Road traffic accident in Bishopbriggs
Facial injuries from a road traffic accident in Bishopbriggs can be anywhere from your forehead to your chin, and can include:
- Bones in the face
- The soft tissues of the face
It is often automatically assumed that a facial injury is some sort of disfigurement or scarring but it is more likely to be a broken bone of some sort.
Broken bones in your face after a road traffic accident in Bishopbriggs
There are several bones that could break in your face, some of them having other effects, such as:
- A broken bone in your nose, as well as making your nose look deformed, can cause breathing difficulties.
- Bones broken around the eye can mean that the eye is pushed back further than it should be. If this causes the retina to become detached, it can affect the sight, sometimes causing blindness.
- Broken jawbones can make the face look twisted and cause trouble eating and talking.
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you sustain any face injury from a road traffic accident or any other type of accident that was not your fault, which happened within the last three years.
The mental effects of a facial injury
Disfigurement or scarring can have devastating mental effects for the victim, they can be very embarrassed about their appearance and lose their social skills because of difficulty interacting with other people.
Females are usually more affected in this way than males and generally, particularly with scarring, receive higher compensation awards than men. Males who rely on their face for their profession would be awarded a similar amount, but generally, our society is more concerned with the looks of a female than we are of a male.
