    Receiving a facial injury assessment after a fall


    One of the more serious accidents anyone could suffer from is a fall. This is particularly true if you were to have a fall from height. The further a person falls, the greater the chance is of suffering serious injuries. However, even a fall on a level surface could result in the injured person undergoing a facial injury assessment.

    Facial injuries from a fall can happen if you fall from height, or if you are unable to break your fall, perhaps while tripping over a raised paving stone, for example. Such a trip can happen very quickly, and if you are carrying things, or you are unable to get your hands out in front of you in time, it would be very easy to hit your face on the ground. This would cause a great deal of pain, not to mention the potential for lacerations and broken bones.

    How can a facial injury assessment help you in your recovery?

    A proper medical assessment of this type can help the medics assess your injuries, and figure out the best way to treat them. It can also help them work out the best way to identify these injuries. For example, if your face has been lacerated in several places, this may require sutures or glue to hold the skin together. The option chosen would depend on how bad and how deep the lacerations are. This would be decided with the help of the original assessment.

    Conversely, if broken bones are suspected, chances are you would receive an x-ray to assess the extent of the damage to the underlying bone. In some instances, surgery might be required to fix serious breaks, particularly if bones have been moved out of place. However, this wouldn’t be required in all cases.

    Could you claim compensation for your accident?

    You can find out for certain by contacting a personal injury lawyer, and this does not have to be difficult to do. In fact, you will shortly realise it is very easy, and it could be the first step towards receiving compensation for what happened to you.
