Types of Cheekbone Injury

The bones commonly referred to as cheekbone are the zygomatic or malar bones. Any damage to them can be extremely debilitating and can happen in a wide range of circumstances, including:



Sadly, assault is one of the common ways in which cheekbone injuries occur. If you have been hit with enough force from a punch or a kick, your cheekbone would be likely to break. Sadly, being an innocent victim of assault can also come with a lot of emotional trauma, including not wanting to leave the house or worrying about future assaults. If the perpetrator can be located, they will likely face both criminal charges and personal injury claims action.


Workplace Accidents

Employers have a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of all employees whilst at work. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is an act that puts legal liability on employers to ensure safety in the workplace.

A cheekbone injury at work could occur due to faulty equipment, a lack of safety provisions or slips and trips due to unsafe conditions. If your accident occurred at work and you believe your employer was at fault, you may be able to claim compensation. We know it may be daunting and quite worrying making a claim against your employer, but it is your right if the injury wasn’t your fault. Make sure you get in touch with our expert team of personal injury solicitors today.


Roads and Public Footpaths

Local authorities and highway authorities are responsible for maintaining roads and public footpaths across the UK and as such have a responsibility to make sure they are maintained to an acceptable standard to ensure safety for the general public and motorists. Therefore, if you have a cheekbone injury due to a poorly maintained road surface or issues with a path, you may be able to claim compensation.



The cheekbone, or zygomatic bone, is a rectangular shape facial bone. It extends from the side of the eye socket down to the jaw.

Its thickness makes it a strong bone, allowing it to support other parts of the head and face it joins to – near the jaw, ears, eyes, and skulls – and protect other weaker portions of the face. The articulations that connect it to the skull are not as sturdy, partly because of the passage of veins and arteries through a tunnel called the zygomaticofacial foramen.

This area is subject to a fair amount of variation. An additional joint is sometimes found in the cheekbone, dividing it into two sections. Individuals have also been found to feature an extra zygomaticofacial foramen, leading medical professionals to treat the additional passage as a fracture. This confusion sometimes leads to unnecessary treatment.

The cheekbone is essential in the support and protection of veins, nerves and organs in the face. While it is a stationary bone, its lower section aids the movement of the jaw, which is vital to provide functions such as speaking, drinking, eating, chewing, and facial expressions. Cheekbone injuries can be particularly debilitating in cases in which they impact these basic functions, and rehabilitation can be tough.

If you have suffered a cheekbone injury which has impacted the anatomy or function of the zygomatic bone, contact PSR Solicitors. Our specialist personal injury solicitors have vast experience in obtaining compensation for all types of cheekbone injuries, and can support you through the legal process of a cheekbone injury compensation claim.


Rehabilitation from a Cheekbone Injury

Following your cheekbone injury, the severity of the injury will be established with a medical examination, including an X-Ray scan. You will be instructed to avoid straining facial movements that cause pain, or blowing your nose.

Cheekbone fractures may cause a movement of the eyeball, especially in more severe cases. This usually requires surgical procedures to realign the zygomatic fracture.

Severe zygomatic fractures can show symptoms such as double vision, with extreme cases being associated with orbital blowout, causing similar symptoms to a concussion.

The similarity of the symptoms can lead to an incorrect diagnosis, especially in cases in which no cosmetic changes are apparent. Delayed or negligent medical treatment of a zygomatic fracture can lead to painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods.
