Injuries to facial nerves are not an uncommon side effect of facial trauma. You could hit your face on the steering wheel in a car accident or suffer serious lacerations after hitting your face on an object when you slip or trip and fall. If you have suffered an injury to your facial nerve then you may experience a range of different symptoms, and you may need to seek medical attention for facial nerve injury treatment. With this type of treatment, there are often no guarantees, and if somebody else was liable for your accident, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a personal injury claim. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident, you can get in touch with us today.
What type of facial nerve injury treatment is possible?
Many doctors take a ‘wait and see’ approach when it comes to facial nerve injury treatment. This is because a facial nerve injury can be unpredictable at the best of times. Things may improve, stay the same, or get worse, and often the only way to see whether or not further treatment will be needed is to wait and see. If you have suffered an injury to your facial nerve, you may experience difficulties eating and drinking or speaking clearly. You may be unable to blink or close your eyes properly, and doctors can prescribe eye drops, to prevent damage to the cornea.
You may even find that you suffer from loss of expression if you have suffered facial paralysis. Facial nerve injuries can vary in severity, but in some cases, surgery may be an option to repair the damaged nerve. For any facial nerve injury, it is important to seek medical advice from a medical professional, to ensure you get the treatment you need.
Will my compensation claim be successful?
If your accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence and you have suffered an injury to your facial nerve as a result, you could find you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. This could be the case if you’ve been injured in an industrial accident at work, or even if you have suffered injuries in a road traffic accident. Of course, there are no guarantees your claim will be successful, but Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis.
