    Compensation for serious facial injuries

    The chances are pretty good that you will have tripped over at some stage in your life. We all do it, and it can be an embarrassing experience. However, in some instances we might trip and not be able to catch ourselves, suffering a fall in the process. When this occurs we might end up suffering serious facial injuries, especially if we are unable to break our fall with our hands.

    When this type of accident occurs it is a good idea to determine what happened. You should of course get medical assistance to treat your injuries so they can begin to recover and heal. However, you should also consider getting legal advice to determine whether anything could have been done to prevent the injuries occurring in the first place.

    How serious can injuries of this nature be?

    The elderly are particularly at risk of serious facial injuries from falls, but in reality anyone can suffer them if the fall happens quickly and the individual is unable to save themselves. Black eyes, a broken nose, cuts and bruises can all happen in the wrong circumstances, especially when you consider you will very likely hit the pavement or another hard surface that is very unforgiving to skin and bone.

    Companies such as Accident Advice Helpline can help get the facts of what happened to find out whether the accident could have been prevented. For example if it is discovered that a paving stone was significantly proud of the others around it, this could provide a serious tripping hazard that could potentially have been fixed so it did not sit proud.

    Recovering from the injuries

    The medical treatment you receive when you suffer such injuries will determine how they will heal. Medical personnel can determine the nature of your injuries and then provide the best course of medical care in order to ensure they heal. This might include stitches and possibly surgery in the more severe cases.
