    Triathlon accident counselling


    If you were injured while taking part in a triathlon, then you may need to receive triathlon accident counselling as part of your recovery programme. Taking part in a triathlon can be a great experience. As lovers of the activity know, triathlon athletes can be challenged to their utmost limits. Typically, a triathlon involves three stages: swimming, cycling and running. Although it can be invigorating, physically rewarding and great fun, taking part in a triathlon can also be risky. Sometimes, accidents happen during triathlon events.

    What are the risks in competing in a triathlon?

    Swimming, cycling and running competitively can be rewarding and a great experience. Competitors in a triathlon will train for many months before an event, ensuring that they perform to the best of their abilities on the day. Sometimes, however, injuries can occur because of lack of training. Athletes who lose their concentration or go off course suddenly can pose a danger to the people around them. In addition, the course itself, whether in the water, on the road or cross-country, can be badly maintained or inadequately prepared. If you suffered a triathlon accident that was not your fault, you could be able to claim financial compensation for it.

    How financial compensation can help pay towards your counselling costs?

    If you were injured taking part in a triathlon, your doctor may recommend counselling as part of your healing process. This is where Accident Advice Helpline could help. Normally, counselling is available on the NHS. This typically means that there are no costs involved. However, a potential drawback is the long waiting lists for counselling on the NHS and it may be many weeks before an appointment can be obtained. If NHS counselling is available, the travel costs involved in going to and from your place of treatment can be high. If treatment cannot be arranged via the NHS, it may be necessary to go down the private treatment route. Private professional counselling treatment can be very expensive and might have to go on for a long time.

    If someone else caused your triathlon accident, your claim for financial compensation through Accident Advice Helpline could include your private counselling costs and any associated expenses.
