Facial injuries, particularly disfigament, can cause untold stress to the injured party. Even the most extrovert of people can become a recluse because they do not want anyone to see them. If you sustain a facial injury through no fault of your own, our law firm covering North Yorkshire can help you claim compensation.
Facial injury claims that our law firm covering North Yorkshire can help with
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 can happen. Any injury from the forehead to the chin is classed as a facial injury, and this could be:
- Broken bones. There are several bones in the face that can break and if they do, create other problems. A broken jawbone can make it difficult to eat and talk and a broken nose can result in breathing difficulties.
- Sight can be affected, sometimes blindness occurs.
- Damage to the teeth can be worse than it sounds. Victims can stop smiling because they do not want people to see how awful their teeth look.
- Disfigament or scarring is the most visually obvious facial injury and is likely to cause more stress because of this.
Women are usually awarded more compensation. If in the case of a man, his face is important to his job, such as actors or male models, they would be awarded a similar amount to a woman.
It does not matter what your facial injury is, if someone else caused it, our law firm in North Yorkshire may be able to help you with a personal injury claim.
