    Claiming for a five-year-old with a broken nose

    Kids get up to all sorts of things, but sometimes, it’s possible for them to have accidents that weren’t their fault. If you have a five-year-old, broken nose injuries are hard to deal with – both for them and for you. Staying calm is very important in this instance, because it will help them to stay calm and not panic.

    If you find yourself in this situation, try and stop any bleeding by holding a soft cloth to their nose and getting them to lean forwards. An ice pack wrapped in a cloth or tea towel is a good idea applied to the nose. While it won’t prevent swelling and bruising, it will help to bring them both out and that can reduce the pain in due course.

    Seeking medical advice for a five-year-old with a broken nose

    This is very important, because sometimes when someone has a broken nose, the injury can cause other problems. For example, a deviated septum may occur when the soft part of the nose separating the nostrils is damaged. This can lead to problems breathing, and since the child is young, no one would want such problems to cause issues for them going forward.

    A visit to casualty also means they can be checked over for other injuries, which is a good idea if they fell. A broken nose usually occurs through a heavy blow to the face, so an x-ray will rule out other facial injuries too.

    Can you make a claim for your child if someone else caused the injury?

    Yes you can if you have a five-year-old with a broken nose and suspect a third party was negligent. For example, should your child have been watched at a playgroup? Was there a lack of staff? Do you think health and safety rules were neglected?
