California Facial Injury Lawyers Assert Your Rights Effectively

Sacramento law firm pursues full compensation in face trauma cases

Facial injuries are hard to hide, which is why in addition to severe physical pain, they also cause significant emotional distress. If you have suffered damage to your face as a result of someone else’s actions, the law firm of Mastagni Holstedt, A.P.C. will stand up for your rights. Our attorneys secure payment for medical bills, pain and suffering and the full spectrum of compensable damages sustained by clients throughout California. Our attorneys provide outstanding legal services from office locations in Sacramento, San Mateo, Pleasanton, Inglewood and Rancho Cucamonga. 

Common causes and types of facial injuries

Car crashes, motorcycle accidents, bicycle collisions, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall incidents, dog bites, workplace accidents and violent assaults can result in serious facial injuries. Common medical conditions associated with these incidents include:

  • Lacerations 
  • Bruising and swelling
  • Burns
  • Fractures of the nose, jaw and eye sockets
  • Broken teeth and other dental injuries
  • Soft tissue damage

Injuries to the face can severely impact your life. If you believe another party was responsible for the accident in which you were hurt, a personal injury lawyer from our firm can investigate the evidence to determine if one or more defendants are legally liable. If so, we’ll give you a well-informed assessment of the compensation that you deserve. Even if you were partially to blame for the accident, you can still obtain damages under the California’s pure comparative negligence law, but the amount you collect will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. 

Physical and psychological effects of facial injuries

A blow to your face is usually painful and can also result in scarring, disfigurement and loss of facial function. You might have trouble eating, breathing, seeing or speaking depending on the specific injuries. Trauma to your face and head can also harm your brain. Moreover, facial disfigurement can trigger severe emotional and psychological problem. Your self-esteem might suffer due to embarrassment over your appearance, possibly leading to anxiety, depression and reduced quality of life. When you are already paying the physical and emotional price for someone else’s negligent or violent behavior, you should not be responsible for the financial costs too. Our attorneys will provide knowledgeable guidance to you through every step of the legal process as we work to maximize your financial recovery. 

Damages in facial injury cases

Following a facial injury, you might require emergency care, CT scans and X-rays, reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitative therapies and additional expensive treatments. Your symptoms or medical appointments could mean that you are unable to work while you are healing, further complicating your financial situation. Possible damages you could claim to address your economic and noneconomic losses include the following:  

  • Current and future medical costs
  • Lost income and benefits
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages if you’ve been maliciously assaulted

We will help you determine the value of your damages and advocate for you to receive full compensation in a settlement or verdict.   

Deadline for filing an injury lawsuit

You should not wait if you are considering a legal claim after suffering a facial injury. The statute of limitations for filing personal injury lawsuits in California is two years from the date when you were hurt.
