Being involved in a speedboat accident might leave you in such a state of emotional and psychological trauma that you require professional intervention in the form of speedboat accident counselling. For people who have been involved in speedboat accidents it is not always the physical injuries that last the longest; the psychological scars can last forever and the development of new worries and fears is commonplace.
Following your accident it is most likely that you will have been assessed as requiring counselling as part of an ongoing treatment plan to assist in your rehabilitation. Counselling is a long-term, interactive process by which the events surrounding the trauma are fully explored, discussed and examined in order to focus your thoughts in a more constructive manner and teach you to cope with the trauma of the incident in a more positive way.
It is highly probable that your GP will refer you to local NHS services for your counselling appointments. There is often a problem with obtaining appointments within the NHS as there are invariably very long waiting lists for counselling services. Having to wait long periods of time for an appointment may not only raise stress levels further but may also allow the trauma to become more deeply ingrained. It is therefore crucial that you receive psychological assistance as quickly as possible. The alternative to NHS provision is to go to a private clinic or counselling service.
The cost of private counselling
As opposed to the free counselling services provided by the NHS, there will definitely be a cost implication should you opt for a private counselling service. Prices may vary, although it is not considered a cheap treatment. Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in attempting to recover the cost of your counselling therapy by initiating a personal injury compensation claim, using their skilled team of in-house solicitors to recoup expenditure on your treatment. Providing you have medical evidence in support of your need for counselling, their experienced and tenacious team will work hard to secure your financial compensation.
For you to be eligible to make a claim, your accident must have happened within the previous three years and must have resulted from somebody else’s negligent actions. The representatives of Accident Advice Helpline will assist and guide you through the claims process and advise you on the validity of your claim. You will need to provide detailed information about the accident as well as any supporting evidence that backs up your claim such as speeds of travel, faulty walkways or poor maintenance of the boat.
