    How to claim mouth injuries compensation


    Mouth injuries compensation can potentially be granted in cases where someone suffers some kind of injury to their mouth. This might involve the tongue, the teeth, the lips or the inside of the mouth, or more than one of these. The injury should not be self-inflicted of course, and it should not be the result of a simple accident either. For a compensation claim to meet with success, the incident should have been the result of someone else being negligent.

    Negligence can potentially occur in numerous different ways. For example there could be an accident at work that was caused by a lack of health and safety. On the other hand someone may have been negligent in driving a vehicle that hit you, causing you to suffer mouth injuries (and possibly other injuries as well).

    How much might be paid in mouth injuries compensation?

    This is a common-enough question but the answer can vary depending on the damage you have experienced. Long-term injuries may incur a greater amount of compensation than ones that will fully resolve and heal themselves with no ill-effects. Similarly you might end up with scarring that you will have to live with for the rest of your life.

    Compensation can also vary depending on whether the injuries are visible. Scarring to the inside of the mouth wouldn’t be seen, but scars to the lips would be. Similarly the loss of front teeth might incur a greater sum in compensation than the loss of back teeth, simply because they are visible.

    Why should you get expert advice?

    A professional injury compensation lawyer will have the experience to assess your injuries and how they occurred. They will also be able to advise you of whether you could prove negligence led to your injuries occurring to begin with.
