Pet attack counselling could be vital to your recovery if you have been struggling with a traumatic accident. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to recover the costs of counselling if it has been recommended to you by your doctor.
We can do this by making a compensation claim for your pet attack accident. Get in touch with our advisors through our 24-hour free helpline if you want to confirm your eligibility for counselling compensation, or to ask any other questions about personal injury claims.
Accident Advice Helpline
Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm. We provide legal representation to clients and assist them with filing claims for counselling costs. We are not medical experts, so we cannot urge you to seek counselling or refer you to a counsellor. However, if your doctor has recommended counselling to you, we can help you to secure a package that could enable you to recover any expenses and costs associated with it. These expenses could relate to private counselling sessions, travel expenses to those sessions, or any prescription costs.
If your doctor thinks that counselling will aid your rehabilitation, then we are here to manage the whole claims process for you. If you were involved in an accident that was the fault of a third party, then you are eligible to make a no win, no fee* compensation claim. The accident must have taken place during the last three years, and you must have received treatment at a hospital, or at the scene from medical staff.
Pet attacks are a common occurrence. The accident itself is capable of leaving a lasting physical and psychological impact on victims with wounds and lacerations matched by mental anguish and suffering. Pet owners have a duty of care to the general public, they can be held liable if their negligence contributed to the accident. For example, they would be at fault if they knew or should have known that the dog or animal was dangerous.
If you were injured by one of the four dog breeds prohibited in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, then it will be easier to make a successful claim. However, all dogs can pose a danger to humans in certain situations. If the pet has history of aggression and has attacked the general public before, then we can use this information to support your claim. We recommend that you determine the dog’s status immediately if possible, and notify the police or local council following the accident.
A pet attack counselling claim with Accident Advice Helpline can put you on the road to a full recovery. While it cannot banish the memories of a traumatic experience, it can help you to fund the counselling you need. You can get counselling on the NHS but you may find that you are required to wait months for a session.
Private counselling is recommended as you can start straight away, but the costs can mount up over the long term. Filing a claim with us could help to pay for those sessions, so keep all your receipts and get in touch with us from a landline on: 0800 689 0500.
