The physical injuries that you can suffer in a mountaineering accident can be serious, but eventually, through the necessary treatment, they will heal. What may not be so easy to overcome will be the traumatic emotional effects and stress. In such cases, your doctor or another medical specialist may recommend mountaineering accident counselling.
The advantage of counselling after an accident is that it can help restore your self-confidence following the traumatic event, and if your injuries have been life changing, help you mentally and emotionally adapt.
You may have been prescribed counselling through the NHS, but the waiting lists can be very long. You may decide to seek private mountaineering accident counselling. Private counselling can be very expensive and put you and your family under even more financial strain at a time where you may not even be able to work because of your injuries.
However, you may be able to seek the recovery of counselling costs through a claim. This would form part of a claim for medical expenses, which would include prescription medications, and travel to and from counselling and treatment sessions.
To begin the process of making a claim and recovering counselling costs, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. Our experienced solicitors have been advising and assisting clients who have suffered accidents by helping them file claims to recover medical expenses, including the cost of counselling, since the year 2000.Open Claim Calculator

How we can help you recoup the costs of counselling
We realise you may already have started counselling sessions by the time you make contact with us. As long as the sessions were prescribed by your doctor or another competent medical professional, it should be possible to recover the costs through filing a claim.
The cost of counselling will form part of the claim, which also includes other medical costs associated with your physical injuries, wages lost while off work recovering, and the cost of personal care if it was required due to the extent of your injuries. Records and receipts of these financial losses should also be kept.
While you are under no pressure to make a claim and we are more than willing to give you advice, our Accident Advice Helpline legal team are on hand to assist and represent you if you decide to take the process further. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a no win no fee basis, so it will not be necessary for you to pay any upfront charges in order to file your claim.
We understand that, having suffered your mountaineering accident, you have been through an awful experience and the treatment may continue well into the future. By contacting us about mountaineering accident counselling, you will be taking steps to remove the financial strain if counselling forms part of your treatment.
