If you or someone you care about has suffered from facial trauma due to an accident caused by a drunk driver, consult an auto injury lawyer from the Atlanta law firm of Shane Smith. Facial damage or disfigurement – also referred to as maxillofacial trauma – is a common result of serious traffic accidents.
The highest risk factors of sustaining severe facial damage include the following:
- the presence of light poles, trees, or parked cars in the accident area;
- failure to wear a safety belt;
- high enough speeds to cause ejection from the vehicle;
- alcohol usage; and
- burn wounds from being trapped inside a vehicle after is crashes.
Facial disfigurement can range in levels of severity. Likewise, the cost of treatment can vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the type of injury and how the damage it has done physically and emotionally.
