Facial Injury Claims
Suffering a facial or scarring injury can be very stressful so receiving the comfort of compensation can be a welcome boost.
This is where Claims National can help you with your facial injury claim.
Facial injuries can include fractures to facial bones (including a broken nose or jaw), bruising, lacerations and sometimes the loss or damage to teeth. It is not uncommon for serious fractures to the jaw or frontal bones to require surgery leaving long term symptoms. Often facial bone fracture cases will involve other injuries, such as scarring, concussion or other types of head injury.
Over the last three years, we have dealt with hundreds of facial scarring cases. They can range from small, well-healed scars to very obvious scarring that can cause the victim serious anxiety.
Facial scars can often be improved by scar revision plastic surgery, which why it becomes so important to claim the compensation you deserve. This type of surgery is expensive but is claimable from the other side if they are proven to be negligent for the accident.
At Claims National, we will help you make the right decision and secure the compensation you deserve. Your case will be dealt with personally in a strictly professional and confidential manor with no associated costs for legal fees.
Furthermore, we will take your case on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis and you will receive 100% of your facial injury compensation.

Common causes of facial injury include:
- Slips, trips or falls
- Criminal assaults
- Dog attacks
- Accidents at work
- Playing sports
- Car and road accidents
Facial injuries can result in damage or the loss of a tooth/teeth. If this is the case, you could be entitled to receive up to £2,600 for the loss of just one tooth., alongside any financial expenses of dental surgery.
Fractured jaws are also a common impact of facial injury. The amount of compensation you receive in this case will depend on the speed, and certainty of your recovery. The usual rate of compensation admitted for this type of injury varies between £4,300 and £5,800.
Injuries resulting in multiple fractures or permanent effects such as facial numbness can increase your compensation to around £30,000, or even higher if this sum does not cover the treatment and recovery of your facial injuries.
Ultimately, women can receive a larger sum of compensation for scars to the face. For example, an average scar to the face would allow a male to receive around £2,000 compensation, in oppose to a woman’s £60,000 sum. This is due to the stereotypical care and pride that women take in regards to their looks, especially their faces, and this sum would cover any cosmetic surgery that they wish to receive.
