The claimant was taken to hospital following the accident and stayed in for six days. The child suffered from a fracture to her lower jaw and lost of some teeth.
Days after the accident she had an operation to fix the fracture with micro-plates and screws. During the operation the claimant had lost two teeth. A month later she needed further operations to remove an arch wire and five teeth.
Five years after the accident the claimant had another operation to remove a loose bone plate and vermilion on the lower lip. The claimant was left with scars that were permanent and noticeable.
