    What are you scared of?

    Spiders, clowns and things that go bump in the night? Or Getting into your car and driving to work, walking along a pavement in a busy town or being in a vehicle, travelling on a motorway?

    Many clients of injury lawyers in Witney will tell you that a common consequence of being involved in an accident is residual fear.

    If you are fearful, you are not alone

    Fear is a very real cognitive – that is, emotional – response to an unpleasant situation. It is our brain’s way of protecting us from being placed back in the same situation in which we were hurt.

    What you can do

    • Get medical help!

    We are often afraid to admit we are struggling, especially with an emotional response such as fear. It is a recognised condition left over from a traumatic incident. It can be life-changing, with devastating impacts on everyday life. Many injury lawyers in Witney will tell you that they have dealt with many clients seeking compensation who have included fear or their deep-seated emotional reaction to their accident and injuries sustained

    • Speak to Accident Advice Helpline

    Injury lawyers in Witney will tell you many of their previous clients have needed counselling, a recognised intervention to change how we think or feel about something. This service in the NHS is under pressure, so waiting times for appointments can be many weeks.

    Opting for private counselling sessions is one option, but it can cost a lot. Fear is rarely dissolved completely, but lessened to such a degree that it becomes manageable and easier to live with. However, this can take several sessions with a qualified counsellor.

    Did you know you can claim compensation for your fear?

    Compensation, as your injury lawyers in Witney will talk through in detail with you, can cover physical and emotional injuries. For example, if you received a broken limb in an accident you can include this on your compensation claim, but you may also have suffered other difficulties such as being unable to sleep, suffering insomnia or other issues.

    If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. To find out more, as well as the possibility of being put in touch with specialist injury lawyers in Witney, why not call us here at Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500? Our helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days of the week, so you can call at a time convenient for you.
