A broken nose claim is a fairly common personal injury claim. In simple terms, a broken nose is the result of a forceful impact between your nose and a hard object. This is referred to as facial trauma in medical parlance. There are a number of ways in which this type of injury can occur; the result however is always the same, an unusual (unless you’re a boxer) injury that is a little embarrassing. Accident Advice Helpline is the UK’s premier no win, no fee helpline. We can help establish if your injury is due to someone’s carelessness or negligence.
In legalese, to qualify for filing a broken nose claim, one needs to establish that someone who owed you a duty of care was either careless or negligent while providing it. A quick call to our 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 is all it takes for our trained and courteous staff to quickly walk you through the event and establish probable negligence. The terms ‘duty of care’ and ‘negligence’ can best be explained by the following examples:
- A person driving a car has a duty of care towards the other people using the road. If you are in a collision and suffer a broken nose because the other driver was texting, talking or otherwise distracted, then he has been negligent in his duty of care. Accident Advice Helpline can help you file a claim free of charge in cases like this.
- Your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe work environment. The employer has to have carried out a risk assessment of the environment and ensured proper maintenance of the facility. If you suffer injury and break your nose at work because the employer was careless or negligent in his duty of care, a broken nose claim can be brought against the employer.
- Public spaces such as restaurants, streets and shops also have a duty of care. If you’re walking at the mall and you slip and fall on a wet floor that hasn’t been mopped or duly marked with a sign, you can file a broken nose claim against the mall.
Accident Advice Helpline is your one-stop destination for all your personal injury claims. Our courteous and trained staff can quickly walk you through the event, establish probable cause and identify possible negligence. Typically, compensation for a broken nose claim can start from £2,000 but the amount that you will be rewarded will depend largely on the extent of your injuries and the type of medical treatment that you have undergone. Medical notes from your doctor will therefore be a vital source of evidence for your claim.
Once we have established possible negligence, Accident Advice Helpline will assign a solicitor from our in-house team of experts to your case. There are no charges for filing a claim and we operate on a no win, no fee policy. Consumer rights supporter Esther Rantzen endorses Accident Advice Helpline for our single-minded focus on consumer rights and our responsible, ethical and transparent dealings. We have helped many aggrieved consumers receive justice and compensation with a broken nose claim.
