    Occupational therapist accident counselling


    If you are struggling with the psychological after effects of an occupational therapist accident which was not your fault, it could be useful for you to undergo occupational therapist accident counselling.

    What is an occupational therapist accident?

    This type of accident can be defined as an incident resulting in either minor or severe injuries and which takes place during professional support work with mentally or physically impaired clients. This is a profession which can be emotionally challenging and is very physically “hands on.”

    Whilst you cannot claim for an injury resulting from personal shortcomings, such as a failure to adhere to safety protocols and legally viable practices, you may be eligible for compensation if your injuries are the result of unsafe treatment environments, undisclosed risks relating to patients, inadequate equipment or any other factor which is out of your control.

    In order to be eligible, your accident must have occurred within the last three years. It must also have been the result of negligence from a third party. However, this is not the case for occupational therapist accident counselling, which is available even if you are not able to lodge a formal case.

    Why should I make a claim?

    This type of accident can result in injuries that are painful and lead to chronic aches and strains in the weeks and months following the incident. There may also be some psychological trauma. If this is the case, your doctor may decide to refer you for occupational therapist accident counselling. If you opt for treatment on the NHS, there will be no charge for counselling. However, if you decide to opt for private treatment, you will have to pay for the costs yourself.

    Open Claim Calculator

    For occupational therapist accident counselling on the NHS, you will need a referral from a GP. For treatment at a private clinic, you will need the money to meet potentially costly rates. We understand that this can be difficult, so as part of the claims procedure, will seek recovery of these costs. It is worth bearing this in mind when choosing a counsellor, especially if there are no NHS appointments open.

    How much will occupational therapist counselling cost?

    There is no way to tell how exactly how much private occupational therapist accident counselling will cost without a direct referral from your GP first. There is a wide variety of counselling services available in this country, from the very sophisticated to the less expensive. It is entirely up to you what level of treatment you decide to choose. Our job is to attempt to recover the expenses.

    We cannot pay for your occupational therapist accident counselling, but we can fight to get the fees returned to you, using your original personal injury claim. Our expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis, so you will not have to pay any upfront charges in order to work with us. We operate a helpline, so give us a call today on 0800 689 0500.
