Compensation for
Facial Injuries

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to cycling accidents there are a number of different injuries that you can incur, but some one of the most debilitating injuries is a facial injury, which could leave you with severe scarring and damage that you may have to contend with for the rest of your life.

In most cycling accidents you will be thrown from the bicycle and your resulting impact with the ground can lead to severe cuts, lacerations and bruising of the facial areas, in some situations this can be so bad that it may require constructive surgery. If you have been left with injuries of this type then you may be able to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result.

 

What types of compensation could I claim for?

  • Cosmetic or reconstructive surgery – in many cases facial injuries may require complex cosmetic or reconstructive surgery which could also involve a great deal of rehabilitation, if this is required through the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a claim for these costs
  • Loss of income – if your facial injuries have left you unable to work, or unable to return to work at all then you could be eligible to claim for any potential lost earnings or any future lost earnings.
  • Damages – in addition to making a claim for your physical injuries, you may also be eligible to make a claim for additional damages including pain and suffering. Suffering from facial injuries can be incredibly demoralising and can leave you lacking confidence and unable to leave the house, as a result this could have an impact on your self-esteem and your ability to perform normal daily tasks.

What are some common facial injuries that I could incur?

When it comes to cycling accidents there are a number of facial injuries that you might consider making a claim for and these include:

  • Damage to the eyes and surrounding tissue
  • Broken or fractured nose
  • Cuts, lacerations, abrasions and bruising
  • Severe scarring
  • Facial injuries which result in the need for cosmetic surgery
  • Fractures to the facial area.

Who could I make a claim against?

Making a compensation claim can often seem like a daunting task, but if you have been the victim of negligence then you are entitled to every penny of compensation. There are a number of people who you may choose to make a claim against if you feel that they have been negligent towards you and this can include other road users if you have been involved in an accident, or local authorities and private property owners if you have been injured through negligent road maintenance.
