Shattered glass, flying objects, sharp metal, and the force of a deploying airbag-it is not surprising that many Boca Raton accident victims suffer facial injuries. Some of these injuries are minor. Small cuts, scratches, and bruises fade with time. However, many facial injuries are severe enough to leave permanent scars or cause disfigurement.
Some types of facial injuries from Boca Raton car accidents are:
- Broken bones
- Nose injuries
- Dental injuries
- Eye injuries
- Nerve damage
Think of the expression "face the world." While you'd like to think that you are more than a pretty face, it is your face that provides others with a first impression. It's not fair, but a serious facial injury can affect the way others react to you at work, at school, and at social activities.
Reconstructive plastic surgery can help repair or reduce scarring and bone deformities from a Boca Raton car crash. But reconstructive surgery is expensive. If the injury is severe, multiple surgeries may be necessary.
Who pays for reconstructive surgery after a Boca Raton car accident? The first $10,000 of your injuries will be covered by your own personal injury protection insurance. However, the average cost of a hospital stay is over $33,000. If you have sustained a serious facial injury because of an accident that was not your fault, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses through a Florida personal injury claim. A Boca Raton accident injury attorney can help.
