Have you suffered a cheekbone fracture after a fall at work or a car accident? Cheekbone fractures can be incredibly painful and debilitating, but the good news is that most heal without complications. If you’ve suffered a broken cheekbone, chances are that you may have also sustained other facial or head injuries such as eye, nose or head/brain injuries. Claiming broken cheekbone compensation could be a possibility, provided somebody else is to blame for your accident and it has been three years or less since your accident occurred. Accident Advice Helpline could help you get the compensation you deserve on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Healing from a broken cheekbone
The most common causes of a cheekbone fracture are car accidents, a blow to the face or a fall, and you’d be surprised how common this injury is. Your broken bones will need to be realigned and sometimes surgery is necessary to do this. The time taken to heal from a cheekbone fracture varies greatly and will depend on the severity of the fracture and any other facial injuries you have also suffered. Swelling and bruising will usually take between 2 to 3 weeks to subside, but you could be off work for much longer.
In some cases, facial injuries can cause short-term facial pain, altered sensation and numbness. This can take weeks or months to disappear and in rare cases you may be affected by permanent numbness or altered sensation. When you make a claim for broken cheekbone compensation, we’ll take into account any long-term or permanent damage suffered which could affect your quality of life in future, as well as any loss of earnings from time off work. You could find out right now how much compensation you could be entitled to by taking the 30-second test on our website.
