We recognise ourselves, as our friends and family recognise us, through familiarity with our faces. Our faces convey our thoughts, feelings and personality in ways that we often aren’t aware of and no other part of our bodies is more important to our sense of identity than our faces.
Considering how important our faces are to our sense of self, you can imagine how difficult it would be to look at your reflection and no longer recognise yourself or to lose the ability to express yourself as you once did. Unfortunately, this is the case for many people who suffer accidents which cause severe facial injuries. Indeed, aside from the obvious physical pain associated with facial injuries including operations needed to pin bones in place, the addition of prosthetics or the scarring that may be left, there can be serious emotional and psychological consequences. You may lose your confidence, hampering you when it comes to building professional or personal relationships and you may become depressed due to heightened self consciousness and the change in your appearance. Sadly, in some cases, the physical consequences could also lead to people losing their vision, smell or hearing.
Coping with the trauma of a facial injury is even more difficult if the accident itself was not your fault. However, if you can prove that the malice, negligence or recalcitrant refusal to obey the law of another person caused your injuries then you may be able to make a facial injury compensation claim. Such a claim would enable you to recover damages for the pain and suffering you have endured, the financial losses incurred from not be able to work for example, and the possible need for follow up treatments due to the extent of your injuries. Whilst these damages cannot remove the trauma completely, they can ease the financial burden.
