Claiming compensation for facial injuries
If you have been hurt in an accident, sustaining facial injuries, you could be entitled to claim compensation with our expert solicitor in Stock.
How did you receive your facial injuries?
It is a sensitive question but one that will be professionally asked by our advisers, on the end of the phone here at Accident Advice Helpline (call us on 0800 689 0500).
Some people receive facial injuries in accidents, such as being knocked from a bike. Some people sustained horrific injuries from car accidents, usually in head-on collisions. Other people that our solicitor in Stock have helped, received facial burns from being involved in various different types of accident.
The main point in personal injury law is that the facial injuries you sustained must have been as a result of an accident or incident that was NOT your fault.

What treatment did you or are you receiving for your facial injuries?
Again, another sensitive question with confidential details being collected by our advisers to pass on to our solicitor in Stock, that will help to develop your claim.
They will need to know who you saw in the medical profession, as well as the treatment you received including any medication you are currently taken, as well as any appointments you may have had at clinics.
These details for part of your compensation claim and will be used by your specialist solicitor in Stock to ascertain the level of compensation you could be entitled to. In all cases, we attempt to claim the maximum amount possible.
As part of your compensation claim, your solicitor in Stock will also need to assess how your facial injuries will impact on your future. Will you, for example, need extensive medical treatment, such as further operations or specialist treatment?
When did you receive your facial injuries?
For the majority of compensation claims – industrial diseases and illnesses, and cases relating to minors have a deadline that is applied differently – you must make your claim for compensation within three years of the date of the accident.
This is laid down in personal injury law and your solicitor in Stock is unable to change it hence, you must make your claim as soon as you can. This means that details are not forgotten, although for some claimants there is an obvious gap between the accident and starting their claim – they need to recover from their injuries in some cases.
Our solicitor in Stock can help you claim for injuries sustained in an accident that was not your fault. Call us to find out more on 0800 689 0500.
