Being in an accident can leave you with psychological as well as physical injuries. You might not notice them at first – in fact, there’s a good chance your loved ones will spot them before you do – but they can have a serious impact on your life, your ability to work and your ability to maintain healthy relationships with family and friends. Counselling can help to resolve problems such as:
- Sleeplessness and nightmares (even if they’re not directly about the accident).
- Anxiety, dizziness and panic attacks.
- Irritability, mood swings and sudden loss of temper that isn’t normal for you.
- Obsessive thoughts about the accident and related phobias.
- Depression and a feeling that it takes a lot more effort to do ordinary things.
Generally speaking, all these issues can be dealt with more effectively if counselling begins soon after the accident. Although the NHS provides counselling services, waiting lists can be lengthy, so finding waste disposal truck accident counselling quickly can be difficult. The alternative option is to seek out private counselling and this can make a big difference to your chances of making a complete recovery. That is why, if your doctor recommends it, courts are generally willing to order funding for private counselling. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you to obtain it, and we’ll give you an initial telephone consultation for free so that you can work out the best way forward.
What does claiming involve?
Making a claim for waste disposal truck accident counselling can seem a lot to take on if you’re already feeling down, but at Accident Advice Helpline we’ll do all the hard work for you. We’ll start by finding you a solicitor with experience of counselling claims so that you have the best possible representation. This will be done on a no win, no fee* basis, so you won’t have to worry about money.
You can work with your solicitor by phone or email so you won’t need to deal with travelling, and as all our expert solicitors are used to working with accident victims, you’ll find them patient and sympathetic.
Once your case is in motion, your solicitor will take care of almost everything. They may need your help to start gathering evidence and they won’t make any big decisions without your involvement, but most of the time you won’t have to do anything at all. If possible, and if you agree to it, they’ll arrange an out-of-court settlement so you won’t need to testify in court.
If you are awarded compensation, we’ll do all we can to make sure that you receive your money quickly so that you can pay for your counselling with confidence. Although it can’t always solve all your problems, counselling usually helps a great deal, and makes it much easier for you to get back to being your old self.
