Wherever you live in the UK, we hope that you won’t be involved in an accident that was not your fault and as a result suffer from facial injuries, as this could mean using solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation.
When we say a facial injury, this could mean an injury affecting anywhere from your forehead to the base of your jaw, and could include any of the following:
- Disfigurement or scarring is the most visual of the facial injuries. The compensation awards for this are normally greater for women than men, although men will receive a similar amount if they are models, for example.
- The eyes can be damaged and sight affected. Sometimes blindness can happen as a result of a facial injury.
- Fractured bones. This can vary, as there are several bones in the face. A broken jawbone can create eating and speech difficulties, while a broken nose can create breathing problems. Some broken bones could cause a deformity of facial features.
- Damage to the teeth is often overlooked as a facial injury, yet loosing teeth can put the victim through a lot of pain and expense to have them replaced with false teeth.
If any facial injury happens to you because of an accident that was not your fault, then it might be time to make a personal injury claim.

People who have facial injuries can be extremely embarrassed, as these types of injuries can be very visual, especially if its scarring or deformities.
