If you have suffered a broken nose as a result of an accident where someone else is considered to be “legally at fault” or “legally responsible” you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
A broken nose could occur in a variety of accidents that weren’t your fault. They include, but are not limited to, the following:
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. This will be done by feeling the bridge of your nose.
Once you have seen a medical practitioner, you should make sure that you get in touch with personal injury solicitors who have experience in this area.

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 following is just a guide to the potential levels of compensation:
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.
