Ultimate Frisbee accident counselling may be needed as the games can be very fast and exhilarating, so accidents and injuries are can be a potential downside of playing the game.
How much does accident counselling cost?
When you were involved in your ultimate Frisbee accident, you may have been exposed to a traumatic experience directly impacting on you or others around you. You may have been advised to see a psychological counsellor if your doctor thought it necessary. In most instances, you will have been referred to a counsellor working through the NHS. Such counselling is typically free at the point of use, costs being covered by the state.
Sometimes, however, there may be few available spaces on the NHS counsellor’s waiting list. You could find yourself waiting for several weeks or longer before you are able to start your psychological treatment. In fact, there may not be time for you to wait: you should always try to minimise the amount of time between sustaining an injury and having it properly treated.
You may find that you can start counselling sooner by going private. The quality of the treatment is often the same, with the counsellor in question accepting patients coming through the NHS as well as seeing them on a private basis. The main difference, of course, is that private counselling is not free.

Your compensation claim
When you are involved in an accident caused by someone else, you can make an accident claim for your physical or psychological injuries. To help you in this and to give you expert advice, Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000. We have helped thousands of individuals over the years to make claims for accidents they did not cause.
Accident Advice Helpline cannot pay towards your private counselling costs, but it can help you make the best claim to suit your circumstances. You can then use the proceeds of a successful claim to pay towards your private counselling.
To make a claim, you need to be able to show that a third party caused your ultimate Frisbee accident. There may be witnesses to support this, or you may have taken photographs or a video showing how someone else was at fault for your accident. You may have been struck by the Frisbee, or you could have witnessed someone else being badly injured. You may have been playing on a field that was overrun by cattle, or in which there were boggy areas in which you got stuck.
