An accident in a warehouse can be traumatic for the victim, and coping with the ordeal may mean that person needs warehouse worker accident counselling. When a person files a personal injury claim, the severity of their injuries must be taken into consideration in order to ascertain whether counselling is needed. The treatment that a person may need while they are in convalescence should be included in the claim for compensation.
Many workers have a family at home who they provide for and a serious injury can put an unwelcome halt to the finances that go into the family home. The result of being unable to provide for their family while a person recovers from their injuries can be considerable distress to the victim, who is already suffering a lot of pain and pressure from the incident they have experienced. Although our specialist solicitors will endeavour to include loss of earnings in the claim for compensation, the stress of no longer being the breadwinner can have considerable psychological repercussions.
Being unable to work for long periods can also affect a person’s mental state. Healthy people are used to being active and when this simple freedom is taken away from them they can become sullen, melancholy and frustrated. These feelings can develop into further problems such as anxiety or depression and getting the right treatment is paramount to ensure that the situation does not worsen for the victim.

Another symptom of developing psychological stress is the inability of the victim to face the world at large. Some workers are unable to function properly as they recover from their injuries and this can give a real knock to a person’s confidence. The person may feel that they are unable to socialise and they may fear the prospect of eventually going back to work as the incident they have experienced could leave them mentally scarred. Gradual reintegration into everyday life may be needed and receiving accident counselling may be the only way that a person can achieve this.
