Jaw Injury Compensation Claims
A broken jaw compensation claim is broken down into two parts. The first part is compensation for your loss of amenity, pain and suffering, which can vary from person to person. The second part the claim is a loss of earnings and medical expenses, which are usually much easier to calculate if you have been keeping on top of your earnings.
If you have been subject to a jaw injury that was not your fault, then you may be eligible to claim compensation. Please call Tylers Solicitors today on 0800 699 0079, and we can then take you through your jaw injury compensation claim.
A jaw injury falls under a ‘dental claim’ in UK tort law. A dental claim is a compensation for damage or injury to your gums, teeth, roots or your jaw as a result of either an accident or negligence. If your injury was due to a criminal injury, such as ABH or GBH, you do not need to prove negligence, only that an act of violence occurred.

What are the Most Common Types of Ankle Injury?
Spraining is a common ankle injury and happens when the muscles and tendons that surround the bone become overstretched. In more serious cases, those muscles and tendons can be torn, and surgery may be necessary to repair the damage. One of the immediate results of a sprained ankle is extreme pain followed by rapid swelling around the joint. It is important to keep weight off a sprained ankle until the swelling has gone as well as applying a cold surface to the wound as medical attention is sought.
