    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Injury solicitors in Dorset


    Victims that sustain facial injuries often suffer more stress than a lot of other injuries because they are so visual and this can be a real problem for them if they have been disfigured in some way.  If the injury has occurred in an accident that was not their fault, they may be entitled to use injury solicitors in Dorset to make a personal injury compensation claim.  The money awarded may mean they can afford plastic surgery to reduce the visibility of any scarring they may have.

    The other facial injuries that injury solicitors in Dorset come across

    When someone mentions a facial injury, most people immediately think of nasty scarring or something similar, but there are many types of facial injuries that would cause you to use injury solicitors in Dorset to make a claim, just a few of them are:

    • A fractured jaw bone – as well as being painful this can cause problem with eating and talking and may well need wiring back in place
    • A fractured nose bone – this can be quite dangerous as it can impair the breathing capabilities of the victim
    • The eye sockets – these can be damaged and depending on the severity of the injury, could well affect the sight of the victim
    • Damage to the teeth – this is often not thought of as a facial injury but the pain a victim may have to go through to have them repaired or replaced with false ones can be distressing

    Quite often with facial injuries, women receive a higher award than men.  This is because it is thought that women will suffer a higher degree of stress under these circumstances but if the mans face is important to his job, such as a male models or actors, they would be awarded a similar amount as a woman.

    If your face has sustained any injury at all in an accident that was not your fault, providing the injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened no more than 3 years ago, you would be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
