    Podologist accident counselling

    Injuries to your feet can be particularly debilitating both physically and psychologically and it may be that, having suffered an injury during treatment to your feet, you require podologist accident counselling in order to come to terms with your trauma.

    Your feet are crucial to your everyday quality of life and their importance is often ignored until you suffer an injury or disease that compromises your ability to carry out daily tasks. A podologist is a skilled practitioner who ensures that a person’s feet are either at, or restored to, their optimum level of health. Being crucial to our movement, our feet should always be treated with care and respect, as, for the majority of people, our ability to make a living is dependent upon them. Most podologists are extremely skilled and thoroughly professional health practitioners but they, like every other health professional, are capable of making mistakes or misjudgements that can cause injury or trauma to their patient. Having suffered medical or surgical trauma can result in severe psychological harm that could necessitate the intervention of a highly-skilled counsellor.

    Following your accident you may have received medical advice stating that you require the intervention of a counsellor to aid your long-term recovery. As counselling services hosted by the NHS are oversubscribed it could be that, rather than simply joining a waiting list with no indication of when you can expect treatment, you would prefer to seek a quicker counselling intervention and look to the private sector to meet your needs. Clearly, this will have financial implications as, unlike the NHS, private practices charge for their services. This is where the skills and experience of Accident Advice Helpline could prove invaluable to you.

    Our team of legal experts strongly believe that, as the victim of a situation where you were injured because of someone else’s practice, you should not have to carry the burden of the cost of your treatment. Counselling needs to take place within a specified timeframe since leaving such trauma untreated might result in more entrenched psychological damage that is more difficult to manage and treat. The Accident Advice Helpline cannot pay your fees for you, but can be pivotal in ensuring that your podologist accident counselling fees are reimbursed.

    One of our in-house expert lawyers, leading your personal injury compensation claim, will need evidence that counselling is considered a medical necessity within your treatment package and, once this has been established, will utilise his or her vast experience within the claims field to provide you with the best resolution to your personal injury claim. All the work of Accident Advice Helpline is on a no win, no fee basis with no upfront costs required. Our helpline is available 24 hours a day and is contactable online as well as by calling 0800 689 0500 from a land line or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. All calls are free. Text “Claim365” to 88010 for one of our representatives to call you back and discuss your claim in detail.
