Any type of injury sustained in an accident that was not your fault is traumatic, but facial injuries can be more so because they can be so obvious. Even the courts award women more in compensation if their face is disfigured, than they would to a man. This is because generally society is more aware of the looks of women than men, so it is likely to cause women more stress. If a male that relies on his face for his job and makes personal injury claims, they are likely to be awarded a similar amount as a woman. Maybe you’ve had a motorbike accident in West Yorkshire? Whatever the case, we can help.

Although the scarring is the obvious thing when people mention facial injuries, any injury from your forehead to your chin could be described as a facial injury. This could be bones broken in your face, damage to your teeth or damage to your eyes or ears.
Whichever it is, if your facial injury was caused by someone else, you should be looking at making personal injury claims in West Yorkshire.
