We all recognise that accidents happen. However, there are times when things happen that are not of our own doing. For example there could be an isolated chance you might suffer an accident at work that would not have happened if someone else had adhered to all the health and safety rules that should be in operation.
It isn’t just the work environment that could potentially lead to a problem. You might also be injured if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time. You could be involved in an accident that someone else causes, perhaps on the road, on the pavement or in a shop or other premises.
There are times when facial injuries will be sustained, perhaps due to the nature of the accident or the way it occurs. Some people have had broken noses or serious cuts to their nose as a result of falls in shops or out on the pavement for example. In other cases a broken nose or other nose-related injury might occur if you are working without proper protection and something flies up and hits you in the face.
Some of these situations might eventually lead to nose injury compensation being claimed by those who have had the injuries. A broken nose will sometimes lead to a changed appearance that can be hard to deal with. In other cases it might lead to problems with breathing from that moment on. Serious cuts to the nose can be very plain to see even once they have healed, which makes the injured person very self-conscious on many occasions.
Could you claim nose injury compensation?
Maybe you are wondering about an injury you have suffered in the past three years. If so, you must be able to provide proof that someone else caused that injury to happen. This could be through careless actions or even through inaction. For example if someone was responsible for maintaining a machine at work and they didn’t do so, leading to you suffering the accident in the process, you could make a successful claim.
