    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Can you get a broken nose fixed on the NHS?


    If you have broken your nose, it will normally heal nicely at home within a few weeks. What about if your nose is crooked and needs surgery to straighten and reshape it? Getting a broken nose fixed on the NHS is possible and you should usually be seen to within 14 days of your accident, for the best results. It is possible to reshape a broken nose later, but the results may not be as perfect and the procedure may be more complex. You may need surgery if you have an open wound on your nose that has become infected too, or if you have suffered a septal haematoma where the nose fills with blood.

    Compensation for a broken nose fixed on the NHS

    The good news is that having a broken nose fixed on the NHS won’t cost you anything, but the bad news is that you may need to take time off work for surgery and to recover afterwards. You’ll normally need to wear a bandage or dressing for a few days after your surgery and there will be significant swelling and bruising that can make you feel self-conscious. If you are wondering whether you’re able to seek compensation for your broken nose injury, then it all depends on how your accident happened.

    If somebody else caused your accident then you can claim compensation not only for your injuries themselves, but also for any losses you have sustained as a result. So, for example, taking time off work after your accident could lead to financial losses in terms of your wages – and this will form part of your personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
