Facial injuries can be the result of a number of accidents. Common causes of facial injury include slips, trips and falls, road traffic accidents and criminal injury incidents.
Facial injuries range from the minor to the extremely severe. Of course the severity of the injuries will determine and impact upon the amount of compensation a person is awarded.
Depending on the severity of the accident, the symptoms of facial injuries can include:
- Changes in facial sensation
- Misshapen facial bones or uneven face
- Double vision
- Missing teeth
- Difficulty breathing through the nose due to swelling of nasal passages and bleeding
- Swelling around the eyes that may cause problems with vision
When an accident has caused facial injuries a medical practitioner will conduct a physical examination and carry out some routine tests which may indicate:
- Facial lacerations in the skin
- Bleeding from the nose, eyes, mouth or nasal blockage due to swelling
- Bruising to the eye socket or widening of the distance between the eyes which may indicate damage to bones between the eye sockets
- Abnormal sensations on the cheek indicating bone fractures
- When the head is still, the upper jaw may still move indicating bone fractures
- Conduct a CT scan to indicate any internal injuries
If the symptoms indicate that facial injuries are severe and there may be fractures to facial bones, then surgery may be needed to avoid facial deformity. Initially, treatment is carried out to control bleeding and create a clear airway to reduce the risk of further conditions developing. Surgery may involve inserting titanium plates and screws to fix broken bones and ensure that facial deformity is avoided.
