If you’ve been in a major accident, serious injury counselling can be an important part of the recovery process. It can help you to get over the shock of what happened and help you learn to live with any lasting pain or disability. If the accident that caused your problems wasn’t your fault, here at Accident Advice Helpline we believe you shouldn’t have to pay for the help you need because of it. We can help you to make a claim to cover the costs.
Living with a serious injury
Living with a serious injury can affect you in all kinds of ways. Physical issues may initially seem to be the biggest concern. You might no longer be able to live independently, or you might not be able to do things you used to enjoy. Even if you are expected to recover in the long term, this can have a big impact on your life.
Given these physical issues, many people underestimate the impact that the emotional trauma can have on them. Problems such as nightmares or a habit of avoiding certain situations can seem minor at first, but can become a serious issue over time. Serious injury counselling can help with these problems and is usually more effective if you get it early on. It can also help you to look at your life in a new way. You might discover coping strategies that help you get back to doing some of the things you enjoyed in the past. You might find new kinds of pleasure in life, despite your difficulties.
How compensation can help
Compensation settlements following accidents are not just about making up for what has already happened. They are about making things better for you in the future. If you save receipts, you can begin getting counselling as soon as you feel the need and still claim for it as part of a compensation settlement. If an award is made, it can include money to fund as much counselling as your doctors think you are likely to need in the future.
Winning a compensation claim can also help because it will stop you having to worry about financial issues. You can receive compensation for lost earnings and money to help you live in the long term if you’ve been forced to give up work. It’s a lot easier to cope with stress relating to your injuries if you don’t have money problems to worry about as well.
