Consequences of Facial Trauma
Traumatic injuries directly to the face can cause considerable pain and suffering. These injuries may affect a person’s everyday life in many ways, as the major structures of the face, each of which may be damaged in an accident, serve important functions. For those who suffer such traumatic facial injuries in New York, the attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, understand how difficult getting the treatment afterwards and making necessary life adjustments can be.
Personal Injury Claims from Facial Trauma
Facial trauma may place an overwhelming financial burden on an injured individual’s household that can be difficult, if not practically impossible, to overcome. This is because facial injuries may result in the following health concerns:
- Loss of sight or strength of sight if the eye is injured or a person sustains an orbital blowout fracture
- Difficulty speaking normally if the tongue, teeth, or jaw are injured
- Difficulty chewing if the jaw is injured or fractured
- Respiratory problems or loss of smell due to nose fractures or injuries
- Loss of hearing if the ears are damaged
- Brain damage
- Pain and discomfort
For those suffering from these and other problems related to facial traumas due to someone else’s negligence, financial compensation may be available, which can help alleviate many of the financial costs associated with treating such an injury.
