If you are struggling with the psychological after effects of a power cables accident that was not your fault, it could be time to think about power cables accident counselling.
What is a power cables accident?
The dangers associated with live power cables should be obvious, even if they aren’t always easy to avoid – particularly when the right safety protocols and regulations are not in place. In fact, any environment, which contains electrical conduits or items, is a potential hazard. In the case of power cables, there are trips, falls, and slips on unsecured devices, as well as exposure to the risk of electrocution and electrical burns.
In some rare cases, fatalities have resulted from power cables accidents, so it is vital that site managers and safety officials do not fail in their duty of care towards workers and visitors. They need to make sure that employees are properly trained, fully informed, and always protected – whether this means taping power cables close to the floor in order to avoid trip hazards, or training forklift drivers in material handling while in close proximity to overhead cables.
What is the next step?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that workplace accidents can leave more than just physical scars. They can empty the wallet, put a strain on relationships, and cause challenging psychological issues. It is not uncommon for those who have been involved in serious accidents to develop serious phobias relating to the environment in which their injuries were sustained. For an industrial worker this could be devastating, as well as financially draining.
If you are battling with psychological side effects, your doctor may have referred you to power cables accident counselling. In the case of such a referral, you will be given the choice of NHS treatment or private care at a private clinic. While NHS treatment is without charge, you will have to pay for private treatment. Private treatment may be preferable to an extensive waiting list for an appointment through NHS.
How much will treatment cost?
The cost of private counselling varies from clinic to clinic, so it is difficult to estimate how much a patient might have to spend on treatment. While a financial compensation package will not pay for counselling directly, it can help you to obtain funding to either pay for some portion of the counselling fees or to recover some money that has already been spent on counselling fees. We believe that the negligent party should be held responsible for not only your physical trauma, but also any loss of earnings and costly medical bills.
Our expert solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis, so you won’t have to pay any upfront charges in order to file a claim for compensation. We also operate a free 24-hour helpline, so you can give us a call on 0800 180 4123 at the time that is best for you. The road to recovery might be tricky sometimes, but it is always easier with a helping hand.
