    All accidents and any resulting injuries can be distressing for everyone concerned. However, when the facial area is injured it can be devastating for the casualty and hard to come to terms with physically, emotionally and psychologically. 

    Facial injuries are defined as any injury which occurs to the facial area including:

    • The lower jaw;
    • The upper jaw;
    • The cheeks;
    • The forehead;
    • The nose; or
    • The chin.

    Any accident can result in an injury being sustained to the facial area, but some types of accident can cause serious facial trauma, including:

    • Road traffic accidents;
    • Chemical attack to the face using acid;
    • Penetrative injury to the face;
    • Violent assault; and
