If you consider all the injuries you might potentially incur in an accident – regardless of what that accident is – which ones do you think might be among the hardest to cope with? Many would say facial injuries are among the most difficult, because they can cause significant emotional effects as well as affecting you physically. Some people with these injuries end up using face injury makeup to help mask the injuries they suffered.
Scars do fade, so we are told. But in some instances, they cannot fade enough to be unnoticed by the injured person or by others. Some people achieve good results when using face injury makeup to mask those injuries, but they are still there, underneath, and this can be hard to deal with.
Is it worth using face injury makeup?
Some people do feel much better by using makeup, but needing to put it on every day is a stark reminder of what happened to them. If you have facial injuries and you were responsible for the accident that led to them, they would be hard to deal with. Yet if a third party had caused your injuries by being responsible for your accident, it would surely be harder still to cope.
If you are in this situation and you are struggling to come to terms with what happened to you, do speak to your GP. They should be able to recommend counselling that can help enormously in situations like these.
What about learning more regarding compensation claims?
Some people immediately wonder if they could claim compensation if they are on the receiving end of an accident caused by someone else. Others only consider this much later. However, you do have three years in which you must make a claim if you are going to do so, so if you are going to find out more, you should contact our team as quickly as possible.
Accident Advice Helpline has been able to help people make claims in the past when they have needed face injury makeup following an accident. You too can call us on 0800 689 0500 (or on 0333 500 0993 from your mobile) if you believe there is a chance you could make a claim with our help. We provide no-obligation advice and that means you’re not required to go further if you could claim.
