Losing your front teeth in an accident can leave you having to face some painful dental work to repair the damage, and may end up with you having to have some false teeth at the front. Losing your front teeth, doesn’t just affect the way you look, it also changes the way you speak and can cause problems eating. It is no surprise that innocent accident victims sometimes wonder should they make an injury claim – how much for front teeth being knocked out.
But the consequences of this sort of injury can be far more damaging to the self esteem, which for some people can be worse than the visits to the dentist. In fact the same applies to all facial injuries, particularly if the injury leaves scars.
Just imagine for a moment that you earn your living as a photographic model, or maybe as an actress. If you have any work coming up in the few weeks following losing you teeth, and are unable to complete the job, your entire career could be affected.
It is generally thought that women are far more affected emotionally by this sort of injury, as we live in a society where a women looks are considered to be more important than a mans. For this reason, women tend to receive higher awards than men for any type of facial injury. That is unless the man is a male model, an actor or has some other job where his looks are very important, and then he would be awarded a similar amount to a woman.
