How much compensation can I claim for a broken nose?
Tripping, falling or being hit with something can result in a very painful broken nose. There are several different bones in your nose and depending on which one is broken will determine both the pain and level of compensation you may be able to claim if the accident was not your fault. In your nose, you have the two main oblong nasal bones, the septum which is the cartilage and bone separating the nostrils, the nerves that give us our sense of smell and the airway that runs from the very back of your nose through to the lungs. The bridge of your nose at the top is where you are most likely to suffer a break after an accident.
For a simple fracture of the nose where a doctor did not have to put the bones back into place, and it has healed with no outward signs and no long-term pain, the compensation settlement average is between £1200 and £2000. If the bones were out of line and had to be put back into place to heal, or there is a bump on the nose that wasn’t there before, the payout rises to between £1800-£2300.
There are some common nose problems, either caused by injury or illness. Here are just a few of the more common ones:
- Deviated Septum
- Nasal Polyps
- Nasal Fracture
- Broken Nose
- Fractured Nose
- Broken or fractured septum
- Cosmetic & Functional Nasal Deformity
- Post-Nasal Drip
- Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (Laryngeal Papillomatosis)
- Runny Nose
- Sinus Timor
- Stuffy Nose
- Nose Surgery Negligence
If you think you have broken your nose as the result of an accident, the symptoms are an extreme pain as well as swelling and bleeding. A doctor will determine whether there is a break or not and it is always advised that you attend hospital after an accident. The severity of the break as well as its position will also be documented, and this can have an effect on the amount of compensation you will receive.
How Do I Claim Compensation for a Nose Injury?
When you suffer a broken nose that is the result of an accident where another party is considered to be at fault, it is time to visit a personal injury solicitor to make either a nose fracture claim or a compensation claim for personal injury. As well as the injury itself, you may also be able to claim for suffering and pain, loss of earnings and costs of surgery & medication, but once again this all depends on the type of fracture.
Your injuries will be set out in an independent medical report obtained by your solicitor from an ear, throat, and nose specialist who will note the damage and report on how it is healing. This gives a more up to date synopsis of the current situation as opposed to when you were examined immediately after the accident.
