The airbag impacted the left side of my face and ripped my earring from my ear (though the ear post was stuck in). My ear and jaw became severely swollen and the swelling lasted about 5 days. My face was cut/burned from the airbag. I remember telling the paramedics after they pulled me from the car that it felt like my face was bleeding. Yes, when I smile, talk , or even when my mouth is closed my parents pointed out that my face is "drooping." I only recieved a facial cat scan at the hospital and the oral surgeon did an xray of my jaw I believe. (no other xrays were done) My chin feels numb which comes and goes but the rest is just more of a persistent tingling feeling.
If it is some kind of nerve damage is that fixable?
