If you have suffered a broken nose is partly or wholly because of someone’s negligence, then it is logical to ask, “Can I claim for a broken nose?”. The short answer to that is, yes you can. A broken nose or nasal fracture is a painful result of facial trauma. Accidents are an unpleasant fact and we all accept that. An injury sustained from a broken nose can range from a simple fracture of one of the nasal bones to a displaced fracture requiring surgery, all the way to a total loss of sense of smell.
In most cases, a broken nose is a once in a lifetime injury and the embarrassment post-event often makes us overlook an objective evaluation of its cause. This is where Accident Advice Helpline can step in and help you. Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s leading advice helplines, endorsed by consumer champion Esther Rantzen for its fair practices and assistance to the public.
The friendly and courteous staff at Accident Advice Helpline will talk you through the event while asking a few pertinent questions to establish the cause. A case of possible negligence is grounds for a claim and raises the chances of a successful resolution to your claim for a broken nose. Accidents do happen and our specialists are trained to identify such cases. However, a major injury or permanent disability is more often than not a result of someone’s negligence.
Once probable negligence is established, Accident Advice Helpline will assign a solicitor from its in-house team and keep you updated on progress. With our 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500, we are just a phone call away. Accident Advice Helpline operates on a no-win, no fee* basis under the 1998 conditional fee agreement.

The next logical question is, “How much can I claim?” Keeping in mind its fair practice values, Accident Advice Helpline believes that this is an issue best discussed between you and your solicitor. Your solicitor is best placed to advise you on the claim value, once the facts of the case have been established. The short answer is that it will vary, based on the extent of the injury. As a rough guide, past awards have ranged from under £1,000 for a simple broken nose to £20,000 for total loss of smell.
