Can I Sue for a Facial Injury from a Car Accident?

When you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you may have suffered serious injuries to various parts of the body. Unfortunately, that can cause undue suffering in addition to the care you’ll need for your injuries. 

For example, a facial injury can cause undue trauma beyond the costs of treating your injuries. At the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg, we understand that certain injuries can be more traumatic and difficult to overcome, which is why we’re here to help. If you’ve been hurt in a serious Milwaukee car accident, your lawyer can help you sue for a facial injury and get compensated. 

The Financial Costs of a Facial Injury 

When you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, one of the biggest costs to you may be the costs of your medical treatment. Facial injuries can cover a range of serious injuries, including the following: 

This is just a sample of the injuries that you can face. The economic damages for these injuries are high. Let’s say you lost some teeth in a car accident. You may need treatment to have any remaining tooth fragments removed. You may choose to get dental implants, which can be expensive, or dentures, which are a lifelong expense. 

Other injuries can have indirect economic impacts. For example, if you’re blinded in one or both eyes, you may be unable to return to work in the capacity you once did. You may be due compensation for your lost wages in these cases. 

Your Non-Economic Damages 

The non-economic impact of a facial injury also deserves compensation. But these damages aren’t so easy to calculate. For example, you may have suffered severe pain because of your injuries. How do you know what your pain is worth? How do you know what you’re due when another person has left you disfigured in a Wisconsin car accident? 

Because these damages can be so difficult to pursue, you may need help from a car accident lawyer. Getting compensated for your injuries isn’t easy, especially when you don’t have the specialized tools to calculate these damages. Luckily, your lawyer can help you determine what these damages are worth, so you can get the compensation you’re due.
