Treating mental health issues as early as possible is vital in terms of gaining an early recovery, and forestalling your mental condition worsening and possibly causing irreparable damage.
Many people with mental health issues find that the National Health Service cannot provide the help and support that they need. Unfortunately, private mental health care and treatment comes at a price; a price which many people do not think they can afford.
Treating mental health issues through a compensation award
However, if the underlying cause of a mental health issue can be traced back to an accident or incident that someone else was to blame for, it may well be possible that the victim can apply for personal injury compensation, and if this is the case, treating mental health issues can be covered by the compensation award.
The most common mental problems that are covered under compensation law, include PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and depression. Both illnesses must be attributed directly to an accident or incident that someone else was responsible for. The only point you need to bear in mind is that in many instances, mental injuries can be more difficult to deal with than physical injuries, and this is where choosing the best injury claim solicitors becomes key.
There are hundreds of injury claim solicitors out there, and many of them offer no win no fee guarantees like we do here at Accident Advice Helpline, so it’s not always easy to know which one is best for you and your claim. So, how can you make a qualified decision?
