    Different broken nose injury types explained

    If you’ve broken your nose then you may be thinking there’s just one type of broken nose injury, right? Wrong. There are actually several different types of broken nose injury, and the type you are suffering from will determine the treatment that you need – and could also affect how much compensation you could be entitled to receive if you make a claim. You may have suffered an open or closed nasal fracture, a septum fracture or even a septal haematoma, where blood pools in the nose and needs to be cleaned out to prevent infection from occurring.

    Can you claim compensation for your broken nose injury?

    The good news is that if you were injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence then you could claim compensation for your broken nose injury. Whether you’ve fractured your nose or injured your septum, you could be entitled to compensation not only for your injuries but also for any financial impact they have had on your life. It’s great that you’re considering making a personal injury claim, but how do you know who is liable for your accident. Imagine you are injured by boxes falling from a warehouse shelf and hitting you in the face, fracturing your nose. Who would be to blame?

    In this case, your employer could be held liable, as it’s their responsibility to ensure that your working environment is safe. What happens if you have been hit by faulty parts flying from machinery at work, fracturing your nose and causing facial injuries? Again, your employer could be at fault if they have failed to ensure that machinery at work is safe to use and well maintained.

    Will you lose your job if you claim compensation?

    You can’t be fired purely for making a personal injury claim after an accident that was somebody else’s fault. In fact, your employer will have liability insurance in place that is designed to pay out in the event of a claim. Accident Advice Helpline should know; we have dealt with hundreds of claims since we opened our doors in 2000, and we are here to make the claims process simple and stress-free. To find out more and see if you are eligible to make a claim after your accident, you can call us on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) at any time.
