Claiming compensation for facial injuries
A facial injury that involves scarring or disfigurement can be very upsetting and distressing for the victim. Because they are so visible they can cause an untold amount of trauma, making the victim feel too self conscious to go about normal social activities. Even the most extrovert of victims can become an introvert after suffering a facial injury, changing their lifestyle completely. If the cause of the facial injury was an accident that was not their fault, they may want to speak with an injury lawyer in Tenby about claiming compensation.
How an injury lawyer in Tenby can help
If you sustain this type of injury in an accident that was not your own fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim, and an injury lawyer in Tenby at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with this.
Depending on the severity of the injury, there may be treatments that can help, such as plastic surgery. This might not get rid of the problem totally, but can reduce its effects and make life a little easier for the victim. Some of these treatments are not available on the NHS, and this would be taken into account when making a compensation claim. If you need private treatment, whoever was responsible should pay for it.
Other facial injuries
There are many other facial injuries apart from scarring and disfigurement. Broken jaw bones, or nose bones, eye injuries, ear injuries, dental problems, they can all come under the heading of facial injury.
If your sight or hearing becomes impaired because of an accident that was not your fault, it could result in you no longer being able to do the same job, or not being able to drive any more. Although glasses and hearing aids may help to some extent, you could still find you have to alter your life to cope with these type of injuries.
Broken bones in your face can initially cause problems like breathing difficulties, or trouble eating and talking, but can also cause the face to look deformed. Surgery to put the facial bones back in shape is usually very successful, but sometimes, there is permanent disfigurement.
