    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Stairlift accident counselling

    Stairlift accident counselling can form an essential part of your rehabilitation from a serious injury suffered at home or at work. If you are worried about the costs involved with private healthcare but want to start counselling immediately, you may want to look at recovering your financial outgoings by making a personal injury claim. If you can prove that another person or company was at fault for your accident, Accident Advice Helpline can work on your behalf to establish a compensation package just for you. Our free, 24-hour helpline is available if you have any queries or questions about counselling claims.

    Immediate treatment

    Elderly people make the majority of stairlift accident claims as accidents often take place in the home. These accidents can be very serious, as broken bones are difficult for the over-65s to recover from. If you suffered trauma or other psychological problems following the accident then your doctor may have told you to seek counselling to aid your rehabilitation; however, immediate treatment on the NHS is unlikely due to the demand for counselling sessions. Private treatment is another viable option but the cost may put an additional strain on your finances at a time when you have already incurred financial losses as a result of the accident. Accident Advice Helpline can make the whole process easy for you. While we are not counsellors ourselves and unable to refer you to a specialist, our expert lawyers will work tirelessly to seek a monetary sum to cover your costs in the form of compensation. This compensation will allow you to book private counselling sessions without the worry of financial ruin. A substantial fee could also make it easier for you or an elderly relative to come to terms with his or her current situation.

    Medical evidence

    For your claim to be successful you will need medical evidence to support it. This comes in the form of documents from hospital, your GP, a specialist or other qualified healthcare professional. In some circumstances you may have to attend an independent assessment and this can be arranged by one of our friendly and helpful advisors. You or your relative will have to talk in detail about the accident with our caring staff.

    Starting the claims process

    If you are recovering from a serious injury and in a fragile state of mind then you may want a close relative to start the claims process for you to ease any stress. You can make a claim for counselling costs if the accident took place during the last three years and someone else was to blame. If a third party could have prevented the accident, no matter how honourable or genuine their intentions, then you have a right to claim for compensation. Our no win, no fee policy makes it incredibly easy to make a claim as no funds are needed beforehand. Call us today on 0800 180 1423 or use our online compensation calculator to see whether you are eligible for a stairlift accident counselling claim.
