If you have been the victim of a wedding show accident that was not your fault and you have been suffering psychologically since the incident, you may need wedding show accident counselling.
What is a wedding show accident?
A wedding show accident can take various different forms. In truth, it can relate to almost anything and everything that could plausibly occur while visiting or touring a wedding trade fair, market, or exposition. This includes trips, slips, and falls; injuries sustained while on externally organised excursions; and injuries relating to the poor maintenance of stalls, displays, and supporting structures.
As with all public and commercial environments, a wedding show must be made as safe and secure as possible for everybody who visits it. This means that the integrity of stalls must be regularly checked, and any overhanging displays must be kept secure and monitored for risk. If any of these criteria are not taken care of, it may constitute a legal breach of care, and compensation could be sought in response.
What is wedding show accident counselling?
It is not only physical damage that can occur as a result of a wedding show accident, because psychological trauma is common too. This type of accident, even when not resulting in serious injury, can cause significant emotional problems. Accidents such as these can lead to the fear of visiting commercial environments, or fear of weddings themselves. If this is the case, your doctor may decide to refer you for wedding show accident counselling.
Who do I talk to?
If your doctor does decide to refer you for counselling, it is likely that you will be paired with an NHS counsellor. However, this is not the only option. If you prefer to seek private treatment, or there are no appointments available through the NHS, it may be necessary to consult with a private clinic. This is a personal choice, and it does involve fees, whereas NHS treatment is available at no charge.
How much will counselling cost?
If you have been officially referred for counselling by your doctor, there is a chance that you may be able to recover some of the costs of private treatment. The experts at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with this process by evaluating the details of your case and making a claim for financial compensation on your behalf.
We cannot pay for your treatment, but we can fight to get the fees, or a portion of the fees, for private treatment returned to you. This is why it is so important to build a strong case with photographic evidence of both your injuries and the negligence that caused them. Our expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis, so you won’t have to pay any upfront charges either.
Can I make a claim?
If you have received or require treatment from a private counselling service, and would like help recovering a portion of the costs, call one of our friendly advisors direct today on 0800 689 0500. We operate a free, 24-hour helpline, so do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange a consultation.
