If you have broken your nose, it’s not always necessary to attend hospital for treatment, but an official broken nose diagnosis can be invaluable when it comes to making a claim for personal injury compensation. Most of us only attend hospital if we have complications, such as a crooked nose or a nose which won’t stop bleeding. If somebody else caused your accident, then receiving a broken nose diagnosis is important. Medical professionals will be able to provide a report to personal injury lawyers if you later decide to make a claim, and this will count as evidence in support of your claim.
Accident Advice Helpline can offer further advice on the claims process and the evidence needed to make a successful claim – just make sure you contact us within three years of your accident, as that is the time limit in place to make a personal injury claim.
How does your broken nose diagnosis affect your personal injury settlement?
It may be that your broken nose diagnosis includes recommendations for surgery or other treatment. This can mean taking time off work to recover and have surgery, which could impact the amount of personal injury compensation you receive. Say you broke your nose after tripping over loose flooring in the office at work and hitting your head on a filing cabinet. Your employer could be held liable for your accident, and if you need to have your nose realigned, you may need to take a few days off work until you feel well enough to return. Your employer could be ordered to pay you compensation for your lost earnings over these days, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim the compensation you are entitled to.
Should you claim compensation for a broken nose?
Although a relatively minor injury, a broken nose is still debilitating and painful, and it can affect your quality of life. You’re entitled to claim compensation for any injury sustained as a result of an accident caused by somebody else, so it is well worth finding out how much compensation you could receive after breaking your nose. You can do this by taking the 30-second test on our website right now.
