Craniofacial Injury Lawyers In Buffalo A craniofacial injury is a broad term that refers to trauma inflicted on the face or skull. It can pertain to skin, teeth, and bone injuries as well as portions of the neck, mouth, and sinuses. Whether craniofacial trauma occurs in an assault, car crash, sport-related mishap, or other accident, this type of injury is typically caused by a sharp blow or blunt force to the face. The severity of craniofacial injuries ranges considerably from minor scratches and complete disfigurement to death. The face is one of the most complex bone structures in the body. The facial skeleton consists of the lower jaw, upper jaw, nasal bones, cheekbones, eye sockets, and forehead. Even minor craniofacial injuries can cause severe pain, interfere with routine activities, and result in loss of normal functioning. Damage to any one of the bones in your face could potentially affect your ability to eat, speak, see, and even breathe.

More severe facial trauma cases often require treatment from craniofacial doctors and specialists. Fortunately, if you have suffered a severe craniofacial injury caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

Common Symptoms Associated With Craniofacial Injuries

Craniofacial Injury Lawyers In Buffalo After an accident, some symptoms normally accompanying facial injuries may not be immediately apparent. Facial injuries usually affect the lower jaw, upper jaw, nose, cheeks, eye sockets, or forehead. Craniofacial trauma is often recognized by the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Laceration or puncture wounds to the skin;
  2. Difficulty breathing through the nose;
  3. Bleeding from the nose, ears, or mouth;
  4. Movement in the jaw even when the head is stabilized;
  5. Chipped or missing teeth;
  6. Uneven, irregular, or deformed facial bones;
  7. Severe pain and swelling of the face;
  8. Tingling or numbness of the face;
  9. Double vision or other vision complications;
  10. Difficulty talking, chewing food, or swallowing;
  11. Widening of the space between your eyes; and
  12. Discoloration or bruising around your eyes or ears.

Some victims of broken facial bones only encounter minor issues, while others are forced to contend with major complications. Regardless of how negligible your symptoms may be, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s caring team recommends contacting your doctor as soon as possible.



The Main Objectives of Treating Your Facial Trauma

When left untreated, fractures and other facial injuries can worsen over time and result in further complications as well as more pain and suffering. For instance, if a broken nose is left untreated, it can lead to a delayed union or nonunion. In other words, your nose may take much longer to mend or not heal and remain broken. Your doctor will perform a physical exam for bone fractures, soft tissue damage, and other injuries. Modern medical technology, such as CT scans and other imaging technologies, help provide doctors with a much better understanding when assessing the damage and potential long-term complications caused by a craniofacial injury. In severe cases, emergency operations may be necessary. In other instances, allowing the inflammation and bruising to subsist first is more appropriate. Surgeons may operate if your injury causes a deformity or inhibits normal functioning. The primary objectives of treating craniofacial injuries include:

  1. Clearing obstructions to the airway;
  2. Controlling bleeding;
  3. Preventing scars and other disfigurements;
  4. Preventing loss of vision;
  5. Realigning the upper and lower teeth;
  6. Preventing serious infections;
  7. Repairing a fracture or broken bone segment;
  8. Preventing long-term sunken eyes or double vision;
  9. Mending recessed cheekbones; and
  10. Ruling out other serious injuries.

If the victim is stable and has not suffered a neck fracture, he or she should be treated as soon as possible. The treatment performed for a facial injury depends on the severity and area impacted by the trauma. Additionally, especially when performing corrective surgery, children require special considerations so that the treatment grows as the child matures.
