How Compensation Could Help You

Claiming compensation offers victims a chance to significantly improve their quality of life and helps to fund any medical treatment, rehabilitation and physiotherapy that the patient might require.

In addition, it can go some small way to compensate you for any psychological suffering that may have been caused, as well as any loss of earnings suffered as a result of the injury.

Effects and Symptoms

Facial injuries can be particularly distressing for sufferers because they have the potential to both disfigure the victim and significantly affect their ability to function. For example, an injury could seriously affect one or more of their senses, or their ability to breathe.

Cheekbone injuries, for example, are common among those who play sports, with fractures often resulting in bruising, soreness, loss of sensation, flatness of the cheek and swelling. Because the face is a vulnerable area, injuries to the cheekbone can also have a detrimental effect on the eye, causing pain and problems with sight.

For this reason, facial injuries can seriously affect the victim’s quality of life. Even injuries that only leave superficial damage can cause severe levels of pain and suffering, potentially affecting their confidence, mental health and ability to work.

Those that also affect sensory function could also lead to life-changing conditions such as blindness or deafness. In serious cases that result in surgery and permanent damage, a greater amount of compensation is likely to be paid out.

Types of Facial Injury

There are many different types of facial injury, and, over the years, we have helped those who have suffered:

  • Fractures
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Scarring

Each injury carries with it a different set of symptoms and required treatments, but many can be extremely painful and leave lasting cosmetic damage.
