Car Wreck Injuries: Facial Injuries
Facial injuries caused by a car wreck in East Tennessee often are serious. They may be caused by severe blows, such as the impact of another car in a T-bone accident, or by penetration by an object or broken glass. In some cases, the facial injuries may consist of lacerations, or they may involve broken bones or punctures. Sometimes a jaw may be dislocated, causing permanent problems for the accident victim, including permanent disfigurement. At the Hartsoe Law Firm, Knoxville car wreck attorney Mark Hartsoe understands how serious facial injuries may be. He can fully explore the scope and impact of your injuries while advocating for the greatest amount of compensation that you are due.Pursuing a Claim Based on Facial Injuries
Potential treatments for facial injuries depend on how serious the injuries are. In some situations, a victim may need prescription drugs, stitches, emergency care, or even reconstructive surgery. Generally, it is important for your health care provider to look out for the possibility of other injuries if you have suffered facial injuries. For example, a facial injury may indicate an eye injury or an injury to the inside of the mouth.
Most car accidents arise out of driver negligence and could have been prevented in the exercise of reasonable care. If you file a claim against an at-fault driver for your facial injuries, you will most likely need to establish that the driver failed to drive safely under the circumstances and that this failure was the cause of your injuries. For example, a jury is likely to find that a driver who was texting on his phone and ran a stop sign, T-boning your car, failed to drive safely under the conditions. Assuming that the T-bone crash was the direct result of that failure, the driver probably will be held liable.
If you are able to establish that driver negligence was the cause of your facial injuries, you may recover compensation for all of the losses that reasonably flowed from that negligence. These often include medical expenses, future medical costs, lost wages and lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The amount of compensation for noneconomic damages like pain and suffering or disfigurement may vary significantly, depending on the plaintiff. You can trust Knoxville attorney Mark Hartsoe to build a strong case for you by gathering evidence that explains all of the harm that you have suffered and are likely to suffer in the future.Consult Car Wreck Attorney Mark Hartsoe in Knoxville or Surrounding Areas
