What should I do if I suffer a facial or dental injury in a slip and fall accident?

Severe facial and dental injuries can result from a trip or fall

You ask an important question, because it is essential for you to know what to do if you suffer an injury such as a:

  • Broken nose.
  • Broken jaw.
  • Broken cheekbone.
  • Broken tooth (or teeth).
  • Dislocated jaw.

Treatment for these injuries will depend on the extent of your injury, your age, and your overall health. Facial and dental injuries can be serious consequences of slip and fall accidents. Your injury may be painful, your treatment may be extensive, and your financial losses may be substantial.

It is important to see a doctor, dentist, or endodontist as soon as possible so that you can manage your pain, prevent your injury from worsening, and get the treatment that you need to get better.

However, that’s not the only step that you should take. While your medical or dental team works on your physical recovery, you will also need to take charge of your financial recovery.

  • Gather and preserve the evidence surrounding your accident.
  • Value your damages and advocate for your full and fair recovery in an insurance settlement or in a court of law.

If you have suffered a facial or dental injury then you may have significant…

  • Medical expenses.
  • Lost income.
  • Out-of-pocket costs.
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering.
