There are a number of different ways in which you could damage your cheekbone, including:
The full extent of your injuries will be reflected in your compensation amount.
A cheekbone injury can also be regarded as a facial injury. If you have experienced scarring then this will also be considered when calculating your final compensation settlement as scarring often causes psychological conditions like emotional distress and anxiety. This will factored in when considering the pain and suffering element of your claim.
As well as falling and slipping, one of the main reasons for cheekbone injuries is because someone has been involved in a physical assault. If you have been attacked then you could be able to make your claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), an organisation set up to compensation people who have been innocently injured in a violent crime.
In order to be eligible to make your cheekbone injury claim with CICA, you must be a UK resident and you must make your claim within two years of the attack happening. You can deal directly with CICA or you can appoint a personal injury lawyer to deal with the matter on your behalf. Also, if your claim is valued at less than £1000, you will not be able to conduct your claim through this authority. For more information about making a claim through CICA it is advisable to speak to a personal injury lawyer.
