Facial Injuries and Hollywood Workplace Accidents

Any workplace can be hazardous at one point or another. Even a quiet library can result in a range of injuries and dangers for workers. In any workplace, facial injuries are an especially common and especially painful injury.

Your injury may have long-term or permanent effects and speaking with a Hollywood workplace injury claims lawyer can give you the facts about your rights so you can plan your next steps.

Common Facial Injuries Sustained in Hollywood Workplace Accidents

Employees can suffer many types of facial injuries in the workplace, including:

  • Lacerations. These can happen if a worker is hit in the face during an assault or by a piece of debris, leading to cuts to the skin. Lacerations can lead to scarring, bleeding, and painful infection.
  • Burns. Chemicals and hot liquids or objects in the workplace (such as hot food in a restaurant, for example) can cause burns to the face. These injuries can cause serious scarring or even damage to the nerves under the skin, leading to a loss of mobility and sensation.
  • Fractures. Bones in the nose, cheekbones, eye sockets, jaw, skull, and forehead can crack or break if a worker is hit with a falling object or is assaulted at work. These injuries can also happen in slip and fall accidents. Depending on which bone is affected, the injured worker can lose their vision, suffer a serious brain injury, have difficulty eating or speaking, or may suffer other injuries.
  • Dental Injuries. An employee’s teeth can get broken or knocked out or they can suffer injuries to the jaw in cases where their face is hit by heavy machinery or impacted in some other way. Dental injuries are expensive to fix and are painful. They can also cause difficulty with speech and eating.
  • Eye Injuries. These injuries can include damage to the eye as well as fractures to the bone surrounding the eye. They can be caused by chemical exposure, falls, or other accidents and can lead to vision problems, vision loss, nerve damage, and other difficulties.

Facial Injuries Can Have Serious Consequences

Facial injuries are very challenging and can have devastating consequences. For example, if you lose your vision because of an on-the-job injury, you may be unable to return to work and may need to learn how to take care of everyday tasks without the use of your sight. If you suffer scarring and you have a public-facing job, you could be demoted or face difficulties at work.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
