- Impaired vision, even blindness
- Broken bones in the cheeks, nose, jaw or eye sockets
- Deafness or impaired hearing
- Damaged teeth.
If you have any of the above, or an injury of any other sort caused by someone else, you should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury compensation claim.
The effects of a facial injury
Because the results of a facial injury can be so visual to others, often victims find their injuries embarrassing. It can affect victims’ social skills, sometimes leading to depression and anxiety.
Women are usually more affected in this way than men, and generally, particularly with scarring, receive higher compensation awards. The men that rely on their looks for their living, such as male models or actors, are likely to be awarded a similar amount to a woman.
How compensation can help
Any personal injuries can be life changing for the innocent victim, and there are things that can help to make life a little easier, but sometimes they have to be paid for. The compensation is meant to help with these expenses, and is awarded in recognition that you may have to alter your lifestyle to cope with the injuries.

- A hearing aid
