You’ve suffered facial injuries. It wasn’t your fault. You need to claim with injury experts in St Blazey.
Facial injury is defined as any injury to the facial area, which includes:
- Lower jaw; and
- Upper jaw.
Facial injuries can be particularly painful and cause lifelong physical and psychological effects on the casualty. As the facial area is usually the main area of recognition and identity, any damage can result in deformity or scarring which may irreversibly alter the facial features of the casualty and cause the victim untold stress and anxiety.
Symptoms of facial injury
Facial injuries can cause:
- Pain and discomfort to the face;
- Changes in sensation over the facial area;
- Difficulty with vision due to swelling and bleeding;
- Breathing problems if the nose is affected;
- Deformity to the face due to broken or fractured bones;
- Bleeding and lacerations; and
- Dental problems such as loose, missing or broken teeth.
Causes of facial injury
Facial injury can be caused by many different types of accident or incident:
- Penetrative injury to the face;
- Road traffic accident;
- Chemical attack on the face, for example with acidic compounds;
- Violent assault to the facial area;
- Trauma due to falling from a height; and
- Sporting injury through a high contact game such as boxing or rugby.
Seeking medical assistance
It is imperative that the casualty seeks urgent medical assistance in order to diagnose, treat and rule out further injuries. The primary aims of treatment are to:
- Control any bleeding;
- Keep the airway clear and ensure breathing is adequate;
- Treat broken or fractured bones using surgical intervention with titanium plates and screws;
- Reduce the risk of scarring; and
- Reduce the risk of infection developing.
