    Did you receive broken nose NHS treatment?


    We’re lucky that here in the UK we have the National Health Service (NHS) to cover most medical costs. If you have been injured in an accident, NHS treatment will usually be available, although there is always the option of paying for private medical treatment if you would prefer. If you have broken your nose, NHS treatment may involve surgical correction, or having an x-ray carried out at hospital to check how badly your nose has been fractured. You may have fractured cartilage in your nose that requires surgery, or you may be sent home and advised to rest and use ice packs to reduce swelling. With or without broken nose NHS treatment, most people heal from a broken nose within two to three weeks.

    Is broken nose NHS treatment the only option?

    If you opt to have private treatment for your broken nose, this will normally cost you. However if you have suffered serious facial injuries that have left you disfigured, private treatment may be necessary. If you’re referred for plastic surgery or other reconstructive treatment then you may be able to claim the costs of this treatment back as part of your personal injury claim. How can you tell if you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim? Well, if somebody else caused your accident then Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a 100% no-win, no-fee claim.

    For example, if a speeding driver knocked you off your bike and you broke your nose, or if you tripped over files left lying around in the office at work and suffered a broken nose and head injuries, you could be entitled to seek damages. Your claim will take into account the severity of your injuries as well as any financial losses you’ve suffered, including the cost of any essential medical treatment.

    What happens next?

    If you think you may have a viable claim for personal injury compensation it is always best to check and be sure. There’s a three-year time limit in place for all claims, so we recommend calling Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after your accident on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from mobiles) to find out more. Our team of expert advisors will answer any questions you have on a no-obligation basis, and should you decide to go ahead with a claim, you will find our professional personal injury lawyers offer a 100% no-win, no-fee service. This means there are no upfront legal fees to worry about.
