    How to claim fractured jaw compensation


    Think of a fracture and you probably think of a fractured finger, arm or leg, or even a toe. The jaw is probably one of the last bones in the body you’d think of, and yet you can fracture this just as easily as you could any other bone in your body.

    People sometimes fracture their jaw if they are involved in some kind of accident that involves a blow to the face. The injury may also happen in cases where someone experiences a fall. It doesn’t have to be a fall from a significant height either. If they land awkwardly this can be all it takes to cause the fracture to occur.

    How did the accident happen?

    While you are attending A&E to receive treatment for your jaw injury, and to confirm it is broken, you may wonder how you came to be there. Was someone else ultimately responsible for your injury? This is an important question to ask because if someone else’s negligence led to the injury taking place, you have a good chance of trying to seek fractured jaw compensation.

    As with all other successful compensation claims, the payout that is given will depend on how serious the injury was. Elements such as the amount of pain the person went through, the severity of the injury and how much treatment was required to resolve the problem will be taken into account. Furthermore the outcome of the injury and subsequent treatment will be considered too. If someone is left with ongoing pain, the payout will be greater than if the injury was completely resolved. However even in this latter case, fractured jaw compensation can vary depending on the length of time it took for the injury to properly resolve itself.

    Finding out how to claim

    If you’ve suffered from a broken jaw within the last three years, you should think about whether you have a chance to make such a claim. Even if you are unsure of the facts, make sure you contact Accident Advice Helpline for more details.
