The impact of experiencing an accident can be serious – affecting you both physically and psychologically. Working as a stockbroker, you may often be in highly charged situations as you transact profitable deals on behalf of your employer. This may mean that you can temporarily forget about your personal safety – and your accident may have been the result of unforeseen or sudden risks. Following your physical or mental injury, you may have been advised to seek out stockbroker accident counselling. Counselling can be an important part of your recovery and help you return to your life as it was before the accident. Contacting an experienced personal injury law firm like Accident Advice Helpline is a great first step.
Mental health counselling
Highly trained, skilled professionals can provide you with stockbroker accident counselling. The standard of mental health care, both in the NHS and in the private sector, tends to be high. Practitioners are regularly inspected, to ensure that they stay above a certain standard of care. You may be wary of seeing a counsellor, either because you are unsure of what mental health care involves or because you think that others may look at you differently for seeking psychological help. In fact, part of your concern may be rooted in the circumstances of your stockbroker accident, as you experience more general feelings of anxiety or depression. You may have frequent nightmares or be unable to sleep or react calmly to how others treat you.
Mental health counselling is designed to help you regain control over your own life. You should not feel ashamed for wanting to eliminate the negative side-effects of your stockbroker accident from your life.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help?
Accident Advice Helpline does not offer mental health care directly. We do not employ counsellors, nor can we offer you advice about which type of counselling would be best for you. Where we could be of benefit to you is in helping you gain financial compensation for your stockbroker accident. So how can a successful claim help you seek out stockbroker accident counselling?
Here, you should consider that you might be best served by seeking out private counselling, rather than treatment with the NHS. Although you can find excellent counsellors working in both sectors, the main difference can be that private counselling eliminates the waiting list issue, so that you can see a counsellor without unnecessary delays. Starting your care sooner rather than later may not be a luxury, but a necessity.
How to claim compensation
To claim financial compensation for your stockbroker accident, your accident must have been caused by someone else. This may be a private individual, your employer or other organisation.

Our lawyers can help you navigate your claim and guide you through the difficult legal process.
