Being a photographer should be a relatively safe and uneventful occupation. We all are aware, however, that accidents can happen at any time and could lead a person to consider photographer accident counselling. Photographs are something we see each day without really thinking too much about the person who took the picture. News events are widely photographed, celebrities, events, special occasions and animals are constantly having the lens of a camera pointed in their direction. It has been seen on many occasions that some of the subjects of the pictures may not react so well to being photographed. People can react quite angrily to what they might see as an invasion of privacy – despite knowing it is someone doing their job.
Not only people and animals put the photographer at risk of injury. Photo shoots and studio sets and outdoor photographic works all carry numerous occupational hazards that can cause injury and distress.
Counselling is a medium- to long-term therapy that assists a person in coming to terms and dealing with issues relating to an incident that has caused them psychological trauma. It is an essential therapy for many people, allows them to start rebuilding their life, and seeing things in a more positive, focused way. Your medical practitioner will probably refer you to local NHS counselling services as part of your treatment plan. Unfortunately, given the high demand for counselling, such services usually have a long waiting list – something that is seen as hugely detrimental to the recovery of the injured party. The alternative, though not a free service like the NHS, is to seek counselling from a private medical company to ensure that your treatment plan can commence.
Accident Advice Helpline cannot pay for your counselling services but it can work to recover the cost of your counselling therapy. This is done by instituting a personal injury compensation claim. Led by one of our expert in-house solicitors, your case will be assessed and processed so that you can be assured that the best possible financial outcome will be reached. For your case to be taken on by our highly motivated and experienced team, the accident that resulted in the need for counselling must have happened within a three years period prior to the date that you are applying for financial assistance. The accident must also have been the fault of a third party.
