Facial injuries are one of the most devastating and painful types of injury that can result from an accident, especially one that wasn’t caused by your own fault. The facial area is not only particularly sensitive to pain, it is also the prime location of the senses of sight, touch, taste and sound. Under these circumstances you could make a no win no fee in Betchworth claims.
If you have sustained a painful facial injury as the result of an accident or incident that wasn’t your fault within the last 3 years, then you are legally entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim.
