    Has your broken nose healed crooked?


    A broken nose is a relatively minor injury which usually heals with self-care at home. You can use ice packs to reduce swelling, take over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen and paracetamol and prop yourself up with a few extra pillows in bed to ease swelling too. The only time you may need to seek medical treatment for a broken nose is if you are experiencing symptoms such as clear fluid trickling from your nose (which could be indicative of a serious brain or head injury), if your nose won’t stop bleeding or if your nose is not straight.

    It’s easiest to have your nose realigned within 14 days of your accident by having a simply procedure carried out at hospital, but what can you do if your broken nose healed crooked? The options are to ignore it, or have a procedure to improve the appearance of your nose. This is generally less successful and more complicated than having your nose realigned after your accident.

    Can I get compensation if my broken nose healed crooked?

    If you have been unable to have your broken nose fixed, or if your broken nose healed crooked and you needed to take time off work to have surgery, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim personal injury compensation. We take into account a number of different things when assessing your claim, such as:

    • Who is to blame for your accident – if someone else is at fault, you’ll normally be eligible to make a claim
    • How serious your injuries are
    • What treatment you have needed for your injuries
    • How your injuries have affected your life – for example have you taken time off work?
    • Any financial losses you have suffered after your accident

    This allows us to calculate your personal injury settlement, which can vary wildly depending on each of these factors. If you’d like an idea of how much compensation you could receive, you can take the 30-second test on our website today.

    What do you have to lose?

    Many people avoid making a claim for personal injury compensation as they’re worried about legal fees, or going to court. Accident Advice Helpline can process most claims over the phone, so going to court is unlikely. There are no upfront fees to worry about, as our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim when you contact us for advice. Just call us today on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out more about claiming compensation for your broken nose.
