Following a proper medical diagnosis of your cheekbone fracture, you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the negligent party. It is advisable to consult a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as is practical after your injury in order to ascertain whether you have a valid claim. The only proof that you will be required to have is that your injury occurred as a direct result of the negligence of another who is therefore legally responsible for your suffering. A specialist will have dealt with similar cases in the past thus will know what compensation offer is likely to be given to you for your pain and distress. Furthermore, a specialist personal injury solicitor will be able to direct you as to the evidence and witness testimonies that might help your case also.
A cheekbone fracture is a type of facial fracture that results in broken bones and can be both painful and traumatic to the sufferer. The face itself is prone to injury therefore cheekbone fractures are one of the most universal complaints. Often referred to as the zygomatic or malar bone also, the cheekbone usually becomes fractured following a trauma to the face. Common symptoms can include bruising, loss of sensation as well as swelling around the cheek.
Typical causes of cheekbone fractures include:
Therefore, if you have suffered from a cheekbone fracture through another’s negligence or carelessness then you may have a claim for compensation in respect of your injury sustained.
Our team of claim specialists are on hand throughout the working week to answer any questions or help you understand the claims process.
The main determinant for compensation in a cheekbone fracture claim is the severity of the injury itself as well as the pain and suffering endured. A report by an independent medical expert will provide details of the nature and extent of your cheekbone injury as well as the likely recovery time. A specialist personal injury solicitor will use this report as well as looking at similar claims in order to provide an estimated compensation offer in respect of your claim. There is no defined sum that can be expected since all claims are founded on their own facts although the law does provide general guidance as to compensation for cheekbone injuries. Minor injuries therefore can attract damages up to £1,500 whilst more serious injuries can result in damages up to £5,500. As such, an offer of compensation is ultimately decided on a case-by-case basis. Other financial considerations such as your current and future loss of earnings as well as all medical expenses would be accounted for in your eventual award for damages also.
To make a claim, you should consult a specialist personal injury solicitor soon after the medical diagnosis of your injury. A specialist will be best to advise you of your claim in respect of the facts of your case. They will have a greater knowledge than most in respect of cheekbone injury compensation claims. Here at Scot Accident Claims, we have many specialists that have experience amongst all types of personal injury cases therefore can help you in making your claim today.
