Victims of facial injuries are often more embarrassed by them than they are in physical pain, particularly if there are scars to the face for everyone to see. Our courts recognise this and the fact that it is probably worse for a woman, so when facial accident claims in Leicester are made, they normally ward a woman more than they would a man.
Some men whose jobs depend on their face will be awarded a similar amount to a women, but there are some men who think it makes them look ‘hard’, and quite like their scars. That is fine, everyone has to cope with this sort of injury in their own way, but whichever way they view it, they are all entitled to compensation if it was someone else who caused the accident in which they sustained their facial injury.

No all facial injuries are disfiguring, any injury from the top of you head to your chin is classed as a facial injury, and this could be:
- Broken bones
- Loss or damage to teeth
- Your sight affected, maybe blindness
- Loss of hearing
The problem with some of these facial injuries is that they can have secondary effects that can make life very uncomfortable. A broken nose can cause breathing problems, and a broken jaw bone can cause difficulty eating and talking. Impaired sight or hearing create problems of their own, and although damaged teeth are repairable or replaceable, there can still be much pain to go through to put them right.
No innocent victims should have to go through this trauma, which is why if someone else caused it they should claim compensation.
