Have you been injured and suffered a serious facial injury? Call our specialist injury solicitors in Keighley

Facial injuries are some of the most distressing types of injury that can occur following an accident or incident. If the accident wasn’t caused by your fault, then this trauma can be even harder to come to terms with. Whilst claiming compensation won’t change the fact that you have been hurt, it can enable you to make choices about the care that you may require and your long-term plans for yourself and your family. If you think that you have grounds on which to base a personal injury claim, call our specialist injury solicitors in Keighley at Accident Advice Helpline.

What is a facial injury?

Facial injuries are defined as any trauma to the facial area. This area includes:

  • The lower jaw;
  • The upper jaw;
  • The forehead;
  • The chin;
  • The cheeks;
  • The nose; and
  • The mouth.

The causes of facial injury

Facial injuries can be caused by any accident or incident that results in trauma to the face, including:

  • Road traffic accidents;
  • Motorcycle accidents;
  • Cycling accidents;
  • Industrial accidents;
  • Workplace accidents;
  • Construction accidents;
  • Assault;
  • Chemical or burns from acidic based compounds;
  • Slips, trips and falls; and
  • Medical negligence.

Treating facial injury

Facial injury requires specialist treatment, which may be available in dedicated facial trauma centres. In the event of burns or acid attacks, the casualty may require intensive care to reduce the risk of infection and aid recovery.

Facial injuries may require long periods of recovery and ongoing treatment to ensure that the face can be reconstructed and function can be restored. This can have a devastating effect on the patient, as they may be in hospital for numerous operations spanning a long period of time.

Broken or fractured bones may be repaired using titanium plates, screws and wires, and these may be highly successful, leaving few scars.

The effect of facial injury

Any changes to our facial area can result in distress and concern. Our faces identify us as individuals, and if they are injured then the patient may feel loss and depression. Emotional, psychological and medical assistance is required to ensure that the patient has the best outcome for their condition.
