If you are the victim of a sightseeing accident, that was not your fault, it is important that you seek the right help and support in a timely fashion; i.e. sightseeing accident counselling.
What is a sightseeing accident?
A sightseeing accident can relate to almost anything, any situation that could feasibly occur whilst touring the landmarks of a new city or town. This includes road accidents, injuries sustained on organised excursions, and injuries relating to the poor maintenance of landmarks.
The typical ‘sightseer,’ no matter how confident, is always bound to be a little vulnerable – particularly if they are far from home. If the worst does happen, it is not only physical damage that can occur, because psychological trauma is a danger too. This type of accident, even if it doesn’t end in serious injury, can cause a huge amount of anxiety – which is likely to force the sufferer to take time away from work, and potentially lose earnings.
If this description fits you, you could be eligible for sightseeing accident counselling and a fair amount of financial compensation. However, the accident in question does have to have occurred within the last three years, and be a result of negligence, on the part of a third party, in order for this to be the case.
Who should I talk to?
If your doctor does refer you for counselling, you will be paired with an NHS professional. This service is without charge, so you will not incur expenses. However, this is not the only option. If you prefer to seek private treatment, or there are no available appointments on the NHS, it may be necessary to consult with a private clinic – after all psychological trauma is a condition that cannot wait.
Whilst, this is ultimately a personal choice, because it does involve additional fees, there is a good chance that we may be able to help you recover some, or all, of the costs.
How much will it cost?
If you have been officially referred for counselling, by a GP, there is a chance that you may be able to recoup some of the costs of private treatment. The experts at Accident Advice Helpline can support you with this process, by evaluating the details of your case and making a claim for financial compensation on your behalf.
We cannot pay for your treatment, but we can fight to get the fees, or a portion of the fees, for private treatment returned to you. The likelihood of this outcome increases alongside the strength of a case, which is why it is so important to keep a photographic record of both your injuries and the elements that caused them. This will greatly strengthen your case for a payout.
If you have received, or are due to receive, treatment from a private counselling service, and would like help recovering a portion of the costs, call one of our friendly advisors direct today on 0800 180 4123. We operate a free 24-hour helpline, so do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange a consultation.
