If you are finding it hard to cope in the aftermath of an accident on court, specialist wheelchair basketball accident counselling could be what you need. Although it is normally available on the NHS, waiting times can be long, and going private can be expensive, however, it may be possible for you to get your treatment fully funded through a compensation award, even if you did not suffer any physical injuries as a result of your accident.
If you give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline we can discuss your situation and help you to work out the best way forward. Your case will be dealt with on a no win, no fee* basis and we won’t put you under any pressure because our long experience of helping people in situations like this means that we understand how difficult they can be.
Do you need help?
If you think you might need wheelchair basketball accident counselling the first thing you should do is talk to your doctor, who will be able to make a recommendation for you. Symptoms you should look out for include depression, or a feeling that you lack the energy to undertake normal tasks; anxiety, dizziness or sudden panicky feelings; or sudden mood swings (which are often noticed first by friends and family members). If you have trouble sleeping, or have obsessive thoughts about the accident, this could also indicate a problem.
As an athlete, someone used to pushing yourself hard, you may find it difficult to acknowledge that you need help from other people. It can be helpful to think of this as one more challenge, like overcoming a physical injury or breaking your shooting record. Wheelchair basketball accident counselling is not a passive experience.
Its success rate depends on what you put into it. If you make the effort, you can come out of the process stronger and better equipped not just to get back to living a normal life, but to succeed at the things that matter most to you.
Compensation and wheelchair basketball accident counselling
Wheelchair basketball accident counselling can be included in a compensation package because the courts understand that it is often an important part of the recovery process. In order to receive it, however, you will need a good sports injury solicitor. If you simply look online or in the phone book, it could take you a long time to find someone suitable.
At Accident Advice Helpline we can put you in touch with the right person very quickly, and our no win, no fee* system means that you do not need to have the finance in place before you can afford to take action.
We have a great record of winning cases, and because we won’t get paid unless we do, we have an extra reason to work hard. This does not mean that you will have to deal with a lot of extra things. We will contact you only when things need to be clarified or when decisions need to be made, and we will keep everything as simple as possible.
Call 0800 689 0500 today to get things started and you soon could be receiving the help you need in order to start enjoying life again.
