    Do you require a face injury mask because of an accident?


    Few people who receive facial injuries in an accident would be required to wear a face injury mask. However, there are cases where this might be necessary. For example, if you have received significant burns to your face, a mask can be worn to help protect the skin as it begins to heal.

    Other examples where such a mask might be useful are situations where there has been an unstable fracture to some part of the face. Another example might include serious lacerations to the face, which should be protected from the elements, and from foreign bodies such as dirt, while they start to heal.

    Taking proper advice

    If you receive any injuries to your face in an accident, it is always a good idea to get them checked out as quickly as possible. This is because early treatment can help prevent the scarring from being too pronounced, and in some instances, may prevent any visible scarring at all. It is likely you may need to be treated for other injuries, particularly if you were in a car accident, for example, so your facial injuries can be treated at the same time.

    You will likely feel self-conscious wearing a mask if you are required to wear one, but you should remember you are giving your body the best chance at healing as best it can in this situation.

    Could you make a claim for needing to wear a face injury mask?

    A face injury mask can help you recover and heal after suffering nasty facial injuries. However, as you go through the recovery process, you might wonder whether you could make a claim to receive compensation for the original accident, and the injuries stemming from it.
