Having a fractured jaw can be an extremely painful injury to endure and it can lead to a lot of practical inconvenience and discomfort even if the fracture is minor.
Jaw fractures can happen to either the upper or lower jawbone
The jaw is an important part of your body, and a fracture can occur in the upper or lower jawbone. Damage to either can present problems with chewing food and speaking. If your jaw ends up being fractured it can mean you have difficulty doing one or both of these things. See below details of how much compensation for a fractured jaw.
Fractured Jaw Compensation Amounts
- If your jaw fracture has caused you serious pain and discomfort then compensation amounts are in the region of £21,800 up to £32,500. This category includes serious multiple fractures where sustained and regular treatment has been necessary along with limitations on being able to eat, the risk of arthritis on the joints and paraesthesia
- If you have had a serious fracture that has given permanent side effects then you can expect to receive between £12,850 and £21,800. This includes difficulty eating, opening the jaw or evidence of paraesthesia
- If your fracture is classed as a ‘simple jaw fracture’ then you can expect to receive between £4,600 and £6,250
Beginning A Fractured Jaw Injury Claim
