    Spectator accident counselling


    Suffering psychological trauma as a result of an injury sustained whilst watching an event as a spectator might ultimately result in your doctor advising that you would benefit from spectator accident counselling.

    Attending an event as a spectator should be a happy, exciting affair. Having purchased your tickets and enjoyed the slow build-up of anticipation as the event draws nearer, only to have it shattered by falling victim to an accident can be extremely upsetting and distressing. Notwithstanding the physical injury that might have been suffered, the psychological impact of having suffered a serious injury can be particularly debilitating. Accident Advice Helpline has over 15 years of experience in dealing with accident claims and sits proudly as the market-leading law firm in its field.

    Getting the spectator accident counselling you need

    Following consultation with your doctor, it may be deemed that the best course of treatment for your psychological condition would be to see a counsellor. Exploring and discussing the issues that are the root cause of your distress is crucial to your current and future well-being and allows you to cope more effectively with the factors that are causing you distress. Most of the counselling carried out by the NHS has a long waiting list, so receiving the treatment that has been prescribed to you might be delayed.

    Accident Advice Helpline knows the importance of a traumatised person having access to the services they need, at the time when they need them. As NHS services are often oversubscribed, the obvious alternative is to go to the private sector for therapy. Unfortunately, this will not be free but the in-house solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline believe that cost should not be a factor that affects a person’s ability to receive healthcare treatment.

    Although Accident Advice Helpline cannot fund your counselling directly, we can assist in ensuring that the fees you pay are fully reimbursed. This means that the psychological help that is required is accessed immediately and does not have the opportunity to become more deeply rooted. There are no upfront fees to pay and every case is taken on a strict no-win, no-fee basis.
