Broken nose complications can follow any broken nose injury. While many breaks will heal in a few weeks, some people will suffer complications that could affect them for a long time. For example, it’s possible to suffer injuries that permanently change the shape of your nose. Even with surgery, you may not look the same as you did before.
Another possible complication could be a deviated septum. This occurs when the wall between your nostrils is moved because of the fracture. It can lead to problems breathing out of the affected nostril, and sometimes both nostrils, depending on how bad the injury is. The only way to fix this is through surgery.
How much could you receive in compensation for broken nose complications?
Every case is different. The seriousness of the break to your nose, along with the complications you have suffered, will be considered when calculating any amount of compensation you may potentially receive. A personal injury lawyer can assess the likely amount you might be awarded, but even then, there is no way to tell for certain what you may receive until the case is concluded and is found in your favour.
For this to happen, it is important to prove a third party was negligent. This applies to all situations where a personal injury claim is a possibility. Negligence must be proven for a claim to receive a payment.
