After a crime or an accident
Being involved in an accident or being a victim of a crime may result in the need for help, support and advice. Offences should be reported to the police. The victim of a crime has the right to receive the necessary assistance and legal support.
Crisis help is usually organised immediately after a major accident. In addition to health care services, an individual who has been in an accident can obtain help from telephone helplines, mental health professionals and, for example, the Church. In addition to mental support, the victim may need help with legal matters. This is available from legal aid and law offices, for example.
In Finland, the Accident Investigation Board investigates all major aviation, rail and maritime accidents as well as any dangerous situations arising from these.
