    • Changes in facial sensation
    • Misshapen facial bones or uneven face
    • Double vision
    • Missing teeth
    • Difficulty breathing through the nose due to swelling of nasal passages and bleeding
    • Swelling around the eyes that may cause problems with vision

    When an accident has caused facial injuries a medical practitioner will conduct a physical examination and carry out some routine tests which may indicate:

    • Facial lacerations in the skin
    • Bleeding from the nose, eyes, mouth or nasal blockage due to swelling
    • Bruising to the eye socket or widening of the distance between the eyes which may indicate damage to bones between the eye sockets
    • Abnormal sensations on the cheek indicating bone fractures
    • When the head is still, the upper jaw may still move indicating bone fractures
    • Conduct a CT scan to indicate any internal injuries

    If the symptoms indicate that facial injuries are severe and there may be fractures to facial bones, then surgery may be needed to avoid facial deformity.  Initially, treatment is carried out to control bleeding and create a clear airway to reduce the risk of further conditions developing.  Surgery may involve inserting titanium plates and screws to fix broken bones and ensure that facial deformity is avoided.

    If you have suffered a facial injury as a direct result of an accident that wasn’t your own fault then please contact the accident lawyer from Coleshill team at Accident Advice Helpline on our twenty four hour free phone helpline.  Call 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile
