Among other components on the face, the nose is especially very prominent, projecting out of the face to facilitate breathing. Consequently, it is also most prone to harm in cases of accidental or intentional impact. The force mainly affects the septum (the bone dividing the nostrils in two), leading to situations like fracturing, breaking and even misaligning.
If you may have experienced injury to the septum as a result of another person’s fault, it is your right to make a septum injury compensation claim. This helps you get justice for the damage done and also provides you with the required money to pay for the consequent medical procedures. Call Tylers Solicitors today on 0800 699 0079 for a no-obligation chat about how we can proceed with your compensation claim.
How much compensation can you claim?
The amount of money you can get as compensation for septum injury depends primarily on the extent of the damage. Injury in the form of fracture to the septum without pain is considered moderate, and all the more if it doesn’t need medical intervention to heal. It nonetheless also requires monetary compensation, and this ranges from £1,500 to £2,000.
Displacement (misalignment of the bones) resulting from the damage is much more painful and mostly requires medical intervention. This can be compensated with about £2,000 to £2,500. In more severe cases, the damage to the nose may require that surgery be performed to get the nose back in shape.
They consequently attract a higher compensation ranging at about £3,000 to £18,000. In cases where the sense of smell may be lost as a result of the damage, compensation will range between £20,000 and £25,000.
How to tell the symptoms and get diagnosed
Septum injury comes with very observable symptoms. They include:
- Frequent nose bleeding.
- Pain in the face and especially severe around the nose.
- Congestion in the nostrils; it may be on both or either one of the nostrils.
- Nasal congestion.
- Noisy breathing especially while sleeping.
Most of these symptoms are usually accompanied by pain which may lead to headaches and even migraines in severe cases.
You should visit a doctor should you feel or see any of these symptoms. This will help remedy the damage, easing the pain and helping you breath better and easier.
