Facial injury claim in Market Harborough
Many accidents can result in a facial injury and these can be life changing, often resulting in a facial injury claim in Market Harborough.
The main types of facial injury that may result in an injury claim in Market Harborough
There are numerous injuries that could affect your face, but generally they are one of four main types, such as:
- Fractured bone. This can vary, as there are several bones in the face. A broken jawbone can create eating and speech difficulties, while a broken nose can create breathing problems. Some broken bones could cause a deformity of facial features.
- Damage to the teeth is often overlooked as a facial injury, but loosing teeth in an accident can put the victim through a lot of pain and expense to have them replaced with prosthetic teeth.
- Disfigurement or scarring is the most obvious facial injury. The compensation awards for this will be greater for a woman than a man, because generally women are considered to be more concerned about their looks. Male actors and models are examples of people who might be awarded a similar amount as a woman.
- The eyes can be damaged and sight affected. Sometimes blindness can happen as a result of a facial injury.
If any of the above happens to you, it might be time to make an injury claim in Market Harborough.
