No matter where you live in the UK, if you have a road accident in Scarborough, or any other accident, that was not your own fault and as a result you end up with a facial injury, then you should make a compensation claim, using an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline.
After a road accident in Scarborough, an injury solicitor will help you make a facial injury claim
In general, if someone talks about a facial injury you get the image of scars and disfigurement, but most times that is not the case. It is more likely to be:
- Affected sight
- Dental damage
- Broken bones
- Deafness or impaired hearing
If you have any of the above, or any other face injury, it could be the reason you want an injury solicitor to make a personal injury claim for you, if the accident that caused it was the fault of someone else.
The other factor of a facial injury
The other factor of a facial injury is that the physical affects of a face injury are not the only problem. Because the results can be so visual, often victims find their injuries embarrassing, and it can affect their social skills, sometimes leading to depression and anxiety.
Females are usually more affected in this way than males and generally, particularly with scarring, receive higher compensation awards than men. The men that need their looks for their living, such as male models or actors, are likely to be awarded a similar amount to a woman.
Why compensation is given
Personal injuries of any sort can be life changing. The compensation is not money given for no reason, it’s awarded in recognition that you may have to alter your day to day life totally to deal with those injuries, that you may have extra expenses along the way. Some of the extra costs incurred relating to a face injury claim might be:
- Hearing aid
- Plastic surgery
