Can you sue for a TMJ?

by James Holliday, posted in Florida Vehicle Accidents

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a car accident or a trip and fall and you suffer damage to your jaw, known as TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, you can bring a lawsuit against the person who caused the harm. One of the things that we look at is, “What will the future care be for that TMJ injury?”

Oftentimes a dentist will need to make a splint that you wear in your mouth that looks almost like a mouthpiece that a football player would wear. I causes embarrassment and is inconvenient and difficult. Sometimes the TMJ injury will actually lead to the need for surgery. Those are all things that we think about before we settle a TMJ case.

If you or a loved one had been hurt in an accident through no fault of your own, please give me a call and I’ll be glad to sit down and talk with you about it.
