You may not realise that you can make a claim for expenses associated with train passenger accident counselling. Your safety is a big responsibility for the train company and if they fail to uphold this, you suffer. An accident on a train could leave you with physical injuries, impaired quality of life, or a fear of travelling. You may have to change your lifestyle, take time off work or undergo physical therapy. Often, recovering from a train passenger accident can take a mental toll – and your doctor may advise you to seek counselling. Here’s what you need to know about making a claim in relation to a train passenger accident.
Cover the costs of train passenger accident counselling
The idea behind accident compensation claims is to ensure that you are able, as far as possible, to retain the lifestyle and position you enjoyed before the accident occurred. Your mental well-being is considered to be equally as important as your physical health. As such, your legal representative will seek to recover the costs of expenses associated with any treatment, physical or psychological, that is recommended as part of your recovery by a medical expert.
Counselling is available through the NHS, though you may face long waiting lists or find you are unable to access specialist counselling services without opting for private treatment. This is recognised by the courts, and compensation is awarded for train passenger accident counselling received through a private counselling service where it is recommended by a doctor, the same treatment is unavailable in the same timeframe through the NHS, and the costs do not significantly exceed the average for similar treatments. There is no need to delay getting the treatment you need for financial reasons.
