    The symptoms of a facial injury

    The symptoms of a facial injury


    The symptoms of a facial injury are usually easy to see. If someone else was responsible for causing your injury, you could make a claim for compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you.

    With an injury to the face, you don’t only have to deal with the physical effects of the injury. You also have the emotional trauma, as it will affect your appearance until it is healed.

    An injury to your face

    If you have an injury, you will have certain symptoms which can include:

    • Cuts and bruises. These will be easy to spot and will usually heal on their own. Deeper cuts may bleed a lot and can look worse than they really are.
    • The jaw can also be knocked and may be dislocated. This will cause pain and swelling in the face and your jaw will be stiff.
    • Noses are often hit when you receive an injury to the face. Bleeding is common when this happens. A broken nose can cause swelling and bruising.
    • If you receive a hard blow, you may chip teeth or even knock them out. This can cause bleeding and if you expose a nerve, a lot of pain as well.

    Claiming for the symptoms of a facial injury

    If you want to make a compensation claim for your injury, keep any evidence you may have that someone else was responsible. Letters and photographs are just two methods you can use.

    Keep a note of when your accident happened, as you only have three years to get your claim started.

    You may not feel that a facial injury warrants a trip to the doctor, but you should go anyway. If you have banged your face, you should make sure that you don’t have a head injury. To claim compensation, you will have to provide medical evidence as well.
