Types of Accidents Resulting in Facial Injuries
Your face is perhaps the most visible part of your body, so an injury to the face can be devastating. Unfortunately, facial injuries occur often, usually as a result of a blow to the face, exposure to something sharp, or chemical or other burns. While many different types of accidents can result in damage to your face, some of the most common reasons for facial injuries include:
- Auto accidents
- Slip and falls
- Workplace injury
- Fires or chemical exposure
- Sports injuries
- Dog bites
These are just a few of the top causes of facial injuries. The sad reality is that when people are negligent, careless, or take dangerous risks, you could suffer as a result of their choices.
Types of Facial Injuries
Many different types of facial injuries can occur depending upon the accident or incident that hurt you. Some of the different types of facial injuries include:
- Broken bones, including the jawbone, the bones of the eye socket or the nose
- Cuts and bruises, which can sometimes result in permanent scarring
- Burn injuries, which almost always result in permanent scarring even if you opt for expensive skin grafts
- Deformities, including sunken cheekbones that are caused by damage to the facial bones
These and other facial injuries can be devastating as there is no way to hide the harm that you suffered. You may need expensive medical treatment, including plastic surgery. You may also be in a significant amount of pain due to your condition. You deserve to be fully compensated.
