If you suffer form a facial injury through an accident that was not your fault, then this can be devastating, and you should consider using the solicitors in Jacobstow to claim compensation from the person that caused your suffering.
The term facial injury covers from the top of you head to your jaw bone and could be:
- Broken bones
- Blindness or impaired sight
- Deafness or impaired hearing
- Loss of or damage to teeth
The problem with some facial injuries is that they can cause secondary issues, like:
- Trouble breathing if you have a broken a nose bone
- Trouble talking to eating if your jaw bone is broken
- Your eye can sink to far into its socket if the bones around the eye are broken
- Psychological problems if there is scarring because it is so visible
These injuries and other issues are just a few examples of the types of things that can be classed as a facial injury. If any of these happen to you, or any other type of injury, in an accident that was not your fault, and the accident happened no more than three years ago, you should be speaking with the solicitors in Jacobstow at Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury claim.
Other effects that may mean you need to use the solicitors in Jacobstow
Women tend to suffer more stress and discomfort from a facial injury, because some of the injuries are so visual and you may feel embarrassed. This reason means that women tend to receive a higher compensation amount than that of men with a similar injury. However if a man needs their looks for their job, for example they are a model, then they are more likely to receive a similar amount of compensation as the women.
Compensation is not given for no reason
Compensation is not given out for no reason. If you have had an injury because of an accident then your life may change forever. Compensation is given in recognition on how much your life might have to change as well as dealing with your injuries, and you also may have extra costs because of the injury.
Here are some extra costs incurred relating to a face injury claim might be:
- Hearing aid
- Plastic surgery
