If you have suffered a facial or head injury then you could also have suffered a facial artery injury which has the potential to be serious. The facial artery (external maxillary artery) supplies blood to the muscles and tissues of the face, and if you suffer an injury to this artery then parts of your face can be affected. You may need to undergo surgery or other treatment in hospital to prevent the risk of further bleeding, and recovery from a facial artery injury can be slow. If your accident was caused by somebody else – for example if you were driving and another car ran a red light and hit your vehicle – then Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a claim for personal injury compensation.
How has your facial artery injury affected your life?
A facial artery injury is often suffered in conjunction with a skull fracture or other fractures to the head or face, which means that the recovery period can be slow. You may even have suffered brain damage if you sustained a depressed or open skull fracture, and this can impact your whole future. The severity of your injuries and their impact on your life will determine how much personal injury compensation you could be entitled to receive and the best way to get an idea of what this could be is to take the 30-second test on our website. You could be compensated for current and future loss of earnings as well as the cost of medical care and treatment both now and in the future, depending on how severe your facial injuries are.
