If you’ve suffered a jaw injury, you may experience not only physical pain but also trouble carrying out daily activities such as eating and drinking. Our jaw injury claims solicitors will strive to secure you compensation for your injury.

How To Make A Jaw Injury Claim

Start by contacting our team on 0800 056 4110 and we’ll arrange a free initial consultation for you. During this, we’ll ask some questions about how your injury happened, who you believe is it fault and how your life has changed.

If we believe you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Our legal specialists can help you to claim for:

  • Broken or damaged teeth
  • Damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments
  • Dislocated jaw
  • Broken jaw
  • Nerve damage.

The effects of a jaw injury vary from short-term pain and loss of income to life-changing impacts. Our support and rehabilitation teams will help you to claim not only for this physical damage, but for the trauma of long-term effects such as anxiety or facial disfigurement.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Jaw Injury Claim?

Many jaw injury claims are following criminal assault. For these claims, you’ll have two years from the date of the injury to make a claim. In non-criminal cases, you’ll have three years from the injury date to claim. While these time limits may be extended in some cases, we always encourage you to claim as soon as you’re well enough to do so.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Jaw Injury?

There are no set compensation amounts for jaw injuries as every case is different. For example, broken jaw compensation will likely result in a larger settlement than for a broken tooth. We’ll determine your settlement by assessing:

  • The severity of your injury
  • Loss of earnings
  • The impact on your life, for example, confidence issues
  • Your potential need for ongoing treatment, such as cosmetic surgery.

We understand that the effects of a jaw injury go far beyond the physical damage – your self-image and confidence may also be affected. Our support and rehabilitation teams will help you access rehabilitation where appropriate, and we can also help you arrange counselling and interim compensation payments where applicable.

No Win No Fee Jaw Injury Claims

Most of our jaw injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final settlement.

The compensation is far more than I ever expected, and I am naturally delighted with this outcome - I am quite sure I could never have achieved this on my own."
