Recovering from an injury is not easy, but we want you to know that if you need power plant accident counselling there are many options available to you. One of the problems with counselling through the NHS is that cuts mean that you could be waiting a long time. This can further delay your recovery. However, you do not have to have counselling on the NHS; you could opt for a private counsellor. Opting for private counselling would mean that you would need to pay for the counselling which can be difficult especially if you are already struggling financially as a result of the accident. Is this fair?
The answer is no, it is not fair; particularly if the accident and resulting injury were no fault of your own. An injury that takes a long time to heal and that leaves you unable to do the same things you did before can have a devastating effect on the mind as well as the body. If the accident was someone else’s fault, then why should you pay for the counselling to put it right?
A counselling solution
The fact is that you may be able to reclaim any charges made for counselling services as part of your compensation claim. Do not hesitate to make a claim for compensation if your doctor has recommended counselling to you, as a successful claim can give you the means to get your life back on track. Compensation is also payable for other things such as loss of earnings, and expenses such as travel to and from your hospital appointments.
Why should I claim compensation?
If you are injured badly then you could be left struggling financially while you are off work. Who pays the bills if this happens? You will still be expected to pay your bills and you will also be expected to do it promptly. How are you going to manage that?
The fact is that if you are in this position it is going to be very hard for you to manage financially unless you have a large amount of savings available to you. Unfortunately, most people do not have large rainy day funds and this is where the Accident Advice Helpline can help. We want everyone who has been the victim of a power plant accident to have access to the right advice and support, and we are in a strong position to offer this.
Power plant accident counselling is something that you should have if your doctor says that you need it, attempting to forego counselling against the doctor’s recommendations may extend your recovery time needlessly. Our personal injury solicitors will be able to explain how much compensation you may be entitled to, and will ensure that your counselling costs are taken into consideration. With a no-win, no-fee policy and a 24–hour helpline that is free to call, there is no reason not to pick up the phone and see how we can assist you in this time of need.
