compensation that will hopefully help you get your life back on track, both physically and psychologically.
