Orbital Fractures

Orbital Fracture Lawyers

The orbit is the part of the skull where the eye socket is located. Blunt trauma to the orbit may cause a blowout fracture, which may also be described as a ball or fist injury. Because of the proximity of the orbital bone to the eye and nose, orbital fractures can threaten vision and the function of the ear, nose and throat.

Orbital Bone Fracture Treatment

Treatment of an orbital fracture will vary depending on the severity of the injury and other the injuries the patient has sustained. Severe facial trauma can potentially cause a traumatic brain injury, as well as other facial bone fractures. Treatment of any facial injury aims to leave as little physical evidence of the injury as possible. Early repair of injuries usually results in better outcomes and physical appearance, and less likelihood of infection. X-rays and CT scans may be used to diagnose a orbital fracture. Depending on the injury, orbital fractures and other associated injuries to the face may require surgical procedures performed by otorhinolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

Causes of Orbital Fractures

The major causes of orbital fractures and other facial fractures, such as nasal fractures,cheekbone fractures, and jawbone fractures, are acts of violence, motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian injury accidents, cycling accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, and various accidents due to the negligent supervision of a child.

Compensation for Facial Fracture Injuries

The psychological trauma of a facial fracture and long-term facial disfigurement can be significant. If you have suffered facial disfigurement due to a facial fracture, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical treatment, future cosmetic surgeries, lost earnings, and emotional pain and suffering. Whether you were hurt in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligent, reckless, or willful actions, you may claim compensation for your injury.

How Much is Your Case Worth?

Every injury is different with a unique set of facts and circumstances. The amount of compensation you are entitled to for your injuries will vary based on the severity of the injury, how the injury occurred, who caused the injury, and ultimately how the injury affects your life. If you are not able to work as a result of your injury, you may be entitled to lost earnings you otherwise would have earned. If your injury causes loss of potential earning capacity in the future, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of future earning capacity.
