A facial injury is a traumatic type of car accident injury that can cause not only physical harm, but also psychological harm. Clearly visible wounds can make it difficult for victims to go out in public or interact with others, some may even have to endure lifelong scarring.
According to the Louisiana State University crash data reports, about 28 percent of all car accidents lead to serious injuries. In Texas, a person is injured in an accident every 2.5 minutes.
