Have you been in an accident and suffered facial injuries? Make a claim with an injury lawyer in Pathhead
Facial injuries are particularly distressing and difficult to overcome because the face is an intrinsic and recognisable part of our identity and form an integral part of who we are. Whilst any injuries can be upsetting, a facial injury can be especially traumatic for the person who is injured as it can have long lasting physical, emotional, and psychological effects that may be life long.
Facial injuries are defined as any injury to the upper jaw, lower jaw, cheek, nose, chin or forehead. Whilst any accident can cause a facial injury, serious injuries are more likely to be caused by:
- a road traffic accident
- an injury where the facial area is penetrated by a sharp or heavy object
- a violent assault
- a chemical assault using acid
Facial injuries can result in changes in sensation over the face and result in a deformed or uneven texture to the facial area due to broken or fractured bones. If acid has been used in an attack, then breathing through the nose may be difficult due to swelling and bleeding. Vision may also be affected and the casualty may experience partial or total loss of vision, double vision or focusing problems due to swelling around the eye socket. Dental injuries may also be sustained particularly following an assault or penetrative injury when teeth may become loose or broken.
