For many who experience a blow to the head or face in a car accident, TMJ may occur as a result. Short for temporomandibular joint injury, TMJ is an injury to the joints and ligaments where the jaw meets the skull. This can cause significant pain and discomfort to those it affects. The jaw may click or lock constantly, and affected individuals may find it too painful to even chew food. Sometimes, a mouth guard may repair the damage. In other instances, extended physical therapy may be required. And in the worst cases, injured individuals will have to face surgery in the hopes of obtaining relief.
The bottom line is TMJ is painful and can disrupt an individual’s quality of life. So if your TMJ was the result of a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, and pain and suffering.
