Accidents can have many tragic outcomes, not the least of which are disfiguring facial injuries and scars. Victims of these types of injuries may face extensive medical treatment, including reconstructive surgeries. They may experience mental as well as physical pain and suffering. Even with the best medical care, facial injury victims may find their appearance permanently altered.
Many types of accidents can result in facial injuries. A study published in the Journal of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery highlights how common facial injuries are in accidents. Over a 10-year period, 9,543 patients were admitted for treatment of facial injuries at a university hospital. Among those patients, 1,116 sustained their injuries in traffic accidents and 504 in work-related accidents. Sports, violence, activities of daily life and other causes accounted for the remainder, according to the study.
If you or a loved one has suffered a disfiguring facial injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. You should seek legal advice immediately – before you discuss the matter with an insurance adjuster and before you sign anything.
