Any injury sustained in an accident can be traumatic for the victim, but facial injuries can be extremely distressing as they may be so obvious. If your face is injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, using injury lawyers in St Peters.
Injury lawyers in St Peters explain why women get more
Courts tend to award women more in compensation if their face is disfigured in an accident than they would to a man. This is because generally women are 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 make their personal injury compensation claim, with the help of injury lawyers in St Peters.
There are other types of facial injury
Disfigurement is what most people think of when you say a facial injury, but there other ways to injure your face, such as:
- A fractured nose bone as well as giving a twisted appearance can cause breathing difficulties.

- The eyes can be easily damaged in an accident and the sight affected. Sometimes this can even lead to blindness.
