Circumstances Where A Broken Nose May Occur

A broken nose could occur in a variety of accidents that weren’t your fault, such as:

  • A slip, trip or fall
  • An accident at work
  • An accident caused by 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 and both swelling and bleeding are 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.


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 team on your behalf from a specialist Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) consultant. The figures we have supplied are based on the latest version of the Judicial College general damages compensation guidelines.



  • A 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 – seriously broken nose or multiple fractures 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

As part of your compensation, you will also be able to recover any expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury. These might include loss of earnings, travel expenses or prescriptions costs. Once it has been determined that you have a valid case, your solicitor will take these expenses into account to calculate the full value of your claim.


If you’ve had a personal injury you may be entitled to compensation. First Personal Injury will help assist your prospective claim. We’ll work hard on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
