Had a facial injury and unsure if you can make an injury claim? Ask for help!
So, what is a facial injury? A facial injury is defined as any injury that occurs to the forehead, upper jaw, lower jaw, nose or cheeks. Injuries to the face can be sustained through:
- Road traffic accidents
- Penetrating injuries
- Violent assaults
The symptoms of a facial injury can be physically very painful and can cause considerable emotional and psychological trauma.
- Changes in the sensation over the face
- Deformed or uneven facial bones
- Difficulty breathing through the nose due to bleeding and swelling
- Dental problems
- Vision problems
- Scarring and disfigurement
Seeking help for facial trauma
As with any accident that results in a facial injury, rapid medical attention is recommended as this can ensure that further injuries and internal bleeding are brought under control and treated before the casualty deteriorates. The primary role of treatment is to control the bleeding and ensure that a clear airway is maintained. By undertaking a thorough medical examination, any facial bone fractures can be diagnosed and treated using surgical intervention. Broken facial bones may be treated with surgery using titanium plates and screws to reduce the risk of future operations and increase the risk of scarring.
