Broken jaw injury
A broken jaw can be a painful injury which may take many weeks to recover from. You may even require surgery or need to have your jaw wired shut while the injury heals. Broken jaws can happen after a car accident, sports accident or mishap at work. You may have even experienced a broken jaw after a bad fall. Victims of a broken jaw may have difficulty breathing due to an obstruction in the airway, requiring immediate medical attention.
Symptoms of a broken jaw include pain, swelling and bleeding. The impact of the injury may change the shape of your face and you may have lost several teeth in the process. While you recover from a broken jaw you will need to eat soft foods as your jaw will be tender, sore and painful, and eating soft foods will help your jaw to heal.
If your jaw has been wired shut you may find it hard to get all the calories you need each day while you survive on foods that can be consumed through a straw. Although most people who suffer from broken jaw injuries should recover well, it is likely that you will go on to suffer from reoccurring joint pain. If your jaw was broken in an accident which wasn’t your fault it may be time to find out what your rights are with the help of a solicitor in Upavon.
