Facial And Dental Injuries

Following a traffic collision, injuries to the face and mouth often have the potential to cause facial disfigurement, not to mention loss of function. Injuries to the face are some of the worst injuries because of the emotional trauma related to the appearance of the injury.

Amanda H.

Amanda H. was injured when another vehicle crossed the center line in Pikeville, Kentucky, crashing into her car. The at-fault driver was uninsured. Fortunately, Amanda had a $50,000 uninsured motorist policy on her vehicle.
