Help available after a public transport accident in Solihull
Whether you’ve been deeply affected by your accident or you’re facing financial difficulty, there are many options available to you when it comes to help following your accident, including:
Medical help and advice
Your doctor should be the first person you speak to following an accident; they will be able to advise you on the best way to care for your injuries. Obtaining medical proof of your injuries will be essential for making a claim for compensation, and your doctor will also be able to provide advice on the best way to treat injuries such as whiplash, which is one of the most common public transport injuries,
Counselling or therapy
The thought of being close to death or suffering a severe injury can make a person anxious, have difficulty sleeping and suffer from stressed. Talking to a counsellor or a therapist could help you to talk through your feelings and help you find some peace following your accident. Your friends or family can also lend an ear if you’d rather discuss your feelings with someone who is close to you.

Compensation can help to recover any costs or expenses you’ve been faced with as a result of your injury.
