What is facial paralysis?

What is facial paralysis?

What is facial paralysis? Facial paralysis is nerve damage in the face that prevents the most basic means of communication. When someone has facial paralysis, they are no longer able to smile.

This often happens, and we see in our practice, when there is what is known as a temporal fracture of the skull. Or, the lower part of the skull below the temporal region. That is often associated when there is a fracture from blunt force trauma to the skull. And the blunt force trauma could be the result of a number of things, such as a car accident.

Experiencing facial paralysis can be stressful and traumatic. So, it is important to get in touch with not only a doctor but an attorney as well.

If you or a loved one has suffered facial paralysis, please come in and sit down with me, and together we will figure out if we have a case.

At Holliday Karatinos Law, we are here to help you through this process. That way, you can focus on your health and getting better.
