Facial and Dental Injuries
A car accident can lead to substantial damages to a person’s face and mouth. These injuries can have a serious impact on a person’s abilities to perform necessary tasks in addition to the damage done to his or her looks. Usually, airbags and seat belts can give you the protection you need to avoid these devastating injuries. However, if these safety devices fail, it can result in severe consequences.
If you have faced additional suffering in an auto accident due to faulty seat belts or malfunctioning airbags, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with your recovery.

Causes of Face and Mouth Injuries
During an accident, seat belts are meant to lock so that you are not thrown face-first into your steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield. In addition, airbags are supposed to deploy to provide you with a cushion to protect you from impact. If either of these fails in their duties, your face can hit the steering column, dashboard, or windshield with enough force to seriously damage your face or mouth.
Problems Associated with Maxillofacial Injuries
The following issues may occur when a person sustains a facial or dental injury:
