    How to pay for broken nose straightening


    If you have been hit in the face whilst playing sports, suffered a blow to the face in a road traffic accident or even been hit by objects falling from height from scaffolding, you may have broken your nose. A broken nose can also be suffered after a slip, trip or fall, if you hit your head on the ground or objects as you fall. Although most people can recover from a broken nose with some self-care at home (ice packs and over-the-counter painkillers), if your nose is crooked or the skin is broken then you may need to attend A&E for broken nose straightening. This is a relatively simple procedure that’s normally carried out within 14 days of you breaking your nose, after the swelling has subsided a little.

    Is broken nose straightening covered on the NHS?

    The good news is that broken nose straightening shouldn’t cost you a penny if you are eligible for treatment under the NHS. This simple procedure is carried out using specialist tools either under general anaesthetic (where you are put to sleep) or local anaesthetic (where your nose is numbed). It’s unlikely you will need any follow-up treatment although you may need to see your GP if swelling or pain in your nose doesn’t subside. If you are thinking about making a personal injury claim, you could claim compensation for the cost of travelling to medical appointments (including hospital parking fees) as well as the cost of any prescription medication, such as stronger painkillers prescribed by your doctor. You could also be entitled to compensation for loss of earnings if you have taken time off work after your accident.
