Facial injuries may mean you want to use an injury claims lawyer in Lochinver
One of the more obvious injuries is scarring to the face, something the courts award women more in compensation if their face is disfigured than they would to a man. This is because women are thought to be more aware of their looks than men, so it is likely to cause them more stress. The other people that would be awarded a higher amount are male models and male actors when they use their injury lawyer in Lochinver.
The other facial injuries
Disfigament is what most people think of when you say a facial injury, but there other ways to injure your face, such as:
- Fractured bones. There are many bones in the face that could be broken. Cheek bones, eye socket bones, jawbones, nose bones are just a few. Some of these breaks can cause secondary problems such as breathing difficulties with a broken nose or eating difficulties with a broken jaw.
- The eyes can be easily damaged in an accident and the sight affected. Sometimes this can even lead to blindness.
- Correcting damaged teeth can put you through lots of pain, suffering and stress. You may also lose your own teeth and have to replace them with false ones.
If any of these injuries, or any other injuries, happen to you because of an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to use an injury lawyer in Lochinver.
