    Injury claim in Symonds Yat

    Suffered a facial trauma and need to make an injury claim in Symonds Yat?

    What is a facial injury?

    Facial injury is defined as any injury to the face which includes the upper jaw, lower jaw, cheek, nose or forehead.  

    Facial injuries may be caused by:

    1. Road traffic accidents as a driver, passenger or pedestrian
    2. Injury which penetrates the facial area
    3. Work related accident

    Symptoms of a facial injury

    The symptoms of facial injury can be extremely painful, debilitating and lead to serious facial deformity which may require surgery.

    • Loss of sensation over the facial area
    • Deformed or uneven face
    • Problems with vision such as double vision or partial vision
    • Dental problems such as broken, loose or missing teeth
    • Eye problems including swelling around the eye socket
    • Problems with breathing as a result of swelling to the nasal passages
    • Nasal bleeding and bruising

    Seeking medical assistance

    It is vital that the injured person seeks medical assistance as soon as possible to reduce the risk of further complications developing or the condition worsening.

    A medical practitioner may carry out a physical examination locating:

    6. Abnormal sensations on the cheek indicating that there may be a fracture
    7. Movement of the upper jaw when the head is still indicating that there may be a fracture

    Treating a facial injury

    Whilst the treatment for a facial injury is to restore function and reduce the risk of significant deformity, the immediate goals of treatment are:

    • Create a clear airway to avoid respiratory arrest
    • Control bleeding to reduce the risk of haemorrhage
    • Locate and repair broken bones with titanium plates and screws to reduce the risk of deformity
    • Reduce scarring
    • Observe and treat any other injuries
