Work-Related Accidents Resulting In Injuries To The Face And Jaw

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome is a complex medical issue affecting the jaw and the joint connecting the lower jaw to the skull. Injuries to the TMJ joint can occur in a variety of accidents and often result in a lifetime of pain and suffering for victims. In some cases, surgery and lengthy physical therapy may be required to treat TMJ syndrome.

For people who have suffered TMJ syndrome in a car accident, workplace accident or other accident, obtaining compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering is critical. At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I have 25 years of experience handling personal injury and workers' compensation claims for accident victims and their families in Connecticut.

Impact Of TMJ Syndrome Following An Accident

Injuries to the Temporomandibular joint and parts of the jaw may result in:

  • Chewing pain
  • Popping sounds during chewing and eating
  • Locked jaw
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Dislocation of the jaw

The pain from TMJ syndrome can radiate down to other parts of the body, making it painful to complete daily tasks and activities. Eating, talking and yawning can be painful for those with TMJ syndrome. Proper medical treatment is important to take care of these issues and to make normal activities seem bearable again.
