Make a claim

If you have suffered a broken nose as a result of an accident where a third party is liable you may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Parts of the nose

The nose is primarily made up of two oblong nasal bones, the septum (bone and cartilage which separates your two nostrils), nerves (which give you your sense of smell) and the nasal airway which runs from the back of your nose to your lungs (allowing you to breath through your nose).

Circumstances where a broken nose may occur

A broken nose could occur in a variety of accidents that weren’t your fault. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Road traffic accident (RTA)
  • Accident at work
  • Accident caused through medical negligence
Symptoms of a broken nose

There are two main types of injury that can occur to your nose; breaking it and fracturing it. The symptoms of a broken nose can be very painful, with swelling, disfigurement and bleeding common. If you think you may have broken your nose you need to see a doctor as they’ll be able to determine the extent of your injuries. This is done by examining the bridge of your nose.

Broken nose levels of compensation

The level of compensation you may potentially receive, for pain and suffering, will depend on the extent of your injuries as well as the nature and duration of your symptoms.

This will be determined by an independent medical report which will be obtained by your legal representative on your behalf from a specialist Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) consultant.

The following is a guide to the different levels of compensation:

  • Simple fracture which doesn’t require manipulation of the bones to heal (no symptoms of pain) – £1,000 – £1,600
  • Displaced fracture (bones not in line) with manipulation required – £1,600 – £2,000
  • Fractures requiring surgery – serious broken nose or multiple needing surgery and permanent reduction in sense of smell and potential facial deformity – £2,500 – £15,000
  • Total loss of sense of smell – £16,000 – £21,000
