Car Wreck Injuries: Facial Injuries

Knoxville Lawyer Helping Motor Vehicle Accident Victims in East Tennessee

Facial injuries caused by a car wreck in East Tennessee often are serious. They may be caused by severe blows, such as the impact of another car in a T-bone accident, or by penetration by an object or broken glass. In some cases, the facial injuries may consist of lacerations, or they may involve broken bones or punctures. Sometimes a jaw may be dislocated, causing permanent problems for the accident victim, including permanent disfigurement. At the Hartsoe Law Firm, Knoxville car wreck attorney Mark Hartsoe understands how serious facial injuries may be. He can fully explore the scope and impact of your injuries while advocating for the greatest amount of compensation that you are due.

Pursuing a Claim Based on Facial Injuries

Potential treatments for facial injuries depend on how serious the injuries are. In some situations, a victim may need prescription drugs, stitches, emergency care, or even reconstructive surgery. Generally, it is important for your health care provider to look out for the possibility of other injuries if you have suffered facial injuries. For example, a facial injury may indicate an eye injury or an injury to the inside of the mouth.

Most car accidents arise out of driver negligence and could have been prevented in the exercise of reasonable care. If you file a claim against an at-fault driver for your facial injuries, you will most likely need to establish that the driver failed to drive safely under the circumstances and that this failure was the cause of your injuries. For example, a jury is likely to find that a driver who was texting on his phone and ran a stop sign, T-boning your car, failed to drive safely under the conditions. Assuming that the T-bone crash was the direct result of that failure, the driver probably will be held liable.

If you are able to establish that driver negligence was the cause of your facial injuries, you may recover compensation for all of the losses that reasonably flowed from that negligence. These often include medical expenses, future medical costs, lost wages and lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The amount of compensation for noneconomic damages like pain and suffering or disfigurement may vary significantly, depending on the plaintiff. You can trust Knoxville attorney Mark Hartsoe to build a strong case for you by gathering evidence that explains all of the harm that you have suffered and are likely to suffer in the future.

Client Reviews
I was on my way to Atlanta and a huge truck rear-ended me and knocked me off the side of the road. I was scared. Didn’t know what to do. I tried working with the insurance company. They are just difficult to work with. I had to call somebody to take care of me. So, My brother told me to call Mark Hartsoe. As soon as I called Mark Hartsoe, he let me know real quick that everything was going to be okay and that he would take care of everything. And, he did. He got me a great settlement. He took the worry off of me. Mickey Anderson
I was hit coming home late at night by a drunk driver who took off. And the next day I was able to track down his vehicle and get the state police involved. At that point, a family friend recommended that I talk to Mark Hartsoe. Pretty much at that point, Mark handled the police, the insurance company and the guy who hit me. Settled with the actual person that hit me. Outside of that, everything came out great. Did not have to go to court. Got a great settlement. Got my car replaced. Got a check. Mark Hartsoe is my lawyer. Nate Holder
I was involved in a motorcycle accident. It was a head-on collision. I broke my arm, injured by knee. I was out of work for a long time and had medical bills, other expenses. A personal friend handed me a card for Mark Hartsoe. I called Mark Hartsoe from the side of the road and he took care of everything. My case was settled out of court. I received a great settlement. Bike was totaled, motorcycle was replaced. It was easy, painless. About as painless as something like this can be. This is why my lawyer is Mark Hartsoe. John Lusinger
