There are many ways you could end up with a broken nose. Football is one such way, either through contact with another player, or by being struck in the face by the ball. It’s rare to have a broken nose while playing football, but it’s also not without precedent.
If this should happen to you while you are playing, the first task is to get your nose treated. You may have a nosebleed, in which case stopping that will be a priority. You might also notice your nose looks different, and if so, this will need medical treatment to put right. If your nose is left, it will start to repair itself and would then likely need to be re-broken to fix the damage.
If you suffer a broken nose in football, can you make a claim?
This depends on what happened and the facts of the accident. For example, was someone else negligent and kicked the ball at you even when there was no need to do so? Did you trip and fall and hurt yourself in that fall, even when you were not playing at the time?
The examples we gave above focused on you being injured in an accident that was caused while playing football. But you may also be injured if you are at a football ground and you trip over a hazard that shouldn’t have been there to harm you. If something like this happens, even as a player, you have a right to learn more about the incident and to see whether negligence could be proven to have occurred.
