Jaw Injuries can be caused under numerous circumstances. Given below are some situations which can give rise to jaw injury claims.
Medical or dental negligence – if your doctor, medical professional or dentist is negligent whilst carrying out a facial treatment or a dental procedure, it is possible for you to suffer injuries to your jaw.
Violent assault – it is possible to sustain jaw injuries if you have been a victim of a violent attack. In such cases, a compensation claim can be made via the CICA which is also known as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board.
Work Accidents – people in the building and construction industry are at an increased risk of sustaining bodily injuries. Injuries to the jaw can be sustained as a result of falls from heights or if you are hit by a heavy object.
