Damages for TMJ Injury
A TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) injury can be extremely painful and long lasting. This type of injury is often a result of a blow to the head or face that can occur in many types of accidents including car collisions or other motor vehicle crashes. Though other injuries may be more serious in a collision, it is important that you understand that you can get compensation for TMJ injuries as well. A TMJ injury may require special care that other injuries don’t need, such as dental care or surgery.

Possible damages for a TMJ injury include:
Medical Expenses: You can be compensated for any money spent for hospital stays, doctor visits, prescription medicines, etc.
Dental Costs: Many TMJ injuries require care from a skilled dentist who can assist in the treatment and care of your jaw

Loss of Earnings: Many times, an injury like TMJ can be so painful or require medical treatment that results in you missing work. You should be compensated for any earnings lost during your time away, even if you used vacation or sick days to cover time missed.
