Anyone who has ever tried to get Neighbourhood Watch accident counselling will know that it is not easy. You need to go through your doctor, who has to confirm that you need the counselling to get over your mental trauma. You will then be left waiting until the NHS has the time to see you. This is not ideal and if you have been involved in a traumatic incident, your recovery can be severely delayed. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we understand how difficult this can be, and when you are forced to pay for counselling yourself just in order to get your recovery moving, we want to support you in recovering those costs.
How can the Accident Advice Helpline help me?
Once you have arranged your own Neighbourhood Watch accident counselling then you need to find a way of meeting those costs. The money has to come out of your own pocket, which means that you could be left struggling. If you make a claim for personal injury compensation, then the cost of your counselling could be taken into consideration as part of your pay-out. After all, why should you pay for it yourself when the accident was not your fault?
Why would I need counselling?
Any kind of traumatic incident can leave a person struggling to cope. Suppose you met with an aggressive person as part of your Neighbourhood Watch duties. This could leave you afraid to go out of the house on your own and this is a situation that is not fair. Working as part of a Neighbourhood Watch team does not mean that you should be put in any danger. In fact, you should always be working with others to ensure your own protection. The right counselling can mean that you are able to face the world again and that you will be able to go back to life as it was before the incident. Some people do cope better than others when it comes to incidents like this, but that does not mean that you should go without the necessary counselling.
