If you are struggling to come to terms with a plug socket accident or the injuries you suffered, then you may benefit from plug socket accident counselling.
At Accident Advice Helpline we have been helping people make personal injury claims for plug socket accidents that were not their fault since 2000. Often people think this may be just for the physical and practical impact of the accident, such as recovering costs for medicines or for time off work. Of course, this is a major part of compensation claims; however, plug socket accidents can also cause severe emotional and psychological trauma, which can continue long after the physical injuries have healed.
Plug socket accidents can cause serious and frightening injuries, sometimes with long-term health concerns. These may include severe electric shocks, leading to long-term heart or brain conditions and burns that may result in permanent disfigurement. These can be very hard to come to terms with. Even if you are not affected permanently by your injuries, it is important not to underestimate the psychological impact of your accident.
Symptoms and treatment
Psychological symptoms may be physical, such as breathlessness, sweating, muscle pain and an unusually strong or fast heartbeat. You may also find yourself unable to sleep or having nightmares when you do. Flashbacks to your plug socket accident, causing anxiety attacks can be common and you may be subject to mood swings. If you have suffered life-changing injuries you may struggle to come to terms with this and feel extreme longings for how your life used to be.
If you have any of these symptoms consult your doctor and ask if you can be referred for plug socket accident counselling. This is provided by the NHS, but long waiting lists may make you consider private counselling. However, this can be expensive, especially as you may need several sessions to help you work through your trauma. The good news is that if you have a medically recognised need for counselling and the accident was not your fault, the experienced solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you recover the costs of private counselling as part of your compensation package.
