A broken nose can happen in all manner of situations. For example you could be playing a contact sport and have an awkward fall, suffering a broken nose in the process. However, sometimes these injuries can happen because there has been some degree of negligence. For example you may trip and fall over because a hazard was left on the floor at your workplace. You could hit your face and break your nose as a result.
Any blow to this part of the face could result in a broken nose. An accident might cause you to suffer one if you fall awkwardly or hit your face on something as you fall to the floor. Similarly, if you are in a car accident and something came through the windscreen towards you, this could break your nose.
Which situations could result in broken nose compensation?
There are specific circumstances under which it might be prudent to try and claim broken nose compensation. While all kinds of situations might result in someone making a successful claim, there is a common thread running through them all. In every case where a claim has been successful, the lawyer handling the case has been able to prove a third party has been negligent in some way. That negligence would have caused the injury to occur.
Accident Advice Helpline has handled a variety of cases whereby negligence was proven to have occurred. When there is good evidence of this it becomes much easier to settle a case, often before the court room is even reached.
