If you have suffered a broken nose due to an accident, after obtaining immediate and comprehensive medical attention you will need broken nose advice if you wish to claim compensation for the injury. While most nasal injuries are relatively minor, serious nose injuries often require surgery to repair and realign the bones and cartilage. As if the after-effects of the injury weren’t painful enough, narrating the story to everyone who asks is downright embarrassing.
For all the times that you will repeat the story of your broken nose, do it once more when you call our 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 and let us help in establishing if the facts suggest an accident or probable negligence. That is the best broken nose advice that we can give. It’s as simple as that.
From walking you through the chain of events, to evaluating incidence of probable negligence, assigning a competent solicitor from our in-house team, to keeping you updated on progress, Accident Advice Helpline does it all for you and our solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis. We are unbiased in our evaluations and only recommend filing a claim if we feel there is probable negligence and hence a reasonable chance of success.
Once Accident Advice Helpline has filed your claim, we strongly suggest that you keep in touch with us via our helpline. This is particularly helpful in case you are directly approached by the negligent party’s insurer offering you a sum smaller than your claim, as immediate settlement. This is referred to as third party capture and is a sign that your case is strong. Even if circumstances tempt you to take the offer, call us and we may be able to arrange part-payment while continuing with the claim.
The amount you can claim will depend on your injuries, extent of financial impact and the circumstances of the accident. This is best worked out between you and your solicitor. Alternatively, you can visit our site and use our claim calculator as a rough guide. Based on historical data, nose injury payouts have typically ranged from £2,000 for a simple broken nose up to £10,000 for an injury that required surgery, all the way up to £15,000 for an accident resulting in a complete loss of sense of smell.
