A traumatic road traffic accident can be a difficult thing to recover from emotionally, and specialist road traffic accident counselling can make a big difference. If you’re struggling to cope after being in an accident that wasn’t your fault, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a claim that includes financial help for getting the counselling you need. This could help you to start living life on your own terms once again.
Compensation and counselling
The compensation system, as outlined in law, is designed to make up for your suffering and help you get back to living your life the way you did before your accident. In the case of severe injuries this isn’t always feasible, but the idea is to do as much as possible according to your needs. This means that if you need counselling, the party responsible for your accident should pay for it. This applies whether that party is an individual road user or a local council that failed in its duty to maintain the road surface properly.
After an accident, people’s reactions can vary greatly. You may be coping well in general but need road traffic accident counselling to give you the confidence to get back behind the wheel. You might need help just to feel safe going outside and crossing roads. As long as an appropriately qualified professional thinks that your counselling is important in order for you to live a normal life, it is possible to get it considered in a compensation settlement.
No win no fee*
Accident Advice Helpline use a no win no fee* system. This means that we don’t ask you for any money to start your claim, nor do we ask you for any money if we lose. We are also happy to give you our advice, even if you choose not to claim with us. Just give us a call on our 24/7 helpline and our advisors will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
In order to claim, you will need to have been treated by a qualified medical professional for problems stemming from your accident. The accident will need to have happened within the past three years but there are some exceptions to this, so ask us if you are uncertain.
How it works
If you decide that you want to make a claim, we can match you up with a specialist road traffic accident solicitor to give you the best possible chance of winning your case. We’ll keep travel and paperwork to a minimum, and we may even be able to arrange for you to receive compensation without having to appear in court. Throughout, we’ll do our best to make sure that the process doesn’t add to your stress.
A successful claim can ensure that, on top of the other money you receive, you are properly funded for any counselling you are likely to need in the future. When you know that’s taken care of, you can focus on your recovery. Call us today on 0800 689 0500.
