In this case study, we are going to look at the case of Miss J, whose name we have abbreviated to protect her privacy. At the time that she was awarded compensation, she was 20 years old and was studying at university. Miss J’s broken jaw accident happened nearly a decade earlier when she was just 11 years old. The accident happened when Miss J was a passenger in the backseat of a car, which collided with another car whilst travelling at speed. Although Miss J was wearing a seat belt, her head, neck, and shoulder were jolted forward, and her jaw was damaged upon impact, causing her severe pain.
How Common Are Road Traffic Accidents In The UK?
2016 there were 181,384 casualties in the UK, due to road traffic accidents. 24,101 of these were serious accidents. There are a total of 1,792 road traffic accidents were fatal, this represents a 4% increase, vs. 2015 and makes 2016 the worst year for road traffic accident deaths since 2011.
What Injuries did the Claimant Sustain?
At the time of impact, Miss K badly dislocated her jaw. These symptoms worsened after the accident, leaving her unable to fully open her mouth, chew solid food, or in time the ability brush her teeth and wash herself. In time the condition deteriorated further, locking and swelling, causing Miss J considerable pain and disrupting everyday activities such as talking, sleeping and eating.
As well as physical injuries Miss J also suffered psychological damage, falling into deep depression when her symptoms worsened, which impacted her quality of life. What’s more, her secondary school education as she constantly missed, or had to leave school when her symptoms caused her too much pain.
What broken jaw treatment did Miss J have to undergo for her injuries? At first Miss J received treatment that would only provide temporary relief, which was regular and intrusive. After multiple scans, her doctors decided the best option Miss K would be joint replacement surgery. This broken jaw treatment, unfortunately, is not a permanent cure for a broken jaw. Consultants advised that Miss J would need a replacement procedure within 20 years of the initial procedure and then another replacement procedure every 25 years after that. Unfortunately, with every operation, her condition would worsen and she still requires the same regular broken jaw treatment that she was currently undergoing.
The Allegation And The Compensation Award
Miss J’s legal team came to a broken jaw settlement with the Defendant out of court. The figure Miss J received in broken jaw compensation was £150,000 in damages. This included £28,000 awarded for general damages and a further £62,000 awarded in special damages to cover future medical expenses.
