Have you sustained a serious facial injury? Then you may be eligible for personal injury compensation. Speak to injury solicitors Great Torrington or another legal firm to get help claiming.
Facial injuries can often have serious and long term consequences for the victim. The facial area is synonymous with individuality and recognition, so when this becomes injured as the result of a trauma, then it can have considerable physical, emotional and psychological effects.
A facial injury is defined as any trauma to the face including the:
- Lower jaw
- Upper jaw
Causes of facial trauma
Facial injury can be caused by:
- Road traffic accidents
- Chemical accidents
- Acid attacks
- Industrial accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slips, trips or falls
Facial injuries can also cause problems with sensory responses, as the face is the centre of the senses of sight, sound, touch and taste. Serious facial trauma can mean that the casualty will suffer a degree of facial unevenness or deformity. Scarring may be an additional complication that can result in a decrease in sensitivity or a loss of feeling over the face.
If burns have been sustained, then these will require treatment from a specialist burns unit to ensure that scarring is reduced and infection is avoided. Skin grafts may be required to promote long term healing and protection.
If facial bones have been broken or fractured, then they may require surgical intervention using titanium screws, plates and wires to stabilise the bones and re-build features to allow function and movement.
The primary aims of emergency treatment of facial injuries are:
- To keep the airway open
- To control any bleeding
- To reduce the risk of infection
- To repair broken and fractured bones
