Can I Recover New Jersey Medical Bills for Facial Injuries in a Car Accident?

By Lependorf & Silverstein on March 29, 2016

In many ways, the human face is very vulnerable. Injuries to the eyes, nose, ears, or mouth can all lead to impairment of one or more senses. The skin of the face is thinner than it is on other areas of the body, which means it can be damaged more easily and may scar more severely as it heals.

During a car accident, flying glass or debris or impact against any part of the vehicle can cause serious facial injuries. If you suffer these injuries during a car accident, you may be able to recover medical bills for treating the injury. Medical bills that may be covered for facial injuries include:

  • Costs of treating the initial injury. Medical care for lacerations, broken bones, or other damage that occurs during the accident is frequently included in a damages award.
  • Costs of reconstructive surgery. Some facial injuries cause extensive harm that requires multiple surgeries in order to correct. In these cases, the injured person can often recover the costs of the surgery or surgeries as well as the costs of initial treatment.
  • Damages for pain and suffering and related harms. Our face plays a key role in our identity – both how we view ourselves and how others see us. Permanent facial injuries can seriously challenge or change this image, resulting in ongoing emotional trauma. Damages may be available to help pay for the costs of this trauma.
