    Has a broken nose left you with a blocked nostril?


    If you have broken your nose in an accident then you’ll be glad to hear that it can usually be treated at home and will take a few weeks to heal. You’ll probably suffer from some bruising and pain as well as swelling and tenderness, but for some people a broken nose can heal and leave behind other complications. If a broken nose left you with a blocked nostril you may have needed to seek medical advice and even undergo surgery. A blocked nostril could be caused by a build-up of blood in the nose or even caused by cartilage damage to the septum. In most cases this won’t be anything serious, but it is still worth seeking medical advice to get the treatment that you need.

    If a broken nose left you with a blocked nostril, can you claim compensation?

    You can claim compensation if your broken nose was caused by somebody else. If your broken nose left you with a blocked nostril and you needed surgery or further medical treatment, you could find you’re able to claim compensation for loss of earnings, as you’ll probably need to take extra time off work. In most cases, a few weeks is all you will need to recover from a broken nose, but it could take longer if you need surgery or other treatment.

    The amount of compensation you’ll get can vary but you could claim for things like prescriptions for painkillers and travel to medical appointments as well as for your pain and suffering. Whether you were injured at work, in a car accident or in a public place, you’re entitled to compensation if somebody else caused your accident, but you only have three years from the date of your accident to make a claim.
