    Injury claim in Puddletown

    Injury claim in Puddletown

    Do you need to make an injury claim in Puddletown for a facial injury?

    Facial injuries occur when there is any injury to the face or upper jaw bone, also known as the maxilla.

    Causes of facial injuries

    There are many causes of facial injuries, which can occur as a result of trauma to the head and face. These include:

    • Road traffic accidents;
    • Assault and violence;
    • Penetrating injuries; and
    • Dental injuries.

    Symptoms of facial injuries

    • Face appears deformed, swollen or uneven;
    • Breathing problems through the nasal passages due to blockage or swelling;
    • Double vision or blurred vision;
    • Teeth missing or loose;
    • Swelling to eye socket area;
    • Abnormal sensation in the facial area, such as the cheek;
    • Bruising around the face;
    • Bleeding from nose, mouth, eyes and ears;
    • Abnormal movement in upper jaw; and
    • Difficulty eating and talking.

    In the cases of scarring and disfigurement, a woman will be awarded more than a man because it is felt that women will suffer more stress over such an obvious injury. However, male models and actors would be awarded a similar amount to that of a woman.

    Treatment for facial injuries

    The primary treatment for a facial injury is to ensure that there are no life threatening injuries or neck fractures, which may be diagnosed with a CT scan. Then, it is important to control any bleeding and ensure that a clear airway is created. Broken or fractured bones will need to surgically fixed with titanium plates and screws to ensure that scarring is kept to a minimum.

    Some victims of facial injuries suffer complications after the accident, which may include:
