Suffered a painful facial injury? Call the lawyers in Windlesham to start your claim
All accidents can result in distressing and painful injuries, both physically and emotionally as the body recovers and begins the healing process. However, if you have suffered a severe facial trauma, then this can mean that you may have to endure countless surgical procedures and skin grafts in order to re-build your facial features. The psychological effects of disfigurement can leave emotional scars that may take a lifetime to overcome. The face is the most recognisable part of our identity and when it is injured, we may feel robbed of our individuality.

Overcoming facial injury
The physical effects of a facial injury are treated by specialist surgeons who use titanium screws and plates to rebuild fractured bones in the nose and jaw. This technique enables the body to recover quicker and reduce the effects of scarring from multiple operations. However, if the tissue has been burnt, then skin grafts may be required to allow the body to heal without the risk of infections developing.
The emotional effects of a facial injury may take longer to overcome and the casualty may need professional support to enable them to be able to come to terms with what they have gone through. This may be an ongoing process lasting months after the accident has occurred.
There may also be psychological effects on the patient if the accident was traumatic and has had a severe impact on their life. They may require counselling for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and anxiety caused by the accident.
