Mouth and lip injuries can be particularly painful, inconvenient and difficult to come to terms with. If you end up with scars because of your injuries you may feel very self-conscious about them. An accident could end up changing your life – and not in a good way either.
Injuries of this nature can happen in all kinds of ways. You could be at work in a factory and something could fly up and hit you in the mouth, causing cuts and bruises as a result. You might be in a restaurant when you walk from your table to pay and slip over in a spillage. This could easily lead you to hit your face on the floor or on the edge of a table, damaging your teeth or splitting your lip in the process. Similarly you could be walking or driving to work when you are involved in an accident with another vehicle. Broken glass can easily cause damage, as can twisted wreckage in a bad accident.
Is it possible to be compensated for mouth and lip injuries?
For this to be a possibility, you must be able to prove someone else caused the accident to happen. For example, at work someone should have been negligent in some manner. Perhaps your employer did not provide appropriate safety equipment that could have protected you, for example.
In the case of a car accident, another driver should have caused the accident to occur. Their inaction, inability to drive according to the Highway Code or some other reason should have led to the accident occurring, and therefore, injuring you in the process.
