At Accident Advice Helpline we have dealt with clients who have had trampoline accident counselling due to the after effects of an injury suffered on a trampoline. As specialists in the area of personal injury law, we have seen thousands of accident cases and some of those have involved trampolines.
While fun, trampolines can also cause serious injury if built or assembled incorrectly. Safe operation dictates the use of trained attendants, but it is not unusual for them to be missing from gymnasiums and fitness centres. If you have been injured through no fault of your own because of a trampoline accident, you need to contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible.
If you – or maybe someone you know – are considering filing a compensation claim, you will need to be aware that the sooner you act the better. For whatever treatment you need there are waiting lists and this is true of counselling. If your doctor has referred you to a counsellor through the NHS then you could be waiting a considerable length of time for your first session. The longer you wait, the longer your recovery period could be and this is why some people opt for private counselling instead. This option can be costly but Accident Advice Helpline will do all they can to factor these costs into your compensation claim.
You can claim for compensation for both general and special damages.
Special damages include things like medical costs and prescription costs, loss of earnings whilst injured, car or transportation hire, therapy costs and costs of care while recovering. They can also include the cost of any counselling sessions that are needed to fully recover from an accident. The after effects of an accident can be serious and long lasting, and sometimes the non-physical injuries can be the most difficult to recover from. Depression and anxiety symptoms are not uncommon in an accident victim. Since counselling must be taken in a planned, methodical fashion, it’s essential that your claim remain open until every aspect of your recovery is settled.
If you are eligible to claim for general damages this will include things like pain and suffering or loss of amenity, which means the loss of enjoyment of life, particularly for things that you used to be able to do before the accident (for example, gardening or running) and that you can no longer enjoy due to the accident.
