What Should I Do Next?
Armed with the knowledge of how much your facial injury claim could be valued, it is vital to carefully consider your next steps in order to maximise your chances of a successful claim.
The most essential action to take is to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. This will allow you to weigh up your various options, based on an expert assessment of the specific circumstances of your case, and will give you access to personalised advice on the value of the claim.
Once you have made the decision to move ahead with your compensation claim, your solicitor will start compiling the relevant medical evidence and statements to support your case, while getting in touch with the party responsible for your injuries. If the body of evidence is on your side, your legal team will be able to help you achieve a positive outcome and obtain the compensation you deserve for your claim.
What Can Affect The Value Of A Compensation Claim?
If you have been affected by facial injury or any other kind of personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation for the resulting pain and suffering you have experienced. However, compensation settlements will also take into account other factors, including the broader impact the injury has had on your lifestyle, finances, and career.
For example, your compensation may need to be adjusted to account for the effect your facial injury has had on your quality of life. Even injuries that only leave superficial damage to the face can cause severe levels of pain, potentially affecting your confidence, mental health, and ability to work.
Additionally, more serious facial injuries can also affect sensory functions, which can lead to life-changing conditions such as blindness or deafness. In cases that result in surgery and permanent damage, a greater amount of compensation is likely to be paid out.
By speaking to your solicitor, you will be able to get an accurate appraisal of which of these factors are relevant in your case, and how much you could therefore be owed.
How Can Compensation Help?
Claiming compensation offers victims a chance to significantly improve their quality of life, helping to fund any medical treatment, rehabilitation, and physiotherapy that you might require.
In addition, it can go some way to compensating you for any psychological suffering that may have been caused, as well as any loss of earnings suffered as a result of the injury. In this way, making a compensation claim can be instrumental in helping you move on with your life.
Types of Facial Injury
Facial injuries can be particularly distressing for sufferers because they have the potential to 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.
Common forms of facial injury include:
Each injury carries with it a different set of symptoms and required treatments, but many can be extremely painful and leave lasting cosmetic damage.
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.
Facial injuries can be caused by all sorts of factors, ranging from accidents at work to road traffic accidents or sporting injuries, among others. If you have sustained a facial injury due to someone else’s negligence, get in touch with JMW as soon as possible to discuss a claim for compensation.
