If you have broken your nose, you could be entitled to claim broken nose compensation if somebody else was responsible for your accident – but how do you go about doing this?

Why you should claim compensation if you break your nose
If somebody else has been negligent and caused your accident – for example your employer or a co-worker – then you’re entitled to claim compensation. Not only can you make a claim for compensation for your injuries, you could also be compensated for any expenses, so things like the cost of travelling to hospital appointments or prescription costs. We can even help you to claim compensation if your earnings have been affected after taking time off work.
