Toddlers are always getting into scrapes, and accidents can and do happen. But there is a distinct difference between an accident that couldn’t have been avoided and one which was caused by somebody else’s negligence. If your child has been injured in an accident at school or nursery, or in a road traffic accident, then you could make a personal injury claim. Treatment for a one-year-old with a broken nose usually involves self-care at home, but the hospital may administer pain relief and medication to prevent bacterial infection and reduce swelling, to make it easier for your child to breathe. One of the main concerns with a one-year-old with broken nose is preventing them from bumping their face and nose again, particularly if they have been provided with a splint or packing to wear for a week or so.
Who’s to blame for your one-year-old’s broken nose?
If you think somebody else caused your child’s accident, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. It might be that they were injured after a fall at a soft play centre caused by faulty equipment, or maybe they suffered injuries after a car crash caused by a dangerous driver. Whatever has happened, if somebody else has been negligent, your child does not have to suffer in silence. You could claim compensation not only for their injuries but also for your financial losses, as you may need to take time off work to take them to hospital for surgery and follow-up appointments.
