What Is A Facial Injury?

The term facial injury is an umbrella term for a variety of different kinds of accident and injury which can occur to the face. A face injury encompasses several different kinds of condition. These can range from bruising, through to fractured or broken bones and even injury of a facial nerve (nerve damage). Fractures of the area around and including the nose can also affect the victim’s breathing. Other common face injuries include various types of burns, dental damage and facial scarring as well as damage and injury to the eyes.

What Are The Main Causes Of Facial Injuries?

Facial injury claim

Injuries to the face can be caused by different circumstances such as criminal assaults, fires, and even workplace accidents.

Who is responsible for these injuries depends on the environment in which they happened. Burns to the face can be caused by things such as a fire or even toxic chemicals. If this occurs whilst you are at work, then your employer may be held responsible. That’s provided that your facial injury occurred because your employer acted negligently and breached the duty of care they owe you. People also suffered facial injuries as a result of road traffic accidents. If you have been in a collision or hit by a car as a pedestrian, and it wasn’t your fault, then the liable driver’s insurance company is likely going to be required to provide a compensation payout.

Facial injuries can also happen when people are physically assaulted. If this has happened to you, then you may be able to make a compensation claim for this. Even if you were unable to identify the assailant, or they are never found, you could potentially lodge a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. This organisation assists people who suffer an injury as a consequence of a criminal act.

In the next few sections, we are going to take a closer look at some of the types of incidents that could eventually lead to a facial injury claim. If, at any point, you would like to speak to an advisor about such claims, then you can contact Legal Expert for support.

Slip, Trip And Fall Facial Injuries

A facial injury can be sustained when someone has suffered a slip, trip or a fall. If this happens in a shop, cafe or other commercial environments, then that business may be held responsible if their negligence ultimately caused the accident and injury. In public places, it could be that the local authority is liable for your claim. This becomes more valid if the accident was the result of something such as a poorly maintained floor or uneven flooring.

Facial Injuries In the Workplace

All employers have a duty of care to their employees in the workplace. They are legally bound to protect staff against these types of injuries occurring. If an employer has failed to do this, the employer can be held liable for any staff who are injured as a result.

Employers are legally obliged to have public liability insurance. When you make a claim for a facial injury which has been sustained, this insurance usually covers any payouts owed to claimants.

Facial Injuries Caused By Criminal Actions

A facial injury can potentially be the consequence of a criminal action, such as assault. Such actions could occur in many places, including the workplace, at home or public areas. In order to start a valid compensation claim for criminal injuries including an injury to the face, you’ll need to establish with evidence that you were the innocent victim of an attack and this directly led to the injuries you’re claiming for.

If you have strong grounds to start a claim for a facial injury, you may have questions about how much it is worth. How much a facial injury compensation claim is worth will depend on what type of injury has been sustained to the face and how severe it’s deemed to be. For some people, a facial injury could have a harmful effect on the mind. Therefore, any psychological injuries which can be diagnosed due to the facial injury may need to be factored in too.

Some accidents or injuries can result in different levels of pain and discomfort and they can make pre-existing conditions worse. In addition to pain and suffering, things such as travel expenses, loss of earnings and medical expenses directly linked to the injury could potentially be claimed for too as part of a compensation claim.

Each claim for a facial injury is unique, so providing a compensation estimate is difficult without knowing the circumstances surrounding your case. If you have strong grounds to claim for a facial injury, you can contact Legal Expert for advice on matters including potential compensation payouts.
