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


    Do you have a three-year-old with a broken nose? Broken nose injuries are difficult and painful for anyone to experience, but toddlers and young children can find them particularly hard because they don’t fully understand what has happened. They will experience the same swelling and bruising an adult would, and there is a chance they may not understand what they should and should not do.

    It’s always wise to go to casualty when your child has this injury, or you suspect they may have a broken nose. Checking for internal damage is very important, because you don’t want your child to grow up with problems caused by this injury.

    Treating a three-year-old with a broken nose

    Firstly, try and keep them calm. If they will allow you to use an ice pack on their nose, so much the better. Don’t give painkillers or even any food or drink, in case treatment is required once you get to the hospital.

    It can be difficult to keep your child calm in this situation. Hopefully, you will be seen quickly and you can see whether any real damage has been done. Since a cast can’t be used on a broken nose, it is vital you keep your child from taking part in any rough-and-tumble activities for a while until the healing process is complete. You can get advice from your GP or medical practitioner at hospital when the broken nose is confirmed. Following this advice is very important to ensure a good recovery for them.

    Finding out whether compensation is due for your child’s injury

    When you have a three-year-old with a broken nose, treatment is just as vital as it is for an adult if they are not to grow up with a nose that has changed shape or clearly been broken. They may experience broken sleep and be irritable while the initial stages of the recovery are undertaken.
